Happy Birthday Albert

It’s Pi Day, Too

Einstein’s birthday and 3.14 were on the same day this year. I was surprised that I didn’t see any other people celebrating this auspicious mathematical occurrence. I guess it slipped their minds.

It was a beautiful day in Redding. I went out looking for the elusive, perfect car at a price I could possibly afford. John Harrison drove us around to different cars and lots with cars. It was good to have him with me on this journey; He knows the lingo.

I didn’t find any cars better than my Le Sabre, that were under $12,000 dollars. Anything under $6,000 had at least 190,000 miles on the odometer, and the interiors were nowhere near as nice as the Buick. I will keep looking.

When I Googled, (looked up), Albert Einstein to find a good link for you to go to for more information, I found THIS ONE which has one of the new domains, “.biz”. That’s the first one I have seen. There are a whole bunch, (1,000 or more), new dot somethings to choose from this year.

Yes, I know the heart is upside down, but I haven’t found a rose with a right side up heart, yet. I considered using one of the effect apps to flip the heart, but then it wouldn’t be authentic. If I were to manipulate a heart onto a rose, I would draw a prettier heart than this one. This rose with a heart is the real deal. No flim-flammery required.

So, there you have it; Pi Day and Einstein’s birthday greetings to all. There is still a bit more than an hour left to celebrate, in case you are reading this at the time it arrives for email subscribers.

You might be glad to know that I had two pieces of today’s Pie on Pi Day. I ate the second piece after dinner, the first having been a test slice shortly after taking the pie out of the oven earlier. So, in case you don’t have an opportunity to eat a piece of this Pi Pie, please imagine that I ate the second triangle for you. I like to share.
