      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 .

Pudge

Recommended Posts

Once again, Pudge was moved in a deal involving little or nothing. Can't believe the Twins have never asked about him. He could DH on a daily basis, and give Mauer a break once or twice a week. He still has 20+ HR possibility and is a .300 hitter as well. Tell me he is worse than Redmond

Anyone who say's they wouldn't want Pudge on their team is a dope. But you said "...moved for LITTLE OR NOTHING..." The problem is we had NOTHING to offer.

the glaring holes on our team are in the pitching staff and infield. not sure that pudge would make the team that much better.

Redmond is a company and Gardy guy and they're not going to mess that up. He'll be a coach in the system next year and the Twins will bring the kid north to be backup.

There is that about him. He is also the closest thing to a "club house guy" that we've got right now.

Redmond only has a job yet because he gets Gardy his coffee twice a day!! Punto has his job yet... Not sure why??

Pudge would have been a nice pick-up about three weeks ago... especially at the price he brought.

I don't know. Guy is hitting around .250 and hasn't hit 20 homeruns since 2001 ... in fact, he hasn't really gotten close since then. Not to mention the fact that he was named in the Mitchell Report, and he could very well be the next steroid story. Plus, I wouldn't call his price all that slim. The Rangers gave up a pretty solid pitching prospect.

so you gonna put kubel on the bench so pudge can dh??? If they were to replace redmond (which I think they should have) we already have a catcher in the minors that can play at this level. I know he's not great defensively but redmond isn't all that good anymore either due to his age.

No I would put Cuddyer/Span in center, Cuddyer/Span in right and Young/Kubel in left. Kubel isn't the DH on an everyday basis, so what difference does bringing Pudge in make?

    • Perfect that awnsers my question. Why spend $250 when I could spend $150 on a new lazer bit and cuts faster, it’s more durable but still about same weight and a chipper but. Really a no brainer. What are you seeing for drilling time with that 8 inch lazer?
    • From my experience one of my only complaints with the Kdrill is how slow it drills. It more than gets the job done but my laser 8” is faster.
    • So I’ve always fished 8 inch holes but really why? Most Anything can fit through a 6 inch hole anyway. I was thinking maybe for next season of getting a 6 or 8 inch I drill and putting it on my 1.5hp solo. Right now it’s about 24lb which is light but with the k drill it would be lighter yet. My question is would I be getting any more speed out of a k drill vs regular SM chipper bit? And then I can invest in a nice Milwaukee fuel and there we go.
    • Hi there, new here. Found this place because of this older topic.  We are planning a pole barn home on a slab. This is the 1st one in our township and the inspector seems unsure about the requirements for the slab "foundation" and insulation. When we started last year the old inspector said if the poles are through the frost level (42") you can just lay down a flat 4" slab. The new inspector seems to think it needs a foundation. Not finding much info online for this specific build. Plan as of right now. 4" radon pea gravel and barrier, 4" rock, 2" foam, heat tubes, steel mesh with 4" concrete over that. Someone here know the county (Isanti) spec for something like this? Township overrules county.  Thanks.   https://talk.newagtalk.com/forums/thread-view.asp?tid=376864&DisplayType=nested
    • BB gun?  Hows that for a 1st post?   
    • Ahh. Thanks for your story PRO-V. That’s what I’m trying to avoid. Plus it’s about 400 feet of hose to get to the banks...
    • A couple years ago I just got done plowing my driveway with the wheeler. Along comes an adult snowmobiler with his kid following behind. Guy crosses driveway and stops on top of opposite bank. Then he guns his machine sending all the snow back in the driveway. This is not a trail, just random ditch riders. Well I was outside and saw him do it. I jumped in my truck and cut him off at a road crossing 2 blocks away. I jumped out and royally chewed his azz and told him what a bad example he was setting for the kid. I think he got the message. For awhile after that I sprayed water on the banks to freeze them. No respect, they wouldn't want you doing that to their driveway. 
    • @Jim Almquist   How big was the larger Power Air Fryer and do you recall what those “easy monthly payment” were?  I’m sure the one we saw was the small one and was $100 on the shelf.
    • I bought the NuWave 6 qt brio a week ago. So far have used it to make onion rings and asparagus. It worked flawlessly for both. Frozen onion rings took 15 minutes at 400 degrees. The asparagus took 10 minutes at 375 degrees. I preheated the unit each time.  It really seemed to seal the flavor in with the asparagus. Could not believe how good it was for store bought.
