Pi(e) Day

In case it escaped your notice, yesterday was Pi Day.

If you use the American date system, it was 3.14. Not just that, but this year it was 3.1415.  You’ll have to wait a hundred years for that to come round again, so I’m guessing most of us won’t be around for it.  Worth celebrating then.

Wondering what I’m on about?  Cast your mind back to when you were at school and learning maths.  Circles.  The ratio between the circumference and the diameter.  Pi=C/r.  Which works out to be 3.1415.


I didn’t spot this but oldest son did, and as he and daughter-out-law happened to be in Bath for the evening and youngest son was joining them, where else could they meet but The Raven? – Bath pub celebrated for its wide range of pies.

Oh yes, we love a pun around here, including those that mix their references.

Now I've passed 60 I'm still doing all sorts of things I haven't done before, as well as carrying on with the things I already love. I live a happy life with my long term love Malcolm. In my blog I explore local and low tech ideas, food, growing, making, reading, thinking, walking, and lots of other words ending in 'ing'.

I love to read your comments. I don't expect everyone to agree with me, and I don't mind if you don't. However, I ask you to respect the 'circle time' rules made by my son's primary school teacher: make a comment, ask a question or say something nice. Thank you!
