      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 .

Season opener!!!!!! MN vs GB

Recommended Posts

Well the day has finally got here, the MN Vikings season opener. I have been very impatiently waiting for this day for 9 months now, lets hope I am not dissapointed! My prediction for tonights game is that T-Jack is going to supprise the Packers, and he is going to come out passing and will do well. T-Jack will get 260 yards passing 2 passing touch downs, and will run in for another. Peterson will have 175 yards total, 130 rushing, 45 receiving 2 TDS.

Final score Vikes 35 GB 17

Go Vikes!!!

24-13 Pack.

Jackson will be lucky to get 120 yards passing MAYBE 1 TD.

Peterson combined 150 yrds.

Time to go crack a beer that has been on ice waiting in my truck since lunchtime.

I hate to sound negative but after watching a quarter and a half, they don't look to be any better than their last season. It never changes and I really don't believe that Childress or Jackson can make this team go.

I have been waiting for Childress to prove me wrong and I would be more than happy if he did but with all the penalties and poor play, its the same ol.

I think the refs need to tighten there belts and stop throwing the flags. Its getting ridiculous when both teams have had flags 3 plays in a row and were not even out of the first quarter yet! lET EM' PLAY!

Thoughts at halftime: Tarvaris Jackson has shown some improvement from last year in that he is throwing the ball away or taking a sack tonight where last year he would have made a bad throw for an INT. The bad news is he still isn't showing any accuracy on the passes he does get off.

That isn't all Jackson's fault, though. McKinnie is suspended for four games, but the Vikings pass protection should still be better than it is. Tarvaris has been hurried, hit, chased out of the pocket, and generally hasn't had time to set his feet before throwing. The pass blocking has got to improve in the second half if the Vikings are going to hang in there.

Some people suggested Minnesota didn't attend to needs on the o-line because Zygi was spending on the defense. If so, where is the pressure Allen, Williams, and co. were supposed to bring on Rodgers?

It sticks in my purple-and-gold craw to say this, but Rodgers looks more prepared to start in the NFL than does Jackson.

On the bright side, when Adrian Peterson can break through the nine-man fronts, he is showing last year wasn't a fluke. The run defense has mostly kept Grant bottled up. But, the Vikings have got to pass the ball successfully and put pressure on Rodgers if they want to win.

A blocked field goal, ending a drive where the Packers moved the ball down-field pretty easily, is a good way to go in to the locker-room...but can The Purple build on that in the second half?

Ah well...GO VIKINGS!!!

I can't imagine why I wanted Favre for a year or 2...LOL.... grin

I'm not panic-ing just yet after 2 Quarters playing in one of the toughest places to play in the NFL against a 13-3 team. I'll leave that up to you guys for now... smile

T-Jack has been out for 3 1/2 weeks.

Go Vikes!

    • The building codes are really very important in order to keep the property safe. We need to upgrade the house acoording to these building codes.
    • And Del says ya can eat as many as ya want now!!!     
    • great cheap treat those smoked eggs.  
    • I actually prefer Honeycrisp, because of the sweet/tart flavor. Sweet tango ain't bad either. The others get TOO mushy and seem to lose flavor. But, it's a personal preference. Someone'll whine about there are better baking apples.  Made my apple roast the other day with the Honeycrisp, but put it in the crockpot instead of the oven. Came up with this 6-7 yrs ago.  And there's even a picture of it, since words give you so much difficulty, leech.            Reb's  Apple- pork roast


        One boneless 2-3 lb Pork Butt Roast Two cups  Fresh Apple Cider Rosemary Seasoned salt Black pepper to taste 4 oz Cinnamon Apple Sauce (These are the “Snak Pak” size cups) One  large Yellow Onion, sliced thin              Marinate the roast in the cider in a Zip-Loc bag, in the fridge, for 6-8 hours, turning frequently. Place roast in a greased baking dish, with some of the marinade. Sprinkle liberally with seasonings and lightly with the Rosemary.  Place thin layer of onions on top. Pour apple sauce over top. Put in a 300* oven for 45 mns to one hour, uncovered.  Cover and cook  for30- 45 mns- longer or until meat thermometer registers 155-160*. Do not overcook. Let sit covered for 15 minutes before slicing. Enjoy!  
    • @RebelSS, do you recommend any specific type of apples?
    • I forgot to put in the segment winners Spring        Juneau4 Summer     Henry's Heroes Playoff        BlackLundProV
    • Well quit hijacking the thread!!! we'll find someone serious sooner or later!
    • They can explain that over and over and I’m not buying it. I changed my ducer to the 12 like my 18. 
    • So your trying to work out the picture problem-right?
