In my weekly post, “BN SEALED 80's VINTAGE LADY CLARE TABLE MATS PLACE MATS x6 FRUIT BOWL BOXED“, 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. Bordallo Pinheiro Rua Nova Charger Plate 34 Morning bluee - Set of 2It worked really well if I was lucky enough to find something worth snapping. BNIB HERMES Porcelain Tea Cup Saucer H DECO Tableware set (2 Set) 320 Pre TaxNow, 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. BNWT Cath Kidston boxed Stanley mugs x 4 Park WildlifeI 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.Bordered Provencal Cotton Tablecloth 250cm x 160cm 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. Board pot fast Magefesa Star Spare parts Pots KitchenAs 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. Board rubber for pot Jata OPC8. Spare parts Pots KitchenThen, I would email or DM it to myself so that I could put it into the post. Bormioli Rocco 4945Q407 Ypsilon 8 Oz Pre-Dinner Glass - 12 CSSince 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. Bormioli Rocco Emilia 33.75 oz Clear Bottle with Stopper (Set of 6)Could 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 easyBoardwalk Cold Cup Lids for 12 oz-20 oz Cups, White, 1000 Lids (BWKDEERCLIDW). Almost too easy, it seemed. The menu revealed what was available.

And, sure enough, there were my spider pictures. Boardwalk Medium-weight Polypropylene White Soup Spoon(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.BODUM - 1830.01 - THEIERE BODUM ASSAM (8 TASSES) 1L NYLON

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 basementBodum 1801-16 ASSAM Tea Press , Permanent Filter, Glass Handle, 1.0 L 34 oz).... My wife’s parents had a set and used them as end tables down in their rec room.Boska Holland Cheese Partyclette to Go - Oak 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. Boston International Truffle Tiered StandThey 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).

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.BODUM BEAKER GLASS 1LTR 34OZ TRANSPARENT FOR ASSAM TEAPOT 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. Bodum Bistro Coffee Mugs, Double-Wall Insulated Glass, Clear, 10 Ounces Each (SeWe 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. BODUM Bistro Water Carafe, Transparent, 1 LitreWe 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?
  • Bodum Chambord 2 oz Espresso Coffee Cups with Saucer Set of 4 NEW CollectiblesWhile the cheap tinny ones probably wouldn’t work, could you see a use for these type of table in your classroom?
  • Boules purple silver Cheminée Tapis 35.6cm X 183cmGiven 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.Bohemia 24 Percent Lead Crystal 0.5L Small Boston Decanter Whisky Spirits Carafe

Like MacOS not liking the ALT key but uses the Windows/Super key instead for some tasks. Bowl Thai Rice Vintage Pot Temple Mong Aluminium Curry Food Serving AluminumOr the difference between a backspace key and a delete key.Bohemia Crystal Claudia gold Rim Champagne Flutes - Set of 6 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 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 Bohemia Crystal, 17-Ounce Bohemian Crystal Liquor Vodka Carafe with Stopper.

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.Bohemian Crystal Enameled colord Glasses, Vintage Pink Wine Goblets, Set of 6 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.
