      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 .

Aldi and a Movie Review

Recommended Posts

This Aldi joint is wearing thin on me.  I had to run an errand and ended up driving by Aldi and went in to find something for dinner.  We hadn't had pork chops for a while and as I was looking I noticed a 1/2 price sticker was on the package.  About 3 pounds of pork chops for about $7 was a deal enough for me but at 1/2 price since they expired Dec 31 I bought two packs.  Figured thin cut chops could work in Labs kraut thing or whatever.  They were terrible and I'd say a scam.  The first pack had 6 "chops" the two on top you could see looked like normal bone in chops, the bottom four looked like smallish shoulder steaks full of fat.  I fed the normal ones to my wife and daughter and I ate the other, worst pork chop I've ever had it was about 1/2 fat throughout.

Movie- saw the Hateful Eight last night.  I'd say a good to very good movie and since it's Western style it makes it more interesting.  Some bizarre but pretty funny "slapstick" moments in it, plenty of blood, and Bruce Dern (the bad guy who killed the Duke in The Cowboys) is in it.  It's pushing three hours long but only a couple slow moments in it but I have a short attention span.  My wife liked it too.  Hollywood in general dislikes it which is reason enough to see it, I can't remember why but people are offended by something.

Kurt Russel is in it Del and he's been going on about the leftys dumb stance on guns so that balances it out.  If you didn't watch any movies due to political reasons you'd only have Focus on the Family productions available.

Too much violence at Aldi's and Kurt Russell eating bad pork chops? Geez it's hard to keep up with you guys! ;) :D

Have not made it to an Aldi's yet. One in Owatonna not far from the East Wind Chinese buffet. Plenty of meat in my own freezer usually although I am intrigued by the mention of cheap liquor at Trader Joe's. Can go across the border and buy duty free stuff only so often. I see a couple westerns flicks advertised on the tube lately. Wife hates westerns so will have to wait until they show up on TV.

Only in a few cases does politics matter.  I won't watch Jane fonda.  Tarantino is too much into violence and gore for my taste. 

But, my previous post was speculation about the negative reviews. 

 

And to stay on topic :D I find Aldi stuff to be hit or miss.

    • Looks like a squid attacked the brisket.
    • Much better results this time. Nailed it!  
    • Gibson and Butler showed what good defense looks like last night.  Now can the others follow suit? Teague, is not off to a good start.  i would rather watch Jones than Teague.  Not 1 thing looks good with him.
    • What lens you use for the night sky pictures? I really like them.
    • And finally some finished pictures. Rod holders in the back rests of the rear dinette. UV lights in bench for charging glow in the dark jigs. Switches next to the radio control the outdoor speakers and the other controls the exterior strobe lights. I have a strobe controller wired into the trailer lights. I did LED strip lights instead of the traditional individual hole lights.
    • I have been building a fish house and have decided to share it on here sense so many of you (Especially Lip_Ripper) have helped me out so much. I used basically all of the same building techniques Lip_Ripper and a few other guys on this site have used. Stole a few ideas from some of you but hopefully no one gets too worked up over that. I have everything except the bathroom, plumbing, lift bed, and awning done. It is 100% a fish house right now, ready for ice and I can't wait to get it out! Frame- 8X21' +4' V Valley Manufacturing galvanized hydraulic Walls/roof- 1x2" rectangular tubing Siding- Flat black aluminum held on with 3M adhesive tape Roof- 3/8" plywood covered with rubber membrane Floor- 3/4" marine grade plywood Insulation- Closed cell spray foam   One piece aluminum wheel wells.  1/4" cedar tongue and groove. At this point I was still undecided if I was going to stain it or not and sense I did end up staining it I should have just used pine. Looking back on it now it could have saved me a few bucks. The start of staining. I used Sherwin-Williams Pecan.
    • Pine County is full of them!
    • My dad made a return trip to the same area yesterday. He saw 3 birds, but didn’t get any shots off. Pretty encouraging he’s seeing a lot of birds in that area. We’re heading up to Grand Marais on Monday for the week, should be good times!
    • Good thing they’re playing the late game today. Give the weather a chance to clear up. As much I like watching games in the rain, 3 weeks in a row is enough!
    • At least the twins won’t have to worry about Detroit being a threat for years to come. Gardenhire and rebuilding just don’t go together.
