  1.  Good Morning, Everyone…. 𝞹 WONDERING…PI? 𝞹

    🎶 You went away and left me misery…(I’m in PIECES, bits and PIECES)…And that’s the way it’ll always be…- “Bits and Pieces” – The Dave Clark Five 1964 https://tinyurl.com/4n6wfdd8

    𝞹 If Math is not of interest, this puzzle won’t strike a chord,
    But 3.14159 today we find on board…
    I always had an ALIBI when it came down to Math…
    There definitely wasn’t love lost there…so not my chosen path…
    I’d CLOAK myself in courses that would help bring words to life,
    Took languages to learn word roots…but Math? Nothing but strife…
    At times things did get FEISTY, ‘cause it definitely did APPEAR,
    That I might fail at numbers…they just weren’t in my sphere
    So were it me in this here shop, when this guy did stop by?
    I doubt I’d get a”round” to measure his PIECE OF THE “Pi”! 𝞹

    So…Luckily for me, there’s no calculating that needs be done with our anagrams this morning. It’s SPLIT right down the middle. We’ve seen BILIA last in 2019, and EARPAP back in 2015. And it was SIYETF that CUT INTO the Early Birds playing time. I’m sure I’ve heard enough “Fiesta” to last me a lifetime…And after the THIRD or fourth time, all I could say was…”hAAAy…CUT IT out with the word”…pun intended. But as for our solve? We all CUT right to the PASTE…I mean chase…Between the dialogue, “In thirds”…”Square the radius and multiply…etc, etc”…and the 3.141 not only QUOTED there but repeated in our question…plus location, location, location…and not to mention those quotation marks…well, this one was a PIECE OF (THE) Cake…I mean PI! https://tinyurl.com/yc6bewzs

    Ok. A bakery. And for some SEASON a grumpy looking customer who’s buying five pies. Luckily though, our female baker appears to be a very SWEET woman, and she takes his slightly absurd request to have the pumpkin one sliced into THIRDS with(out) a grain of fault. I guess she’s used to dealing with CUT-UPs such as he…and simply takes the MEASURE of the man into consideration. Me? I doubt I’d be humming “SLICE And Easy Does It”… https://tinyurl.com/568k4wy3

    So…There you have it Folks…Done. Have a good one. Be well, stay safe…And this puzzle has me thinking of a friend of mine who foolishly had a 𝛑 tattoo put onto his cheek….I told him it was such an IRRATIONAL decision… 𝛑🙋🏻‍♀️


  2. 🥧 Snatching a PIECE OF THE PIE, the FEISTY little boy, used to using a CLOAK of lies to get his way, thought of an ALIBI to make it APPEAR it wasn’t he who took it…🥧

    🙇🏻‍♂️ There was no way to hide it, and he had no ALIBI,
    He figured he’d get busted…then he heard his Mother’s cry…
    “I should have put a CLOAK ‘round it…to keep you boys at bay,
    You’ve gotten past what’s FEISTY…and you’ve ruined my whole display…
    I can’t APPEAR in public now…” she said with a deep sigh….
    And he realized how wrong he was to grab….PIECE OF THE PIE…🙇🏻‍♂️

  3. Good thirsty-Thursday ! It should have been yesterdays jumble on thirsty-Thursday for a drink of Spring Water ! Ok , the jumble answer was awesome ! As soon as I saw the phrase that had 3.141 in it , because I studied electronics and accounting , PI came right out ! Then the rest of the PIECE was there ! Anybody who took accounting or electronics would see that right away ! Man , it brought back memories for a PIECE OF The “PI” ! I had two anagrams that were FEISTY and it did APPEAR that I had Prepare first and the second anagram was not my ALIBI ! My wife Suzie helped me and she got ALIBI and threw me a cover and said here put this CLOAK on ! Everyone have a great thirsty Thursday ! Oh and great song Angela ! And I loved the picture of the pie with the “PI” emblem on it !!!

    • Good Morning, Jim. Tk you. Wishing you a great Thursday too. 🥧🙋🏻‍♀️

  4. Pretty obvious solution for today and an always welcome blind solve. Anagrams posed no problems…so a good day in Jumbleland. Good Blast from the past song, Angela, which really got me rockin’ this morning. For Thirsty Thursday, I think I’ll take another cup of coffee !! On to TGIF.

