Numbers (part 1) - The Pi Day of the Century pie
March 14, 2015 at the time of 9:26 AM and 53 seconds will be a day and a moment that will not be repeated for another century.

3.14.15  9:26:53 

And March 14, or 3/14, has been known as Pi Day, as the irrational number, Pi, is ... you guessed it:
3.141592653 ... 

Where was this holiday when I was a kid?

Pi Day celebration was founded by Larry Shaw and it was first held in 1988 at the San Francisco Exploratorium.  The staff and the public marched about the circular space, then they ate fruit pies.  It also shares the date of March 14 with Albert Einstein's birthday.  [reference:]

But for this once in a century event:

*  Venders are ready for it.

Such as:  Pi Day T Shirts, Shirts & Tees | Custom Pi Day Clothing

* Teachers have a teachable moment for their students.

Such as:  How to Celebrate Pi Day in Your Classroom | Edutopia

*  Bakers are in on it, too.

Such as:  Celebrate Pi Day! March 14, 2015 | American Pie Council

And what better tribute to this irrational number than

* Calculating Pi with Pie:

And  may we have our Pi and eat it, too.  So on this delicious note, I introduce another thread -


And may the number of Numbers multiply in this new series.
