Happy "Rounded Pi Day!"

Every year, my friends & I like to mark "Pi Day" by eating pie, if at all possible. We try to make or buy pie, and sometimes attend a local annual "Pie Day" event.

"Pi," or π, you may remember, is the ratio of a circle's circumference to its diameter, which comes out to an irrational number that is roughly rounded to"3.14159265359..." so nerds like us round that out to 3-14, or March 14th.

This year is a little unusual, in that you can also include the year to make "Rounded Pi Day"--when you round Pi to 6 digits, you get 3-14-16.

We nerds will take any excuse to eat pie & make puns!

It's Super Tuesday!

Did you know that only ONE THIRD of registered voters actually go out and vote in a given election? That statistic always boggles my mind.

If you live in Alabama, Alaska, Arkansas, Colorado, Georgia, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas, Vermont, Virginia, or Wyoming (or American Samoa), today your state is having presidential primary elections and/or caucuses.

Go out & vote!  Let's hear it for civic participation!
