    I wonder why the URL is www.314271.com , since pi to 5 decimals is
    3.14159? I also wonder what the numerologists would make of the best 3
    digit fraction 355/113 ?

    Default Happy "pi" day!

    Sort of food-related. :-)

    Today is March 14 => 3/14 => 3.14 pi the constant/ratio for
    circles and stuff. Just wait till 2015!

    It's explained at the top of the page in tiny print

    pi 3.14 & e 2.71 are combined for 314217 or pie

    It's really quite clever and even more food related

    I think I shall make both pizza and a fruit pie tonight. :-)

    I was thinking about some sort of observance at 1:59, but got
    distracted.

    Well, I didn't have pie on pi day but I made lemon bars
    which taste like lemon meringue pie (without the meringue
    of course) so I think that counts. There are delicious!
    Actually they're lemon-lime bars because I had some leftover
    lime juice from my Caribbean-style Pork Roast last week and
    dumped it in with the juice from the Meyer lemons I bought
    last week to try. The bars are yummy. I also made lemon-limeade
    with the excess juice. Yummy.
