      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 .

Recommended Posts

Heading out to Eagle River Wi. tomorrow for the Cranberry Festival. While I would rather be fishing, this is a great festival. Crsnberry baked goods galore, the world's largest Cranberry cheesecake, cranberry brats, cranberry meatballs, fresh cranberries, a person can gain a tonnage here. Also one of the prettiest areas in Wi. So if any of you Wisc. people are going to be there stop and say Hi I am in booth J14.

Isn't this Applefest weekend in Bayfield, WI too? Wisconsinites sure know how to throw some pretty yummy festivals.

That Cranfest in Stone Lake would be crazy with that many people. I'm sure someone would lose a foot with a baby stroller or a thousand! winkgrin

Never done that one, the one in Eagle River boasts between 40,000-50,000. Truthfully I think their numbers are quite inflated. I know people who have exhibited at Stone Lake who would say more like 3,000. Yes Applefest is also this weekend.

As far as the sorrels go, I did this show 2 years in a row where it snowed (outdoor show)one year there was 10 inches of wet snow that did melt but turned everything into a mud pit.

Peachy, I found this on allrecipes dot com. If you try it, let us know how it was ok? I'm kind of sketchy on this recipe. Seems a little too offbeat for me. Could be good tho!

2 pounds ground beef

1 cup bread crumbs

2 eggs, beaten

2 tablespoons soy sauce

1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

1/3 cup ketchup

1 (16 ounce) can jellied cranberry sauce

1 (18 ounce) bottle barbecue sauce

2 tablespoons brown sugar

1 tablespoon lemon juice

DIRECTIONS

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. (175 degrees C).

Mix together the hamburger, bread crumbs, eggs, soy sauce, pepper, garlic powder and ketchup. Form into small balls and bake for 30 minutes.

In a saucepan over low heat, combine the cranberry sauce, barbecue sauce, brown sugar and lemon juice. Simmer and stir until smooth. Add meat balls and simmer for 1 hour. Serve warm.

Well, back home again. What a weekend!!! Tons of people and decent sales figures. Go figure, most of my shows have been pretty dreadful this year but this one helped make up for it. Not as good as some past years, but a dang sight better than last year. Weather was fantastic all weekend, the fall colors in that area are just starting to peak. I didn't get any pictures because I forgot the camera. cry We stayed overnight in Ashland last night and drove up to Bayfield this morning, I came home with 5 pounds of cranberries, 3 pounds of smoked whitefish, and a big bag of honeycrisp apples. AAAAHHHH life is good! With the exception of dreaming about fishing all weekend I had a great time.

Sounds like a super good weekend Barb! I bought some honeycrisp at Super 1 in Cloquet a few days ago. They're pretty good. I LOVE smoked whitefish! You bought all the things I love! Why can't I live closer to you?! smirkgrin

I got no news to report. I worked most of the weekend but I did get to see a couple sisters and a few nieces. That's pretty good! School is going very well. We looked at cat vessels again today which are interesting. We have fresh walleye from the weekend and smoky pulled pork sammie w/homemade slaw so life is good here too!! laugh

    • Stumbled on this thread and nice to see that cool truck! That's is a sweet find. Reminds me of the project truck of my buddy's uncle. 1992 F150 2x4 6" suspension lift, Motometal forged wheels, and 33" tires.
    • Sacrilege!! Burn him! Burn him! 
    • Picked up a beat up old snowmobile sleigh with holes and cracks for cheap. 20 years in fiberglass mfg helped a lot! Fun little project to haul the grandsons around for some ice fishing and trail riding.
      Still need to add the windshield. I call it the "Monster Hauler!"
    • Agree to the fact that sometimes things we smoke do add up money wise.  I smoked 35 pounds of goose sausage today for the kid, spent around 100 bucks, trim, seasonings, casing etc.  But......... i got to drink about 13,14 and watch the queens while i did it, thats why I smoke. lol
    • From the tree I assume, not the stand.  But close for sure!  Nice to have a 10 pointer down (and all the other stuff) by this time of year.
    • Sucks to be you, I guess. You really don't know much about BBQ, do you?  
    • Except your thesis is contradicted by the fact that much BBQ doesn't really have much in the way of "strong spices".   
    • I wouldn't call BBQ pork gourmet. It's just finding enough of the right combinations of strong spices and salt to make the poor, tough cuts tolerable to eat. Kinda like the buffalo wings craze. Wings used to be the throwaway parts of a chicken you had to take to get breast meat. Now per pound they are more expensive than any other part of the chicken.    Not a complaint at all as I am pretty addicted to wings and I live pulled pork as well.  Just an observation./opinion. No harm or hurt feelings intended.
