      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 .

Hail Call to LABS4ME

Recommended Posts

Labs,

I think I am going to need a suggestion on where to bring my dog for possible surgery.

We took our Dog to an Emergency Vet in Coon Rapids and my wife is terribly upset at their attitude. She says it seemed they were only interested in the money. Anyway, I know you know alot of good people/places out there.... any suggestions???

NorthEast Metro if possible.

Thx,

Mike

Best of luck. Just some words of encouragement. Went through a similar event with our first dog. Lump in throat, trouble breathing/swallowing. Biopsy inconclusive but leaning towards cancer. Opened her up for surgery and was obviously a bad infection. Hope you encounter similar results. Extremely humorous ending to my story that I will add when I have more time and you hopefully also report a happy ending.

Pretty sure I know where Labs is going to send you. Don't let the longer drive alter your decision to get the best care.

Sorry Ken,

I was going to call you last night but my brother needed to talk.

The vet gave us some Pain killers, Tranquilizers and Steriods.

They told the wife to give her pain killers for the biopsy pain and Tranquilizers to keep her calm. We only gave her 1 pain killer. She is extremely calm for a springer, she's my second one.

We have been giving her the Steriods and she is doing much better. Makes me wonder if it just isn't an infection.

Anyway I told the wife to call and bug them about the results of the biopsy. I haven't heard yet.

Ken, Is their a time frame in which you prefer to take calls?

Thx,

Mike

Labs,

Thanks for the recommendations. I will be calling one of them shortly.

Update:

The Vet called and they said that the biopsy test didn't show signs of cancer, but I got the feeling that they may not have biopsied the correct area, per the Vets comments. They want me to bring her back in the another visit.

I will be taking her somewhere else to get a second opinion.

Thanks for the support, Maxx is doing fine. Breathing normal and back to her spunky self, chasing the watering hose.

Mike

    • I did that with some stale Christmas almonds, Blue jays found them and took all off them and deposited in the crotches of nearby tree branches. The nuts weren't out long, then they were gone.
    •   You could use your breaker bar now and re-torque while you are at home. 
    • We launched at Normana  and started on the NSST ,,, That wasnt groomed yet so turned around and hit the RR trail to Fish lake ,,, Met the groomer heading east ,,, Gave him some time to do more grooming and had nice smooth ribbon like trail for the trip back    NSST was groomed when we got back to the trailer 
    • I think that was fairly common at one time.   I recall havinga car or two with left hand threads on one side and right hand on the other.    I think the theory was something to do with the nuts not working themselves loose due to the wheel rotation (which seemed dubious to me when I heard it).   Might have been a chrysler thing.    
    • A Tucan? If you break them up I don't see a seed eater passing them by.    Maybe bait for Late Season Squirrel.  
    •   Well you must be talking about my old-New Cat?   Tore it down and found a finger tight head bolt and loose carb boot bolt!  Someone at the Cat plant went to lunch a little early!! The cylinder is in the shop right now so it may be back on the lake fishing anyway yet this year?  High speed trails. May be not?
    •  Following Monday's snow we hit the Reservoir Trail out of Twig Wed afternoon.  Freshly groomed and what a sweet ride it was but too short  More snow in the forecast.   Ride When and What You Can. Going out Fri night.
    • "A little too fast for a sled not completely broke in yet any way"  For what the new POO Axys or the 2003 Cat? Very low miles on an old sled is good but sitting idle for years is no good. Dirty carbs and or rust on the bearings was the Cats downfall.
    •  Most riders are going to cross a driveway in the ROW as if it were any other crossing.  Start putting up barricades or berms to impede crossing the the ROW and heads will butt.  Point is you may have paved the driveway onto the ROW and feel some ownership but the law says you don't control it.   I see it all the time where a landowner blocks of the ROW.   The local club might contact you or Law Enforcement will to inform you to remove the barrier.  
    • I have two huge bags of shelled pecans and walnuts from Xmas that won't be used anytime soon and was wondering if I can feed these to birds and what species of birds would eat them
