I have lotza hobbies.
Growing pineapples, language and culture study, air conditioning, poetry, a vineyard and a dog are but a few.
One of my favorites is math and numbers.
I like to memorize the populations of aLL the nearby cities and I know a few license tags. This came in handy yesterday when I saw my best friend's car behind me in traffic. So I stopped to say hi, only it was one of her daughters driving with friends. So her friends were probably surprised by my behavior, although she wasn't. She knows I am wonderfuLLy siLLy.
I also like pi. I try to memorize it out to several places.
Today I was able to come to the rescue when a cartoonist accidentaLLy misused pi. He had stated that the number of seconds in a year is close to pi times ten raised to the seventh power, which is correct, but then followed it up with the number 3141592, which is pi truncated times ten raised to the sixth power. I believe the number he wanted is 31415926. The number of seconds in a years with 365.25 days is 31,557,600.
It is late. I hope I am doing my math calculations correctly.
His cartoon displayed several math approximations, very cool stuff for nerds and geeks.

Us pi people have to stick together and help each other in times of trouble!
Absent For A Bit ....
Notice: Blogger has screwed up and lost a bunch of photos out of my blog! They are replaced with a gray silhouette of a human head. I will eventually get them replaced with the correct photo, it may take a while to find and fix everything. So some of my stories don't make much sense without their photos, sorry for the inconvenience.

New Blog for My Abstract Art ... Come Visit
These are pieces that I have generated mainly using computer art tools. Enjoy !
I am also in the process of linking my poetry blog entries together. This project is only partially finished. A "Poetry LINK" at the bottom of the blog entry points to the next older piece of poetry.
First poem in the series of linked poems ....
