As is traditional for this day, I made a couple of French silk pies. Here they are, with the captions to decipher the mathematical equations or expressions which are both equal to pi…




<Solve the equation> sin(x) = 0 <on the interval> [1,4]

But this year, I participated as a willing “victim” in the fundraiser “Pie A Professor!”


I made sure to remove my glasses…


At least it was tasty whipped cream!

Let light increase

Sun setting.

The day ends.

It has gotten brighter.

As spring approaches, dusk delays.

At some point, eighteen hundred hours.

That appointed hour will become merely dusky.

Throwback horizons choose to insert themselves on here.

Hopefully it does not interfere with Sue’s photo challenge!


Self-credit for photo (and that car did not hit me)

This photo, from precisely two years ago, precariously/safely prepared.

But today, further east than that photo, eighteen hundred brought dusk.

Merely thirteen days remain until eighteen hundred hours are certainly light here.

Granted, fortnight minus one could harbour all complaints about that infernal lost hour!

You probably notice the structure of this post—but short words make staircases preposterous!

Fifteen risers high, advancing time, and awkward sentences built during times of multipurpose transition—GO!
