Its Pi Day 2015!

Pi image cour­tesy: Pierce Col­lege

 As you might have read Sat­ur­day com­ing  (March 14) is a spe­cial day for all math nerds.  Its nation­al pi day. This year is spe­cial since the date coin­cides with the first five num­bers of pi, 3/14/15.  Maybe its an omen.……

Takes me way back to my first degree in maths & physics where believe it not many a day was spent pon­der­ing this math­e­mat­i­cal won­der.  Ah heady days indeed.

Enough nos­tal­gia, got to back to work now.

Veggie Cooking Class

Last week­end the four of (Chris, Michelle, Rita and Stephen) took a veg­e­tar­i­an cook­ery class at Sur La Table in Sug­ar Land.  It was a blast espe­cial­ly since we were the only par­tic­i­pants and had a pri­vate les­son with the chef.

The best part of the course was we had to eat what we cooked dur­ing the 2.5 hours or so.  What fun!
