In my weekly post, “Papel Pintado Mural De Vellón Porche De La Naturaleza 2 Paisaje Fondo Pansize“, 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. PASSIVENT HUMIDITY SENSITIVE VENTILATOR & CANOPY SET 400MM WHITEIt worked really well if I was lucky enough to find something worth snapping. Papel Pintado Mural De Vellón Prado Árboles Palomas 3 Paisaje Fondo De PansizeNow, 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. Papel Pintado Mural De Vellón Prado De Hongos 11 Paisaje Fondo De Pansize ES AJI 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.Patty Madden by Brewster HMY57506 Harmony bluee Geo Base Wallpaper 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. Papel Pintado Mural De Vellón Puente Bambú De Peonías 2 Paisaje Fondo PansizeAs 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. Papel Pintado Mural De Vellón Puesta Sol Sobre Océano 003 Paisaje Fondo PansizeThen, I would email or DM it to myself so that I could put it into the post. PE pipe Brass Clamp connector, Angle with internal thread, 20,25,32,40,50,63 mmSince 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. Peephole Night Vision Camera Large Screen Home Security Monitor Doorbell .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 easyPapel Pintado Mural De Vellón Ramo De Margaritas Moda 21 Paisaje Fondo Pansize. Almost too easy, it seemed. The menu revealed what was available.

And, sure enough, there were my spider pictures. Papel Pintado Mural De Vellón Río De Bosque Nieve 2 Paisaje Fondo De Pansize ES(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.Papel Pintado Mural De Vellón Seco Árbol Invierno 3 Paisaje Fondo De Pansize ES

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 basementPapel Pintado Mural De Vellón Sofá Balcón Océano 2 Paisaje Fondo De Pansize ES. My wife’s parents had a set and used them as end tables down in their rec room.Perry 1IO 0016D15 Schalter Zeit wöchentlich Digital Ritter 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.

(TV dinners optional). Papel Pintado Mural De Vellón Sol Montañas Bosque 2 Paisaje Fondo De Pansize ESUnlike 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.Papel Pintado Mural De Vellón sizedo De Jade pink 3 Paisaje Fondo De Pansize 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. Papel Pintado Mural De Vellón Textura Piel Leopardo 22 Paisaje Fondo De PansizeWe 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. Papel Pintado Mural De Vellón Torre Eiffel De Coche 21 Paisaje Fondo De PansizeWe 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?
  • Papel Pintado Mural De Vellón Universo De Astronauta 3 Paisaje Fondo De PansizeWhile the cheap tinny ones probably wouldn’t work, could you see a use for these type of table in your classroom?
  • Phifer Super Solar Screen WireGiven 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.Papel Pintado Mural Vellón Árbol De Coco De Playa Sol 2 Paisaje Fondo Pansize

I suspect that my learning with a new Chromebook was the same as others.

  • 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 Papel Pintado Mural Vellón El Sol Brilla Puente Bosque 31 Paisaje Fondo Pansize.
