      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 .

A little Humour "Groundhog Style"

Recommended Posts

I decided to add a little humour to this scene that I shot yesterday. There were two grounhogs foraging about in the late afternoon sun. I have to assume that they were a couple, one being male and the other female.

I fired off a few frames as they went about their task of munching on some dandelions and other vegetation.

Without being provoked, the one shown here sat up on "her" haunches and let out a chirpy sound of sorts. The other groundhog who I'm calling "Hubert" the little wimpy-hen-pecked male depicted at the bottom.

If there was a caption here here it would go something like this.

First the little female stands on her hind legs searching for the little wimp "Hubert"!

In this next scene, the look on her face says it all when she spots "Hubert" and then bellows out his name, "Huuuuberrrrt"!

...and finally here's little "Hubert" as he thinks to himself, "uh-oh" I've been made! eek

Hey guys, this was solely intended to give you a little chuckle, Lord knows we can all use one now and then! wink

Nice story and photos!

With the grassy/dandelion stains around Huberts mouth, maybe she is yelling at him to use some manners, or to quit making such a "hog" out of himself. gringrin

I noticed them, too, and wondered if they were intoxicating to groundhogs. Could explain the reaction from the Mrs. Very cute, nice photos, too.

Ha! I haven't been on this site since I replied earlier today, so I didn't even catch the mixup. grin

We are busy getting ready for my oldest daughter's graduation open house coming up on Saturday. She actually graduated last Friday, but she wanted to attend most of her friend's receptions, so we are holding off for a week. Time spent on the internet will be short until late Sunday when the relatives all head back home.

    • Yes!  There is no question the eclipse will affect fishing! The eclipse will draw peoples attention away from fishing and the casual angler will be all wound up about watching the event. They will not be paying attention to anything else and surely not to fishing. The result will be far fewer anglers on the stream and YOU will have more room to fish and less competition. THAT is how the eclipse will affect fishing.
    • Lots of bears being seen around Princeton not on baits just roaming around.
    • Because Sleeper's always have had good produce...and obviously, I just went there. I went to school with them, know how they do their produce. They been around a long time. Wouldn't have  4-5 people  standing there buying if it was lousy. I had to wait the other day. Word gets around fast on small stands.Your statement applies to just about anything...sometimes a restaurant has a good meal, next time it's mediocre. You'd still go there, right? You're going to have some years the corn is better than others, you can't change the weather. This happens to be a good year for the sweetcorn, both places told me.  What would be different at Seneca? It still comes out of a field there, too. Who knows how fresh it is? I'd go with a pickup truck just pulling in, with the corn still cool and damp, before I'd grab some from a pile at Seneca. That's the only time I go, early am, when it's fresh.  OK, so do four ears at about 6 mns then....ya can handle that, right? All I intended was to give ya a tip where to grab some good corn...
    • I cook more than two at a time.   And how can you recommend someplace you haven't been to in a decade?   Like I said, I have gotten good corn there and I have gotten mediocre corn there.   Might be fresh picked, but sometimes I think maybe the field was past its prime when they fresh picked it.   Ever try the corn from Seneca?   They have a little office across 3rd Ave from the plant where they sell corn sometimes.      
    • Because it was about a decade ago I was on that goofy end of town. I knew it. Now yer gonna  waste time fooling around with that souse-o-matic on that poor corn, when two ears in the 'wave, in a covered glass dish with some water for around 3 minutes comes out perfectly delicious. 
    • Let us know by first ice - just saying.  But he is great to work with so don't get me wrong.
    • 3 smallies in 30 min yesterday. 
    • That is the truck that I always buy from, they park at the detailing place that used to be a car wash.  Why were you talking about Super America? They haven't been there for a decade. But either one would be a pretty long drive at the moment. Might have to try sous vide on some...when I get there.
