Slowly melting in a field adjacent to the public bridleway which links Timber Lane to Wilden Lane.

On the subject of snowpeople, some years ago an historian at Birmingham University, who had been studying the cultural meaning of snowmen for some time, wrote a 15 page report, which urged everyone to build more inclusive snowpeople. In the author's opinion, traditional snowmen could be considered sexist and even racist. The final conclusion of the report was that snowmen were simply another symbol of male dominance in society. Unfortunately the report doesn't indicate where the eager would-be builder of non-sexist non-racist snowpeople is to find the necessary selection of assorted shades of snow. A blue one would be quite striking, in my purely personal opinion.
