      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 .

My interesting vacation

Recommended Posts

Where did you go DeeDee? I read in the photo forum that you and your 6 y.o. were jet skiing?? grin FUN!

I had a very interesting vacation. 1) I learned not to drink BEFOR going into the casino, 2) I learned to ALWAYS hold on to the jetski when a 6 yr old is driving, and 3) I learned what NOT to do when puttin the boat in the river! Not even going to talk about #1 sick #2 My husband and youngest son (Angelo) sprayed us with the jet ski just as Nicolas hit a wave went airborn gunned it and threw me off the back of the ski blush And #3 well, lets just say I'll pay more attention next time. cry

Lisa - It did hurt quite a bit, but once the rain stopped we had a great time.

Hammer - you and everyone else will probably think I'm a dumba-- for doing but ever get in a big hurry and not really think about what your doing? Well thats what happens when you losen the strap from inside the boat, the boat falls, crank slips out of hand and WHACKS arm. blush

I think everyone's been there DeeDee. I know I've had a bruse or two from that. Thing it, is usually only happens once cause it's a painful lesson to learn.

Mine involved the snowmobile trailer and then slipping off the back of it when it tipped-ouchies on the shins and then I bonked my head on a the ground too. Musta looked really graceful! frown Even Arctic Armor couldn't save the day on that one. wink

Don't feel dumb. Most people just won't share their stories like us DeeDee! laugh

I can imagine that was followed by a few words that would trigger the word filter on the forum here blush Ouch that hadda hurt shocked

And don't feel stupid...the only ones of us that hasn't done something of that nature are the ones who sit home all the time watching the boober tube. All it takes is for the brain to slip into neutral for a second or two and the what the h***, son of a b%%%%% or worse usually follows grin

That avatar is enough to trigger an epileptic fit. Just kidding, does this mean it is time for me to ditch mine for a new one? I haven't caught any bragging fish to put up yet. Maybe this weekend.

About a month ago, my father-in-law was cutting some boards with a circular saw. He had one small piece left to cut...and held it in on hand and cut with the other (not smart...and he knew it wasn't). Well, the saw grabbed and pulled his fingers into the saw...cutting two ends of his fingers off. They are growing back...but what a way to learn.

Me, well...let's see. Cutting wood and in a hurry...and I poured bar oil into the gas tank and added gas to the oil. Caught myself when putting the caps on.

Also this last month, grabbed a bad electrical cord and got shocked. Thought...did that really happen?...and grabbed it again. Yep, bad cord.

Can't think of anything else right now...at least not that happened lately.

Oh jeez, Hammer Handle, that's just crazy about the cords!! Live and learn right?

I tried cracking the seal on a juice bottle with a paring knife and ended up in surgery repairing a nerve and getting sewn back up! The scar looks like a thick, extra lifeline on my palm....it was soooo gross and stupid! I was casted for 12 weeks since palms don't heal up very fast!

    • Anyone here make their own wine?    I have been doing a little research on the process and plan to give it a shot this year. One of our favorite wines is Redass Rhubarb from Hill City SD and we like other fruit wines. My wife likes anything fruity and sweet. It may take me a while to dial in a few internet recipes to something we like but that's part of the fun.   I think I would try making some now but I think I would have to turn up our thermostat to get through the fermentation. It appears that a temp of 70-75 is necessary and our house is usually 62-68 this time of the year.
    •   I think that's exactly what I should have done. It would have probably reached me sooner. 
    • I'm thinking of selling my IceGator and going with the Strikemaster. Looking at the Strikemaster, it is not as bulky and heavy. The IceGator does cut ice like butter, especially with a Strikemaster 224 bit!
    •   The default temp is 360 for the NuWave 36001 Brio I mentioned above, but it can be programmed as high as 390. I absolutely agree that it does make a difference for certain things to get those extra 30-40 degrees.
    • yes i did i messaged him directly outside of the post
    • Looks like the Hawks might be without Crawford the rest of the season.   http://nhl.nbcsports.com/2018/01/16/report-blackhawks-concerned-crawford-could-miss-remainder-of-season/
    • We use a line voltage thermostat, with it set in the "cool" position.  Once it hits the set temp the thermostat kicks the fan on, until it gets below the set point.  Works pretty well.  
    • Strange I received our notification for WI yesterday but the page does not show any update. Either way WI permits are out. Already planning and getting blinds ready for this spring    
    • I have not used one, but they have attracted my attention. I have a wheelhouse but think this would be a better early ice option. Surprised at how pricey they are, but aluminum must be spendy! I think your ability to pull with the snowmobile will vary with snow depth, slushy conditions etc..... Studs will probably be helpful?  If you go that route, report back how it works!
    • I finally used it I was just testing it out getting the feel of things so didn't follow a recipe just cut up some Yukon gold potatoes zucchini onion and threw in a bunch of chicken breast. 1 can of cream of chicken and 2 cups of beer. Actual cook time after pressurized 12 mins. Some of the most tender chicken I have ever had.   Next day I made some jasmine rice and cubed some chicken breast and coated with sesame chicken sauce. Didn't think the sauce would steam good on its own so I put half cup of water as well. Then drained liquid when itt was done cooking and tossed them in more sauce before eating.   All in all I like it so far pretty easy stuff.
