Calendar: Week of February 12

Here's a look at the week ahead on our "Sunday Morning" Calendar:

      
On Monday, actor Mandy Patinkin ("Homeland") will be honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

       
Tuesday is Shrove Tuesday (or Fat Tuesday, if you will), a day for Mardi Gras celebrations … and pancakes.

      
Wednesday this year does double duty -- as both Ash Wednesday, the first day of Lent; and as St. Valentine's Day, the traditional day for hearts and flowers.
