      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 like the locally produced brats from Morgan's in town here the best. Local business and a wide selection. Also an award winner. Plus they process our lambs. Very pleased with how we're treated in that department. 

For grocery store stuff:

When I do my "anal" meeting I get a case of Ambassador weenies from the local grocery store. Been eating them since I was in college although in those days it was "splurging". Got tired of eating Corn Kings and ramen! Have also had some decent Hillshire Farms weenies from the store too but he's not carrying those anymore for whatever reason. Get along OK with fresh Johnsonvilles but the smoked models are just glorified weenies with collagen casing. That's what Mrs. Cheviot bought the other day. OK but not what I buy typically.

Schweigert old-fashioned coarse ground with casing, for weenies. Can't do store bought mushy brats anymore, after having RH's real ones. Might try some from the local butcher shop........

we're having hot dog night tonight. Talked about it yesterday.  I like the ambassadors too.  We'll watch the Wild and eat dogs.  My son and I mock the announcers when they say "Playoff Hockey" when a guy blocks a shot.  We also have decided to complain about every call by refs and linesman.  It makes the loss more entertaining when you claim you were screwed by the ref.  I've gone years of trying to not be a homer in every sport and just now realized it's no fun being that way.  The linesman take 25 seconds to drop the puck, boot centers out and then after a goal the ref drops the puck with both sets of wings 5 feet away crosschecking each other at the same time.  Parise has an "upper body injury"?  Tell me where, what, how it happened, let's go!

Ok, back to wiener talk.  Sorry.

I used to be in the Ottertail Rod and gun Club.  We just did community event type of things to earn money to better the community.  Fun group of guys.  One of the things was we ran the Demolition Derby.  They told me they ran out of hot dogs every year.  They kept buying more of them but everyone loved them and ate them all.  They got the Ambassador skin on ones and cooked them in a few of those big white roasters.  Everything tastes good out of them.  They had them covered with beer and completely smothered with sliced onions.  I mean smothered, you had to find the dogs in the onions and of course put some onions on the dog too.  Well they simmered them for hours and they were awesome...

I have only bought some skinnless hot dogs when the grandkids were small and  that's all they wanted.  Other than that I haven't bought any sausage for many years.  Now the grandkids are into my stuff, so one reason I make stuff all year long.  I believe that anyone who makes there own sausage as far as a buisness has better sausage than any comercial brand you can buy.  Any local meat market has them beat.  They depend on their customers to keep coming back so they make good stuff.  Stores have a large variety and are so full of fillers, that the quality is just not there.  Ambassador wieners are about the best product out there as far as commercially made.   I worked for one year [when I first started out in the buisness] there when they were located next to Rudolf BBQ downtown.  I think it was near Central Ave and Hennepin ave.  Still had the original owners there at the time.  They made the best ring bologna back then called A bologna.  good luck.

I just looked up Ambassador...and found out they are "Ambassador/Wimmer meats"  I love, and can only find one store here that carries Wimmer's Braunschweiger. Just bought a slab Saturday!  Best  b'schwieger ever, been eating it for years. :)

I've got a couple good local meat shops near me up here.   In Cloquet itself is B and B market.  They usually have about 20+ types of home made brats, and several types of dogs.  Just an all-around good meat market.

Just down the road a little ways is T.J's Country Store in Mahtowa.  You might have seen a billboard for them if you drive up/down I-35 to Duluth.  Their saying is "Our Wurst is Best" :D   All of their stuff is homemade and they always have a good variety to choose from.

plenty of space in the "off topic" thread for that kind of rambling as Smurf suggested.  We'd like a little tighter ship to be run around here but we're just plebes.

I'd take Myron over Maynard.  Btw I had some hunters stop by and ask permission to hunt my oat field.  I denied permission and used the "my nephew is coming back from the Marines and I promised him first" line.  Us farmers never actually say no, we just use an excuse.  Also my wife is Little Debbie, Little Delbert is too close.

Another vote for Ambassador. But they have to be the all beef wieners. Firmer that the other Ambassador's. My family of kids and grandkids turn up their noses at anything else.

I had a Great Uncle Roy. He was a bootlegger. Got squashed by a tree when he was cutting it down. Myron is a good one. A few Delmer's and Elmer's around here. Norbert's, Ole's, Sven's, George's, Stanley's, Darrel's, and Hank's too. Also some O'dean's. Not sure why they had to add an O' to the Dean but they did.

Yes, excuse making is crucial. It's a valuable asset when dealing with religious groups, insurance, fertilizer and other pesky salespersons. Notice I said "salespersons". The latest fad is to send some foxy babe out to convert you or sell you stuff because the powers that be think they'll get in the door where some high pressure guy won't make it past the front porch. After being pursued by Mrs. Cheviot all these years, I am a master of deception. I'll tell them I'm a Rastafarian, just the hired hand or in the case of the fertilizer guy, that I'm organic and show them the huge manure pile. :P 

So that's your wife's pic on the snack cakes? I thought she looked familiar! 

