There is, actually. Have a look at Paul Halmos' nice little book, or
the three volume Handbook of Boolean Algebras (ed. J.D. Monk) for a
more complete picture.

The equational theory ("arithmetic") of BAs is not that exciting,
for sure. But see http://www-unix.mcs.anl.gov/~mccune/papers/robbins/
where a (computer aided) solution to a 60 years old problem is
reported.
