      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 .

Not often we think enough about what we put into our bodies. One of my relatives from Finland(Swedish speaking area) posted this on FB.

eat good to feel good.

This is translated.

"We are digging our own grave"

The time is 18:00, a rainy afternoon. I go shopping in one of Trollhättan food stores. Wondrous and curious about what other customers have in their shopping baskets I walk slowly through the store, and thinking about how people really think. We would never fill up our cars with diesel if they went on gasoline but our bodies, those thoughts with a bit of everything. To cite an example, I read on one of the store's children muesli package the following:

"Can have a negative effect on children's behavior and concentration"

"Should it be like this?

Where are we going somewhere?

We are digging our own grave, I think as I continue through the store.

In my work as a chiropractor, I have increasingly become aware of the holistic approach, that is, to think more about the big picture. Everything plays a part; what we eat, what we drink, how we move, how we sleep, how we stress etc. I decide to do an experiment. I will explore how my body responds to two types of diet; an organic and natural dish consisting of chicken, cauliflower, vegetables and water compared to a dish consisting of instant mashed potatoes, the meatballs completed, ketchup and a glass of juice.

There I shall examine the blood sugar level and self-estimated health sense!

To my help I will take a well-trained and experienced nurse who worked for many years with cardiac / vascular patients and diabetes.

"A few days later, I begin the experiment by Kl. 11:00 lunch consisting of chicken stew made from natural raw materials of organic / requirements farmed species, blomkålsris, vegetables, and a large glass of water. After the meal, I feel good and I feel refreshed. 40 minutes later I make blood sugar test No. 1. This shows 5.3 in value. Another 2 hours later, I make blood sugar test No. 2. This shows the 4.8 value that is a diff of 0.5. The nurse mentions that this is entirely desirable numbers. The day rolls on and I have a well-functioning stomach, good thinking and plenty of energy. Later in the day I train a 60-minute workout consisting of running and weight lifting. Feels good! I go home to my dear partner, talks about the experiment and Kl. 22, we go to bed. I sleep like a log all night, as usual ....

The day after, I'm nervous. I will in my eyes destroy my body. I will eat instant mashed potatoes, prepared meatballs, ketchup and a big glass of juice, for many people a normal lunch. The clock strikes 11 o'clock and I go to the kitchen at work, opens the fridge and pulls out the lunchbox as I did last night prepared. I heat the food and start eating with mild anxiety in the body. I know this is bad for my body, yet I am curious to know what it does to me.

After I ate the food I feel relatively good. I mention to my colleague that "this may not be noticed in my body." What I did not know then is how the afternoon will go.

40 minutes later I go again to the nurse and do a blood sugar test. This again shows a stick blood glucose value of 6.6. I'm going out to fetch the next patient. During patient treatment, I start to feel a headache sneaking in. This headache rises and gets worse the more time goes. Another 2 hours later, it is time for blood glucose test again, this time showing the dipstick 4.5 that is a diff of 2.1.

After all the processed food and sugar I put in me, my blood sugar curve rose in the sky and my pancreas pumping out insulin to lower the sugar. Have you constantly high blood sugar levels, it can eventually give diabetes and heart / vascular disease, and damage to blood vessels and inflammation in the body.

The more the clock will be on this day, the more headaches but also the stomach, I get. I was going to train in the afternoon, but there's not a chance. I go home from work Kl. 19.00, nausea but still glad I completed the test on myself. I was quite sure that the values would be worse after meals No. 2 but I am most amazed at is how bad I was feeling. My body clearly attempted to say something to me like;

"What are you doing?"

I go to sleep in my bed Kl. 21:00, nausea and tired. When I'm lying in my bed I wonder how all the people in the grocery store where able to eat this nutrient solving, artificial and non-healthy food. How would their bodies feel in making a lifestyle change with the help of better food, more exercise and healthier habits. To say nothing of what we put in our children food with table of contents that reads, "can have a negative effect on children's behavior and concentration." I sleep like a log but wakes 4 times that night. Something else that never happens!

Its no wonder they cant build hospitals and clinics fast enough. Eating like garbage is at everyone's fingertips and very easy to do. It has become a bit of a challenge to eat healthy and give the body proper nutrients. I agree with what is said people in this country at least are basically poisoning themselves and their kids. I am not innocent of this myself.

