At 8:30am: I'm having a little problem with my posting screen today. So, I'm having to post differently. Anyway, here's a video of a discussion I had with Iowa's USDA-NASS Director. Interestingly, he says Iowa's survey showed higher ear counts and plant population.

Morning Mike just doing some thumb twittling on the floor today? A three day weekend is probably good right now. Does that traders theory work if the second Fri is before the report?
Keep up the good work, Jerry

Well Mike I've sold what I needed to to pay bills. I was wise enough to sell at $7.22 for dec last summer but dumb enough to not sell more thinking I'll sell it at $8.00. But it left me with more bushels in the gambling stash than I'm used to, which is both good and bad. I'm like a lot of people and should have sold more early last week. I don't see anything else coming that could be more bearish so I'll (probably foolishly) hold a while longer. This site has really been an education for me, I can't thank you and the posters enough.

Gee thanks for the reality check Mike. I've been thinking about options but it's jumping into the unknown for me. I really need to get educated on them before I'm ready. That is a good goal for me for this winter.
Thanks for the reports; Jerry
