Yippee “PI” yay day!!

Today is “pi day”, and was established by American math geeks to honour the mathematical constant pi.  As you may recall from those long distant geometry lessons, Pi is the ratio of the circumference of a circle as against its diameter.  No matter the size of the circle, pi is always the same!
