Proverbs 22:6 – Train up a child in the way he should go, even when he is old, he will not depart from it.
‘Frosty The Snowman’ is a well-known figure, but there is another snow-man who deserves increased public recognition. Wilson A. Bentley, better known as The Snowflake Man, was a self-taught scientist who photographed over 5,000 snowflakes in his lifetime in order to study them. This part scientist, part artist, devoted his life to his photography-based research, which helped him determine “no two snowflakes are alike,” a phrase now commonly used and accepted as scientific fact.
