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,

Frisco Band Night Gets Longer........And Longer....

Those of you who are close to where I live have opportunities to see good local events. In Frisco, Texas, there's a place to go see some fine high school bands every year. I got the chance to go to Frisco ISD (Independent School District) Band Night out at Ford Center at The Star.

An event which began five years ago as a two-hour extravaganza is now two and a half hours long. The district now has eleven high schools, so that's why the event is as long as it is, but...

Some Things Change, And Other Things....

.......stay the same. But isn't that life for you?

I couldn't really come up with an appropriate title explaining what I'm about to explain. I've been on City-Data for fourteen years now, and only recently, I've drifted away from the posting aspect on our forums. Oh, I might pop up every here and there on the Food forums or what have you, but there comes a time when one runs out of gas.

Let's face it, sports fans: This writer just got tired. ...

It Doesn't Take A Rocket Scientist To See Who Is On What Side

Posted 09-27-2021 at 08:43 AM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

The evidence you see in America could not be more clear than right now. All you have to do is take a look at One America News, Newsmax, and the Epoch Times and how the news is covered there, and then measure it up to the Fake News sources (ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, USA Today, and just about every newspaper publication out there). As for Fox, well, they can't decide whether to be objective or not, but since they bungled the 2020 presidential election, you can be assured that they are...

Case Answers The Big Questions On C-D

Posted 09-22-2021 at 04:44 PM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

Here's something for you. I spotted a perfectly legitimate thread starter on our Alcohol forums, and the question posed was this:

"Are you concerned about your liver?"

Fair enough question, as it is an important concern for those who like strong drink.

I've got the answer coming up.

Let me remind us all the question:
Are you concerned about your liver?

My reply is this:

What To Expect If San Francisco Wins The World Series

Posted 09-20-2021 at 07:06 PM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)
Updated 09-20-2021 at 07:16 PM by case44

The San Francisco Giants have spent the 2021 season as Major League Baseball's biggest surprise, amassing the league's best win-loss record up to this point in the campaign. Suddenly, they are a big contender for the big prize come October.

Obviously, they'll need to get through the playoffs and face the best team the American League will be offering should they get to the World Series, whether that be the Houston Astros, the Tampa Bay Rays, the Chicago White Sox, or,...