  5. Like Jim, I had a problem with EARPAP (which seems like it could be a weird word all itself) and saw Rapper instead of Appear. Somehow still got the puzzle with a semi-blind solve. Rain/light snow falling to usher out March on the Great Plains. Blue skies ahead. It seems like Angela is back in full form and Dave Clark Five tunes are always welcome. Now to work.

    • I know you won’t be alone with seeing Rapper, OO, two of my cousins did so too. And unfortunately I’m still not myself…but I’m trying…Have a good one. 🥧🙋🏻‍♀️

  6. Does it bother anybody that she says to square the radius and multiply by “Pi”? That will calculate the area of the pie, but what is needed is the circumference, so double the radius or even better measure the diameter directly, the multiply diameter by pi.. Then measure 1/3 of the result along the circumference to determine the location of the three cuts. Knowing the area doesn’t help.

    • I certainly agree with that. Math in the popular media frequently gets mangled. Another place where the Jumble is off is when they say 3.141 is a piece of the pi. That number is a good approximation to pi, so to me that is the entire pi, not just a piece of it. Or maybe technically it is a piece, because pi is 3.14159265…, meaning that the piece is 3.141/3.14159265… or 99.981% of the pi. That’s a pretty huge piece, and everyone else gets only 0.018% of the pi.

    • Sharon…God knows there’s a litany of things that are bothering me right now, but as I’ve mentioned, I hardly know enough to speak on this, so I’m forced to plead the fifth…It’s all Greek to me! 𝞹 🤷🏻‍♀️

  7. I’m with Sharon. I was confused at how knowing the area of the pie was going to help in cutting the pie into thirds! 🙂 But it was a fun — and easy — Jumble regardless. Nice song, Angela. I think I saw the Dave Clark Five in concert as a young kid.

    • Tks, Brad. And as I told Sharon…this is soooo not my AREA of expertise! 𝞹🙋🏻‍♀️

  8. Good morning. Easy Thursday jumble. Almost a blind solve. Loved the answer as well as Angela’s song choice. I’ll go out on a limb and say I’m glad you’re feeling better. Until tomorrow stay well and stay safe.

    • Good Morning, Paul. Glad you enjoyed it, and thanks for asking…I’m trying. Hope you’re well and staying safe out there. 🥧🙋🏻‍♀️

    • This was the easiest Thursday jumble. I had to check it was not Monday today!
      I’m glad to to see that you’re back to be our faithful Angela!
      Take care…

  9. I’m going to declare hereby
    That to fairly divide a pie
    To the circumference from the centre
    The knife first must enter
    Then slice it as straight as a die.

    You want to be equal and fair
    When a pie you’re going to share?
    Then just use your eye
    Before you give it a try
    Don’t make it a complex affair.

    And if anyone tries to protest
    That they haven’t been given the best
    That it’s not the right measure
    And gives them no pleasure
    Tell them this is NOT a math test!

    Hope you’re well and truly better Angela. We’re thinking of you! Get well soon!

    As for math, that wasn’t what has made the art of the pie so elusive for me. It was the making of the crust. I finally decided that pi was easier than pie.

  10. 🥧 When it comes down to pie vs pi,
    There’s the one thing no one can deny…
    If you’ve chosen the measure,
    Then you’ve passed on the treasure…
    That only baked goods can supply! 🥧

    𝞹 Whether David or Jeff here have erred,
    I’m not sure ‘cause to me it’s absurd…
    It’s a puzzle for words,
    (And in this place some curds)…
    But it looks like a pot has been stirred! 𝞹

    🤷🏻‍♀️ The customer that we see here,
    Hardly one that you’d easily endear…
    Standing there with a scowl,
    In a mood… looking foul…
    But his problem…it just isn’t clear! 🤷🏻‍♀️

    • Good POINT…But ours is not to question why…David chose to date his Pi! 🥧🙋🏻‍♀️

  11. Not even Mar 22 and we have a Pi related puzzle.Alibi and appear gave me reason to pause,but the cartoon was a quick near blind solve.

    • Hi Prof…I know I’m still feeling pretty foggy, but I’m not following your March 22nd reference. And have you seen Sharon’s comment? If anyone can address it, it’s you! 🤷🏻‍♀️

    • God bless, Eleanor! You’re an inspiration! Be well and stay safe! 🥧🙋🏻‍♀️

  12. Jumble anagrams and cartoon answer were a piece of cake this morning. Avoiding all debates on the pi of pie. Have a good one all!
