My e-cigs came in today. Hopefully I will now be able to satisfy my oral fixation with something other than.....food.

Today I am very happy with food, drink and the company I am keeping.
Oh, and the marvel that is John Barrowman of course.

Sigh.

It's snowing and I love the snow. I hope it snows 6"-8". Rarely do we get that so this would be a great treat for us.

I also had a job interview recently and I think it went very well. I hope to hear positive news soon.

You can keep the snow, unless it causes aforementioned closings, but good luck on the job!

My new semester starts today. I'm doing "History of Art: Survey I" book/website stuff right now. 3 semesters from now I'll have my AA degree and Step 1 of The Plan™ is complete.

I realized this morning while I was eating breakfast that if you know that the square root of a number, a, is b, the square root of (a+2) is very close to (b+1/b).

For example, the square root of 100 is 10, so the square root of 102 is approximately 10 + 1/10 (10.1 squared is 102.01).

Also, the square root of (a+1) is very close to (b + 1/(2*b)). -> The square root of 101 is approximately (10 + 1/20) = 10.05.

This makes it easy to calculate square roots for numbers close to known squares.

This is less accurate for small numbers, the error being (1/b) squared in the first case and 1/(4b^2) in the second case.
