Google Reader News

Google has announced that they will be shutting down Google Reader on July 1st. If you follow blogs this means you'll need to find a new reader for that. Lifehacker has a post about other readers you can try out. Right now several of them are overwhelmed but by the time Reader goes away they should (I hope) be up to the new load. I suspect they'll be ready within a few days. These readers will do the same thing as Google Reader but they do look a bit different. Some of them already let you sign in with your Google Reader account and automatically import your subscriptions but some of them don't, so I'm going to show you the steps to export your subscriptions from Reader so you can import them elsewhere. If you don't want to use your Google account on your new reader you can also use the import option. Click to embiggen:

And here's a picture of ME!

Sooooo handsome

I don't blog much anymore (obviously) but I am on Facebook!

Hey, remember me?

Hello! Anyone out there? It's me, BECKETT! Me and that mom and that C-A-T have been doing just fine. We've just been real slackers about blogging. I am going to try to blog again, but you can also follow me on Facebook too.

Anyway, I have been working on training that mom with the Manners Minder. My buddies Arabella and Moose have been doing Super Skills Sunday posts so I thought I would join in.

Here's my video! I am teaching that mom to put down a target and then for her to give me a treat when I touch the target with my nose.

And here's me with the target on the target base!
