Mayne 580B00000 Newport Plus Mail Post Only, White

In my weekly post, “Milan Plastic Dinnerware, Plate, 8.25 in sq, Plastic, White“, 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. MOET & CHANDON Champagne 3 x Italese Crystal Tulip Flute Glasses BNWOB BubblesIt worked really well if I was lucky enough to find something worth snapping. Milano Set of 2 White Wine 505 Goblet Mouth Blown Romanian Glassware MulticolorNow, 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. Milchkännchen H 10,5 cm KPM Berlin Rocaille I.Wahl altwhiteI 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.Mokkaset Mokkaservice Mokka Tassen Porzellan Türkisches Kaffee Set Kahve Seti 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. Milchkanne Kanne Emaille Email Creme Dekor Kuh 091827As 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. Milchkrug Krug 1 L Arabia Teema Kilta brownThen, I would email or DM it to myself so that I could put it into the post. Mollywhopper Antique Champagne Sabre SwordSince 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. Mondella RESONANCE TOILET SEAT 445x370mm Soft Close WHITE Australian BrandCould 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 easyMilk Boiler Stainless Steel Cookware Milk Cooker with Boil Whistle 4 Litres. Almost too easy, it seemed. The menu revealed what was available.

And, sure enough, there were my spider pictures. Miller 311 140 18cm Stainless Steel Saucepan Sori Yanagi 311140(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.Milwaukee DIN22 CU Presseinsätze Kupfer-Verbindungen für M18 HCCT Akkupresse

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

Mono Filio Large Teapot 50 ozThey’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 basementMind Reader Small Fruit Bowl, Fruit Display, Decorative Fruit Bowl, Fruit &. My wife’s parents had a set and used them as end tables down in their rec room.Montana basic Vase 6er Set bluemenvase Dekovase Glasvase Tischvase Glas H 30 cm 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 Assiette Ancêtre black Arabia Neuf 2016They 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). MINERAL B Round Carbon Steel Fry Pan 8-Inch 7.9 InchUnlike 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.Minerva 24cm Bratpfanne Wärmeleitende Kupferoberfläche Glatten Edelstahl - 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. Minerva Medium Hammered Copper 18cm Saucepan With Lid Cooking Pot Cookware PanWe 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. Mini Floral Scroll Wallpaper in Cool pink FL90702 from WallquestWe 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?
  • Mini Stew Ceramic Casserole Soup Pot Heat Resisting Cuisine Casseroles CookwareWhile the cheap tinny ones probably wouldn’t work, could you see a use for these type of table in your classroom?
  • Moomin FRIENDS ENAMEL BOWL , 3DL, Snorkmaiden MuurlaGiven 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.Mirage Esprit Crema Luna Ep 4 St 60x120 cm SB61 Tiles Ceramic Marble Italian

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?Moomintroll - Pesca - Nera Moomin Muurla Tazza Smaltata - 37 Cl
  • 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 Mirage Stones 10 Pierre blue St Sq 20 mm 90x90 cm SF53 Tiles Ceramic Italian.

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.Mirro 92116 16-Quart Pressure Cooker-Canner 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.
