Stand Back for the Pie

Barbara Muir © 2013Today March 14, 2013 is Pi Day and in honour of this
great day I went back to my pie painting and finished
it off. It is (I think) now complete. Not much has
changed since I first posted it, but little changes have
happened that make me feel happier. So I signed it.
According to the Huffington Post Pi Day is named after the
Greek symbol π which is the ratio of the circumference of
a circle to its diameter. The first three digits in Pi are 3
(this is the third month) and 14 (the fourteenth day)
= 3.14 or Pi. What better day to eat pie if you get the urge.
And any way you slice it you will not be alone in your
I live with a mathematics fiend, (Steven) who has been
known to sleep with a Calculus text beside his bed at the
ready should he feel like reviewing it with his morning coffee.
He also makes a mean cherry pie -- the point of the
painting. The pie.
Have a deliciously-happy-Pi-day.
