      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 .

Manny is a Dodger

Good, now he can act stupid on the west coast and we won't have to watch him on tv. You know when you have to watch all 30 Yankee/Red Sox games, ok, it just seems like 30, he is sickening and just bad for the game.

I agree. Manny is a flat out stud hitter. Around .315 career hitter with over 500HR and something near 1700 RBI's. and two world titles. Jason Bay-- come on. Teams like TB and the Yanks and others in the AL (Angels,Sox and Twins) are glad he's gone to the NL while teams like the Cubs, D-Backs, Phillies etc will have to face a first ballot HOF likely in the playoffs.

Kinda of odd seeing Manny end up with Joe Torre.

The Q is -- can he keep the "Dew" rag -- Most say no.

Manny will be Manny and be upset and not run out grounders and not dive for balls.

Manny is a cancer

I will give the guy credit for his hitting ability, but he has no respect for the game as far as playing it the right way on both sides of the ball. I have never liked him and feel bad for the kids that think he is someone to emulate. Total classless act. Kirby had fun with the game, laughing, smiling, and messing around, but he had respect for it. You never saw him dog it like Manny does. Sometimes I don't think he even understands the concept of the game. He may be fun when he's happy, but how often has he whined about his contract in mid season and demanded trades or just pulled himself out of the lineup becasue he's not happy today. Ya, I want that on my team.

Dogged it on a ball hit in the gap last night. Let the batter get a triple instead of holding him to a double. I think it was still scoreless at that point. He was lucky that didn't cost them the game. Too busy worrying about his next AB. Not worth having, period.

manny is a stud. I would love to have him on my team anyday. One of the best hitters in baseball

Agreed. He is one of the great hitters in the history of baseball, and while yes he is a little oddball during the regular season, his performances in the playoffs are legendary. He will be in the Hall of Fame.

I also would welcome him on my team anytime. I forgot to mention he has 2 rings.

His butt should be on the bench....anyone who takes almost 6 seconds to run to first base is a JOKE. He is a disgrace to the game of baseball.

Let him retire as a Dodger...that's a good place for him.

Manny is a joke and he would be the last person I would want on my team. If he actually put some effort into defense and base running, got an attitude adjustment, and stopped being such a slacker he probably could be one of the best players in the game. But until then he is just a joke who wants attention.

There are much better players out there who try their hardest every game that I would choose over Manny any day. The Dodgers definately got the short end of the stick in the trade! Go Jason Bay!

no way did the Dodgers get the short end of the stick. They got a hitting machine in their line up. Jason Bay is a no namer. Lets not forget Boston won two WS with Manny. Counldn't have been to much of a cancer. Was Manny 4 for 5 last night?

    • There's really no wrong way of doing a roast if ya ask me, it's all personal preference. Crockpot,  roaster, oven or boiled (del) . Although I do enjoy throwing cold smoke this time of year at a roast before it hits the roaster!!
    • 2nd that,  30 years here...
    • oh wow!!!!!  poster too!!
    • Yer gonna be blowin' chunks one of these days, Delbert. Why not just an easy overnight marinade, then in the crackpot on low, and lift that lid a few times to keep the heat low? I always pull mine at 4-5 hours on LOW, not the 6-8 they say. I have about 155* internal and still pinkish at that, and I have 3 different crackpots I use. Never had it fail in oh, ten or fifteen years.....maybe because I always do a top round or rump, instead of an arm or chuck. You DO  occasionally get a tougher one, that has a lot of sinew in it, that's why I eyeball mine so carefully. (working 2 yrs at the butcher shop helped, too) I always let it sit in a covered glass dish for 10-15 mns before I start slicing away....
    • I worked with stainless for 28 years, it's the way to go.
    • Yeah, I forgot to include the LEM, which is basically the Rikon with a different badge. I know that style will cut better and definitely be a better unit. Just not sure if I am going to justify the price at 2x higher for a very occasional piece of equipment.    A wood bandsaw could be used. The saw doesn't know whether it's cutting meat or wood. The difference is that a stainless table and blades would be preferred IMO. Cleanup probably isn't much different between all of them.
    • Paint is roughy just used what I had but pretty dang happy with it for 30 bucks.  First charcoal test lasted 6-7 hours.A5B3A72F-6F87-445B-949E-92B20BF41ECF.MOV  
    • I still think sous vide is the ticket if you want the lean roast to be tender, juicy, and pink .  (must resist temptation to insert inappropriate remark here) Next I think I will try the accelerated simulated dry aging where the meat is brushed with fish sauce before sealing in the bag and going in the refrigerator, and then held at 103 for an hour or so (not too long) in the bath before cooking at 130.  
    • I purchased the FLX-28 last season after using the 18 for several years and wow, what a night and day difference!  I really enjoy the auto depth range feature and digital depth readout.  No more taking time to guess the depth!  Weed mode rocks in shallow water weeds when I'm looking for 'gills.  The two zoom zones are great especially for suspended crappies when the 6 foot bottom zoom isn't enough.  Now the bottom 12 feet is there.  Great battery life and it's much quieter than the 18.  Color customization is nice (I have it on palette 3) and I don't have any interference from any other flasher thanks to 20 rejection modes.  I've seen the Marcum 6 and 7s in action and they are also very nice units and allow for lots of customization.  Biggest issue is time to learn the features and the price point.  Still hard to beat the quality of Vexilar or the service the company provides!
