Happy "Pi" Day!

I love Facebook.... if it weren't for FB, I would not have known that today is "Pi Day"... a day celebrated around the world to commemorate the mathematical constant "pi".  Observed on March 14th since 3, 1, & 4 are the first and most significant digits in "pi"... "3.14".

To use "pie" to recognize "pi" is not so much of a stretch.  The mathematical number for "pi" is the ratio of the circumference of any circle (i.e. an actual pie!)... to the diameter of that circle.  Instantly, this makes me think of a slice of pie :)   Regardless of the circle's size, the ratio will always equal pi... which is approximately 3.14.

So Happy Pi Day, Everyone!  Have a slice!
