Happiness With The Old Reader, And Other Stuffs

OK, first, we looked for TBT's "restart button" tonight an we think we found it.  We were feelin around with our claws out around his back and he yelped once, so that was probly it.  Annyway, he has been more normal since then...

He caught a evil skwerl, but can ya beleeve he DIDNT GIVE IT TO US!  He said it probly had fleas.  Welllll, OK, we dont want fleas.  But he could have fleacombed it and THEN given it to us.  He said HE dint want fleas.  Or ticks.  Excuses excuses; perfectly good squirrel gone to waste...  OK, the very rare flea, we unnerstand.  Ticks, though, give us the creepies, so we allowed him to get rid of the tree rat carcass.  We'll keep tryin to catch a live clean one.

But the good noos is that he fussed around with The Old Reader today and got it sort of working like he wanted.  Sigh, he is SO fussy sometimes.  He says the world is run by Beins who don't accept things as they are, or something like that. 

But we checked it out earlier tonight.  Its "ok" but lacks features we are used to.  We told TBT to write a better one for us, but he just fell on the floor laffin.  We dint know we made a joke but apparently it was a good one....

Oh, speakin of skwerls, we got good reception on the Skwerl TV channel today.  See?
 You WONT beleeve what it was doing today!
It was EATING one of our lily flowers...
Darn, we were told those things were poisonous.  Apparently not to evil skwerls...  Thats not fair!  Well, mebbe it at least gave it a tummyache.  An mebbe then it will fall right out of the tree at our feet like a birdie smashing into the glass doors. 

Well, we can DREAM, right?

Hmmm, me and mum are not sure about Old Reader yet. We thought we had got it sussed and starting from scratch this morning (we marked all as read when we went to bed last night)there are 29 posts. Yours is the second one and we clicked on it and got the one with the socks from 12th June. We tried again and it said there were no unread posts so we clicked on your url to get to your blog. We kept getting messages on OR last night apologising for delays because of the huge amount of new blogs joining them. I hope it is temporary or we are going to miss a lot of the newer posts. Maybe we will go down the left hand list for the time and not the right hand side with the supposed latest posts. We just looked again and it has gone down to 26 new posts and yours is the only one we looked at so where did the other 2 go?
Anyway, good work to TBT getting the evil skwerl. Maybe the other one doesn't know the lilies are poisonous.

Flynn, we had an hour delay too while we re-imported the Goog;e Reader list (we thought we were missing friends). But the delay was temporary. We got a message saying The Old Reader was getting a LOT new users. We think they are caught up now.

We saw that same old "socks" post ourselfs. That was a momentary glitch. Evrythin looks OK now.

Ya know, some plants are poison to some critters and not to others.. I hope that silly squirrel knows what he's doing! Then again.. you might be right about him falling outta the tree.. that could be interesting!

we are wavering back and forth between feedly and the old reader. we kind of like the old reader better, but both will take time to get used to

Sometimes it's not just a matter of pressing 'restart' - you have to actually reboot. I'm not sure how you do that on a bean - but I'm thinking that if you wait until he's asleep then all jump on him from a great height at the same time, that could work.

Anyway, whatever you did already seems to have improved your reception on skwerl TV - so good work.

Somehow it seems SO Not Fair that squirrels can eat lilies and we kitties can't even brush up against them.

The mom had some problems with Old Reader so she's using Feedly on her puter, but on her ipad she's using an app that uses Old Reader. Confusing?? Yes it is. Oh well! We just hope we can find our furiends!

Great Squirrel TV!

Shaggy and Scout said...

We'd love to see TBT attempt to comb a squerl!

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

Did he just grab it or what? Was he down on all fours? Did he use his teefs?

Have a Fantastic (and QUIET) Fourth!

Spitty, he used "technology". A sneaky damn cage that he doesnt even have to watch to use. It has springs or something.

The largest one what he uses fer groundhogs is big enough fer us cats to get into (hey, we're curious right?) I amember LC got into one once and she was PISSED! She wasn't hurt of course... We know to avoid that. ~ Ayla

Had Google Reader not shut down, Mommy won't be using Feedly today. She used to only use Blogger Dashboard...

Katie Isabella said...

My mommy just uses the Dashboard and sees you furry well. She also hates evil squirrels and has seen them delberatly bite down her tupips that just bloomed. No reason for that..they just move on and keep biting the stems. They dig up her bulbs too...she gave up.

Katie Isabella said...

TULIPS! gees, mom and her typos. She embarrasses me all the time!
