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,

Here's Another Example Of Why Computers Should Never Run Radio

Every so often, this writer sometimes changes his radio-listening repertoire a little bit. On my computer at home near Big D, I love streamlining stations from across the country, and this time, I ventured onto a channel out of Midland, Texas.

Yes, I spent some time listening to KCRS-AM (550), and they were doing a series of news programs; local, national, and state. By the time KCRS got to its portion with The Texas State Network news, as time went on, there...

Case Finally Finds................An Energy Drink That He Likes

Posted 07-24-2021 at 08:46 PM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

I just keep wondering why it took so long for me to find a decent energy drink. Not only that, but one which actually has natural ingredients.

A few weeks ago, I appeared to have found a perfect complement to my morning lattes, and that is a product called Celsius. Some of you may have heard of this, but it really is an energy drink. Due to my advanced years (a.k.a old age ), Ol' Case has to have his alternative to flavored water to get an extra kick during...

As TXDOT Studies Improvements In East Texas, Let's First Look At The Rest Areas

Posted 07-19-2021 at 05:40 PM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

In Texas, we have a lot of old highways, but the good thing is, we've invested in making improvements through the years. We're not exactly done yet, as there is still some significant highway mileage in need of upgrades.

The Texas Department of Transportation has been busy trying to keep mobility in peak form all over. As the focus shifts to East Texas and, in particular, Interstate 20, it appears the needs are greater than ever. It's a relatively old highway in...

America, It's Time To Ditch Those Masks

Posted 07-13-2021 at 05:45 PM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)
Updated 07-24-2021 at 08:47 PM by case44

You know, folks, COVID has been on the wane for some time. I'm glad to be living in a state like Texas which didn't stay shut down for too long of a time back when things did get bad.

We've long since reopened and even dropped our mask mandate. Nanny-nanny, boo-boo! So, now, those in America who are still shut down, please, come on and get opened up again. At this point, whatever reasons they (mainly some blue states) have of remaining shut down aren't even...

Tampa Reigning Supreme (For Now) In The Sports World

Posted 07-08-2021 at 10:04 PM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

I'd say the last few years have been pretty kind to the folks in Tampa, Florida, in terms of good fortune in sports. Take a look just in the last year at what's been accomplished on the western Florida coast.

The Buccaneers won the Super Bowl earlier this year. The Lightning just earned their second straight Stanley Cup. And the Rays won the American League pennant this past year but did not win all the marbles in the World Series. Still, however, this showing is...
