      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 .

Hummers that picky?

Recommended Posts

OK. we have have had a Hummingbird feeder in the front and back of the house for years. Filled it up this spring and they came like gangbusters to clean up on them. Then we were shopping a couple weeks ago and picked up some sugar. Instead of the G&H we got the generic sugar, after all, sugar is sugar right? Well the hummers come to them now take one swig and they are on their way. What the heck... isn't generic sugar good enuff for the lile buggers? Any one else ever run into this issue? Thanks././Jimbo

Nope, never run into it, and we've alternated between any ole kind of sugar that's cheapest on the day we're in the store.

Could be coincidence. Sometimes hummers don't hang around and guzzle their fill, but dip in a time or two and buzz off. There were a couple times I wondered if it was the mix or something, but the next day or the next week I'd see them gobbling the same stuff they were only sipping the day before.

Well it has been over two weeks and they never take more than one swig and then fly off. That is not really been the norm around here. Will have to keep an eye on them... we did re-mix but still the same results. Have a good one././Jibmo

Also the flowers have been blooming. So many of the nectar carrying flowers are out strong now.

The males don't care for the young at all. That's why, once the hummers are nesting, you generally only see the males coming to the nectar feeders. The females are out getting insects to feed the young. Once the young can fly, usually in August, the nectar feeder again becomes a true circus of activity.

WOW... they take till August to be able to fly? That is a long time! Thought that maybe with the 2 nice days we had we might see some but nope... have not seen one in some time. Will keep an eye out for them... they gotta come out of the wood work sooner or later. Take care and N Joy the Hunt././Jimbo

    • I guess I started this thread but never gave model name lol. I have the cozyna model air fryer its been great unit and so far non stick surface has been holding up well in dishwasher after every use. Super easy clean up.
    • We really didn't shop around much.... Just bought one off of amazon with good reviews  
    • .... I knew that was coming the second I said "vacuum seal"
    • You could have just boiled them in the bag like Del does.....  
    • Anyone recommend a brand or model?
    • Ended up making some non-breaded steak cubes (aka "Chislic" here in SoDak) that turned out friggin awesome. I took a sirloin tip roast, trimmed it up, and cut it into 1" cubes. I then vacuum sealed them for 6 hrs in a little olive oil, worchester, garlic, and coarse black pepper. I sprinkled on a little lawry's before putting them in. I did two batches... one batch "medium well" for the wife and kids, and one batch medium rare for me. Medium well took 10 min, Medium rare was 6. Turned out awesome! Even the Medium well was still tender and juicy.
    • So what you're saying is if we ever hear him say "I'm going out to the garage to give my blade a love rub" we shouldn't be too worried?
    • I have had 2 of these for a year or so. They work great for fries, tator tots, onion rings, shrimp,chicken strips.and basically anything breaded when you buy it. And they don't need any oil. Only OK if you bread them yourself. For those I spray Pam on them. The only thing is breaded fish fillets are only so so. I still prefer deep frying them. Fish is the only thing I still deep fry. I indulge my self there. Just not as good as deep frying. Pretty much everything else I air fry.
    • You missed the part about "All my blades are hand rubbed with love"
