In my weekly post, “Julia Knight Classic 13 Yin Yang Bowl Snow Pattern w Mother Of Pearl New“, I like to include a photo of something that I’ve taken from the previous week.

There was a time when I’d put my original camera around my neck and go looking for things to take pictures of. Kaffeeservice für 10... Hutschenreuther unbekannte Formen Jugendstil bluemenkanteIt worked really well if I was lucky enough to find something worth snapping. Julia Knight Dogwood 4 Bowl, Pink Ice (9515245)Now, with the camera in my Smartphone, I always have the ability to take pictures in my pocket. It’s funny how many more pictures that I feel inspired to take this way. And better ones too.

Anyway, last week I was rolling up the solar blanket to the pool and noticed a spider in this huge web over my shoulder. Julia Knight Inc Classic 13 Yin Yang Serving Bowl -Aqua and Mother of Pearl NewI watched for a minute until I realized what she/he was doing. The spider was traversing the web picking up the things that got caught during the night before.Kaffeetasse Donatello Art Deco Jugendstil pinknthal My mind flashed back to elementary school science where we learned how a spider doesn’t get stuck in its own web.

I was pleased with the picture as I got as close as I could to get a definition of the spider and the things caught in the web. Julia Knight Inc Florentine 15 Round Serving BowlAs per my regular routine, I took 2 or 3 pictures of the same thing so that I could get the best picture lest I move the camera while taking the picture.

Anyway, that’s the background for this post!

When I write my Sunday post, my routine was to grab the camera on my desk and flip through what I had taken and find one to include. Julia Knight Inc Peony Round Deep Pasta BowlThen, I would email or DM it to myself so that I could put it into the post. Kaffeetasse mit Untere Wedgwood ColchesterSince it’s only a task that I do once or twice a week, the inefficiencies kind of bothered me but not enough to do anything about it.

However, in my readings lately on Windows 10, I’ve been reading about the Your Phone abilities. For the most part, the writers were excited about the concept of texting from your computer keyboard. I wasn’t as excited. Kahla Abra Cadabra Lid Rectangular, Cover, Porcelain Lid, Lid, 10 cm, Green blueeCould there be more?

Out of boredom, I installed this on my phone and activated the utility on my computer. Unlike other synchronization things I’ve used, this really was seemless and easyJulia Knight Lily Platter, 17-Inch, Pomegranate, Red, (FREE SHIPPING). Almost too easy, it seemed. The menu revealed what was available.

And, sure enough, there were my spider pictures. Julia Knight Peony Pedestal Bowl, 8 Kiwi, Green Sand Hand Cast Aluminum NEW(As well as the thunderstorm clouds coming in from Boblo Island)

To work on the post, there was none of this sending the picture to myself. I just grabbed it from the Your Phone app and bam, it was in my post.

I remember Arthur C. Clarke’s quote…

Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.

I had that moment!

I just wish that I’d done it sooner.

… TV dinner tables?

David Garlick was a week ahead of me on this one with his Twitter response to last week’s post.

Maybe that’s why he was a principal and I wasn’t.Juliska Berry & Thread French Panel Stone Grey 11.5 Serving Bowl

Yes, there was the concept of the folding TV dinner table. There’s a bunch still for sale –

Kahla Dîner White Étagère 3-pcs., Cake Stand, Tiered Platters, Stand Bowl, StandThey’ve gone up in price! And appear to be more solid than the ones in my memory.

Currently, we don’t own a set but I do remember, as a child, of having a set that we kept behind the door going down to the basementJuliska Berry & Thread Whitewash 16 Serving Bowl JSBS W. My wife’s parents had a set and used them as end tables down in their rec room.Kahla Magic Grip Kitchen Baking Dish + Cover, Casserole Dish Oven Dish 20 cm Red I stole the idea when furnishing an apartment at university. It was affordable, to be sure, from the second hand store. $5 a set, if I recall correctly.

They weren’t very solid. They appeared to be made of tin and had a flowered pattern on them and fluted edges. Kahla O The Better Place Plate Deep Dinner Porcelain White Ø 25 cm 026413A90002CThey folded up neatly for storage and the concept was to put your dinner/supper on them so that you could watch television while eating. (TV dinners optional). JULISKA Berry &Thread Scallop Dessert Salad Plate (SET OF 4) NIBUnlike a regular table, they weren’t a permanent addition to a room – just for those special times that you ate supper while watching television.

Or so the story goes…

In both our families like David’s, the television was turned off at meal times and we ate as a family around the kitchen table.Juliska Berry and Thread Medium Oval Platter Whitewash In our case, the dining table was used for special dining occasions when we had company but mostly as a collection point for stuff at other times.

So, why did we have TV tables? For those fancy meals with company, they served as holders for the food as we loaded up buffet style. JULISKA CARINE blueE BOWLS FOUR GLASS BOWLS FREE SHIPPINGWe also used them to play games like checkers, Monopoly, on them. But that was about it.

These days, I can’t remember seeing them out for sale in stores so I don’t know if they’re not there or they’re such a seldom-purchased article that they’re largely hidden. Juliska Classic Bamboo Ceramic Stoneware Medium Serving Bowl NaturalWe do see them when we’re out antiquing and it does bring back childhood memories!

For a Sunday morning, your thoughts?

  • Do you currently own a set of TV dinner tables?
  • Did you have them in your youth?
  • Were you allowed to eat and watch television at the same time?
  • Juliska Country Estate Dinner Plate Delft blueeWhile the cheap tinny ones probably wouldn’t work, could you see a use for these type of table in your classroom?
  • KAHLA Pronto Aronda Salad Dish Small Bowl 8 1 4 Inches White Hard PorcelainGiven their price point and the portability, there has to be all kinds of functionality for these that I’m not aware of. Do you have a unique use for these things?

I could have used this when I got my Chromebook.

Now, a computer is a computer is a computer but there are little gotchas with various operating systems that take a bit of getting used to.Juliska Isabella Tulip Mouth-Blown Large Goblet

Like MacOS not liking the ALT key but uses the Windows/Super key instead for some tasks.

Platter They’re easily learned once you set yourself on a path to actually learn them.

I suspect that my learning with a new Chromebook was the same as others.

  • what’s that magnifying glass doing on the CAPS LOCK key?
  • how do you CAPS LOCK anyway?
  • is there a files manager?Kahla Pronto Jug, 1,3 l, Porcelain, White
  • is there a Task Manager?
  • where did all the Function keys go and what do those new symbols mean?

And other things. Of course, they’re all easily found with a simple Google search but they’re all nicely laid out in this Juliska Pewter Stoneware 10 Serving Bowl.

Work your way though the menu on the left and see the results appear graphically in the main part of the screen. Although I’ve used this Chromebook for a couple of years now, there were still a few new things to learn.Juliska Quotidien Lidded Sugar Bowl White Truffle In this case, I learned a few more multiple-finger actions.

You might want to tuck this away as an introductory lesson for Chromebooks in your classroom.
