My father, a wise old man, always used to say; .... "If you are asked to make but one toast to any man, toast him this........

" GOOD HEALTH "

All the money in the world is no substitute" . Quite true then! ... and ... Quite true now!

I'm a firm believer that ... "It's nice to be important, but more important to be nice!" ... and take pride in bringing this philosophy into all that I and we do at Ralph Spours Estate Agent.

I look forward to meeting you ..

WEDNESDAY 18th October.

A very pleasant day after all the winds and rain from Ophelia.   It was my day off so I decided a little jaunt to Lancaster.  A city I have not been to for such a long time.  Went on the train of course,  a mere £6.20 return.  Spectacular views over Morecambe Bay with the sun shimmering on the high tide.  Wonderful.  Had a nice wander around the city and a tasty Chinese lunch and a half of Guinness at the John of Gaunt.    Visited the Castle,  and was most impressed.  Back home on the 3.31.  Another pleasant ride.  Out at 9 to meet up with friends and enjoyed Billy Scott at the Capitola!

TUESDAY 17th October.

A wild and windy day.  Some rain too.  It's the tail end of Hurricane Ophelia and this  area has been lucky that we have been largely out of the main track.  Nevertheless we have had some damage and,  no doubt,  the roofing  boys will be clapping their hands?  The First AGM of the UCE  ( Ulverston Community Enterprises)  was held in the Coro Supper Room.  It was very well  attended and the room was full to capacity.  The presentation was excellent and we were all treated to tea/coffee,  a glass of wine and cake to celebrate their first full year.  The Report was well produced and it all bodes well for future years.

MONDAY 16th October.

A wild and windy day.  Hurricane Ophelia is here,  with winds of around 60mph causing damage to property and taking the roof off the football ground at Barrow!   The sky was distinctly red as the winds had brought sand and dust from the Sahara and it stayed dark until 11 or so.  The winds are likely to continue for another day or so there will be lots of flooding and debris on the roads and especially the country lanes.  SO DRIVE WITH EXTRA CAUTION!    It was the Ulverston Carnival Presentation Night at the Avanti Capitola at 7.  There was a good turnout  and the trophies were presented by our delightful Carnival Queen and her Ladies in Waiting.   The 5 Charities were  presented with cheques of £500 each!   How about that?






The Lake District weather as it really happens .. !


A bit cloudy but remaining mild.

Racing tips from Ralph Spours


Straight from the horses mouth :

Date :THURSDAY 19th October 2017


NO Tips for today.

Good Luck and only put on what you are prepared to LOSE!

Remember, when the fun stops, STOP!

Good Luck and be Cautious!  Enjoy your racing!

Remember what I have always said.  It is all just for a bit of fun. 

BE ASSURED, YOU WILL LOSE  AND THE BOOKIES WILL WIN IN THE LONG RUN! 

If you WIN the Bookies are only LENDING you the dosh.  They will get it back.  Certain!


 





BEWARE!!


Remember that if you win, that the Bookie is just LENDING you the dosh!  HE WILL GET IT BACK!


Remember to only bet what you can afford to lose, as its all just for a bit of fun.  The Bookies win in the end!  

If you win,  it is only ON LOAN to you from the bookies.  THEY WILL GET IT BACK!

Have you ever wondered how bookies  have wives dripping in gold jewellery, manage to live in classy houses and drive flashy cars?  Just think about it for a moment or two.  You will soon figure it out!

Good Luck!
