Dr. Seuss Day Challenge

Happy Birthday, Dr. Seuss!


We wanted to participate in the Dr. Seuss Day Challenge but we couldn't think of anything and Jan didn't have time to help us.  But we finally came up with something perfect for us. And we even convinced Jan to create it for us.  So ..... drum roll, please ... here are Percy, Sam, Buddy and Cotton all dressed for Dr. Seuss Day.  Well, sorta, kinda, maybe .... almost.


This event is hosted by Zoolatry and Amber DaWeenie.  Be sure to stop by their blogs and see who else is participating. 


**************************

Did you have trouble finding your Google account web history after we posted Wednesday, February 29? Some have had a problem finding their web history from the directions in the Facecrooks link. (Facecrooks is a good site, one we try to keep up with because it posts good information on facebook scams.) We had a slight problem when we tried.  It says to "navigate to" but we couldn't find web history until we typed a specific url into the browser. So just in case anyone else is having a problem, we're posting a direct link and detailed directions.

Log into your Google account through gmail or Blogger or other Google app,
1) copy and paste this into your browser -
 http://google.com/history.

This will take you to a page where you will be asked to retype your password before you can enter this part of your profile.

2) There is a history list to the left. You want web history.

Check the little box and click Remove all history. It will then say:

"Remove all Web History for (name of your google account here)
Are you sure you want to clear your entire web history? Your web history will also be paused."

3) click Okay.

It will then say Web History is paused. Your search history is currently empty.

In the upper right you'll see "Your web history is limited to searches." That means you're done. :)

4) Click on drop down menu next to the name of your account in the upper right and click "Sign Out." Do not use the back button.

You are now logged out of your profile but not out of your Google account. So do not try to sign back in on that page.

5) Close that tab or window. Open another tab or window to return to your blog or gmail without having to sign back in.

You're done. You'll have to sign back in to your blog but your web history is cleared and will not be tracking you.

Hope this helps you find and clear your web history before Google initiates privacy changes.

  3. We love Seuss rhyme
    it is truly fine.
    Thank you for sharing this special day,
    Dr Seuss is 108, what can we say?
    But the cat in the hat
    who sits on a mat
    will always be in fashion,
    so THAT is THAT!

    Love Milo and Alfie xx

  4. We love your Dr. Seuss graphic, it's perfect. :-)

    We deleted our history from our accounts and from YouTube also, some time ago, turned the web history off, if that makes any difference.

    The suggestion, in the news, has been to log out of your Google account(s) before you do any searches.

  12. What a great Seuss Birthday Picture and Poem!
    And Mommy has tested turning the history on and off. It seems to catch everything you search for even if you are not logged into your current google accounts. Perhaps something to do with your IP Address is stored...anyway, off it stores nothing.
