I wanted to correct an oversight pointed out to me by the official Pi historian who lives at the farmhouse.

Total my bad.

Last Saturday was Pi Day….

….and I missed it.

Normally I salute a Pi Day with a wave and a nod and a simple shrug of my shoulders.

But this one?  It only happens once a century.

The perfect Pi day.


And at 9:26 and 53 seconds Pi perfection is achieved.

Cue the standing ovation and a ticker tape parade. 🙂
