Maybe this should be entitled "the effect of media on our society," or something like that.
I just pulled out on SR 28 behind people in 3 cars, one pickup and a semi all talking on the cell phone as they went by. When I got behind them, another pickup came toward me and he was on a cell phone, too! What is up with that? Are we that lonely or dependent?
What did we do 30 years ago before cell phones? My life wasn't so chaotic and fast paced and interrupted by a telephone. Is this part of the downfall of man?
I know cell phones have saved many lives but how many got killed because of them? Cell phone accidents have over taken DUI or DWI incidents.
It struck me how our lives have changed since cell phones, Internet and computers took over most of our lives. I am not sure how good it is but that is sure the way it is.
We got another good rain and people are talking the drought may be over. I hope so. Many farmers need a good bean crop to make up for the lost corn crop. Lord knows we the people who pay taxes don't need our government paying out anymore crop insurance losses.
I have seen some awesome beans this week and one of them belonged to my own son! Good job, Matt. You have learned a lot about growing soybeans. It is one thing to teach it but a whole 'nother deal to do it!
Jim Porter took me to see 500 acres of awesome looking non GMO yellow hilum beans that will be shipped to Asia for a $2.15 premium. They probably have 80 bushel potential and with this rain should break 60 bushels. Even the double crops look worth harvesting now, a week ago they looked like gonners, I mean cover crop potential.
We just got back from visiting baby Katherine, what a joy! Three weeks old today! On the way, one of our corn buys called and told us we sold some fall corn for $8.25. LuAnn thinks we did good.
