1. KEEP FIT
These days we're all that little bit more health conscious, as we seek to ward of
illnesses and the effects of growing older.   

Few of us though want to put a great deal of effort into the process.   

Not for us the long hours of playing squash, or jogging in the park.  But give us a little exercise class, to music perhaps, and that's a different matter entirely.

                                                      2.  INVENT - A - GAME 

Who wants to be a millionaire, Monopoly, the Rubik Cube, and Trivial Pursuits are amongst the most popular games and pastimes of today, and surely none can have disappointed their
creators in the handsome dividends they provided.

3.   PHOTOGRAPHY

junior's birthday party, for parents who profess not to know one end of a camera from another.

when things go wrong.

If made from local stones, such as Whitby jet, even beach pebbles or local shells, so much the better, especially if sold to the local tourist trade.

8.  PARTY CATERING
Almost all of us enjoy house parties, dinner parties, even children's parties.   

Not all of us though, relish the thought of long hours preparing for the event, only to find we're too tired to enjoy the fruits of our labours.   

Someone who can undertake the preliminaries on our behalf, leaving us to enjoy the party free of hassle, must surely be worth paying highly for.

10.  CHILDREN'S ENTERTAINER

'Farmers in his Den' and 'Ring a Ring o Roses', then have you considered doing what I now do - hire a children's entertainer.

 15.  SPECIALISING IN TOYS, DOLLS, TRAINS, ETC
At Antiques Fairs, Flea markets, and Collectors' Fairs, many traders make a good living simply by specializing in those collectors' items sometimes referred to as 'Juvenalia'.

ancestors, and in turn can provide handsome rewards for the discoverer when
