Japanese Kyusu Teaset - UKO - Green comb 1pot & 5chawan cups

In my weekly post, “Kaffeetasse mit Untere KPM Berlin Form Berlin white“, 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. Karl Kruger Leipzig Aluguss Series Pot with Glass Lid and Thermogrips, 3.5 lIt worked really well if I was lucky enough to find something worth snapping. Kaffeetasse mit Untere Modell 305 Bing & Gröndahl II.Wahl BallerinaNow, 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. Kaffeetasse mit Untere Villeroy & Boch Heinrich Royal KobaltI 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.KarmaArm MURDERINO SSDGM My Favorite Murder Podcast Stay Sexy Don't Get Cuff 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. Kaffekanne Polygon Athene Platin pinknthalAs 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. Kahla 11.84 fl oz 394605 A26708 °C Butterfly Senses Touch 394605 A26504 °C Ma...Then, I would email or DM it to myself so that I could put it into the post. Kasualware . Doublewall Short Drink Compass Point Set 4Since 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. Katie Alice english Garden Bol À Céréales En Céramique Profonde InspiréCould 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 easyKahla 39A269A90039C Dish Set Medium 'Five Senses 2–Piece White. Almost too easy, it seemed. The menu revealed what was available.

And, sure enough, there were my spider pictures. Kahla Abra Cadabra Lid Square, Porcelain, Pure White, 10cm, 207761A90020C(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.Kahla Diner Highlights Bowl Dish Porcelain Pearl Luster Ø 9 cm 556027A60028C

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

Katie Alice Pretty Retro Stoneware Teapot for TwoThey’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 basementKahla Five Senses Dinner Plate, Porcelain, White, 27 cm, 393457A90039C. My wife’s parents had a set and used them as end tables down in their rec room.Katja By Towle Frosted Reindeer Glasses Set Of 4 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. KeepCup Changemakers Brew Cork - Almond 16oz Travel MugThey 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). Kahla Five Senses Mega Platter, Porcelain, Plate, White, 38 cm, 393330A90039CUnlike 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.Kahla Magic Grip Kitchen Baking Dish + Cover, Casserole Dish Oven Dish 20 cm Red 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. Kahla Magic Grip Kitchen Soufflé Dish + Cover, Pie Dish, Ragout Dish, 14 cm, 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. Kahla Magic Grip Table Serving Plate, Maxi, Porcelain, White, 32cm 553306A90055CWe 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?

  • Keith Titanium Ti3036 Bottle with Leakproof Threadless Cap and Top - 40.6 fl ozGiven 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.Kahla Pronto color Jug Carafe Porcelain pink 1.3 L H 16.5 cm 577742A69410C

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?KENSINGTON GARDEN ENAMELWARE SAUCE PAN 2qt cookware new vintage NOW 30

  • 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 Kahla Pronto color Schüssel, Salatschüssel, Schälchen, Schale, 21 cm, Opalgreen.
