To prove I'm still around, I figure this is a good reason to post.... since I'm not racing yet, and hardly riding... I need something.
I ride often with the "Square Wheels" cycling club... so why does that matter? Today on the way in to work, (DRIVING A CAR!!!) I heard that today is a square root day... and then I got the message from Abaddonny
Square root day is a humorous holiday celebrated on dates where the day and the month are both the square root of the last two digits in the current year. For example, the last square root day was March 3, 2009 (3/3/09), and the next square root day will be April 4, 2016 (4/4/16). The final square root day of the century will occur on September 9, 2081. Each century it is the same nine dates that are Square root days.
Ron Gordon, a Redwood City, California high school teacher, first created the day for 9/9/81. Gordon is the official public relations person and sends news releases to world media outlets. In addition, his daughter has got in on the act and set up a Facebook page for people to share how they were celebrating the day.
One suggested way of celebrating the holiday is by eating square radishes, or other root vegetables cut into shapes with square cross sections.

So why doesn't the google logo represent something on this? I mean that's how I found out that Jackson Pollock's Birthday was on January 28.
Don't forget Pi day is a week from Saturday (3.14) ... so go eat PI. Gain weight, so I can keep up when we ride together.
Oh for some decent weather during some free time so I can work this stuff off on the bike...
