Phone Holder

I saw David Lynch made a wooden holder for his iPhone. It is made for filming and attaching to a tripod (see YouTube video below). I had a similar idea for my Google phone.  When I am working in the yard and using my bluetooth headphones I tend to set the phone on a rock.  I used to use this piece of webbing I had to hang it from a tree branch but it was too complicated. Inspired by Mr Lynch I made a similar phone holder, with a more pastoral use.

Popular Names 2020

In a somewhat bizarre turn, the Social Security Administration  is not releasing its  popular names for newborn American babies in 2020.  This list has been published every year on Mothers Day for almost a quarter of a century.  The official reason is the COVID-19  crisis.  Rumor has it that the real reason is the plummeting popularity of the boys name “Donald”. In California the popularity of “Donald” has dropped from #560 in 2016 to #640 in 2017 to #720 in 2018.  This is a blue state, but data available for other Red states indicates a declining popularity.  If this is the real reason for stopping this Mothers Day tradition it is a new level of pettiness for this administration.
