      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 .

Lawn Invader - Need help

Recommended Posts

Can anyone ID this stuff?

I have patches popping up more and more each year and would like to get it out of my bluegrass. It is very fine and lime green in color. Patches range from small to 3 sq. ft.

Could it be grub damage? Peels up like carpet.

Looks like POA Annual, the only way to get rid of it is what the others have already stated, Round Up. Try to apply it only to the problem, use a small paint brush if you need to; this will prevent the Round Up killing your good grass.

One way to suppress the growth is to apply crabgrass preventer down this fall (September) and again next next spring. It will help prevent the seeds from germinating.

Based on the small picture,it looks like you have a nice green lawn. Any pictures of the entire yard?

Thanks for the help guys. I have some work ahead of me to get it all. Can you apply Roundup around tree's?

Here are a few pics of the backyard Icepro.

I was just checking out the pics of your yard.

Looks awesome!!

The only flaw I see is that your mower lines are off about a tenth of an inch.

Good looking yard, I like the layout of your patio.

I wish I could only be of a tenth of an inch,I hate crooked lines mower lines.

The use of any chemicals around trees should be used with caution. If you brush the Round Up onto the plant so no chemicals leach into the soil you should be fine.

As the others have said that stuff is nasty. I do a commercial property where I can't get rid of it. I thought I had sprayed it all with round-up the last 2 falls and it is back again. Apparently if you don't spray every single blade it comes back and laughs at you....... mad

    • What kind of speakers and how are the speakers mounted? Sometimes they have to be in somewhat of a "box" to create the bass. 
    • sent him a note earlier
    •   I have a Nils and love it, would recommend it to anyone. Although I've never used the K-Drill, I've seen enough positive reviews to feel confident you really can't go wrong with either one. The only exception is if you're reopening holes a lot (especially if you have a permanent house). The K-Drill seems to be better for that. 
    • You need to go to the dmv and register it as a homemade trailer. 
    • I have a 4 channel car stereo, that I installed in my wheelhouse. I only hooked up 2 speakers, the 2 fronts. I’m not much of a music person, more for news/ weather.  The problem is it sounds like dump, no bass, all treble. Is that because I don’t have the other 2 speaker connected? Can all the speakers be the same kind or does a different type speaker need to be connected to the other channels. don’t have much stereo knowledge, so any help would be appreciated.  
    • Thanks for the additional info guys.  I think the back right corner is where mine were too well done also. How about your experiences with Collagen casings - I used up some that were a year old, and they seemed to fall apart a bit or almost get a little mushy.  Should I stay away from old ones?
    • Surface tension should know this one? He's a Nils sharpening guy!
    • My Dad traded a boat last year for a wheel house and I would guess the house was never registered.  We mostly rebuilt it from the ground up because it was too wide to pull down the road.  Anyway, my Dad passed away early this year before he could register or use it.  It was handed down to me and I am a little confused how to get it registered.  I don't have any receipts for anything and it's 7.5'x12'.  So, under 3k lbs is my guess.  Any ideas?
