In my weekly post, “MINERAL B Round Carbon Steel Omelet-pan 9.5-Inch“, 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. Monique Lhuillier Waterford Toile Platinum Open Vegetable Bowl (9 )It worked really well if I was lucky enough to find something worth snapping. MINERAL B Round Country Chef Carbon Steel Fry Pan 12.5-Inch with 2 handlesNow, 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. Minerva 26cm Bratpfanne Wärmeleitende Kupferoberfläche Glatten Edelstahl -I 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.MONO GEMIINI Porcelain Soup Bowl Diameter 12 Cm by Mikaela Dörfel 1994 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. Minerva Frying Pan Copper Tri Ply Stainless Steel HandleAs 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. Mini Clear Plastic Beer Mug Shot Glasses- 1.75 Tall 72 CountThen, I would email or DM it to myself so that I could put it into the post. Montana fiori Grande Vase 6er Set bluemenvase Dekovase Glasvase Glas 27 cmSince 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. Moomin ASSIETTE thingumy et Bob et The King's rubis green 17 cm Arabia 2018Could 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 easyMini Maslin Pan Homemade Pot Boiling Small Fruits Stainless Steel Swing Handle. Almost too easy, it seemed. The menu revealed what was available.

And, sure enough, there were my spider pictures. Mini Salzstreuer aus Glas mit Echtsilver Gewürzstreuer mini Streuer mit Tablett(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.MINT ROYAL QUEEN COOKWARE 8 1 2 DOMED STAINLESS STEEL LID F

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

Moomin Moomin Grey Adventure Move Cereal Bowl 15cmThey’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 basementMinwax Water-Based Polycrylic Water Based Ext. Int. Satin Clear 1 Gl-PK 2. My wife’s parents had a set and used them as end tables down in their rec room.Moomin Resorte Invierno Taza Estacional 2017 Arabia 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. Moomin Valley Park Arabia Moomin mug 1 piece limited F S JAPANThey 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). Mirabelle Versailles Green Floral Damask WallpaperUnlike 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.Mirage Koru 04 Nut Nat Chevron 20x120 cm SV79 Tiles Ceramic Italian 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. Mirage Quarziti 2.0 Glacier Qr 1 Nat 30x60 cm NS81 Tiles Ceramic Granite ItalianWe 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. Mirage Stones Chambrod So 5 St 60x120 cm SD67 Tiles Ceramic Stone ItalianWe 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?
  • Mırra SET 6 Pcs with Plate Arabica Coffee Culture Made in TURKEYWhile the cheap tinny ones probably wouldn’t work, could you see a use for these type of table in your classroom?
  • Mopita Petra 11 “ Stone Cooking PanGiven 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.Miya Company 4-Piece Square Small Platter

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?Morris Flower Wallpaper in Green and bluee BM60103 from Wallquest
  • 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 Mocha Brown Acrylic Lazy Susan - Standard 32cm, 12.5 or Large 38.5cm, 15 .

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