      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 .

New addition to the family

Recommended Posts

Just got a spanking new Chocolate lad, 7 weeks. Wifey was not too pleased because our Daughter is getting married the Sat. after Labor day. With all the reliticks and outlaws comming to town she did not want to have the house smelling like puppy ( you know potty stuff) Well when I bought it it was under the conditions that if it was either puppy or divorce that I could return it by this Wed. Sat was a little rocky to say the least, Sunday she was not speaking too much, told me to call the guy back to return it Monday, Sunday night she started to talk rather then yell at him/me Monday morning I went to work she put him in his new kennel b4 she left for work. 8:00 she e-mails me and said the guy called and I could bring him back between 5-6, 11:00 am she e-mailed me and said call him back we can keep him if thats OK with me (I think the pup had more power on this one then I did. Well when I left for work today @ 3:30 she was sitting on the steps drinking her coffee petting the pup. I guess women really do change their minds and that just fine with me.

Sweet! Mission accomplished!! Glad to hear you get to keep the little guy. She may have second thoughts in a couple months, you know......when the chewing and biting starts. Just make sure all her shoes are put away. My girlfriend "lost" several pairs of shoes to my pup. And you know how those girls like their shoes! grin Good luck with the new addition.

Last dog we had the girls wanted to train it, ( thought I might be too ruff) Well he only ate 1 of my shoes, and at least 6 pairs each of #1 , #2 daughter and moms shoes. They always wondered why he never liked mine lol. Beagle friggin chewing machine. ate a hole in my wall and buried a bone, chewed up the bottom of fridge. every outside corner of trim boards, 1 garden hose,(pssst. he never ate another one) my dieing Dads oxygen hose. That was funny he called my wife and said his hose is a little short and if I could stop and get another, When I got home his 60' of hose was nowabout 1 foot, he had his face up to the tank all day.

My parents have a dog that had an obsession with wires. He chewed the lights of my dad snowmobile trailer 3 times. Realizing how bad this could be they tried to keep wires hidden from lamps, televisions etc. Well one day he got to the cord on a lamp. He never chewed on wires again (he survived).

That's priceless. I'm picturing this dog with a stunned look on his face and all of its hair standing straight out like a blow fish and a plume of smoke rising. Ahh, pictures are worth a thousand words. HA

Just the opposite happened to me: My husband did not want a dog!!

The last dog he had was a hunting dog he loved so much, and someone in his hometown shot it, right in the yard. So, he couldn't bring himself to get another dog.

Well, in January, I started talking about getting a Bichon Frise (as I am allergic to other breeds) and he said absolutely not.

On Feb. 29 I brought home a 2 year old rescue Bichon named Duke. Then, hubby said ok, but not in our bedroom, then it was not in our bed. Now it's - he can sleep with us, but has to be still.

Hubby loves this little guy. It's amazing what the dog can do to melt your heart.

Always easier to ask for forgiveness than it is to ask for permission. Returning a puppy, I know I would never be able to do that.

Heck - when people ask me to watch their dogs I have a hard time giving them back.

    • 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. 
    • Sometimes they’re so pretty you don’t wanna clean em.  I appreciate seeing the pics with clean, dry plumage.  They’re too quick in flight for me to get the full view! 
    • You might get 25-30 holes out of one charge on  40 V Ion in these ice conditions but I wouldn’t count on any more than that.  The Ion X might do better.
    • Not knocking any duck shooters, but have you ever noticed how much prettier birds are in flight than when they are piled up in the mud or on the deck of a boat of tossed in the back of a truck? When you get to be an old guy, with eighty seasons behind you, things like that occur to you. Still love to see them coming in fast to the decoys in early light!
    • i switched cuz the drill is so light and easy on my back and no pulling.  25 to 30 holes is no prob on a battery for my nills and the kdrill with the 9 amp probably much better.
