The last Eggshelland

Ron and Betty Manolio have been commemorating Easter and entertaining the community with Eggshelland since 1957.

Ron Manolio passed away last year so Betty and the kids and grandkids decided there should be one last Eggshelland as a tribute to Ron and to thank the community.  Thank you Ron and Betty.

Baseball Puzzle

Here's a puzzle to get you in the mood for the upcoming baseball season.

Let's say that for the first half of the baseball season, Nick Swisher hits for a higher batting average than Asdrubal Cabrera. During the second half of the season, Swisher again hits for a higher average than Cabrera.

Is it possible for Cabrera to have a higher average for the season as a whole?

It sure is.

The Great Lakes Geek will post a solution in a few days but think about it first. If you know how it could happen, leave a comment.

Happy Pi Day

We all know that Pi is the mathematical constant that is the ratio of the circumference of a circle to it's diameter.  Pi is irrational and its decimal representation goes on forever and never settles into a repeating pattern.

Of course, Pi begins with 3.14159... so March 14 or 3-14 is celebrated as Pi Day.
