In my weekly post, “Miradoll Ragdoll Kitten Best Friends Novelty 16oz Pint Drinking Glass Tempered“, 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. Moomin Inverno Time - Moomin Muurla Tazza Smaltata - 37 CLIt worked really well if I was lucky enough to find something worth snapping. Mirage Jewels 02 Calacatta Reale Luc Sq 15x60 cm TX58 Tiles Ceramic ItalianNow, 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. Mirage Koru 02 Peach Nat Chevron 20x120 cm SV77 Tiles Ceramic ItalianI 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.Moomin mug Dark bluee 90s Moominpappa 1990-1999 by Arabia 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. Mirage Noon 02 Ember Luc Sq 20x120 cm TV98 Tiles Ceramic ItalianAs 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. Mirage Quarziti 2.0 Glacier Qr 1 R12 30x60 cm NS85 Tiles Ceramic Granite ItalianThen, I would email or DM it to myself so that I could put it into the post. Moomin Serving Bowl 23 cm Friendship Arabia FinlandSince 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. Moomin Valley Park Original Glass Tea Set Teapot & 2 Tea Cups From JapanCould 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 easyMirage Quarziti 2.0 Waterfall Qr 3 Nat 60x120 cm SD72 Tiles Ceramic Stone Ita.... Almost too easy, it seemed. The menu revealed what was available.

And, sure enough, there were my spider pictures. Miranda Kerr for Royal Albert Everyday Friendship 16 Piece Dinner Set - White(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.Missoni X Target Dinner Plates 2 And Salad Plates 3 Tags Still Attached

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 basementMitti Clay Glass, Best use for Tea.Coffe & Juices brown, mitti glass pcs of 6. My wife’s parents had a set and used them as end tables down in their rec room.Mgoldccan Serving Tagine Handmade Ceramic Tajine Dish Exquisite 10 inches Green 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.

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.Miya Spring Blossom Sushi For 2 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. MND Brand New Design Rectanglar Shape Linen Spotted Pattern Tablecloth - MediumWe 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?

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.Modern PVC Vinyl Wipe Clean Tablecloth - ALL SIZES - Code F838-1

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.

  • how do you CAPS LOCK anyway?
  • is there a files manager?Moscow-Mule Hammered-Copper 18-Ounce Drinking-Mug Set-of2
  • 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 Modern Strong Clear Glass Double Wall Coffee Mug Tea Mug Espresso Cup 14 oz Set.

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.MoDRN 15.25 ounce Clear Pilsner Glasses, Set of 4 Liquor Beer Drinking Glassware In this case, I learned a few more multiple-finger actions.
