Happy Square Root Day!

Today's date is 3/3/09. The day and the month are both the square root of the last two digits in the year. Ron Gordon, a California high school teacher, promoted these sort of dates as Square Root Days. The festivities include square dancing, drinking root beer, eating square radishes, or other root vegetables cut into shapes with square cross sections and also... well that's it. So party on! The next Square Root Day isn't until 4/4/16.

Let me guess -- we celebrate by eating pie?!

Apparently March is the month for nerds. Did you know that today, March 4, is Grammar Day??? Be sure to speak well today!
