In my weekly post, “Johnson Bredhers 40034958 Willow bluee 4 Piece Place Setting, 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. Juliska Country Estate Winter Frolic Ruby Centerpiece Bowl Christmas CelebrationIt worked really well if I was lucky enough to find something worth snapping. Johnson Bredhers Strawberry Fair vintage porcelain Ensemble made in EnglandNow, 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. Joint Tile Edging Trim 13 16in. x 8ft. 2-1 2in. Stainless Steel Anchoring LegsI 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.Juliska Floretta Tidbit Plates - Set of 8 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. Joli plat de la maison Christian diorAs 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.

JULISKA JARDINS du MONDE Set of 4Since 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. Juliska Oceanica Melamine Dessert Salad Plate Set 8 Dishes (NEW)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 easyJonathan Adler - Menagerie - Large Bird Bowl - Platinum. Almost too easy, it seemed. The menu revealed what was available.

And, sure enough, there were my spider pictures. Josef Strauss Low Casserole, Stainless Steel with Glass Lid(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.Joyce Chen 21-9972, Classic Series Carbon Steel Wok Set, 4-Piece FREE SHIP

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 basementJoyce Chen 22-0050, Pro Chef Peking Pan Uncoated Carbon Steel, 12-Inch New. My wife’s parents had a set and used them as end tables down in their rec room.Jusalpha Elegant bluee Tea Cup and Saucer Set-Coffee Cup Set with Saucer and Spoo 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.

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.JoyJolt Caleo Insulated Coffee Tea Mugs, Double Wall Glasses, Set of 2 10 oz 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. JoyJolt Meille Champagne Glasses, Lead-Free Crystal Set of 2 8.2 Ounce FlutesWe 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.

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?
  • Judge Classic 28cm Saute Pan With Glass LidWhile the cheap tinny ones probably wouldn’t work, could you see a use for these type of table in your classroom?

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.Judi Painted it LF-CB Leaf Wine Glass Cerulean bluee

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?Kaffeekanne Kakaokanne 1,5 L Obstmotive Obst Pfalzkeramik Winterling
  • 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 Juego De Copas De Cristal Para Cocteles Margaritas Martinis Fiestas Eventos.

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.Juego de tazas de Cafe Y Cuchara De Azucar 8 Taza Espresso Latte Coffee Regalo 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.
