      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 .

Grubs

Recommended Posts

Had a beautifull lawn until last year. Use the 4 step program to take care during year, water regularly, and last year the grubs got me, nasty little devils. At first I thought I had burnt the grass, but after talking with a few friends, I find that it was grubs. I went to get Grub killer, but it says to apply in late june to mid july. Can I still apply now or do I wait, and do I apply every year to maintain or is there something else to rid myself of these lawn destroying pests and keep them gone. Thanks in advance for responses.

I cant remember the exact time to treat for grubs but i think you want to do this from mid to late July. That is when the grubs feeds the most.

A product called Merit is the best product for grub control. Mach 2 is another that works well.

Merit is good. However we use a product called Symitar. We kinda watch for alot of bird activity on the tees, fairways and greens. One way to find out if you do have grub prolems is to cut off the bottom of a coffee can and sink it in the ground about 4 inches, pour alittle dish washing soap, Dawn, etc, some water that'll really bring em to the surface in short order for identifiication. Regardless of what a guy uses...."FOLLOW THE LABEL"!!!! Herbicide application is NOT the idea of "if a little is good alot is better". I'm wondering if your problem might be cut worms.

There's another easy way to check if it's grubs. If the grass lifts up like carpet, it's grubs. However, I kinda doubt it is grubs. I look at about 4-5,000 lawns a year, and I might see a dozen lawns a year that actually have a grub problem. It could be cut worms, sod webworms, and a host of other problems. If I were you, I'd have a professional come and look at it. Most will do a free inspection for ya.

    • Got skunked. Gave up after the second day and went grouse hunting instead. Had better luck doing that
    • Real nice night Monday night.  International Space Station was doing a fly-by.  When it topped the horizon, it was over southeast Alberta and when it crawled into the earth's shadow it was over the east edge of Wisconsin in just a little over 4 minutes.  Not all of these have the same white balance setting.  I messed with it to see what I liked better.  The tree was light painted with a small LED flashlight.  Opinions and critiques are welcome.
    • I have a 3.2 L Cooks Essentials digital that I bought first. Not big enough. So I bought a 5.2L manual Bella. You definetly want to get a bigger one. As for manual or not.....less to go wrong with a manual. My Bella holds more food than the smaller one and works great. I use the Cook's Essentials only when I have 2 things to make. Plus the manual costs less. The Bella sells for about  $75. Digitals will sell for over $100. Four other members of my family now also have  them.
