      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 .

I've seen the Blue Angels in Fargo and it was an awesome show. This weekends weather forecast is for sunshine, should be ideal. One memory occurs early in the show when a solo jet streaks across the crowd at high speed. Impressive jet power.

I can't make it this year. Hope some of you will post pictures of what you see.

The Blue Angels are awesome, we're fortunate to see them every year in Seattle. They put on a terrific show, well worth seeing if you get a chance even if the weather isn't perfect.

Not everyone is a fan though, some of these people are pretty tired of them and their practice runs.

Maybe it's wishful thinking, but I think this pilot was looking right at me as he made his pass, we were in a boat on Lake Washington so I think it's possible...

Very tight crop:

Well the Fargo Air show has come and gone, and I have a terrible case of sunburn on my shooting eye. I guess, looking through my 100-400 into the sunny sky can do that to a guy when snapping 8 gigs worth of RAW images. Hard to follow some of those guys they are so darn fast. I will post more when My eye heals a bit. It hurts something feirce.

The sounds of jets is a missed sound up here in north Fargo. When we had the F-16's, it was a common sound. Even though these are Navy jets, it still makes a lot of north Fargoans stop and look up to hear the sound of a jet again. I didn't stick around town for the show, but I get a little bit of a sneak peak every year the show is in town since I work up at the base. The F-18 just happens to be my little sister's favorite of all the jets.

    • Got skunked. Gave up after the second day and went grouse hunting instead. Had better luck doing that
    • Real nice night Monday night.  International Space Station was doing a fly-by.  When it topped the horizon, it was over southeast Alberta and when it crawled into the earth's shadow it was over the east edge of Wisconsin in just a little over 4 minutes.  Not all of these have the same white balance setting.  I messed with it to see what I liked better.  The tree was light painted with a small LED flashlight.  Opinions and critiques are welcome.
    • I have a 3.2 L Cooks Essentials digital that I bought first. Not big enough. So I bought a 5.2L manual Bella. You definetly want to get a bigger one. As for manual or not.....less to go wrong with a manual. My Bella holds more food than the smaller one and works great. I use the Cook's Essentials only when I have 2 things to make. Plus the manual costs less. The Bella sells for about  $75. Digitals will sell for over $100. Four other members of my family now also have  them.
    • I guess I started this thread but never gave model name lol. I have the cozyna model air fryer its been great unit and so far non stick surface has been holding up well in dishwasher after every use. Super easy clean up.
    • We really didn't shop around much.... Just bought one off of amazon with good reviews