Yeah it is our culture to eat junk. For the most part it is easier to find, store and prepare junk type food than it is more healthy foods.

And we are far from perfect on the eating thing, we do make efforts to not buy stuff like that. And I can say with certainty that if am eating well, I feel well, if we go through a stretch where we eat poorly(mostly when we are visiting etc) we notice I feel worse, kinda weighed down and lethargic and not a whole lot of energy.

    • We the People 1911   I am thinking this will be my next gun.
    • I have a question for all of you AV wizards out there. In my house I have 4 or 5  flat screen TV's connected directly to Mediacon cable. No cable box. The only problem to this is my channels are digital channels so Fox 9 is actually on 9.9 and ESPN is on 66.5, etc.  I just recently acquired an older flat screen tv for my garage from a friend who didn't want it anymore. It is about 10 years old.  When I hook it up to cable and try to run the auto programming feature it doesn't find anything.  Could that TV just be too old to do what I am asking? I can get a cable box from Mediacom but I'm trying to avoid that. Any ideas?
    • I understand that the block heater doesn't warm the truck. It does warm the block which in turn heats the antifreeze which circulates through the heater core. The quicker the antifreeze heats up, the quicker the heater in the cab is blowing warm air. I am simply trying to cut down on idling time in the driveway. During the week the only time it's driven is quick trips when the wife is not home. Her vehicle is what's driven most of the time.  My my main concern was leaving the pickup plugged in all the time and causing some other sort of issues with the engine. 
    • How hard has he been running this 400 HP rig? Might be as simple as a plug wire or might require a compression test. 
    • Get the choke adjusted that should take care of the cold start issue. A weak fuel pump usually starts to show up at high RPMs.   If left to idle the fuel pump fills the carb bowl, as you accelerate the weak pump can't keep up and the engine bogs and bucks.  A bad fuel filter will do the same thing and is often overlooked. You probably have 2 filters,  one on the gas line and one inside the inlet of the carb.  Replace them, don't clean them.   A  fuel pump pressure test would be the next thing to do.   If your getting the bog throughout the power band then I'd suspect something electrical but it could show up just at higher RPMs or load as well.  Condition of plug wires, dist cap, rotor, pickup coil, and vacuum advance.  1st check all the vacuum lines for cracks and loose connections.  Something that old is bound to have bad lines.  While your at it clean the PCV vavle.  Google HEI distributor to test the pickup coil and ohm values.   Check the linkage to vacuum advance.  You can do a visual on the cap and rotor but its hard to find a hairline crack.   Keep us updated.  
    • I was seeing the same things on the lakes in Roseville/Shoreview. I assumed that with the cold temps over night the ice was growing and expanding causing a few of those cracks to show up.  Maybe some of the light snow helped push the ice down enough to let a little water seep through.
    • Tried wiring the choke open at operating temp and took for a drive. Still misses at appx 45 mph. Always seem to miss about 90% of the time at that speed although sometimes at around 30mph. Next question,,, fuel pump maybe or possibly the EGR VALVE. Dont have a way to test the fuel pump but thinking with the way its hard to start I was thinking possibly low fuel pressure. 
    • Bald Eagle skimmed over on Saturday.  Today after the relatively light snow there are many areas where the cracks look like water came up through and discolored the ice.  At least that what I think happened. Since there was only an inch or so of snow I am surprised that it pushed the ice down and let water come up.  Anyone else have an explanation?
    • I am assuming it was either an Ion, SM Lithium, or drill setup... If it is, no need for a slush copter. I put my slush bucket over the hole... drill... then reverse. In 12" of ice I can do 6 holes with one dump of the bucket. Every 6" beyond that takes another dumping of the bucket.
    • I have the parts on order to get the unit set up for the ice.  I ended up buying a marcum lithium shuttle for my LX7 and then plan to mount the Helix on the shuttle that came with my LX7.  I am hoping to find walk-able ice in my area this weekend and hopefully the parts show up before then so i can give it a go.  I have the pre-chirp model of the helix so with a little luck i can get them to cooperate.
