In my weekly post, “Bonjour 50176 Stoneware 9.75 X 14 in. Oval Platter“, 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. Brand New Calphalon Classic Stainless Steel Cookware, Fry Pan, 12-inch with LidIt worked really well if I was lucky enough to find something worth snapping. BonJour Coffee Glass (Set of 2)Now, 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. BonJour Dinnerware Shaded Garden 13-1 4-Inch Porcelain Square Platter, Slate - 5I 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.Brand New Emile Henry Made In France Flame Tagine, 2.1 quart, Terracotta 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. BonVIVO GAZETARO I cafetera diseño y Prensa Francesa Fabricada Acero InoxidableAs 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.

Brand New Johann Haviland Bavaria Germany bluee Garland Dinner Set + ExtrasSince 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. BRAND NEW Martha Stewart 8 quart Multi PotCould 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 easyBordallo Pinheiro 16.91 oz. Watermelon Salad Bowl Set of 4. Almost too easy, it seemed. The menu revealed what was available.

And, sure enough, there were my spider pictures. Bordallo Pinheiro Cabbage Charger Plate 30,5 - Set of 4(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.Bordallo Pinheiro Tropical Tea Cup and Saucer Bird of Paradise - Set of 4

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

BRAND NEW Vietri Regalia Pattern Purple color WINE GLASS Three (3) AvailableThey’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 basementBormioli 1-Liter Giara Bottle (Set of 6). My wife’s parents had a set and used them as end tables down in their rec room.BRANDED Bull Horn Thor's Hand Engraved Handcrafted XL Handmade 6 Inch game of 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. Brass Plated High Profile Mortise - Style Handle 3-15 16 Screw HolesThey 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). Bormioli Rocco 49105Q771 inAlto Uno 14.5 Ounce DOF Glass - 24 CSUnlike 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.Bormioli Rocco 4945Q407 Ypsilon 8 Oz Pre-Dinner Glass - 12 CS 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. BORMIOLI ROCCO BAHIA 18 1 4 OZ ICED TEA COOLER GOBLET SET OF 6 NEW We 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. Bormioli Rocco Emilia 33.75 oz Clear Bottle with Stopper (Set of 6)We 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?
  • Bormioli Rocco Loto Wine Decanter, Set of 2While the cheap tinny ones probably wouldn’t work, could you see a use for these type of table in your classroom?
  • Break Gender Roles Novelty 16oz Pint Drinking Glass TemperedGiven 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.Bosch Teebereiter Türkische Art - Primärfarbe red, Sekundärfarbe hellgrey - TT

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?Breville® Thermal Pro™ Clad Stainless Steel 10-Inch Open Skillet
  • 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 Boston Red Sox Beer Mug, Baseball Beer Stein, Gift for Him, Gift for Fan.

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.Botanical Wallpaper Textured Washable Strippable Home Wall Decor in Multicolor 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.
