      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 .

Ryder Cup!

Recommended Posts

I know there hasn't been a lot of hype with this years Ryder Cup but I'll be watching and Rooting for the Stars and Stripes!

On paper our Team doesn't look all that great but we're at home so that should give us a glimmer of hope in what has become a regular Lambasting on the Links by the Euro's!

I'm picking an upset USA 14 1/2 Europe 13 1/2.

Go USA.... grin

I love the Ryder Cup. Nothing like making an Individual Sport a TEAM SPORT. Not to mention the fact that we have been dominated lately and the Euro"whiners" are still upset about our celebration and the big comeback from few years ago.

I just hope it is a tight race on Sunday so it gets interesting. USA...USA...USA...USA...USA

What a great sporting event!! What other sporting event do you see all that emotion right from the get go!! Bummer that they couldn't pull it out.... I don't quite understand why Mahan would be the final guy out... I know he had a good record last time, but I think it should have been a more veteran guy..... either way, after the whole they dug on Sunday, was nice to seem them respond.

I just hope Mahan doesnt feel like he let the team down. There were alot of opportunities before it came down to his match. Even though he chunked that chip - McDowell was most likely going to par that hole anyway - and then the match would have still been over. Its too bad though - cause thats what people will remember. I would take Mahan over some of the other guys any day. Mickelson and woods included. Mickelson and Woods dont play well on any kind of "team". Woods won a few points - but only due to Strickers great play - and Mickelson didnt do much of anything in pairs either. Then you get them alone and they both win. The europeans have the edge when it comes to playing as a team. The US needs to work on that team spirit.

I'm not blaming Mahan.... they lost the cup with their miserable Sat/Sun performance. I just think it would have been best to have an old vet, who is more accustomed to the pressure in that last slot, in case it came down to that.

I was unimpressed with Pavin and his management. I just don't think it makes sense to have Tiger in most of the 4 ball/Alternate shot portions.... he's terrible in that format. No reason to have him out there for that portion.

It is still the best golf event to watch by far.... I love the Masters as well, but the emotion at the Ryder is so neat to see....

    • Isn't a tow rope standard equipment on that brand?    Just kidding. Looks like a nice sled for the price.
    • Picked the unit up last night and assembled.  Hoping for the best come Thursday.  Might be some disappointed people if the thing doesn't work!  I'll try to give an update on how the thing works.
    • I actually cooked the heart from my dads deer this year. First time I ever had it and it won't be the last. I thought it was darn delicious.
    • The roaster method actually worked pretty well to finish the sausage.  Typically when i would try to finish in the smoker and at times in the oven i would get hot spots where part of the sausage would get burnt or dried out and other spots were not up to temp.  With the water bath all of the sausage is at the same temperature so it is a more consistent product.  I found that i needed to keep the dial on the roaster around 375 to maintain the water temp at 160 ish.  Summer sausage with hi temp pepper jack cheese.
    • The missing one that people usually put up when they post a food thread. To show if the Gloop they are posting a recipe for is worth reproducing. Looks like you already have it in a garbage bag so.......     That picture!
    • never stopped.
    • 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!
