A video of some short experiments you can use to entertain your children.
They are all easy. I would have redone the egg in glass one but didn't have another toilet roll tube.
A video of a smudged on my lense, but if you look carefully you can see Ravenhead Greenway in the background.
If you want to cycle, or take your dog for a long walk, then try Ravenhead Greenway.
Appologies for the quality, not only am I not the best filmist, but my recorder had not overdubbed the Titan the robot part of the tape properly so that is the odd bits in the video.
Keep a look out for St.Helens Rangers guided walks to Billinge, they are really worth going on and they are free.

Looking for somewhere nice to eat out. Take a look at some of the food reviews by Miss JC and myself, here.
Nice restaurants in St.Helens. We ate in many more, but these are the reviews. We will do more one day.
St.Helens, is a town , in the North West of England, in the county of Merseyside. St.Helens has a population of around 175000 people according to the government census.
Although St.Helens is well situated, in terms of access for road and rail, with easy access to motorways and two rail lines, there is little incentive for large high tech business to move to St.Helens, which is a great pity as the great transport infrastructure and the large number of parks and open spaces, in and around St.Helens, would make St.Helens an ideal place
for IT and other high tech businesses to site their business. The old triplex factory site, for example, would have been ideal for the likes of Google, having both Taylor Park and Eccleston Mere right next door, as well as a good supply of houses nearby.
There are many places in and around the St.Helens area suitable for high tech business to locate and there are many people in St.Helens with the qualifications needed by these business. St.Helens, being so close to two major cities is also close enough to travel into for any external workforce needed.
St.Helens is situated between Liverpool and Manchester, though closer to Liverpool. There is a Theatre called St.Helens Theatre Royal, a large Technical College, a very good Transport Museum, an excellent glass Museum and exhibition centre called St.Helens World of Glass, The Smithy Heritage Centre and Museum, a few Hotels, a huge new Rugby stadium for the local Saints Rugby team, an older Rugby ground for the Liverpool St.Helens Rugby Union club (one of the oldest in the world), Golf clubs, some restaurants (mainly Chinese or Indian), many bars and pubs and many other visitor attractions such as the parks and open spaces and two themed Farms.
With St.Helens being very close to Wigan, Widnes, Prescot, Warrington, Liverpool and Ormskirk, you do not have to travel too far to find something to do.
There are many historic facts and many famous people having been born or Lived in St.Helens.
