Curve fitting

Who uses it: Statisticians
What it means: Creating a graphic curve from data that might not necessarily form a natural curve, in order to demonstrate a trend. Regression analysis allows some approximation in order to make a curve smooth.
How you can use it: When rounding up or down.

I got no work done this weekend -- including Friday afternoon and most of yesterday -- and now I have to make up for my vacation time. It's a bright sunny day here in central Maine, and the birds are chirping, and Dizzy will get the season's first application of Frontline later today.

Tomorrow's post will be longer...