What was the topic again? :lol:

I used salesperson on here the other day.  I'm done with all that mumbo jumbo stuff.  For example, I just went driving with my daughter and we ran into a buddy of mines wife.  She's a stewardess for Delta, not a flight attendant.  My daughter almost ran over a gal in the parking lot that decided she'd exercise her pedestrian right of walking in front of a car.  That works great unless the driver is 15 and a little flustered looking for a parking spot.  The gal gave my daughter the look and my daughter apologized.  I added to the gal that she's 15 and learning and that getting run over in the parking lot is a bad way to prove that you have the right of way.

Back on my point I'm worn out on this PC stuff and I'm not saying it for any Trump reasons.  The straw that broke the camel's back for me was this weekend when ABC News was falling all over itself with a story on a reporter of theirs that got married.  He married another guy.  I could care less if people are gay but if a male ABC reporter married some gal you'd hear nothing about it.  Star and Trib will do a story on three couples that remodeled their house, two of the three couples end up being gay.   I'm so tired of it all that I'm wishing gay people would go "old school" and just stay in the closet and lead a secret gay life.  At least it would be a refreshing change.   Did I mention I could care less if people are gay?  I don't care but if I didn't know better 67% of people are gay if I based it on what I read in the news.  

Ok...back to wieners. :)

    • It's dinner and supper!
    • My wife loooves Beets. Here's my recipe Lot of beets, as many as you can fit in to a large boiling pan. .add 1 cup draino .add 1 cup muriatic acid .heat with a blow torch throw off hwy over pass so they get tender under semi truck tries for one hour. Then go get some food and have a Beer! Enjoy! Hate um!      
    • The guy who told me this said teal were in big groups and he saw a few hundred
    • Just cuz they're flying that direction don't mean the migration started!   Summer-like temps again this year for the opener.  I don't think they're bugging out yet.  Last year I saw teal in NE MN in the 3rd week of October! I have enough shells and some calls I suck at blowing, along with decoys that sport my initials and '87 so I guess I'm as ready as every other year!
    • Never heard of one where ya DON'T cook the beets....but who knows? Here's one I used years ago... EASY PICKLED BEETS (1 Quart) 2 bunches small beets – ends trimmed and scrubbed 4 small onions – sliced and separate rings ½ cup liquid from boiled beets ½ cup white vinegar ½ cup honey – go local! ¼ teaspoon salt ¼ teaspoon cinnamon or cinnamon stick ¼ teaspoon cloves Bring beets and enough water to cover to a boil over high heat.  Reduce to medium and continue to boil for 45 minutes.  With 5 minutes remaining on beets add onion slices.  Drain beets and onions, reserving ½ cup of the liquid, set aside. While the beets and onions cool add beet liquid, vinegar, honey, salt, cinnamon, and cloves to medium sauce pan and bring to a boil. Peel beets (this should be easy once they are cooled), and slice.  Add sliced beets and onions to a Mason jar, or air tight container of your choosing.  Cover beets with boiled liquid, cover, and refrigerate at least 24 hours before eating.  I prefer them after about 72 hours.  
    • If that's lunch, I'd love to see dinner!! 
    • We can't find our recipe for pickled beets. Haven't done this for a couple of years.  Wife and I both certain we didn't cook the beets.....we just packed them in hot jars, poured the brine over, then boiled the sealed jars for 15-20 minutes.  I can't find a recipe that says you don't have to cook beets.  Does any one have such a recipe?  Our brine contained cinnamon sticks and cloves.  I imagine we could just add these ingredients to any regular vinegar/sugar/water brine though.  Mostly just wondering about using raw beats vs uncooked beets.  Thanks...Jim
    • Looks good, for sure. 
    • No, but this is what I would get if I was there. 
    • Really? I told them I will Only Agree to one year if the discounts are for one year and no problem. About two years ago I did call Direct TV and they wouldn't throw a deal. So I canceled my service then left for the weekend. I came home called them and said dish didn't show up to put it in and asked if they wanted me back has a new customer or if I just needed to let dish install it. They flipped it back on and gave me the deal. You will never get the "deal" with the first person you talk to. You have to talk to at least 2 people and the second one always gives in. I could really care less which one I have, but learning the channel number lineup sucks big time. I had dish about 6yrs ago and what made me go to direct tv is I had my dish get out of line on the roof of my two story house. They were gonna charge me $50-$100 for a tech to come set it right so I'd get a signal. I left and went to direct....The games they play are stupid.
