Why Pancakes on Tuesdays

#pancakeday is a popular topic on Twitter right now.
In the Christian Anglican calendar, today is Shrove Tuesday also known as Pancake Day. It is customary to eat pancakes on the day preceding Lent because they were a way to use up rich foodstuffs (such as eggs, milk, and sugar) before the 40 day fast. (Feb. 16)

So that's the world news version apparently, but ours began with Bruce listening to Ricky Gervais podcasts and was inspired by Karl Pilkington talking about Pancake Tuesday.  You'll have to ask him to get the fun details and hear how great Karl is since he's a big fan.

As for Pancake Tuesday updates, we are taking a hiatus to spend time at the Big Sky Doc Film Fest and to travel a bit.  Ciao!
