# Happy Square Root Day

March 3, 2009

Square Root Day occurs only nine times per century, and one of them is today: 3/3/09. You might have been busy celebrating New Year’s Day on the first Square Root Day of the century: 1/1/01, and you might have been distracted by Groundhog Day on 2/2/04, but make sure you don’t miss this one, or you’ll have to wait another 7 years until the next one on 4/4/16. 🙂

Since we won’t be in school for Pi Day (3/14), which falls on a Saturday this year, you might want to mention this one to your classes, if you read about it in time.

Happy Square Root Day!

p.s. This was post 100 for this blog. I was going to add this information to the actual post until I noticed that the word count for the post was sitting at exactly 100 words!

Congratulations on your 100th post! I like how you kept that announcement in the comments to preserve the word count.

Cool observation:) It’s pity it is a bit to late to celebrate now when I found this post 🙂

You covered Square Root Day (3/3/9)–we’re back with another: Sunday is the (soft) deadline for entries for the Story Day Contest (for “ones upon a day”—1/11/11—can email to you a page detailing this—hope you can use it. After this, we’re hibernating until the next Odd Day (7/9/11) thanks for your interest. regards, ron cell (650) 787-7381 home (650) 364-0652
