Pi Day!
Thursday, March 14, 2013

It's Pi day! That glorious and irrational holiday we celebrate by eating pie and doing math! Today I'm having a slice of Claim Jumper Turtle Pie, which is quite delicious.

Today's math challenge in honor of Pi day:

What is the duration of a piece of music in 4/4 time, having 118 measures, when played at a steady tempo of 96 beats per minute? Round to the nearest second.

4 min, 55 seconds. That's a lot of notes.
3-14-13, it's the same forward and backward, another palindrome!

We have not stopped praying for you and asking God to fill you with the knowledge of His will through all spiritual wisdom and understanding.  And we pray this in order that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and may please Him in every way; bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God, being strengthened with all power according to His glorious might so that you may have great endurance and patience, joyfully giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of the saints in the kingdom of light.
