      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 .

Wondering if someone can tell me what these berries are growing around the yard. The red ones look like wild raspberries to me but want to be sure before munching on them. 

The baby birds I just posted for fun, ran across them while wondering around the yard. Found a dead black bird not to far away so might get rough for these guys.

Oh del you old burnt out you! ;):lol:

I would concur with Dr. Reb's analysis and add that as kids we were always told that these berries were poisonous. Probably a good thing we were told that or we surely would have tried to eat them.  Apparently they are mildly toxic to humans but not to birds. Also a little known fact that they are called "twin-berry" by some for obvious reasons. Possibly by the ancient Mesopotamian's. :)

I also concur with yer statement, Dr. Dotch. I had always heard they were poisonous too, and that birds ate them with relish, (not as in "relish" on a hot dog, smurfy) so that they could fly over and poop purple on yer silver or light colored car. Considering yer statement about the ancient Mesopotamian's, Dotch, Let's break down that word: we all know meso means "middle" or "intermediate", "pot" is self-explanatory and "amain's" would refer to a group or faction thereof. In other words, if we apply this to Del, we come to a description literally meaning "middle-aged pot-using groupie". Consider that while I  toss a platter on of the Amboy Dukes.  

Dig Mr. Nugent there on the right, playing some licks on that Gibson Byrdland.... and please pass those berries.   hippie4-smiley.gif

Have you got those mixed up with buckthorn which wasn't around when I was young?  We used to throw those red berries at the girls when I was young... Eating them never entered my mind.
