      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 .

Anybody still miss Hunter?

Recommended Posts

I do not miss him, looks like we have replaced his bat for sure and I dont think the opposing pitchers like him batting or on the basepaths. Now if he can pull out some key hits in the playoffs....

Exactly, he knows how the Twins operate, and what we offered him was plenty fair, and he already has more money then he could ever spend. Tori just got greedy.

Ditto Especially the #34. No one will ever replace him!

Ahhh, 2006. Wasn't that a good time? Well... right up until the playoffs that is. Still, that team made for a memorable August and September.

C'mon, anyone with a brain and/or is paying attention misses him.

He wasn't worth the LENGTH of the contract, but anyone who says they "don't miss" a guy who's averaged 30HR & 100RBI the past two years on an offensively struggling team is thinking with their jock strap. smile

He made the choice to leave not the Twins. Say what you will, but I will gladly pay Gomez His minimal salary and watch him mature the next 5 years. (Then hope his ego doesnt out grow the Twinks)

Yeah - Miss him, of course. We will be alright though and the twins aren't a team that will pay that type of contract.

Small Ball it!

Hunter for the most part with the Twins was not clutch. Lots of K's with runners in scoring pos,, lots of DP's and many HR with no one on base and the game allready over.

I shouldn't have to mention his playoffs.

Glad he's gone,,, save for the one or two snags over the fence.

That's the only thing I will miss is the incredible plays in the outfield the best was when he robbed Bonds at the all star game.

I'm definately not glad hes gone, but i do like the outfield right now. Its young and the potential is amazing.

The only thing that disapoints me about the 3 main guys is they never ever go after homerun balls that are close. Thats what made Gomez going after Princes bomb on Saturday all the better...he nearly snagged it, plus almost gunned him down at 3rd. Really makes you think how good Hunter really was roaming that wall!

    • Great Saturday to build some pork loin jerky. Got round 1 in the smoker round 2 still in the bucket. 
    • At the KMart at Nicollet and Lake in Minneapolis, there is a flock of pigeons that numbers several hundreds. Last Thursday going home from the Super Market I saw a large hawk make a strike at one, but missed.  This was a pretty dark bird overall and much bigger than a Coopers or a Sharpshin and heavy bodied not at all slender.  The attack was a straight line shot from a street light roost on a bird sitting on the shorter parking lot light post.  It seems to me that the attack was launched from a perch about a block away.  The target flew off and there was no chase, the attacker just returned to its previous roost.  I could not get over into the turn lane and go into the parking lot to get a closer look.  The main flock of pigeons didn't actually seem to notice, and there were even some stragglers. Is it possible that goshawks are starting to come into the city in the winter?  From a goshawk I would have expected a chase.  There are certainly plenty of pigeons, and the local falcons have gone south...  I know they are supposed to avoid human concentrations, but then so are loons and they are now common city residents and rest here when passing through in the spring.  We are getting all kinds of wild life in the Cities these days and not all of it goes around just on two legs.
    • I'm soon to be 40, still have never had a REAL super bowl party!   I will sit and hope.   Besides, at 7:11 last Sunday I pulled something in my neck/shoulder.  Might be a hole in my sister and brother in laws garage ceiling.
    • Lol. Dad and I were talking about this after the game last weekend after I had to tell him over and over that I have not been alive when the vikes have ever played a Super Bowl. You old timers can believe in what you want, but us Gen-X kids are saying SKOL!
    •   I'm sure if I had the time I could have spent 10 more minutes and made a nice one out of Oak or Cherry wood! Or found a blue Genz box on C/list and been done with it!
    •   You didn't try to call me, I would have given you some old oak boards I have laying around and let you use a few of my basic woodworking tools like a jig saw, an oscillating drum sander and a router with a round over bit.    I always tell my son, if something is worth doing, it's worth doing right.  
    • Ooof, that sucks.  Been there, done that.  Somebody’s still being affected by our day in the soup at temps like that.  Woulda given the world for a few studs in the snowmobile track!
    • Got a set of old new stock mora 10in blades to put it on, and drilled  5 holes in 18-20in of ice no problem with the Milwaukee 1200in/lb-clam plate-mora 10in. Didn't skip or jump. This is gonna be nice for the wheel house.    When I had the HT Polar Fire shaver/chipper blades the drill would cut out because they were to agressive.    So so if anyone comes across some mora 10in shaver blades or 10in shaver blades in general let me know.
