      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 .

What's your salt and sweet vices?

Recommended Posts

Am not picky, especially when I drink, which is when I crave both…..so will go with anything breaded and deep fried with some sort of dipping condiment for the salty. If cheese is in the mix even better. For the sweet will say something with chocolate, nuts, and some type of caramely/nougaty thing.

I really crave McDonald's french fries to get my salt fix in, but when that's not readily available, some simple Lay's potato chips will do.

And I'm a chocolate whore, double fudge chocolate ice cream with chocolate chunks and brownie chunks will make me drool. Although most of the time I will settle for a home baked chocolate chip cookie or three with a glass of milk.

This my friends is the best of both worlds.......

Pretzels: pretzel rods, pretzel twists, hard sourdough pretzels, soft pretzels, pretzel chips, pretzel sticks. Mr. Salty are the best, followed by Rold Gold. Don't buy me Old Dutch, unless it is their pretzel rods.

Ice Cream is my krptonite! Frozen custard is best (especially Michaels Custard near the Madison WI area)

I'm not much of a salty craving person, but I have the sweet tooth to make up for it. Cherry Twizzlers are my downfall. If I open a bag, I have to eat the whole bag. There is no other way. grin

Satisfies both cravings at once.

Salt and sweet is just alright. It's salt and vinegar together that does it for me. Fresh cucumbers sliced up, soaked in a vinegar water mixture, with a sprinkle of salt on the slices. Mmmm. Salt and vinegar potato chips will work for that craving as well. I gotta admit I do like the Salted Nut Rolls for the salt and sweet craving.

Salted nut Rolls, Twizzler Nibs..........I just found the devil licorice though.....they are making Nibs "ropes" which are twizzler size nibs.

On a weird salty kick, I enjoy sardines on Saltines at times.

They used to sell (probably still do) the licorice ropes at the hockey rink when I was a kid. I would eat at least two if I had to sit through my brother's games. I would only go for one after my games smile

    • Yes, we buy the spray cans of olive oil,canola or whatever. I personally haven't tried fish but with breaded chicken I'm not a big fan. It works great when I make wings and non battered chicken. Just my personal experience.
    • That is a thing of beauty. I am speechless and if you know me........
    • Those are cool but I enjoy the amount of water that mixes with my whiskey when I put 2 or 3 cubes of ice in it.
    • That's why my wife is getting one for Winter Solstice too!
    • Milton’s put 1/8 on your house? Was that the new owner? Mines Miltona, 4 years old and came with either 1/4 or 5/16, not 100% sure but it wasn’t 1/8. 
    • I get what Del is saying to a certain extent. I would never buy a bottle of Pappy for $2000. There's no way that any whiskey can taste 40-50 times better than a $30-$50 bottle. I actually rarely buy anything over $35/bottle but that's just me being cheap. I do like to try the $50 stuff but have rarely found anything that I like better than Eagle Rare, Buffalo Trace or Maker's Mark. Actually one of my favorite Bourbon's is Jim Beam Black for only about $25 a bottle. That being said I couldn't care less what other people drink or what they pay for their whiskey, beer, wine or whatever. If you have a job and make your own money, buy and drink what you want. I don't know if that's true or not but I sometimes wonder the same thing about all the people who claim to like really hoppy beers.
    • Between the frig and stove its only about 2 steps    My kinda program !!!
    • like any addiction..........there are the 12 steps!!!!!!!!!!
    • awe............a Christmas present for the wife................so you can use it!!!! I see!!!!!!!!!LOL!!!!!!
    • Whatever gets you though the night.  If it makes you feel superior to drink expensive whiskey then by all means do so.
