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,

H-E-B Expanding Further Into D/FW, But Closer To My Mom's House Than Mine

I'll preface with this: At least, H-E-B is making some progress.

The San Antonio-based grocer is expanding further into the Dallas-Fort Worth area, and I've said previously that they need to get more aggressive. Well, they're deciding things to fall in in two years now. H-E-B is finally delving into the Hurst-Euless-Bedford area (That's right, sports fans; H-E-B is coming to H-E-B), and they'll set their sights on opening a location in Euless next...

Now, THIS Should Go On TV For All To See

Posted 04-29-2024 at 04:02 AM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

Like me, I know that many of you are sick and tired of being gaslighted by career politicians who are only in it for themselves. They get rich off of taxpayers so they can live the high life as much as they can.

And then you have career criminals like Joe Biden*, who somehow is still impersonating a U.S. President (and not very particularly well) while continuing to trespass in a White House which he* knowingly did not win fairly.

That said, I saw something...

Case's Thought For The Day: The Eye Of What Beholder?

Posted 04-26-2024 at 08:40 PM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

Time once again for our Thought For The Day. Where will this excursion take us to now?

Perhaps it's to a place where you have your eyes on something. Maybe it's a someone. How do you view that person or thing? Is it attractive? Is it pleasing? Now, of course, this is highly subjective, as what one finds beautiful might wind up as something different to another. All of which brings us to this, our Thought For The Day:

Beauty is in the...

With Few Exceptions, A Lot Of Things Haven't Gone Right For The 2024 Astros

Posted 04-23-2024 at 07:17 PM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

Many sports fans and sports pundits are just sitting there wondering one thing: Is the Houston Astros' dynasty about to end?

You could say that it's a dynasty, and expectations going into the season had been high. Until the Astros actually get dethroned from the top of the American League West division, they'll be picked to win it. Many picked them, including your writer. The baseball season, mind you, is still early, but already, this year's Astros...

Finding Certain Products Online Brings Up Many Questions

Posted 04-23-2024 at 06:18 PM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

All I really wanted was to order some fudge pecan topping. Not just any fudge pecan topping, but the kind you get at a place called the San Saba River Pecan Company. That's in San Saba, Texas.

This thing started on a trip I took to San Angelo last fall. I came away from that trip with two jars of the San Saba River Pecan Company fudge pecan topping which were sold at Eggemeyer's General Store. That's how I know about the product, and it was so good. At the...
