Welcome To Case's Column

Let me say a big welcome to all of you for joining me here. I'm going to call these blog meetings Case's Column. I wanted to use "Corner", but that was already taken. Since 2008, it's been a real privilege to come on here and share some of my life with you, and it's a big world where we live.

In these blogs, I'll just speak whatever is on my mind, but we will be playing within the rules here. I may pick a particular topic, point out an event, or shoot the breeze. I'm a little bit of an essayist at times, so I'll just speak what's on my mind, and I might tell a story or two. Or, I might spew out an opinion or three. There will be some serious moments, some tender, some poignant, but there will also be those moments that you'll just bust out laughing. But, hopefully, everything will be in good fun here. And, of course, there's a place below for your comments and thoughts as we go along here. So feel free to join me for the ride -- I sure as heck hope I'm doing this right and not making any mistakes.

Thanks for taking your time in reading Case's Column. Hopefully, you'll enjoy being entertained by it as much as I've enjoyed putting these writings together. And thanks for the time you spend in City-Data.com, where it's great to be alive!

Regards,

Imagine Getting A Discount --- Just For Being Nice

Life deals you some amazing moments, doesn't it? My recent road trip to Norman, Oklahoma, proved just that.

Now, sometimes, I'd go to a restaurant or a car service outlet, or a department store, or what have you, and there is either an unexpected surprise or there are unmet expectations. The result is sometimes a free oil change or a certain percent off of your purchase.

Well, this trip marked the first time in more than ten years that I'd been...

This May NOT Be A New Idea For A Texas Region....

Posted 05-29-2021 at 08:58 PM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

I'm sure you've heard of the Golden Triangle region of Southeast Texas. Sure you have. That area consists of the cities of Beaumont, Port Arthur, and Orange.

Well, not very far from that is the Houston-Galveston area. Imagine if you drew lines connecting the former with the latter. If you did, then, chances are, you'd turn that triangle into a parallelogram.

That's it. The Upper Texas Coast Parallelogram.

~~~(Sounds...

Memorial Day Must-Have, And There's Mustard In It

Posted 05-26-2021 at 08:34 PM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

Can you believe that another Memorial Day is right around the corner? Once we get to that point, the real staple of the last Monday in May has to come to the forefront.

Ol' Case needs to get a few more things for his hamburgers, because that's what's for dinner on Memorial Day. And one of the things I like to do is concoct a mixture of mustard and ketchup together for a decadent mix to go with the vegetables and, best of all, the meat. This combination has...

What To Do With The Left When They Hate America

Posted 05-26-2021 at 07:07 PM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

It's no secret that the left hates this country. It matters no more what reasons they have for doing so. Look no further than their words, their body language, and their actions. They hate America. They hate you and they hate me. Well, Case, you might say, you talk about it, but what we can we as a society do about it?

Light bulb....

NASA is exploring the idea of sending astronauts and humans to Mars one of these days. And they're also looking...

Case Almost Had A Seagull Land In His Lap

Rush hour in Dallas-Fort Worth, Texas, knows no boundaries. And in some cases, it includes that which flies above us.

So, your writer leaves work this afternoon and drives over to pick up a little supper from Panda Express, and coming off of Interstate 635 onto Texas Highway 121, there they were. It was a flock of seagulls dispersing from what looked like a group meeting. Guess they were visiting North Texas from Galveston. After all, they needed...
