Great day for quiche or pot pie! Not shepherd's pie for three reasons: I can't make it, no one around here carries it, and I always start to think of Mrs. Lovett ("peppered with actual shepherd"!).

Even though I was good at HS geometry (stunk at math, though), I realized the use of Pi when I bought a house and wanted to put a mulch circle around a tree and edge it with plastic edging. Then I learned I don't need to take Pi beyond the decimal, because the edging came in 20' rolls.

Some kids in my son's third-grade class had a Pi contest: how far out can you memorize and recite Pi? DS won, closely trailed by the girl who had a huge crush on him through high school. He is still such a math kid. Won't write an English essay to save his life but took Differential Equations for fun.

And finally, the Purdue engineering school cheer, according to my dad (I can't type in math on my tablet, so forgive the modern English representation)

"E to the x, dy, dx

E to the x, dx.

Cosine! Secant! Tangent! Sine!

3.14159!"

And to this day, I take Pi out to 5 places (even though edging comes in 20-ft rolls).

Let's hear it for Big Bang Theory where Stephen Hawking, Buzz Aldrin, Elon Musk and Bill Nye have all guest starred. So have George Takei and LeVar Burton but they probably don't really count . Oh, it's on tonight - maybe they'll do a Pi special.

Aw. Big frowny face. I thought, wouldn't that be cool? Son is home, we're both geeks and what a way to wrap up the evening. They're showing one that aired in January.

Scoop: Coming Up On Rebroadcast of THE BIG BANG THEORY on CBS - Today, March 14, 2019
