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!

Here are just a few things gleaned from doing some obligatory sightseeing around the Houston/Galveston area this past week:

QuikTrip is slowly adding new stations in Houston proper. Online, I saw a little ditty about possibly getting some property near the Gulf Freeway (Interstate 45) near the South Sam Houston Tollway (Beltway 8). What is visible now is a sign with construction actually taking place of a new QT on the North Freeway (I-45) and Richey Road. I drove around...

I-69 Update: NE And SW, Houston Is Ready To Add More Miles

Posted 06-18-2023 at 08:20 PM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

I'm not completely sure what the transportation powers that be are waiting on, as the evaluation process is not supposed to take long while highway sections recently built to interstate standards await official designation and subsequent signage. Suddenly, I hear that ketchup commercial jingle entering my mind again....

While you're thinking about Carly Simon, I'm thinking about seeing Interstate 69 having more miles added to it in areas northeast and southwest of...

Ramblings (And Some Hard Truth) About The Shape America's In

Posted 06-18-2023 at 07:02 PM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

Things are not good right now.

And some things just aren't funny anymore.

You see all the filth. All the games played on us. All the arrows thrust into the air as our society is at war from within its boundaries.

My America, as you all know, is in very bad shape right now. Left-wing policies by a bogus administration who kicked the White House door down a few years ago have put a world of hurt in our country. Day after day, Americans are...
