How did THIS happen?

I think I was going to get off the couch, but then I decided that it was too much work, so I just said to heck with it.

On another note, the tall guy has asked me to pass along some hopefully helpfully stuff to you.

1.  If you use an iPad or an Android devicesometimes you can't see the videos that people put on their blogs
(like the ones about Bob and Sophie in France).

The tall guy said if you get the PUFFIN Browser, you'll be able to see the videos. There is a free version and a version that costs like $2.99.  The tall guy says he uses the $2.99 version, which explains why I have not gotten any extra treats this month!!       

2.  He also said to remind you that if you use Google Reader to check out your blogs, it will be going away very soon.  He is looking at the Wordpress Reader.  You can transfer all your followed blogs to the Wordpress Reader.  (I have NO idea what all this means, but he said to tell you anyway!)

He said he likes Google Reader much better than Wordpress Reader, but if Google Reader is going away, he'll have to get used to using something new.

He said if you have any questions, please leave them below and he'll try to answer them if he can.  If you have found a good blog reader that you like, he would like to know about that too!

He also said that I am not supposed to chew on sticks when we are out on our walks and you see where that's gotten him!


  1. Jack...Sometimes that's the way I get off the couch too. Tall Guy...Google Reader was my favorite reader. I switched to Feedly and like it pretty well. I'll be interested to hear what you think of Wordpress Reader. I didn't even now there was a Wordpress Reader. I also tried Blog Lovin' but didn't care for it because I like to see the entire article in the reader.

  2. Thank you for the suggestion for iPad app!

  3. I'm laying on the couch just like you with the same look on my face... huh?

  4. Jack - Thanks for all the info. We'd have been horrified if our Google Reader had disappeared.

  5. jack!
    my blog is wordpress. but i have no idea what a google reader is. hoping that doesn't mean i won't be able to comment on any google blogs then? all too confusing for this non tekki human.
    think i'll join you. half on and half off the sofa. seems fitting!
    bring on the cookies! and not the computer kind jack!

    1. aha jack. i googled to see what a google reader is. (smile) and i think i'll just keep you in my favorites bar and keep visiting you every day. i don't mind if there's a new post or not. (though i'm so happy when there is) when there isn't i just enjoy the same one again and look at your gorgeous beige nose and big brown eyes and remember how much i love you! xo
      no reader tammyj here. just a favorites bar and happy hunting. (but then i don't follow 233 blogs like some people do! then i'd need a reader for sure!)

  6. WHY is google reader going away!?!?!?

    1. Evidently Google isn't making any money from it.

  7. Thanks for the tips, Jack. Now, how would you make up your mind if you want to be on or off the couch? We do think you can be comfty that way.

  11. Momma loaded the Feedly thing and is using it now and then to get used to it, but we still love google reader and will use it until it shuts down.


  12. Hey Jack OMDs I've been in that same predicament before when trying to decide to get in or out of a box.

    Tell TG that my mom is so untechie she doesn't even use google reader or at least she doesn't think she does. Maybe TG needs to explain where the google reader is first. If it makes reading blogs easier she is all for it and moving to another reader.
