Welcome one and all - I am pleased to offer an obligation free, and above all personal service to each of my valued customers.

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........


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 ..

FRIDAY 26th May.

What a gorgeous day! 24f and clear blue skies. Has summer really arrived? It certainly is lovely so I used the open-topped Merc for my jobs today. Made sure that I wore a cap to save my shiny head from getting sizzled!  It's still a lovely car to drive.  35 years old now and still is a head-turner.  Still not broken through the 67thousand mile marker on the speedo.  And V8's always have that very distinctive "rumble".  Delicious.  Out for Early Doors.  And there were crowds out in town enjoying the special atmosphere that Ulverston has.  How lucky I am that I live,  and work,  in such a place on God's earth?

Thursday 25th May.

I must apologise to my legions of blog-readers for the absence of my blog for the last couple of days but my Telephone and Broadband have been "down" since 10 on Wednesday.  Finally respired today so I'm trying to catch up as best I can.  The world is still reeling from the Manchester Atrocity.  What kind of sickness can justify the indiscriminate murdering of innocent children?  This time the whole WORLD is furious about it and the action of these so called martyrs  will do nothing to divide society.  We must live in peace regardless of any "faith"  What kind of faith justifies such an atrocity?

The Lake District weather as it really happens .. !

Very warm and rather humid. Thunderstorms forecast midday.

St Leger 2016.

Click on and be amazed. Watch my selection triumph!


WOW!!!  Harbour Law triumphed at a price of 33/1 and I had a "lump" on it!!  Picked up a nice pile of £20's. Bingo!

 Hope you followed my example?


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

Remember, when the fun stops, STOP!

Good Luck and be Cautious!  Enjoy racing!

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




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!
