Mike Rowe, Popular Mechanics & Robert Frost

Not being very mechanical, nor very popular, it’s probably surprising that one of the more enjoyable websites I frequent is that of Popular Mechanics.

They have lots of interesting stuff other than the motor-head kind of things I expected. Currently, Popular Mechanics is running stories leading up to Father’s Day from people of note and “What My Father Taught Me.” Mike Rowe’s is a particularly good one.

And any column that starts like this has to be good: 
When I was 14, I woke up one Saturday morning to see my father standing at the foot of my bed, sharpening a double-sided ax.
