Happy Pi Day– SPLAT!

March 14, 2017

Pi Day. March 14th. 3.14. Ha-ha. I get it.

And thereโ€™s a wild and woolly norโ€™easter blowing thru New Hampshire, USA.

Great day to sit by the fire and eat 3.14159265358979323846264338327 pieces of pie. Rounded to the nearest decimal place, of course.

Itโ€™s also a great day to celebrate our differences. Cheers to all! ๐Ÿ˜Š

    Pi Day is my husband’s birthday. All the years we spent in the UK, we never had pie on Pi Day because we write the date 14.3 in the UK which does not make for an edible pun. Now we are in the US, we have still never enjoyed pie on Pi Day because we eat special birthday food (tonight I am cooking curry) and the traditional cake.

      Ha! Great story, Laura. I first learned of the UK’s different date writing convention when I came across it in an Agatha Christie murder mystery. Yes, you can learn a lot by reading homicidal escapist literature… : )

      Always great to see you. P.S. Maybe next year you can serve hubby’s curry in a pie plate. : )

        The past few years I have been trying to convince him that what he really wants for dinner is either a chicken pot pie or a curried veg pie. Maybe next year will be the year.

    I saw a tweet that it was Pie Day. Sounded good to me. I never made the math connection until I came here. You are such a smart man! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Adorable bakers! I want to bring one home with me – to bake me a pie, of course.

    Hope you are well, Mark. Stay by the fire and keep your toes warm!

      Maddie! You are the sweetest surprise since I found that lemon meringue pie in my Christmas stocking!! FWIW: I never got the pi-pie connection till someone pointed it out to me a couple of years ago. Kinda embarrassing since I was a math major. Guess I spent too much time on congruent triangles, and not enough on radii and circumferences… : (

      I rode out the storm, and was able to raise my cholesterol 3.14159 points. Great to see you, as always!! : )

    I keep forgetting about Pi day because I have 5 family birthdays in March!

    Mother-in-law: the 6th
    Younger sister #2: 17th
    My wife- Cimmorene, the Wavemistress: 20th
    Younger sister #1: 25th
    My son: 29th

    Hey Mark- I’m not doing much blogging lately- BUT- I am very active on Twitter, and I see you have a presence there! this silly “jaklumen” guy replying to your tweets is me!

      Yow! It takes a lot to overwhelm Mr. Pi, but I think 5 birthdays would do it. I have a hard time remembering one!!

      Always good to see you, Jak, and thanks for the heads-up re Twitter. Yes, I’m one of many looney birds chirpin’ away on that playform. I shall keep a bird’s-eye out for you, sir– cheers!! : )

    Definitely for a mathie, this is a dessert day for you, Mark.

    I like Pi day. I’m not sure why really, it just seems like a cool day. ๐Ÿ™‚

    And although I can’t remember as many decimal places you’ve written in your post, I’m proud to remember up to 6 decimal places because of this song here from Phineas and Ferb. ๐Ÿ˜›

      I like to have a big party on Pi Day. I start setting the table, but I always run out of decimal places… ๐Ÿ˜„

      Hi, Lily! I just listened to the Phiny & Ferb song, and I think it spoiled me: every time I go to a bake sale now, I’m gonna expect the pies to sing. Of course, if they do, I’ll be worried… ๐Ÿฐ๐ŸŽถ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿš‘

      Great to see you, you’re a sweet banana cream in a sea of rhubarb!! ๐Ÿ˜Š

    I am going to be celebrating “ze pie” day every day! Thank you for making my day!!! ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿค“๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜€Now we can safely wait for the Ides of March fearless! If only Julius knew you…. ๐Ÿค”

      “Beware the Ides of March!!” My mother used to say that to us (true) on the 15th of March when we were kids. I wasn’t quite clear on the details, but I always wore a cast-iron undershirt that day, just to be on the safe side… ๐Ÿ”ช๐Ÿ”ช๐Ÿ”ช๐Ÿ”ช๐Ÿ”ช๐Ÿ”ช๐Ÿ”ช๐Ÿ”ช๐Ÿ”ช๐Ÿ”ช๐Ÿ”ช๐Ÿ”ช๐Ÿ”ช๐Ÿ”ช๐Ÿ”ช๐Ÿ˜ฒ๐Ÿš‘๐Ÿ‘ฝ๐Ÿ‘ฝ๐Ÿ‘ฝ๐Ÿ‘ฝ๐Ÿ‘ฝ๐Ÿ‘ฝ๐Ÿ‘ฝ๐Ÿ‘ฝ๐Ÿ‘ฝ๐Ÿ‘ฝ๐Ÿ‘ฝ๐Ÿ‘ฝ๐Ÿ‘ฝ๐Ÿ‘ฝ๐Ÿ‘ฝ๐Ÿ‘ฝ๐Ÿšฝ

      Poor Julius Caesar! People would come up to him on March 14th and whisper: “Beware the pies of March!!” He knew exactly what to do: wear safety goggles and a raincoat, and hope he got hit with a lemon meringue, ’cause that was his favorite. Poor devil! He survived Pie Day, but then he let his guard down the following day, thinking he was safe. He should have listened to my mother… ๐Ÿ‘ฒ๐Ÿ‘ต๐Ÿป๐Ÿจ๐Ÿจ๐Ÿจ๐Ÿจ๐Ÿจ๐Ÿจ๐Ÿจ๐Ÿจ๐Ÿจ๐Ÿจ๐Ÿจ๐Ÿจ๐Ÿจ๐Ÿจ๐Ÿจ๐Ÿจ๐ŸŒ‚๐Ÿ‘™๐Ÿ’ฅ๐Ÿšฟ

      Thank you for your delicious comment, dear Marina! Now I have to go hit myself in the face with 314 pies because I took so long to reply. I don’t mind the getting hit part, it’s having to bake all the pies myself that wears me out. Let’s see, I’ll need 314 lemons, 942 eggs, 470 cups of sugar, a plastic toga and matching bathing cap… ๐Ÿ˜ฉ๐Ÿš๐Ÿœ๐Ÿ๐Ÿž๐Ÿก๐Ÿฆ๐Ÿง๐Ÿฉ๐Ÿญ๐Ÿฎ๐Ÿฐ๐Ÿฒ๐Ÿณ๐Ÿต๐Ÿ’‰๐Ÿ’Š๐Ÿ’Š๐Ÿ’ฃ๐Ÿ’ฅ๐Ÿš‘๐Ÿ‘ฝ๐Ÿ‘ฝ๐Ÿ‘ฝ๐Ÿ‘ฝ๐Ÿ‘ฝ๐Ÿ‘ฝ๐Ÿ‘ฝ๐Ÿ‘ฝ๐Ÿ‘ฝ๐Ÿ‘ฝ๐Ÿ‘ฝ๐Ÿ‘ฝ๐Ÿ‘ฝ๐Ÿ‘ฝ๐Ÿ‘ฝ๐Ÿ‘ฝ๐Ÿ˜Š


A penny for your thoughts. I'm on a tight budget here.
