      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 .

If you would like to read the article, go to the Marshall Independent HSOforum (put the normal dot com after the name of the paper), then go to "features". We are our county's Farm Family of the Year.

What a nice article. You sound like such a nice family. I dont even read our papers here they never have anything nice to say. I need to subscribe to your papers up there since one day I WILL move back there.

Carolyn, you have such a great family. I commend you for having a green farm! This is my favorite quote of the article from your husband,

Quote:
"We try to be at all the kids events. It's a balance, but I think it's important for our family to keep that as a priority."

Hi Fishin Chicks,

I read the article also in the Duluth paper several weeks ago.

I think it is fantastic that you and your sister both got your captains licenses! And even better that you started a business together chartering. Grand Marais is a fantastic area. And I hear you do get some nice really Kings up there as Thunder Bay plants alot of kings, you probably get a bunch of those that navigate down, maybe?

My huband has his Coast Guard 6 pack Charter Fishing license also, he encourages me to get mine, but I need a bit more time docking, etc. I have spent many, many hours driving the bigger boats on Lake Michigan and Lake Superior in rough weather, fog, etc. I am familiar with the electronics and radar and have learned alot of the "rules of the road" from the hubby. Maybe someday I will take the class.

Are you fishing up there all summer, or are you down in SW MN for the rest of the summer?

Heidi

Heidi-

The article you are referring to is not my family. We live in SW Minnesota year round. I signed up as "fishinchicks" long before I knew about those girls. I have two daughters that like to fish with me, that is how we came up with our name.

I have to say, though I have not responeded to a lot of posts lately, I have read about what you are doing up there. Sounds really cool. Your hubby encouraging you to get your CG license in similar to mine wanting me to get my CDL driver's license so I can haul grain in the semi. I, however, have resisted the idea. smile

Nice to have you on FM!

Carolyn

Hi Carolyn,

Thanks for the update. Sorry for the mix up.

Getting your Semi Truck drivers License would be great!

Thanks for the welcome.

    • A couple years ago I just got done plowing my driveway with the wheeler. Along comes an adult snowmobiler with his kid following behind. Guy crosses driveway and stops on top of opposite bank. Then he guns his machine sending all the snow back in the driveway. This is not a trail, just random ditch riders. Well I was outside and saw him do it. I jumped in my truck and cut him off at a road crossing 2 blocks away. I jumped out and royally chewed his azz and told him what a bad example he was setting for the kid. I think he got the message. For awhile after that I sprayed water on the banks to freeze them. No respect, they wouldn't want you doing that to their driveway. 
    • @Jim Almquist   How big was the larger Power Air Fryer and do you recall what those “easy monthly payment” were?  I’m sure the one we saw was the small one and was $100 on the shelf.
    • I bought the NuWave 6 qt brio a week ago. So far have used it to make onion rings and asparagus. It worked flawlessly for both. Frozen onion rings took 15 minutes at 400 degrees. The asparagus took 10 minutes at 375 degrees. I preheated the unit each time.  It really seemed to seal the flavor in with the asparagus. Could not believe how good it was for store bought.
    • I had to look up this thread before making our purchase.  I saw the NuWave. Power Air Fryer and a Farberware.  We went with the Farberware cuz it was the cheapest for experimenting.     Got it on 400 for 25 minutes now to burn off the manufacturing residues.  Looking forward to getting some chicken wings rubbed down and tossed in that baby!
    • As I write this I am on a ND lake with my kdrill and 750 ft in torque hammer drill.  I have 5 amp/hr batteries and going through 28” of ice I am getting 20 or so holes per battery. 
    • I’m just cranky about my asphalt driveway. I’m on a state highway. Recently a couple Snowmobilers put up directional and yield signs on each side of the driveway entrance near the culverts. The traffic has substantially increased this year. I was so happy to have had the asphalt put down because I use a cane now and could keep it free of ice allowing me to get my own mail in the winter.....not this year. I’m afraid to have it plowed and cleaned. Not only do the snowmobiles pull  the snow back onto the driveway making a new mess everyday, but I’m worried about the asphalt being damaged. They don’t mind digging up the grass so what’s to stop them from driving on it bare? To add insult, a groomer came by this week and groomed even the driveway. I read that guys don’t even drive on their own driveways but mines ok. I can look away from the jumping of my driveway as if you crash, it’s on you...you are disturbing my sleep going the excessive speed to jump it though. can someone help me out? I really don’t want an altercation. I feel if I fell on the ice they’d drive around me or just jump over me. Thanks in advance.
    • The big hawks I have been seeing around this winter, I think are redtails that are hunting metro pidgeons.  I have not personally see the snowy owls myself. 
    •   For sure.  The biggest reason I ever went electric was for cutting holes in the house.  Dollar for dollar I don’t know if you can beat gas for cutting shear numbers of holes.   The improvements made in the past couple years with the cordless drill set ups has been amazing though.  If I had to buy electric again I’d give a good hard look in that direction. 
    • Yeah that’s great but the piggy bank wouldn’t appreciate that I like the ion I’ve used before them before there nice but can’t justify spending  $600 on an electric when I could just by a SM lazer pro and drill as many holes I want. I like electric but amount of holes on a charge is tough to come by without spending a $1000.
