I was trying my hand at a bit of humour.

Hmmm.... I wonder if Canadian Pi is larger or smaller than American Pi? After all, gallons are different... and liters vs gallons even more different...

Sorry r ranson, but April only has 30 days, so I guess we don't get Pi day here in Canada at all.

Happy Pi day!!
May all your circles be properly round and all your numbers add up! :D

Oh, and eat some pie too, do your math to be sure it's properly round!

My pup likes muffins so I made her one blueberry muffin for Pi Day (she's sweet and shared)

She was so nervous about being polite and waiting for us to say it's ok while she was dying to dig in!

Technically it's a Pi Pan, but I use it as a multitasker.  Come on Jay....you know you need one!

Hard to believe that Earth has travelled all the way around the sun since Greg's last post above. I'd say that's worth celebrating on Pi day, but the orbit's an ellipse, not a circle!

The date format isn't completely uniform...I've come across two insurance providers (both strictly Canadian companies) who use opposite formats, so it definitely messes things up.  That said, is May Day, the new last day of April, considering I've never known April to be longer than 30 days...perhaps that is where we should place the leap day instead of February.

Pi Day typically falls during Lent, so we tend to do a savoury pie rather than a dessert pie...a meat pie like chicken pot pie, or get lazy and make a pizza.  Today also happens to be a nephew's birthday so it's tough to forget.
