      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 .

ya know, I love the Twins. I really do. I listen to almost every game on radio. But their resistance to do anything to really help the club is really frustrating and tries my patience. I was thinking about attending a game here shortly, but if they fail to make any moves, I may just stay home.

you might as well save your money and stay home.

Just like all the other years the Twins will sit on their hands and do nothing and yes it does get frustrating that they do that every year.

I agree, You can't just make a trade to make a trade. You don't always hear what the other team was asking for. The Twins usually make the moves that help not hurt a team. Granted they can botch it up also, but sometimes losing good prospects to "Rent" a player can backfire in a heartbeat.

Getting a big time player can backfire. Remember the Hersel Walker trade? Everyone says the Vikes have never won a SuperBowl, but actually, they have won 2. Problem is, they won them for Dallas !

sometimes the best moves are the ones you don't make

I agree for the most part and hardly ever 2nd guess our overall method which IMO is the best in baseball period but I do understand the frustration from some of our fans.

I shall will remain neutral on this on!. grin

Go Twins!

You know they have been shopping around, it is such that the asking price in return for a good player is one of the guys that is currently producing for us. I believe they would have made a move already if there was a worthy deal to be done. I also believe it is time to get Liriano up here to test him again in the big leagues. I just do not trust Livan out there, every pitch he throws I cringe. Just because they haven't made a move will not keep me from going to the dome to watch them, which is where I will be tonight. I think I will make a generic homer hanky, since I don't have any of the real ones from years past. I almost forgot, how could you stay away from the dome with all those babes at the game? And being married is not an excuse because looking isn't against the rules! smile GO TWINS!

I have a really bad memory, but the only 2 moves I can remember that helped at this time of the year were obtaining Shannon Stewart and in '87 getting Don Baylor.

There have been many ones that did not work, ie Rick Reed. Bret Boone...and others.

Go Twins. Yes it is frustrating, but look at Seattle. Their season is over.

Glad to see this guy get out of the National League!

He strikes out a lot but clubs his fair share of homers too!

Go Cubs!

The Reds get pitcher Nick Masset and minor league infielder Danny Richar and the Reds will pay the remainder of Griffey's $12 million salary for this season.

The lack of activity on the Twins part can be frustrating, but they are not the quick change kind of team. Solid basics and building from within are why they are the model organization that the middle and low budget teams try to emulate. They look hard at the intangibles like how a player will affect team chemistry. How many deadline trades really push a team over the edge? Far fewer than the trades that actually happen and they tend to be temprary solutions. This is a team of our future. The fact that they are conending this year is gravy. Why screw up the next three or four years to take a chance on this year? Even if they pull off atrade that gets them the division, there are too many steps to get the big trophy. And if you go to the games just to look at the babes,...sit next to me so you can point them out in case I miss one.

Wonder if you'd get circled if your sign said, "Circle me Bert, my wife's letting me check out the babes. Oh...and, go Twins."

Well, he agreed to the trade and will joint the team on friday. If he would have showed up today, I may have had to drive down and buy a walk up ticket.

Is he a "rental player", or does he have some time left on his contract? It would be nice to say I saw him play before he retires. Looks like he is going to play right for the pale hose, should be fun to watch.

Look at the White Sox's bullpen tonight,, they could have used some more pitching rather than a KG that's likely to only last one or maybe two more years, and doesn't play CF like Anderson does. KG does bring some more pop at the plate,, but the TWins only face the Sox 3 more times,,, at the dome.

If the Twins bring an effective Liriano up and do something with Livian,, I think the Twins hold a slight advantage over the White Sox.

I don't think this move is going to help them at all. Griffey was a great centerfielder, but he's 38. I think he'd be a great dh, but they have a great one already with Thome. If you add him to the line-up, then Konnerko, Thome, or Swisher will have to sit.

I think they have a lot of other weaknesses that could have been addressed.

Cicada, that might actually work, except i dont get hitched until late september. I could use a variation of your suggestion at the next game laugh Anyone that wasn't at the game last night missed a great one. Of course we couldn't score until the 5th (just like I told my buddies before the game). Still, that game was one of the best I have ever been to. Got to heckle some Chicago fans too. Gardy turned that game around, he got everyone on their feet and myself and many others have a sore throat today grin Hopefully his wife wasnt to angry.

    • Starts Saturday....anybody going out?
    • If Stanley’s question is pointed at me:  I can’t tell ya anything yet.  I haven’t dug into mine any further.  It is the factory installed unit and would like to just replace what is broken but I find sometimes getting parts for DIY RV fixes can be obnoxiously tough.  I’ve done my electrical troubleshooting to the point of knowing it’s broken. I did learn something new about our 2016 wheelhouse the night before deer opener though:  There is a safety that won’t allow the heater to run while the trailer lights are hooked to the truck.   Took me a while to figure that out.  I read the manuals and didn’t see why it wouldn’t go into the ignition cycle so I called the dealer and got a little infuriated when the only comment I got was “Too tough to troubleshoot over the phone. Bring it in”.  Really? So I tore it out!  I found there was a rocker switch on the module and a wire that stated in order to perform a POT test, the coach needed to be disconnected.  So I disconnected the trailer lights, cycled the switch and the next try it worked just fine. Put everything back together and it hasn’t missed a beat.  I found my 15 amp trailer light fuse in the truck popped too. Seems like that was something that could’ve easily been mentioned over the phone.  
    • Fred has a "thing on the floor"...his feet, but no push buttons. Maybe Wilma has the push buttons....
    • Deer cart for sure. You can save some money and make your own game cart - https://catchthemeasy.com/build-dependable-game-cart/ Or, if you would rather just save time like myself then just buy one    
    • me thinks some one is having fun with push buttons!!
    • Feel free to explain how you keep food out of the danger zone while using sous vide when you are cooking at temperatures in the danger zone for many hours.   
    • I have a feeling PIYA is an acronym. Maybe it stands for Pain In Your A@@.
    • Yes and it sucks. Putting a pro view in Lp mode in shallow water means you are going to have a narrower cone. (Because LP mode is low power which is a 50% cut in power which less power equals narrower cone on a pro view)  To get a wide cone angle and sharp returns in shallow water is impossible with a pro view. To get a narrow cone in deep water if you need the gain up it is impoosible with a pro view. basicly the pro view cant do what a person wants. Which is a wide beam low gain/lp mode in shallow water and a narrow cone higher gain in deep water.
