      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 would classify those as LBMs.  But, I've seen pictures lately of so called Fairy Ring mushrooms (Marasmius oreades) that look very similar to that.  Word is that they are edible.  I've spent no time researching them, though.  It might be worth googling, though, if you are curious.

Fairy ring mushrooms are edible...and they're actually pretty good (usually just the caps, though, as the stems tend to be stringy and tough).  Shortly after upping their life insurance policies, they're often ones I give to the (soon to be) in-laws, as they grow in lawns that can be replete with all sorts of funny chemicals. The park near my house is full of them. But if I know the grass free of chemicals, I keep them for myself.  We've got them popping up in our yard right now, so they're in season.

Those do look like fairy rings, but I've never seen fairy rings growing in anything other than grass, and I've never seen them with that odd ring near the outer edge of the cap.  In all my findings, they've also not been that densely packed.   I'm not sure what they are, but (I hate to say it) NoWiser just *might* be right.

I was just there yesterday, and I'll be in your neck o' the woods tomorrow afternoon sometime.  Last time I drove by, it looked like the City of Sauk Rapids was about ready to charge you a nice assessment for a little work they're doing on the street in front of your house. :)
