Pi day - a day late

Friday, March 15, 2013

So funny, I had no idea yesterday was Pi day but after reading feed posts from several sparkers, I had to look it up!

WHO KNEW!!!

Could they be referring to the new movie?



Surely not!

or perhaps the food we all love to eat!!



But, of course it was not spelled pie but pi, so it had to be



they have a whole day for a mathematical symbol?? NO! Say it aint so! but yes, it is apparently true, at least it was listed on wikepedia as so.

Was this just another hallmark holiday? who knows? but it did remind me of my brother and so I am dedicating Pi day to him.

Why? because one day I went to his house, there he sat in his bean bag chair with a pencil and long piece of paper in his hand. I could see it was a mathematical problem. I was not surprised since he had always been a math whiz.

"watcha doin?" I ask

his response, "trying to find out if there really are no repeating sequences in pi!"

there was no response to such a mundane mind numbing task, I went back home! No way I could make this up!!

Here's Pi for you Hod! Enjoy!



and so I am turning green for St paddy's day!

    It was Pi day which is always celebrated in the schools so I knew about it cuz of the Mom aspect AND drum roll cuz Karen from last round told me (she's a math teacher and a computer wiz)....a palindrome 3.14.13 (same front to back as back to front).

    Ah yes, a day for all the math geeks, of which I am not one. I much prefer the pi with an e on the end. More calories, I know, but no math necessary!
