      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 .

Vikings 12 Lions 10

Just think, you guys (vikings fans) are a handful of blown and bad calls away from having a new coach. By all rights the last two weeks should have been losses and Ziggy's blood pressure was on the rise prior to the Saints game. Be careful what you wish for....the let down could come later in the year when you need it least, thanks to a coach who got a second chance and had little to do with the past two wins.

If they make the playoffs, and they have a great chance, they oughta be ashamed of themselves being there. Especially after these past 2 games. Ugliest wins I have ever seen.

Terrible division all around.

Exactly why they should make it. Horrible teams in what once was the best division in the NFC. I know the Super Bowl totals from the 80s and 90s say otherwise (Giants, Cowboys, 49'ers) but the NFC Central (used to be anyway) always seemed to beat each other up, then not have any steam left on the playoffs, now they are just bad.

Found it very interesting how they spread the field with 4 wide receivers and Berrian gets an 86 yard tochdown. So right after that, what does our brain child of a coach do??? Goes right back into a tight power formation and try to run the ball up the middle. Sure it is easy to defense Peterson when they run him right up the middle with all 11 guys inside the tackles. I am convinced........Childress is the antichrist. FIRE HIM NOW!!!!! What needs to happen before he gets canned? The refs are winning the game for us, not Childress.

A terrible team with terrible fans.

Shoot, at least they won.

The fans didnt have anything to do with any of their performances.

I do agree they arent very good.

More agressive play calling to free up Peterson would help. Spread things out a bit.

Terrible team with terrible uniforms with terrible fans that play in a terrible stadium.....etc, etc...

Second and third round draft choices to the team stupid enough to take Chilly off of our hands. Packers probably do know how lucky they were!

Holy cow the vikes are terrible. If the refs keep blowing calls they may actually have a shot! These guys are so lucky. Should be 1-5. With they way the vikes are playing they may acually be able to end the season 8-8!

Go Packers!

The Vikes uniforms are terrible? I think Chris Hovan said it best:

"The Packers uniforms look like someone puked all over them"

Once again, it is a line used on KFAN. Not to mention he says it about a lot of teams.

Now we're debating uniforms? Don't take it so serious, geesh!

Chris Who? As in, who cares what he thinks!

What Hovan said is dead on, green and gold-not so great together. Could be worse, those Jets uniforms deserve to be in a dumpster behind the Meadowlands. cool

I guess they were going to be a one game only thing, but if I remember right, it was the game Favre threw 6 TDs, so I think being superstitious they thought they could win everytime they put them on. Ugliest things ever. The other old Jets unis were ok, with the outline of a Jet on the helmet, but the other ones- gotta go

Man that was a stinkfest of a game. How do you win by 2? On that team? Horrible vikings team and lucky at the same time. Chilly is horrible and has no idea how to use the most explosive back in the league. Hopefully we get a new coach that can use him so we don't pull a Barry Sanders. It was a joke and pretty unwatchable. Thanks for DVR's so I didn't have to watch the whole dang train wreck!!!

Oh come on guys, it didnt look good but they won, and thats all that matters! A win next week, ugly or not would fill the band wagon! Oh by the way Vikings are in first place in our division! It could be worse you could be Lions fans, or even worse you could be a Packer fan!

    • We had a tire blow out a few weeks ago while heading to Zumbro Falls so I just put 4 new tires on the camper last week. Decided to go with the new Goodyear Endurance tires. I also packed all the bearings while I had the wheels off.  
    • Has anyone tried using a picnic basket? 
    • Last nites work. 13 qts stewed tomatoes, 5 pints juice and 15 pints salsa!
    • I'll second that!! Gotta get some more cob cawn today myself....
    • From the  picture it is a male yellow headed blackbird; IMO there is even a faint white bar on the wings which may be what you describe as "the ring on its back" and the black smudge under and behind the eye.  I can't tell about the bill, but on a cowbird the bill is quite heavy;  not nearly so stout on the YH blackbird. Immature male yellow headed black birds are not so bright yellow as the adults, and there should definitely be some young of the year fledged by this time of the year.   If the picture is not accurate then we will need a better photo to do better than that.  IMO This picture does not show a brown headed cowbird.  Most cell phones will take a better picture and if it is tame enough please post another or even better a couple more.  The more different poses the better. Yellow headed blackbirds are almost invariably connected to swampy areas, especially those with cattail fringes.  They also tend to be around in groups, especially groups nesting in the same swamp not mixed in with red winged black birds.   The females of both species are quite drab, and quite distinct from those of the cowbirds.
    • I do live by a river and have lots of RWBB, maybe it will yellow up. That's a very distinct rusty brown ring on it's back though, I didn't see that in any of the YHBB pictures.
    • This furnace has 2 pipes. The larger pipe about 4" is the air intake is supported through ring #29. The smaller pipe inside the larger pipe about 2" is the furnace exhaust connected through the larger ring #30 and screwed to the raised portion of ring #29. My furnace a vintage Hydro Flame Convection with dual direct vent, needed no power, and used a pilot light. Had the identical 2 pipe direct vent as yours. I built 2 rings similar to your drawing. Had 2 major issues: 1. Anytime the wind exceeded 20 mph, my pilot light would blow out even when the furnace side of my house was parked to the leeward side due to wind eddies.  2. At the exhaust cap which was about 1 3/4" from the side of the house would scorch the side surface above the cap and the moisture from burning Propane (1/2 pt. per 10#) would freeze on and below the exhaust when temp went -10 or below. Second year I re-designed using the Pipe Cap photo 1 from Menards for under $10. I cut off the bottom half at the black line and cut a hole on the outside flat surface for the exhaust pipe. This was my fresh air intake. Also filled the inside of the cap with a disassembled expanded metal filter from a motor home stove top exhaust filter.  Photo 1   Secured it to my house and ran the exhaust pipe through the hole in the end. Attached the exhaust pipe to a 2" x 3" aluminum gutter down spout used as a chimney. Photos 2 and 3. Totally solved my issues. You may also find a similar cap to photo 1 for the exhaust instead of the pipe. Most of the caps I was able to find had a 4" connection point so you would need to modify to 2" or whatever size you exhaust pipe is. How ever you do it, cover all openings with a screen to keep the Mud-daubers out as they love burned propane orifice area to build there nest.  Photo 2 & 3
    • sure looks like YHBB.  open fields and swamps close by? They like to hang out where the RWBB do.  Cannon SX30IS is pretty cheap online. 35 power zoom. good for still shots.   
    • Going to bait tomorrow with fryer grease, bread, dog food, cherry frosting, peanut butter, soft candies, raw white sugar, and popcorn. I am throwing everything at them tomorrow, hopefully the bears like the variety!
