    I think the reason we didn't jump on it this year was that we did it to death last year.

    What, you remember what went on here a year ago? You sure you're over 50?

    Lyrics :
    We're Knights of the Round Table.
    We dance whene'er we're able.
    We do routines and chorus scenes
    With footwork impeccable.
    We dine well here in Camelot.
    We eat ham and jam and spam a lot.

    We're Knights of the Round Table.
    Our shows are formidable,
    But many times we're given rhymes
    That are quite unsingable.
    We're opera mad in Camelot.
    We sing from the diaphragm a lot.

    In war we're tough and able,
    Quite indefatigable.
    Between our quests we sequin vests and impersonate Clark Gable.
    It's a busy life in Camelot.

    I have to push the pram a lot.


    Not mentioned, Maybe Sir Cumference drank himself under that round table ?

    anyhow next year you can carry it out to the 4th decimal place.

    I've had several since 1999 but have settled on my beloved 2001 Litespeed Tuscany. Just ordered a 2015 Cannondale Supersix EVO 105 to replace my "destroyed" CAAD 10 2.

    How did I forget that. And I even rode past the bakery on the bike trail twice.

    I realize it has nothing to do with pi-day, but I needed to get that off my chest since I'll probably forget about it by October.
    I gotta ask, are you a mainframe guy?
    If you don't know the way, you shouldn't be going there.

    Only if I go way back to the college years, as in the days of punch-card coding. I still remember going over hex dumps though so I guess it never leaves you.
