Shrove Tuesday

I see things don't change much reading Anton Chekhov's wonderful short story, Shrove Tuesday.  I was helping my daughter with math this morning after making her pancakes.  Pancakes are the traditional fare on the eve of the Lenten fast throughout Russia and Eastern Europe.  Chekhov celebrates the occasion in an amusing way through Pavel Vasilitch.
