Hey presto!

 "tri" means "3" and "angle" means ... "angle!". That was our friend from Math's Mansion, an educational video discussing right-angled, scalene, and obtuse triangles...
Here at the crib on the eve of the first of our two days off due to student illnesses...what to do with all the time off?...? ... Mild and damp tonight and no stars to be seen..the Orionid meteor shower is set to go and i don't know if we'll be able to catch it ... BUT, my beloved landlord just brought me a plate of spaghetti which we teamed up on to create last night....mooooozerella on top and lots of garlic and tomatos and peppers from the garden ... yumm yumm yumm! This guy doesn't just cook, he CREATES! That's great it starts with an earthquake...the only, and i mean only way this could be better would be if it had mushrooms in it...Dodgers, Phillies, Halos Yankees...who cares?!? Tigers should be there and could have done something this time (bitter? maybe...) in the post-season. dammitall mediocre leading this mediocre division all season and letting somebody beat them out at the end team...
Survivor 19 is providing me with late-mid-week joy on thursdays...the arrogant cartoon character who thinks he's won it, the chunky older girl with the mullet who 'doesn't fit in' with her "90210" tribe-mates, the old guy with long hair who can make a fire when the 'leader' can't... i'm hooked though, and look forward to this week's episode.
Here's to-day's math's problem:
Give the domain over which 3x squared -12x + 5 is increasing.
Oh yeah.
