Happy Pi Day 3/14

I love that pi is both constant and irrational.  In honor of Pi Day our family will be eating circular foods like pizza, apple pie and possibly quiche or donuts.    I may also take some time to consider other things that are constant and irrational in my life.  3.14 cheers for Euclidian geometry!

"Pi is a mathematical constant whose value is the ratio of any circle's circumference to its diameter in Euclidean space; this is the same value as the ratio of a circle's area to the square of its radius.  It is approximately equal to 3.14159 in the usual decimal notation.  Pi is one of the most important mathematical and physical constants:  many formulae from mathematics, science, and engineering involve pi."  -Wikipedia
