Mepra 1098VI22030D Vintage Bronzo 14 Piece Cake Set, Matte Bronze

In my weekly post, “Modern Oriental Premium Wipe Clean Vinyl Tablecloth PVC Beige Cream Rectangular“, 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. Moscow Mule 100% Solid Copper Mugs. NEW IN BOXIt worked really well if I was lucky enough to find something worth snapping. Modern PVC Vinyl Wipe Clean Tablecloth - ALL SIZES - Code F877-2Now, 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. Modern PVC Wipe Clean Vinyl Tablecloth ALL SIZES - Code F849-1I 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.Moscow Mule Copper Mugs - Set of 4-100% HANDCRAFTED Food Safe Pure Solid -... 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. Modern Retro Round 12 Piece Dinnerware Set 4 Person Dining Dish Plate 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. Modern Saucepan with Lid Deluxe 3 Qt. Aluminum Home Kitchen Professional ChefThen, I would email or DM it to myself so that I could put it into the post. Moscow Mule Copper Mugs Set Of 4 by (B. WEISS), All Inclusive Set Hand CraftedSince 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. Moscow Mule Kit with Free Extras - Set of 2 Moscow Mule Copper Mugs - 100% SolidCould 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 easyModern Squares PVC Vinyl Wipe Clean Tablecloth ALL SIZES - Code C62-1. Almost too easy, it seemed. The menu revealed what was available.

And, sure enough, there were my spider pictures. Modern Tropical 24 Piece Porcelain Dinnerware Set Parred White Round 8 Place Hom(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.Mokkakanne 0,5 L Hutschenreuther Maria Theresia Würzburg

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 basementMokkatasse D 6,6 cm H 4,5 cm Modell 711 Herend Ungarn Apponyi Purpur. My wife’s parents had a set and used them as end tables down in their rec room.Mother'S Day Gift Dont Mumble Profanities Speak Classy Lady Sarcasm Gift Coffee 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. Moule à gâteau Cuivre étamé de cuisine bague laiton 28cmThey 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). Molded Fiber Plate, 10 1 4 , 3-Comp, White w Vine Theme, 500 CartonUnlike 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.Mom, Personalized Long Distance State Coffee Mug, Mother's Day Gift, Gift for or 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. Monaco Red 16 Piece Dinnerware Set, RedWe 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.

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?
  • Monique Lhuillier for Royal Doulton Etoile Platinum 5-Piece Place SettingWhile 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.Montana drop Krug 6er Set Wasserkrug Karaffe Wasserkaraffe Glaskrug Glas 1.25L

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

  • how do you CAPS LOCK anyway?
  • is there a files manager?Mud Pie Hammered Glass Dot Cloche Set
  • 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 Moomin Bob Foundation 240mm Oval Dish MM701-324 Yamaka from Japan.
