Ivy Bronx Gadberry Serving Bowl

In my weekly post, “Juliska Berry and Thread Butter Dish Whitewash“, 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. Kahla bluee Saks Lower Part for Butter Dish Rectangular, Butter Platter, PatternIt worked really well if I was lucky enough to find something worth snapping. Juliska Berry and Thread Glassware Bowl Clear Beautiful 5.25 Signed Free ShipNow, 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. JULISKA BERRY AND THREAD OVAL 13 SERVING PLATTER BRAND NEW IN BOXI 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.Kahla Five Senses Breakfast Plate, Porcelain, White, 22 cm, 393455A90039C 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. Juliska Berry and Thread set of 5 clear acrylic tumbler, slightly worn Al FrescoAs 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. JULISKA CARINE blueE BOWLS FOUR GLASS BOWLS FREE SHIPPINGThen, I would email or DM it to myself so that I could put it into the post. Kahla Magic Grip Kitchen Baking Dish + Cover, Casserole Dish Oven Dish 20 cm RedSince 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. Kahla Magic Grip Table Serving Plate, Maxi, Porcelain, White, 32cm 553306A90055CCould 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 easyJuliska Carine Toasting Flute Set 2. Free Delivery. Almost too easy, it seemed. The menu revealed what was available.

And, sure enough, there were my spider pictures. Juliska Classic Bamboo Natural 4 Pc Setting Set of 4 with Coupe Soup Plate Bowl(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.JULISKA FIRENZE gold PLATINUM MARBLEIZED SET OF (4) CHARGERS 14

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

Kahla Pronto color Brunch Plate, Flat Dinner Plate, Porcelain, Ivory, 23 cmThey’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 basementJuliska Forest Pewter Serving Board + 2 Spreaders. My wife’s parents had a set and used them as end tables down in their rec room.Kahla Pronto color Jug, 1,3 l, Porcelain, orange-Yellow 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. Kahla Pronto color Schüssel Schale Servierschale Salatschüssel Beere Ø 21 cmThey 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). Juliska Iberian Journey Cereal BowlsUnlike 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.Juliska Jardins du Monde Whitewash Dessert Salad Plates Set of 4 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. Juliska Le Panier Whitewash Basket Soup Cereal Bowls 6.5 SET of 4 NEWWe 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. Juliska Pewter Ceramic Stoneware Medium Serving BowlWe 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?
  • Juliska Puro Vanilla Bean 5pc. Place Setting - Set of 4While the cheap tinny ones probably wouldn’t work, could you see a use for these type of table in your classroom?
  • Kahla Rossella Cover for Teapot, Closure, Jug, Tea, 1.2 L, White Lid Onion MotifGiven 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.Jusalpha Elegant Embossed 3-tier Ceramic Cake Stand- Cupcake Stand- Tea Party...

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