(SiGraybeard) covered the story on December 29th, and it’s been banging around different publications, but it’s still interesting to read accounts of the drift of the magnetic poles. And there’s a possibility of a polar shift (north becomes south, etc.) during an epoch when mankind can observe it. Since it’s now changed time zones, it’s become even more interesting. My 10 year old grandson visited me in Arizona recently and became aware that there are some states that don’t shift time with the changing seasons (no Daylight Savings Time in Arizona). It gave me the opportunity to discuss Magnetic North drifting. Teaching opportunity.

I have to admit it. I like tools. And some of the custom tools like “debt collector” or “don’t tread on me” may be a bit pricy for those of you who just want an axe or a hammer, the cool factor is also important.
Can you have too many cool things? Does the guy with the most toys win? These thoughts drift through my head, but my organic attraction to tools and to using them in the field is still there. Is it just because I’m a guy? Maybe not. There are a lot of progressive university students who self-identify as male at times who would have no interest in this stuff.
