In my weekly post, “3D House Trees 606 Open Windows Mural Wall Print Decal Deco AJ Wallpaper Ivy“, 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. 3D Jungle Sea Boat 75 Wall Paper Murals Wall Print Wall Wallpaper Mural AU KyraIt worked really well if I was lucky enough to find something worth snapping. 3D Houses River 899 Open Windows WallPaper Murals Wall Print Decal Deco AJ WALLNow, 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. 3D Hübsche blueme 905 Fototapeten Wandbild Fototapete Bild Tapete Familie KinderI 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.3D Kaninchen Pilz Ballon 743 Tapete Wandgemälde Tapete Tapeten Bild Familie DE 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. 3D Hübscher Schmetterling 853 Tapete Wandgemälde Tapete Tapeten Bild Familie DEAs 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. 3D Huge stone, waterfall Wall Murals Wallpaper Decal Home Kids Nursery MuralThen, I would email or DM it to myself so that I could put it into the post. 3D Karikatur For Kind 36 Fototapeten Wandbild Fototapete BildTapete Familie DESince 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. 3D Karikatur Schwan Kinder 7844 Tapete Wandgemälde Tapeten Bild Familie DE LemonCould 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 easy3D Hügelhimmel 503 Tapete Tapeten Mauer Foto Familie Tapete Wandgemälde DE. Almost too easy, it seemed. The menu revealed what was available.

And, sure enough, there were my spider pictures. 3D Hut Mountain Sky 7 Wall Paper Murals Wall Print Wall Wallpaper Mural AU Lemon(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.3D Iceberg white 5 Photo Papier Peint en Autocollant Murale Plafond Chambre Art

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

3D Kerzen kiefern 477 Tapete Wandgemälde Tapete Tapeten Familie Kinde DE LemonThey’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 basement3D Icicle Cliffs 76 Wall Paper Murals Wall Print Wall Wallpaper Mural AU Kyra. My wife’s parents had a set and used them as end tables down in their rec room.3D Kinder Graffiti Wand 56 Tapete Tapeten Mauer Foto Familie Tapete Wandgemälde 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. 3D Klarer Himmel, Blätter Fototapeten Wandbild Fototapete BildTapete Familie DEThey 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). 3D Illbel fiore Parete Murale Foto Carta da parati immagine sfondo muro stampaUnlike 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.3D Im ländlichen Stil 1887 Fototapeten Wandbild Fototapete BildTapete Familie DE 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. 3D Immergreene teppiche 020 Fototapeten Wandbild Fototapete BildTapete Familie DEWe 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. 3D In Einem ruhigen SEE 34334 Fototapeten Wandbild Fototapete BildTapete FamilieWe 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?
  • 3D Indus Leaf Birds 74 Ceiling Wall Paper Print Wall Indoor Wall Murals CA LemonWhile the cheap tinny ones probably wouldn’t work, could you see a use for these type of table in your classroom?
  • 3D Kleid Girl 589 Fototapeten Wandbild BildTapete AJSTORE DE LemonGiven 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.3D Insel Schlucht 864 Tapete Wandgemälde Tapete Tapeten Bild Familie DE Summer

Like MacOS not liking the ALT key but uses the Windows/Super key instead for some tasks. 3D Konstellation 888 Fototapeten Wandbild Fototapete BildTapete Familie DE KyraOr the difference between a backspace key and a delete key.3D Interlaced Pattern Ceiling WallPaper Murals Wall Print Decal Deco AJWALLPAPER 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 files manager?3D Krähen Vogel 785 Fototapeten Wandbild Fototapete BildTapete Familie DE Kyra
  • 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 3D Inuyasha Comics 243 Japan Anime Game Wallpaper Mural Poster Cartoon Cosplay.

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.3D Irregular Art 788 Wall Paper Murals Wall Print Wall Wallpaper Mural AU Kyra 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.
