      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 .

Do you hate ticks?

Here is one a friend sent to me.

A Helpful Tip on Removing Ticks

Spring is here and the ticks will soon be showing their heads.

Here is a good way to get them off you, your children, or your pets. Give it a try.

Please forward to anyone with children... or hunters or dogs, or anyone who

even steps outside in summer!!

A School Nurse has written the info below -- good enough to share -- And

it really works!!

I had a pediatrician tell me what she believes is the best way to remove a tick.

This is great, because it works in those places where it's some times difficult

to get to with tweezers: between toes, in the middle of a head full of dark hair,

etc.

Apply a glob of liquid soap to a cotton ball. Cover the tick with the soap-

soaked cotton ball and swab it for a few seconds (15-20), the tick will come

out on its own and be stuck to the cotton ball when you lift it away. This

technique has worked every time I've used it (and that was frequently), and

it's much less traumatic for the patient and easier for me.

Unless someone is allergic to soap, I can't see that this would be damaging

in any way. I even had my doctor's wife call me for advice because she had

one stuck to her back and she couldn't reach it with tweezers. She used this

method and immediately called me back to say, 'It worked!'

Please pass on. Everyone needs this helpful hint!

I wonder how she reached it with a cotton ball if she couldn't get to it with a tweezer. grin

Here is what I hate about ticks...

TICK WARNING!

I hate it when people forward bogus warnings,

and I have even done it

myself a couple times unintentionally...but this one

is real, and it's important. So please send this warning to everyone on your

e- mail list.

If someone comes to your front door saying they are checking

for ticks due to the warm weather and asks you to take your clothes off and

dance around with your arms up, DO NOT DO IT!! THIS IS A SCAM!! They

only want to see you naked.

I wish I'd gotten this yesterday. I feel so stupid. blush

Ya just to talk about ticks, didn't ya? Sitting here tonight and guess what? Yup, you betcha. A nasty little tick burrowed into my stomach. I can attest to the soap thing working! Now I just hope I don't get the usual reaction, swelling, then a painful ulcer sore. Me and ticks don't get along very well cry

Have you tried hittin the Benadryl as soon as you see them? My boys both have allergies to insect bites. As soon as I see they were bit. I give them some and it works fine.

Harvey I used the soap method, and it worked. Then I tried just gently pulling the next 2 with a tweezer. The 2 I pulled with a tweezer swelled up as usual, turned all red and developed into a sore. The one with the soap method didn't. Some people may think it is a wives tale but I will continue using the soap method!

Well, I remember one occasion where my brother got a tick in his head. He had dark brown hair that time. He was young kid and I was even younger but I remember sitting on the toliet laughing at my brother while my dad was "torching" the tick with a burnt hot match. Mom was holding my brother's hands so that he wouldnt push at Dad. No, the hair didnt get on fire, DARN IT! I was hoping it would go up in flames! LOL shame on me! heh What can I say, I was just a lil sister! :-D

    •   Is this some of your new Marketing idea's for the site Dave?
    • Snuck out today had one walk by 40 yards no shot ones gobbling at me across swamp making hos way now
    • If the refs call the game tight like they did in game 3, i think we come away with the W.  If they kind of turn a blind eye like they did in Game 4, the series is over.
    • Koivu has been pretty decent and our leading out team with 4 points but ya we just never find that next level. Our patchwork D hasn't been the issue, Stall hasn't produced like we needed him to and Nino, Coyle & Zucker have zero points between them. We needed our "depth" to score and they haven't. Coyle I think has been the best of him but he just isn't a goal scorer, has let numerous golden opportunities slip away. Hopefully the wild surprise tonight, otherwise its on Dubs to pitch a shutout and magically assists on the game winning goal. 
    • Saw that Morrisey is suspended for tonight.  Really too bad they missed the call during the game.  Should've been a 5 min major and a game misconduct.  Really would've changed the entire game IMO.  There are lots of times I wish Boogy was still around.   Staal needs to be checked for a concussion and Koivu needs to be checked into a retirement home.     Seems like we can pull up last years playoff and offseason threads and just ride that until October.  Same story, can't compete with a couple heavy blue liners and can't score.  
    •  KooWell team i got a nlce tom this morning, longest spur is 1 1/16 and beard is over 10.5 " and i know he' s well over 20 #'s . Off to work and ill get pictures up later on. Heres one for now.
    • Went for a short hunt yesterday morning. Mostly a scouting mission to hear what is around. Just before 6:00 am had 4-5  different gobblers going off about 200 yards away on neighbors land. Sometimes those birds come my direction, They did not. They made very few gobbles on the ground. I sat until 9 then packed it up, hearing nothing after 7:00. I did see 8 deer so that was cool.. Hoping to get my son out Sunday afternoon/evening......
