      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 .

Kubel hits for the cycle tonight!! What a game. Bullpen was terrible, but the bats came alive. Twins score 7 runs in the 8th inning when they were down 9-4.

about time, they've been terrible after 5 or 6 innings the last few games and tonight the bats got it rolling at the end! Fun win for the Twins!

It's worse than last year...did the Twins just pick-up an arm yesterday or something. Saw the last 2 innings last night and after the game they showed Gardy down in the bullpen talking to someone throwing...?

WHAT! THEY WON!!!!???? Your kidding me! I shut the tv off and went to sleep after the bullpens performance in the 7th and it was 9-4. I haven't heard "booing" from the fans like that for Crane since Ron Davis use to pitch for the Twins!

Way to go Kubes!

A new addition to the "Twins Classic games" on FSN!

Twins cut Humber. He has to clear waivors before he can report to AAA. Twins picked up another pitcher, I believe from Colorado, can't remeber the name though.

I shut it off in the 7th last night thinking they were toast. Then a few minutes ago I checked the Twins HSOforum and just about fell out of my chair! Way to go Kubel. Much better player than Cuddyer, why not lock him in? Bullpen is a disaster though. If the Twins want to contend they'll have to do much better.

I watched the last 3 innings and it was a fun game. It will be tough for Kubel to top this game individually. I knew he had the 1B,2B,3B so when he nailed that one I thought, hey hes the third player to hit for the cycle already.

You would lose too much defensively with Kubes in there. A spot start every week or so would be fine, but every day would come back to bite them in the arssse. He sure is strokin though!!

I don't think he is a step down from Delmon out in the OF. They are about even, maybe even Kubel is a tad better than Delmon. I have never seen Kubel misplay a ball so bad it had me scratching my head- Delmon has given me a small bald spot on the other hand

OF should be Kubel, Span and Cuddyer- left to right. Gomez should be sent down

haha no... If Kubel loses 25 pounds but anyway he is where he should be. We don't need him out there playing defense, we have the right guys out there playing good defense except for the shaky Delmon Young.

kubel is 8 for 10 in this series. he had a great year last year, now he is showing why he is our DH.

His knees are better off staying on the bench and being our DH. He can flat out hit the ball. What an amazing two games for him.

    • I’ve personally been on both sides of this.   Used to love getting as much air as possible over driveways but I never understood gunning it on the other side after crossing.  I guess some are just mild adrenaline junkies.    I quit doing that for one, because it’s illegal, and two, not safe if the homeowner happens to be leaving or getting the mail at the time.   Now that I have a posted trail going over my driveway, I find it just rude, obnoxious and irritating to deal with 4 wheelers and sleds gunning it over the gravel and making ruts and eroding my base to the point of it being an expense to either plow and pack the class 5 back in place or spend the money to pave it.  I hate having to bounce over two ruts with my trailers and whatever I’m hauling in them too.   I think that’s the worst part for me.  Either jump it or be mellow on the throttle the entire way over.   I’ve seen trail groomers go around driveways before, making me wonder if that truly is a requirement or they were simply being courteous.  But I agree with knoppers, they should not drag over the driveway.  Maybe they think they’re taking the snow off for ya.  Call the people responsible for the trail and ask them for suggestions.  
    • If you want to get through ice fast and are going to re-tool for it completely, look at a Nils before making your final decision. 
    • I am fully aware of this as are most people.
    • some people are bad apples that give the sport a bad name, I as a snowmobiler have respect for driveways. FYI driveway approaches are on the public right of way, you may not block them, or place anything that can injure someone. trail groomers actually do you a favor by knocking down the bank, to keep it level. unless your groomer was not well trained, they will not groom over your driveway.
    • If code allows post frame for residential construction then by design you don't need a block foundation. 
    • Perfect that awnsers my question. Why spend $250 when I could spend $150 on a new lazer bit and cuts faster, it’s more durable but still about same weight and a chipper but. Really a no brainer. What are you seeing for drilling time with that 8 inch lazer?
    • From my experience one of my only complaints with the Kdrill is how slow it drills. It more than gets the job done but my laser 8” is faster.
    • So I’ve always fished 8 inch holes but really why? Most Anything can fit through a 6 inch hole anyway. I was thinking maybe for next season of getting a 6 or 8 inch I drill and putting it on my 1.5hp solo. Right now it’s about 24lb which is light but with the k drill it would be lighter yet. My question is would I be getting any more speed out of a k drill vs regular SM chipper bit? And then I can invest in a nice Milwaukee fuel and there we go.
    • Hi there, new here. Found this place because of this older topic.  We are planning a pole barn home on a slab. This is the 1st one in our township and the inspector seems unsure about the requirements for the slab "foundation" and insulation. When we started last year the old inspector said if the poles are through the frost level (42") you can just lay down a flat 4" slab. The new inspector seems to think it needs a foundation. Not finding much info online for this specific build. Plan as of right now. 4" radon pea gravel and barrier, 4" rock, 2" foam, heat tubes, steel mesh with 4" concrete over that. Someone here know the county (Isanti) spec for something like this? Township overrules county.  Thanks.   https://talk.newagtalk.com/forums/thread-view.asp?tid=376864&DisplayType=nested
