In my weekly post, “3D Handgemalte Stadt 56 Tapete Tapeten Mauer Foto Familie Tapete Wandgemälde“, 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. 3D Himmel Hanada 983 Tapete Wandgemälde Tapeten Bild Familie DE KyraIt worked really well if I was lucky enough to find something worth snapping. 3D Handiwork, Lotus 4545 Fototapeten Wandbild Fototapete BildTapete FamilieDENow, 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. 3D Handsome Panther 86 Wall Paper Murals Wall Print Wall Wallpaper Mural AU KyraI 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.3D Himmel Landschaft Stadt 7893 Tapete Wandgemälde Tapeten Bild Familie DE Lemon 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. 3D Happy Cartoon 83 Wall Paper Murals Wall Print Wall Wallpaper Mural AU KyraAs 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. 3D Harbour City 1A WallPaper Murals Wall Print Decal Wall Deco AJ WALLPAPERThen, I would email or DM it to myself so that I could put it into the post. 3D Himmel Reisfeld 55 Tapete Tapeten Mauer Foto Familie Tapete Wandgemälde DESince 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. 3D Himmel Stadt Natürlich 803 Tapete Wandgemälde Tapeten Bild Familie DE LemonCould 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 easy3D Harp Girl Castle 74 Wall Paper Murals Wall Print Wall Wallpaper Mural AU Kyra. Almost too easy, it seemed. The menu revealed what was available.

And, sure enough, there were my spider pictures. 3D Hatsune Miku 12 Japan Anime Game Wallpaper Mural Poster Cartoon Decal Cosplay(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.3D Haus Schneemann 88 Tapete Wandgemälde Tapete Tapeten Bild Familie DE

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

3D Himmelbluemen 588 Tapete Tapeten Mauer Foto Familie Tapete Wandgemälde DEThey’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 basement3D Hawthorn Schönheit 44 Fototapeten Wandbild Fototapete BildTapete Familie DE. My wife’s parents had a set and used them as end tables down in their rec room.3D Himmelstrauss 55 Tapete Tapeten Mauer Foto Familie Tapete Wandgemälde DE 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. 3D Historical Buildings Wall Paper Print Decal Wall Deco Indoor wall Murals HomeThey 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). 3D Hazy Flowers Sea 7 Wall Paper Murals Wall Print Wall Wallpaper Mural AU LemonUnlike 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.3D Hazy Pretty Lily 7 Wall Paper Murals Wall Print Wall Wallpaper Mural AU Carly 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. 3D Heart Shape Laces 7 Wall Paper Murals Wall Print Wall Wallpaper Mural AU KyraWe 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. 3D Heart-shaped plant 1 WallPaper Murals Wall Print Decal Wall Deco AJ WALLPAPERWe 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?
  • 3D Heißluftball 711 Mauer Murals Mauer Aufklebe Decal Durchbruch AJ WALL DE KyraWhile the cheap tinny ones probably wouldn’t work, could you see a use for these type of table in your classroom?
  • 3D Hohe Berge von Nebel 755 Fototapeten Wandbild BildTapete Familie AJSTORE DEGiven 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.3D Heller Himmel 74 Mauer Murals Mauer Aufklebe Decal Durchbruch AJ WALLPAPER DE

Like MacOS not liking the ALT key but uses the Windows/Super key instead for some tasks. 3D Horizon Sky 854 Ceiling WallPaper Murals Wall Print Decal Deco AJ WALLPAPEROr the difference between a backspace key and a delete key.3D Herbe En Caoutchouc 406 Décor Mural Murale De Mur De Cuisine AJ WALLPAPER FR 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?3D Horses 453 Wallpaper Murals Wall Print Wall Mural AJ WALL AU Summer
  • 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 3D Herbst Pflanze Straße1154 Fototapeten Wandbild Fototapete Bild Tapete Familie.

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.3D Herbstbirken 0483 Fototapeten Wandbild Fototapete Bild Tapete Familie Kinder 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.
