Looking out at the snow i recalled one of the joys of childhood the first snow of winter rushing out to build a snowman starting with a fist sized lump as you rolled it got bigger and bigger rolling it downhill its own momentum enabled it to grow and grow

Until it all got just a bit too big and crumbled under its own weight as it refused to be guided any more.

But in a similar vein I was recalling to my overseas wife how we used to have slides in the playground, carefully nurtured and glazed with water - big slide for the big boys and little slides for the younger kids. And if trying to go too fast, or failing to negotiate a bit of irregularity, one ended up flat on one's face.

Yes, all valuable lessons.
