In my weekly post, “Fablon 45 cm x 15 m Roll Transparent, Glossy“, 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. Festool Tasche FSK420-BAG 200160It worked really well if I was lucky enough to find something worth snapping. FABORY B01300.025.0001 1 4 -20 Grade 5 Zinc Plated Finish Carbon Steel HexNow, 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. FABORY B39350.012.0150 Cotter Pin,Retaining,Ext. Prong,PK3800I 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.Fibre Glass-Evercoat FIB-789 2.5 Quarts Paint Mixing Cups 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. FABORY B39350.025.0250 Cotter Pin,Retaining,Ext. Prong,PK600As 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. FABORY M01070.120.0050 M12-1.50 x 50 mm. Class 8.8 Fine Hex Head Cap Screws, 50Then, I would email or DM it to myself so that I could put it into the post. Filterspec Atemwege Brille Klar Persönlicher Schutz & Baustelle Sicherheit -Since 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. Fine Decor Milano 4 Plain Wallpaper pink gold (M95598)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 easyFABORY M04104.120.0060 M12-1.75 x 60 mm. Class 10.9 Zinc Yellow Coarse Hex Head. Almost too easy, it seemed. The menu revealed what was available.

And, sure enough, there were my spider pictures. FABORY M07820.160.0025 Set Screw,ST,M16 x 2mm,Dog,25mm,PK25(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.FABORY U51410.056.0001 9 16 x 1-13 16 OD Plain Finish 18-8 Stainless Steel

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

Fisco - 58ME Combinaison Carré 300mm (12in)They’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 basementFABRIC LOOK CREAM PORCELAIN BULLNOSE TILE. 3 ×24 MADE IN ITALY. My wife’s parents had a set and used them as end tables down in their rec room.FK26948 - Fresh Kitchens Tiny Flowers Green Red Galerie Wallpaper 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. Fk78466dc - Fresco Cucina Fiore Cestini Multicolor Galerie Carta da ParatiThey 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). Facile EXTRACTEUR Pointe 91676 Power-TecUnlike 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.Faithfull - Affichage du compteur de blocs de lignes (12 pièces) 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. Faithfull - Paleta de ladrillos con diseño de Filadelfia 250mm (10in)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. Faithfull General Duty Sash Clamp - 1200mm (48in) CapacityWe 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?

  • Flaviker Cozy Havana 20 mm 30x120sp cm 60003084 Tiles Ceramic Wood ItalianGiven 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.Faultless Ball Satin Stainless Steel Metal Entry Knob and Single Cylinder

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?Fleece Photo Wall Paper - Wallpaper Window View Sea Natural KN-1071
  • 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 FD22452 - Azmaara Purple Arakan Stripe Fine Decor Wallpaper.

You might want to tuck this away as an introductory lesson for Chromebooks in your classroom.
