      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 .

    You know what we all love...

    When you enchant people, you fill them with delight and yourself in return. Have Fun!!!

Big loss for St. Paul overnight.  Stasny's Meat Market on Western Ave in St. Paul burned down late last night/ early this morning.  Saddest part is one employee was in the store and didn't make it out.

The market was less than a mile from home so I'd swing through when looking for brats or to get my fix of meat sticks.  It was one of those places that has a LONG history and was a landmark for the neighborhood and the city.  When inside you felt like you stepped back into 1905's small town Americana. 

Thoughts and prayers from the man who lost his life, to the owners who lost their livelihood, and to the residents who lost their homes in the apartments above the store.  Sad deal all the way around.

From what I can tell the guy in the basement was an employee and it sounds like he may have been staying there.  The articles I've read aren't 100% clear on whether he lives in the basement or was there for some other reason. 

I'm sure a lot of people outside the neighborhood didn't know about the place.  Its small, unassuming, and easy to drive right by if you didn't know better but it was a great place.

He was reportedly staying there for a short time, at least.  

I grew up not too far from there, but far enough west we didn't get that far....    And we didn't buy much meat, what with venison, moose, and home butchered beef and pork from my uncle's farm.  Sounds good though.
