Friday night fun. First evict a lizard and then go to a tap music concert in the Redlands Bowl: Rhythm Circus.

Interesting. Florida lizards don't try to bite people (they're a bit smaller).

Here is a puzzle in Euclidean geometry. You have a right angle triangle ABC with hypotenuse BC. Bisect BC at X. How long is AX? And Why? Don't post answers for a day or two... Grading: You pass with a C if you know the length of AX. You grade B if you can prove it using Cartesian geometry. You earn an A if you can find the neat Euclidean proof. Grade D if you have to use a computer/phone!
