      How to create an @mention - Click Here   07/16/2015

      You can use the @mention aspect whenever you want someone to be notified about a post or let them know you are talking about them. Type the @ symbol type in a couple "lowercase" letters pause then once the names pop-up either select or keep typing in letters to narrow down the list until you get the @mention name you are looking for. You can play a game so members can see how it works. If you want to practice or If your name has been @mentioned below you should see it in your notifications (upper right) and you then have to @mention one or two members who haven't been mentioned inthe comments section below. Let's see how long we can keep this going. Anyone who duplicates a name that has already been @mentioned loses. This is the first group to be @mentioned to get the ball rolling: @Borch @Scott K @Corey Bechtold @Matt Johnson @mrklean @eyeguy 54 @Finns @IceHawk @MarkB @Cliff Wagenbach @Wayne Ek

Awesome pics Gramps. I love the macro work and daisy pictures the most, but they are all priceless.

Can't wait to get my boy out for stuff like that. He already likes to hold the camera and looks through the viewfinder. Only a matter of time.

Ken,

Awesome post the Pixy Dust {dandelion} one does it for me. Grandma will be plucking dandelines next year but it is worth the picture and the innosence of childhood.

PS had a great trip to Dissapointment but got stuck on the campsite next to the North portage. That is a long paddle to the fishing grounds. I put the raingear on and took it off 50 times in 5 days. We had great smallmouth fishing but didn't find the walleyes till the last day. Thanks for the help.

Thanks all. Sam had a great weekend at Grandma's and Grandpa's, including catching his first fish on his Diego rod and reel:

He actually outfished mom and dad by getting one up to the boat and this one into the boat!

Moose - glad you had a good trip. That's pretty country up there!

Cool shot, Ken. Love the grin and those bare feet! gringrin

By the way, I could have used that toy camera you got the boy. I had a kid at a wedding reception/dance last night, about a 3-year-old, who kept wanting to "help" me, and dogged my steps so closely for about a 20-minute period that every time I turned around or backed up to get a better angle I was bumping into the poor little fella.

Hmmm, bring along a toy camera for the kiddie in the way. Should we call that Pro Tip #3? gringringrin

Kids are great! They seem a lot more relaxed behind the camera than most adults and do a lot of fun things to capture.

Wow! Those are great.

I recently found out I will become a Grandpa around New Years. I hope my photo skills develop such that I can take some shots like that some day. Congratulations on a memorable day.

    • We saw some good bucks this weekend but couldn't quite seal the deal on any of them...my son smoked his second one with the ML this afternoon after talking me in to going out when we should have been packing to leave for home...(: found a big deadhead this morning too...deer were super spooky but saw plenty...time to pack all the hunting gear away and focus on ice!! 
    • I know, you hear about them everyday in the News burning and terrorizing the good atheist folks of Belle Plaine MN.
    • Are the houses built on an order basis only?   How long did your build take from order to delivery?
    • The one I installed in my previous house was the same way. Like Tom said, be sure to watch the humidity levels. When they get too high you can start to get mold growth. I always watched the windows. When they'd start to get a lot of condensation on them I'd turn it down.   Be sure to check the filter at least once a year. I lived in town and still had to replace the filter every year because of buildup on the filter. When it would get clogged the water would pretty much run straight down to the drain in the bottom. 
    • Looks different to me, or probably just the light and shade difference.
    • I still planned to shoot my ML some, even not going hunting.  Pretty much out of primers and getting low on white hots so I swung into the Baxter FF on my way to Winnie for the weekend. They were completely out of primers and had just gotten restocked that day with propellants.  The counter guy said they went through a ton of ML supplies this year, owing the surge to scopes being allowed.  I bought some Buckhorn to try out and will have to get primers later. Anyone with a last day story to tell?
    • i think those jackknife couches are 72 inches but not positive, will check on that.  The back dinette bed would be almost 8 feet wide. Here are some more pics of the furnace, batteries, and hydraulic system under the couch.  Also the Biffy and closet in the front, the stereo system with Bluetooth, some USB charging ports next to it, cabinet for the satellite receiver with all connections tucked inside.  Pic of the outside 30 amp generator plug in and propane tanks.  Has lights over the tanks and entry door.  You can connect whatever you want to the tv, so yes a water camera would work on that.  Hoping to get on the ice next weekend!!  Good luck to all...
    • Meh, I can protect myself just fine with or without a $1000 rifle. My $100 Hi-Point .45 will make you just as dead as that AR. It's more than likely one of those crazy arse Christians that I need to protect myself from.
    • Yea, well down in Belle Plaine you got all those gun toting Christians to protect your ars!
