Hey Shaggy - You haven't heard the worst of it buddy - The FM side of the radio is OUT ! Have you every --EVERY tried to find anything on AM ? I would just as soon listen to Slim Whitmans greatest hits all day as to listen to Talk radio ! - OR listen to the weather band - over and over and over !

Ya I remember you telling me about the radio issue yesterday. Looks like your going to have to suck it up and do what the rest of us do in these situations. Park the **bleep** thing until you get a replacement radio. ROTF

Oh and ECIN, I calculated it. It was from 0300 Friday to 1500 on Sunday. 60 hours is quite a marathon even by my double dipping standards. I've had about 12 hours rest since then so I'm catching up, also by my standards.
BTW, I had the chance to ride along all day this past Saturday in a JD 9870 shelling my corn. I know I'm a red paint kind of a guy, but I must say that was one sweet ride. Only thing I was scratching my head about was the 8R 30" head. He said he traded off the 12 for an 8 because it worked better in some of his rolling hills ground and it went right along with the 24R planter. The darn thing barely covered the duals. He had row guidance but it was giving him fits. He said me planting into milo stubble and splitting the rows was what the problem was. Still scratching my head on that one, if that is all it takes to row guidance issues I would say the technology isn't perfected yet.

Combining beans here by Randolph, MN. Not sure what the yields was. There's two JD out there comining - 2nd is in the dust ahead of the first one. Very, very dusty. Good thing it's windy here today.

Took this shot while picking corn about two weeks ago. Several young black bears out playing around. This corn went 205 bu/acre. It would have done better if not for the bears help, they will tear up an acre just to get a bushel.
