      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 .

My dad would say if it smells OK it's probably fine, but personally I don't mess around with expired meat. If she didn't know it was expired, and still has the receipt, you should be able to take it back.

Be sure to report back so we know you're still alive!

She bought it 3 weeks ago and its been in the fridge since then?  

I'd also toss it.  Its not worth the risk and its also not worth wasting the time and effort involved in smoking it if it ends up being bad.

If not wasting the money spent on it is important to you then unwrap it.  let it come towards room temp.   Get down next to it and sniff.   Smell like not much?     So far so good. 

Look it over.  See anything a funny color or growing?   No?  So far so good.  

Rinse it off real well. 

Slice off a small piece.  Fry it done.  Taste it.  Taste like pork?  No funky flavors?    I think you are good to go.  

After all they wet or dry age beef for a long time.   Scandanavians eat fermented shark.  British used to hang pheasants by the neck until they fell off the hanger before eating them.  

Probably ought to think about how sensitive you and the family are, digestive system wise as well.

And just how many of those people are still around today, hmmmm?? Besides, those limeys and scandahoovians eat some pretty weird junk anyway. :sick:   :P

    • I took a short ride the other day but still a little chilly out in the breeze. Streets were pretty good as they were out sweeping them before the last snow. Saw a lot of bikes out the last couple of days. Don't forget to put your new licence tag on as I almost did.
