      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 .

Working for Santa

Recommended Posts

Well I was trying to decide if photography was an ideal career choice for me, confused so I am putting myself to the test. eek Today I started my new job as the photographer for Santa at the Daytona Beach Mall grin. Let me tell ya, I have NEVER had so much fun on my first day. grinlaugh I was afraid I might get nervous and shy away sick but NOPE my mouth was just as big as ever laugh and the kids were laughing santa was laughing, and the mom's...............dont like the mom's to much but most were ok. I cant wait for it to pick up and get really busy. And I really really wish I could post some of the pictures I took today. I'm just excited and wanted to share my new job.

Congrats DeeDee! It's great you found a way to do what you enjoy and make some money besides.

Don't you think it's a little early for Santa though. I mean, it's not Thanksgiving yet! Good Luck and have fun!

Yea, I thought it was a bit early myself but they are suprisingly busy. I am still having a great time, still dont care much for the mom's, and my feet really hurt from my 7x7 ft area I have to stand in all day.

Awesome DeeDee! I'm glad you're 1st day was great!! I knew you'd have a blast. Working with kids for 13 years was for the most part pretty fun but I had a few moms who were a pain in the beezwax too. They just can't seem to go with the flow and loosen up a bit.

Advice for your feet: cushy sox!! That's what helps me with my CNA job (being on my feet for 8 hours really takes its toll). My cousin who's an RN at a surgery center swears by those compression type sox that diabetics wear (they also call them pumper sox or TED sox).

I have heard of the TED socks. I may have to try them. Funny how I can go nonstop at walmart on concrete, pulling heavy pallets and standing lifting and everything else for 9+ hours, Here I only work 6+ hours. I think its just standing in place, that and I may have a heel spur cry I baby one foot and the other one pays for it.

I may have to check into those socks. I was on my feet for almost 7 hours today, at a show, and they were getting sore halfway thru. My show next weekend is 9 hours Saturday and 8 Sunday. shocked That's way too many hours. Otherwise, I suppose I could wear my pac boots. grin One lady today told me about some type of rubber mat a person can buy for this purpose. It sounds like you buy small pieces and hook them together somehow. It sounds like that may work for standing in one place.

    • I guess I started this thread but never gave model name lol. I have the cozyna model air fryer its been great unit and so far non stick surface has been holding up well in dishwasher after every use. Super easy clean up.
    • We really didn't shop around much.... Just bought one off of amazon with good reviews  
    • .... I knew that was coming the second I said "vacuum seal"
    • You could have just boiled them in the bag like Del does.....  
    • Anyone recommend a brand or model?
    • Ended up making some non-breaded steak cubes (aka "Chislic" here in SoDak) that turned out friggin awesome. I took a sirloin tip roast, trimmed it up, and cut it into 1" cubes. I then vacuum sealed them for 6 hrs in a little olive oil, worchester, garlic, and coarse black pepper. I sprinkled on a little lawry's before putting them in. I did two batches... one batch "medium well" for the wife and kids, and one batch medium rare for me. Medium well took 10 min, Medium rare was 6. Turned out awesome! Even the Medium well was still tender and juicy.
    • So what you're saying is if we ever hear him say "I'm going out to the garage to give my blade a love rub" we shouldn't be too worried?
    • I have had 2 of these for a year or so. They work great for fries, tator tots, onion rings, shrimp,chicken strips.and basically anything breaded when you buy it. And they don't need any oil. Only OK if you bread them yourself. For those I spray Pam on them. The only thing is breaded fish fillets are only so so. I still prefer deep frying them. Fish is the only thing I still deep fry. I indulge my self there. Just not as good as deep frying. Pretty much everything else I air fry.
    • You missed the part about "All my blades are hand rubbed with love"
