How did your NFL football team handle the national anthem yesterday? Players from most every NFL team reacted to recent comments and tweets by President Trump by either taking a knee, locking arms or staying in the locker room during national anthem on Sunday.  We’ll hear about the TV ratings this morning to see how viewers voted with their remote.

We’ll see how harvest progressed last week this afternoon with Crop Progress report from USDA. It’s sure to have progressed rapidly with heat wave. Springfield, Ill., hit record 96 degrees on Friday. Temps were 95 on Saturday and 94 on Sunday.

I asked farm friends if they most enjoy planting or harvest. 81% say they like harvest best.
