      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 .

Doggy Doo Disposal

Recommended Posts

We're looking for some better ideas for getting rid of our dog's waste. Currently, we've just been scooping it into our big garbage can, but the smell is unbearble. Bagging each dump seems a bit wasteful when we're talking about 4-5 dumps a day.

I'm sure there are some great ideas out there. Let's here them!

That's an easy one. Teach your dog to go in the neighbors yard. Just kidding!!! I just got a new puppy three months ago with the promise from my children picking up the mess each day. Let's just say that worked for a week. I use a five gallon bucket with a plastic liner in it and every garbage day it is tossed. Keep the cover on it!!! Just a few of the wonderful responcibilities of a pet owner.

Bought one of the small metal cans with lid from FF. Use the black bags and change it every week when garbage comes. Not to bad. When it gets real hot out, it can be a little ripe the last day or two, but as long as the lid it on you don't notice it.

I did the bag in a bucket thing for one week and got tired of the smell too. Now I toss it in the woods behind our yard and told the kids to keep out of that area.

How often are you picking up the feces? If you're going ever 2 or 3 days, I'd just bag it, tie up the opening and toss it in the trash.

I put in a Doggie Dooley and it works great. It doesn't work in the winter but then your dog waste freezes and you don't have the smell anyway. In the winter I will just scoop and bag it and in the trash. In the summer, it goes in the Doggie Dooley. Here is a link:

[Note from Admin: Please read forum rules before posting again, Thanks]

This is a picture of it. It goes in the ground and it takes a little work but I've used mine all summer and have no complaints. Dog [PoorWordUsage] is always a pain and this seems to handle the problem during the warm summer months.

feed your dog really good food and you will lower the [PoorWordUsage] rate. My lab is down to twice a day

I do feed really good food. I'd hate to imagine how much he'd [PoorWordUsage] if not. 8+ cups of food a day has to go somewhere, though.

    • Got skunked. Gave up after the second day and went grouse hunting instead. Had better luck doing that
    • Real nice night Monday night.  International Space Station was doing a fly-by.  When it topped the horizon, it was over southeast Alberta and when it crawled into the earth's shadow it was over the east edge of Wisconsin in just a little over 4 minutes.  Not all of these have the same white balance setting.  I messed with it to see what I liked better.  The tree was light painted with a small LED flashlight.  Opinions and critiques are welcome.
    • I have a 3.2 L Cooks Essentials digital that I bought first. Not big enough. So I bought a 5.2L manual Bella. You definetly want to get a bigger one. As for manual or not.....less to go wrong with a manual. My Bella holds more food than the smaller one and works great. I use the Cook's Essentials only when I have 2 things to make. Plus the manual costs less. The Bella sells for about  $75. Digitals will sell for over $100. Four other members of my family now also have  them.
    • I guess I started this thread but never gave model name lol. I have the cozyna model air fryer its been great unit and so far non stick surface has been holding up well in dishwasher after every use. Super easy clean up.
    • We really didn't shop around much.... Just bought one off of amazon with good reviews  
    • .... I knew that was coming the second I said "vacuum seal"
    • You could have just boiled them in the bag like Del does.....  
    • Anyone recommend a brand or model?
    • Ended up making some non-breaded steak cubes (aka "Chislic" here in SoDak) that turned out friggin awesome. I took a sirloin tip roast, trimmed it up, and cut it into 1" cubes. I then vacuum sealed them for 6 hrs in a little olive oil, worchester, garlic, and coarse black pepper. I sprinkled on a little lawry's before putting them in. I did two batches... one batch "medium well" for the wife and kids, and one batch medium rare for me. Medium well took 10 min, Medium rare was 6. Turned out awesome! Even the Medium well was still tender and juicy.
