In my weekly post, “Papel Pintado Mural De Vellón Sol Girasol Campo 23 Paisaje Fondo De Pansize ES“, 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. Pennello Ovalino Setola Bionda Lunga Manico Legno Verniciato Misura 16 120 Pz 12It worked really well if I was lucky enough to find something worth snapping. Papel Pintado Mural De Vellón Sol Pastoral De green 2 Paisaje Fondo De PansizeNow, 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. Papel Pintado Mural De Vellón Tabla De Corredor Jardín 2 Paisaje Fondo PansizeI 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.Perel 06624 Voile d'Ombrage Triangle pink 5 x 5 m 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. Papel Pintado Mural De Vellón Terraza De Árbol Tropical 2 Paisaje Fondo PansizeAs 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. Papel Pintado Mural De Vellón Textura De Roca 34 Paisaje Fondo De Pansize ES AJThen, I would email or DM it to myself so that I could put it into the post. Perno Estraibile Cerniera Cancello Acciaio Placcato Ottone 100mm + Viti 6 PaiaSince 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. Petzl S02Y 250 JET Throw-Bag, 250 g, YellowCould 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 easyPapel Pintado Mural De Vellón Tierra De Nieve whitea 2 Paisaje Fondo De Pansize. Almost too easy, it seemed. The menu revealed what was available.

And, sure enough, there were my spider pictures. Papel Pintado Mural De Vellón Torre Eiffel París 3 Paisaje Fondo De Pansize ES(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.Papel Pintado Mural De Vellón green Césped Árboles 221 Paisaje Fondo De Pansize

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 basementPapel Pintado Mural De Vellón Vid green Ventana 23 Paisaje Fondo De Pansize ES. My wife’s parents had a set and used them as end tables down in their rec room.Photo Wall Paper Abstract Ornaments Vines Liwwing No. 646 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. Photo Wall Paper Flowers Blossoms Sheets Tulips Liwwing No. 2277They 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). Papel Pintado Mural Vellón Acuarela De Pájaros Y Flores 2 Paisaje Fondo PansizeUnlike 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.Papel Pintado Mural Vellón Atardecer Dolphin Saltando 3 Paisaje Fondo Pansize 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. Papel Pintado Mural Vellón Cielo De Desierto colorado 23 Paisaje Fondo PansizeWe 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. Papel Pintado Mural Vellón Diálogo De Grafiti En Calle 2 Paisaje Fondo PansizeWe 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?
  • Papel Pintado Mural Vellón Fotografía Del Paisaje Mar 32 Paisaje Fondo PansizeWhile the cheap tinny ones probably wouldn’t work, could you see a use for these type of table in your classroom?
  • Photo Wall Paper Ornaments Rope Baroque gold Fine Liwwing No. 276Given 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?

As always, please share your thoughts in the comments below.

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.Papier Peint Photo Action Stormtrooper Captain Phasma Inscription Liwwing Numéro

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

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