      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 .

This is the time of year for great soups. :)

When I do retire in many years from now. Here is what I am going to do all day during the winters.

Smoke all kinds of meat!

Make all kinds of artisan breads!

Make some massive hearty soups!

And get fatter! :P

Canned beans? Hmmmmmm......might be real mushy, as they're already "cooked". Let us know.....

Had the soup last night and it was really good. The beans weren't too bad - I wouldn't say any mushier than they probably where right out of the can. Pretty similar to the texture of Bush's Baked Beans, so mushy, but I was worried they might be the consistency of refried beans after cooking on low call day in the crockpot.

Going to try adding a little liquid smoke next time. That sounds like an interesting twist.

Maybe try simmering it over a charcoal bed with some chunks of apple or cherry for a 'real" smoke taste?

You do realize that was never the point, right? The problem was not so much that the threads get off topic but that the great recipes you guys were posting weren't being indexed and no one could ever get back to them and put them to use. This post is great and any time I ever want to make bean soup I can just do a search and find it easily. It gets harder when a bean soup recipe gets posted in a good morning thread or something like that.

Just sayin".

Doesn't stay on the grate real well that way. 

You must be as bright as the woman we sold a ham to one time years ago at the grocery store I worked at. She asked the owner of the store who also worked behind the meat counter how to prepare the ham. He told her to put a can of 7up in the bottom of the pan and put in the ham and roast it a 350 degrees for whatever length of time. She looked at him puzzled and said "how do you balance the ham up on top of the can of 7up?" We laughed about that one for years....

You wait 'til Delphonic whips you ragged and shows ya his soused-up IQ. But, we MUST remain on the bean soup topic. Mikey is trying to copy it down. I know he can cook it right. Must remain on topic.....

And to find them use Google, it can search the site better than the site can.

    • Had over 2 ' here in the last week. Blower & plow on wheeler, so not much shoveling. Good thing!
    •   Mmmmmm.......I haven't had duck in a coon's age.
    •   Any chance you could post some pictures so we could see how it is set up?     I don't understand. Are you saying that a snowmobiler riding the ditch should go up onto a highway every time they encounter a driveway? Please keep in mind, If you live on a state or county road it is actually illegal for the snowmobile to operate on the inside slope, shoulder or roadway.     You do if you want any chance of solving your problem.
    • Has anyone been to this resort? I am looking for a new place to go for a trip in June. I have heard pretty good things about the fishing and the lodge but have only spoke to one person with first hand knowledge. Any info would be greatly appreciated! Thanks,   Bryan
    • I’ve shoveled the end of the driveway four times today. I left the shovel down there for them. No one has used it after crossing. Thankfully it’s melting time next week.  Standing down there and one of them pulls up onto the mound, stops, rips off and throws all the snow back. Our driveway is uphill. Without that space, the car doesn’t get up. Plus, just another pile for the homeowner.   Before this weekends snow, it had melted down to the grass. Yep. Grass dragging ditch riders we had. Luckily there’s enough ice on the driveway on most spots. Everyone is right about it being a right of way...common courtesy to pull up onto the highway seems to have been lost. This gives snowmobiles a bad name.  I shouldn’t need to call the ‘club.’ They can see my driveway when they fly over it....get the problem?  Not everyone is ripping through like this. Some obviously have respect and work over the snow easy.
    • Looking at throwing a front hitch on my truck and picking up a plow, mostly for my house and a couple others within a few miles of me.  Would also like to bring it to the Cabin a few times a year but they all say max travel speed is 45 mph.  Is this just due to over heating or are there other issues it could cause?  Curious if I could just throw it on the rear hitch for highway driving.  That would solve the overheating issue. I have a trailer if needed but would rather not have to drag that around if I don’t have to.
    • Cub, at least the one in Inver Grove Heights has been having whole frozen ducks for 99 cents/pound. I went back and got a couple more yesterday.
    •   Drove home from the Park and Go last night  at 11:30. (after digging out) *grumble grumble*
    • 8" inches last night. We'll save yea some!
