When you hear the words “diameter tape measure,” you probably think of contractors and other people who work closely with pipes. But today let’s try to expand your mind and think outside the box. Today is National Meatball Day, and if I’m not mistaken, meatballs are also spheres that have a diameter. So today, whip out your diameter tape measure, wipe the sauce off your meatballs, and see if you can measure the diameter of your yummy meal!
Although we are now in the last days of February, let’s not forget what a great month it was. February is the last month of winter, and I’m sure you’re excited to see that spring is just around the corner. February is also National Canned Food Month – a hobby that many people have been focusing on lately to prepare for any possible food shortages. Did you know . . . You can find the volume of a jar by using a pipe diameter tape measure. Volume = πr2h Once you find the diameter of the jar’s base with your pipe diameter tape measure, you then divide that number by 2 and you get your radius (r).
No one can say no to a delicious homemade pie. Whether it’s apple, coconut cream, or pumpkin, a slice of fresh pie just hits the spot. Today is National Cherry Pie Day, so have that be your flavor of choice just for today. Did you know . . . Before you slice into your cherry pie, you can grab your pipe diameter tape measure and calculate the diameter of this baked good!
Going to the fair is so much fun for kids and adults alike. Rides, games, and junk food make for an exciting day. What is your favorite thing to do at the fair? – Eat funnel cakes – Having a try at winning a stuffed animal – Riding the ferris wheel (did you know that if you bring your Lufkin tape measure you might be able to find out the diameter of it? Okay, that would need to be a super-long tape measure, but it’s worth a shot!)
Sure, you can measure completely normal and expected items with a diameter tape measure: pipes, trees, poles, etc. But how about we get a little crazy today and think of bizarre things that we can measure. – water bottles – your leg – tater tots (it’s National Tater Tot Day!)
With only 4 days left until Christmas, I am sure many of you have been to countless holiday parties with coworkers and friends. Did any of these parties include a White Elephant gift exchange? If you’re anything like me, these gift exchanges make me uncomfortable. No one is shopping for anyone in particular, so none of the gifts are personal. Odds are, you have received a few gifts from these parties that you would rather, well… re-gift. Today is National Re-Gifting Day, a perfect time to re-wrap those less-than-desired gifts you’ve received this month, and give them to someone who will really appreciate them. But the one gift you’ve received that I know you won’t re-gift is the tried-and-true diameter tape measure. It’s too good to give away!
Making gingerbread houses is a fun pastime in many households during the holiday season. They are not known for being easy to make, but if you have the patience and can get it right, they are beautiful. For the most part, gingerbread houses that are made during the holiday season are square or rectangular. But perhaps think outside the box this time and make a cylindrical one. A pipe diameter tape measure will be key to measuring your festive house, and maybe you can even invent a new holiday game: Guess the diameter of the gingerbread house!
It’s the age-old question: should Daylight Savings be permanent or not? Sure, we get to have an extra hour of sleep this Sunday, but that also comes with an earlier sunset. Having the sun set before dinnertime is a little silly, right?
What if a diameter tape measure could solve this problem? To be honest, it probably wouldn’t help at all, but it would be a nice promotional gift to your customers.
Are you itching for a promotion or a raise? Usually hard work pays off, but when it doesn’t, you can always resort to a little harmless bribery, right? Okay, maybe that is not the best route to take in the business world, but a kind gesture does go a long way. Today is National Boss’s Day, so go ahead and give your boss a little gift to show your appreciation. Need ideas? Here are a few! – a pipe diameter tape measure with “World’s Best Boss” printed on it – gift card to his/her favorite coffee shop – a thoughtful basket filled with snacks & treats
