Tale of Two Food Specials for St. Patrick’s Day

Some holidays/national days lend themselves to food specials and giveaways more than others.

Today is March 14, or 3-14 -- Pi Day. Pi is the equivalent of 3.14159265359, which is a mathematical constant that is the ratio of a circle's circumference to its diameter. It is represented by the Greek letter π, which is pronounced pi.

Happy Birthday Internet!

I saw a story this morning that the Internet is turning 25 today!

The REAL guy who came up with the idea (sorry, Al Gore) wrote the paper on March 12, 1989, about "a proposal to make information sharing possible over computers, using nodes and links to create a web that would eventually stretch worldwide and become the modern internet."

His name? Sir Timothy Berners-Lee.
