In my weekly post, “Mixology Liquor Decanter Bgoldsilicate Glass Cork Stopper Rum Glass Bottle“, 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.

Karakusa Bowl Set of 4Now, 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. Miyazaki Works Jutokunabe Set Source Pot 16 18 20Cm Combined Lid-Hand Hand 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.Mgoldccan Couscous Serving Platter Deep Dish Kasriya Bowl Casriya 14 inch Large 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. MMTC - CP-2SW Nema 4 Exterior Ceiling Pull Switch redating and Pivoting CamAs 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.

Mgoldccan Serving Tagine Handmade Ceramic Tajine Dish Exquisite 10 inches GreenSince 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. Morphy Richards Accents Gadget Set, 4 Piece - Stainless SteelCould 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 easyMND Brand New Design Rectangular Shape Polylinen Tablecloth Cream - Large. Almost too easy, it seemed. The menu revealed what was available.

And, sure enough, there were my spider pictures. Mocha - CO00104 - Tragreenina - Beaded - Milan - Sketch Twenty 3 Wallpaper(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.Modern Design Toscano The Royal Chalice Queen Genevieve Brass Goblets Set of 2

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

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 basementModern Innovations Stainless Steel 18 8 & Glass Salt Container with Lid & Spoon. My wife’s parents had a set and used them as end tables down in their rec room.Moscow Mule Copper Mugs Set of 4 - Solid Copper Handcrafted Copper Mugs - New 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.

(TV dinners optional). Modern Masters ME244-GAL Metallic Paint Steel GreyUnlike 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.Modern PVC Vinyl Wipe Clean Tablecloth - ALL SIZES - Code F916-1 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. Modern Round Amber Yellow 32 Piece Dinnerware Set Serves 8 Place Home Dining DisWe 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. Modern Stainless Steel Wood Sliding Door Hardware SetWe 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?
  • Moderna Artisan Series Double Wall Insulated Wine Glasses Set Of 4 Wine And GIFTWhile the cheap tinny ones probably wouldn’t work, could you see a use for these type of table in your classroom?

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.Mom & Dad Established EST. 2019 11 oz Ceramic White Coffee Mug Set New Parents

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