      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 .

    You know what we all love...

    When you enchant people, you fill them with delight and yourself in return. Have Fun!!!

Pet food recall

Recommended Posts

Please read the following to learn about what appears to be a large recall by Mars Petcare.

· FDA recall link, Mars Petcare US Issues Voluntary Recall of Everson, PA Plant Dry Pet Food Product due to Potential Salmonella Contamination (September 12)

· Mars Link,

As you may know they are one of the world’s largest pet food manufacturers (owning brands such as Pedigree, Nutro, Royal Canin and others). They produce many of the foods (brands and private label products) stocked by dealers, competitive dealers stock and national accounts (grocery and Walmart). Many of items are affected which means consumers will be affected.

Briefly here is what I have learned from reading this information:

· Mars Petcare US announced a voluntary recall of all products produced at its Everson facility beginning February 18, 2008 until July 29, 2008.

· No official link has been made to the cases of Salmonella, but according to the media statement, “…the strain of Salmonella Schwarzengrund involved in the illnesses has been detected in the company’s Everson facility.”

· The concern is the food could affect animals (eating) and/or people (handling).

· All code dates, with the exception of PEDIGREE®, are listed in a similar format as noted below:

o Consumers should look for “17” as the first two digits of the second line. Sample:

o Best By Feb 18 09

o 17 1445 1

· For PEDIGREE® the Everson code date format is as follows:

o Consumers should look for “PAE” on the bottom line – the sixth, seventh and eighth digits. Sample:

o PEDIGREE ® Small Crunchy Bites

o Best Before 02/2009

o 808G1PAE01 12:00

    • I have to look up ramps on the interweb to see if I have any to try.  Never had them before.
    • I just talked to someone who was in NE yesterday.  He said the amount of ducks and dark geese he saw was UNREAL!
    • Fuel injected so no.  If it were carbed they'd come off and be cleaned too.  The throttle bodies were cleaned though.  The exhaust valves were cleaned earlier.  Got to like Amazon for prices and vendors that ship right away.   Reeds are in then noticed when filling with antifreeze my coolant cap didn't fit. The neck warped from heat off the muffler.   I'll have to true that up and probably put in a heat deflector.  Then stabil in the tank and into the enclosed trailer for season.  
    • Yep nice to win a couple on the road, nice 5 point cushion on the Stars and Kings who are fighting for that last playoff spot. Still need to keep getting points and we should be fine even with an average record. 
    • I was knee deep in snow when I was in the woods this weekend just north of Elk River.
    • Saw the first flock of geese while in Superior on Saturday

    • I think part of the problem was that rent was too high in riverdale. It should be better at that location. And it is right off the highway may be better for them. Time will only tell.
    • Every time I drive by the land I hunt I see at least 50 in the field cant wait
