      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

    You know what we all love...

    When you enchant people, you fill them with delight and yourself in return. Have Fun!!!

Anyone Remember These Shows?

Recommended Posts

I know other threads have touched on this, but I thought it would be cool to start a thread about lost shows from our youth grin If anyone has a show they remember from their youth, go ahead and post about it. Just post or even better show a You Tube clip of it. If you have a show you can not put your fingure on, you can also discribe it and maybe someone will know the name wink

It does not matter when you grew up 40's, 50's, 60's 70's 80's pr even 90's. smile

I just took and 80's on-line quiz and had some cool flash backs grin If you where a kid around 1980 and where lucky enough to have or have access to cable, you should know these two shows. Man, what they got away with back then grin:

My favorite shows growing up were CHiPs, Dukes of Hazzard, You Can't Do That On Television, Hey Dude, Doogie Howser M.D.

One show I loved, but am horribly bummed that may never come out on DVD was The Wonder Years. Apparently they can't get the licensing for the songs that were used in the show straightened out.

I was a pretty big Wonder Years fan myself. I liked a few shows from back in the day....I loved Knight Rider. I have seen probably every single episode. I remember WAY back watching Fraggle Rock like it was an addiction.

Carp!!! I forgot all about Green Hornet. What a great show. I think some cable network, ALN(?)carries it on Fridays.

I found the complete series DVD's for Rat Patrol and now my son thinks we need to strap his Nerf Vulcan onto the roof of my Cherokee and drive around on Park Point(he thinks it would also be a swell idea if he was on the roof too, ah kids).

Batman and Kung [PoorWordUsage] (Kung Phuu?) rocked too.

OK? I guess I should of previewed this post. I am such a potty mouth.

    • Looks like the Hawks might be without Crawford the rest of the season.
    • We use a line voltage thermostat, with it set in the "cool" position.  Once it hits the set temp the thermostat kicks the fan on, until it gets below the set point.  Works pretty well.  
    • Strange I received our notification for WI yesterday but the page does not show any update. Either way WI permits are out. Already planning and getting blinds ready for this spring    
    • I have not used one, but they have attracted my attention. I have a wheelhouse but think this would be a better early ice option. Surprised at how pricey they are, but aluminum must be spendy! I think your ability to pull with the snowmobile will vary with snow depth, slushy conditions etc..... Studs will probably be helpful?  If you go that route, report back how it works!
    • I finally used it I was just testing it out getting the feel of things so didn't follow a recipe just cut up some Yukon gold potatoes zucchini onion and threw in a bunch of chicken breast. 1 can of cream of chicken and 2 cups of beer. Actual cook time after pressurized 12 mins. Some of the most tender chicken I have ever had.   Next day I made some jasmine rice and cubed some chicken breast and coated with sesame chicken sauce. Didn't think the sauce would steam good on its own so I put half cup of water as well. Then drained liquid when itt was done cooking and tossed them in more sauce before eating.   All in all I like it so far pretty easy stuff.
    • Well the switch closes at 115 degrees F so you will have to place it somewhere that It reaches that temp when you want it to turn on. I would say inside on the sheet metal top vent would do the trick if you wanted it hidden If not I guess just stick it on the outside of the vent hole. Or I am guessing it will close if you just stick it on the side of the heater just have the flat part of the switch flush with it I know my heater gets pretty hot pretty much anywhere on the metal basically I would take a bbq thermometer and find a place that hits 115 when you would want the fan to kick on.    As for the wire go to the hardware store and get some high temp like this its rated to 392 F   If you need something higher rated That's rated for 482 F    
    •     I guess when I made that statement I was wrongly assuming it would be much colder than that. In that case, it should be a nice October game just like a couple years ago at TCF. 
    • I went back the next day hoping the slush froze.  No such luck i guess water wont freeze at 31 below zero.  Sunday i tried moving my fishouse.  I kept breaking threw the slush. We hooked 3 widetracks together to my fishouse and still had to jerk the heck out of it to get it out. I did get a few crappies Saturday afternoon.  We picked up 26 crappies.
