    This past week has been perfect weather for the farmers who have been busy long hours harvesting their grain. I noticed the headlights of a neighbors combine until about 10 o’clock the other night. It is amazing to us to see the progress made in farming, compared to that of our parents, and for some of us, ourselves, when everything was done with horse drawn implements.
