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!




Memory Lane: Remember Kim Mitchell's "Go For Soda" From The 1980s?

It's amazing, the things you end up hearing on 80s on 8 that you haven't heard in a good many years. I probably should listen to it more often since the first part of the decade served, technically, as the soundtrack of my high school years. Just saying.

What I thought was the quintessential 1980s rock song...............turns out to be a one-song wonder in the U.S. for a Canadian artist. Oh, he had some hits in his native Canada, but one song played on the radio...

Astros' Maldonado Gets Two Immaculate Receptions As History Is Made

History was made in Arlington, Texas, and things were going right................for the other Texas team.

Forget my hometown Rangers. My team is the Houston Astros, and it was they who made history this past Wednesday by making their great season even better. For the first time in the history of Major League Baseball, a team had seen two immaculate innings pitched in the same game. An immaculate inning occurs when a pitcher throws nine pitches for strikes and sees...

Interstate 69E in South Texas is taking further shape. More segments of the portion which runs from just west of Corpus Christi all the way to Brownsville will see completion or new construction in the next ten years.

According to the Texas Department of Transportation, several projects will be underway soon, and all that remains once a bypass around Driscoll is complete, along with surrounding segments, will be the following:

Riviera Bypass

America The Beautiful As Only Ray Charles Can Sing It

Posted 06-10-2022 at 07:36 PM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

I don't have any words right now.

This country called America is under attack in ways never before imagined. You're probably tired of what you see on your television set or hear on your radio. And there's plenty of stuff on the internet to go around.

No, there are no words right now from me, because I'm tired and need to go to bed right now. I'll deal with the political garbage later on when I can do it. Right now, it's time for a song. ...

Case Is Just Wondering Whatever Happened To....

Posted 06-09-2022 at 07:37 PM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

....the chicken, broccoli, and cheese Hot Pockets? Where are they? Well, I have not seen them for a long time in any store, and I'm even wondering if they even still make them.

Aahhhhh, chicken, broccoli, and cheese Hot Pockets. You know, they used to be a favorite of mine many years ago. Maybe that's the problem, that it's been many years and your writer hadn't had much occasion to buy Hot Pockets in recent fortnights. Used to be, they'd be...
