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 23rd March

Very windy but a bit milder.  A tree has come down on the A590 near to Rusland Pool  and the Police are  controlling the traffic as the tree is removed.  No great hold up ,  just a couple of minutes or so.  It was the LAST quiz at the Rose last night and THERE IS NO QUIZ  next Thursday as it is Maundy Thursday.  The next quiz will be at the totally refurbished Farmers on Thursday 5th April.  BE THERE!!!  The grand  re-opening of the Farmers is on MONDAY 26th at 9am.  Very exciting to see just what a fabulous job they have done.

THURSDAY 22nd March.

A chilly day and I felt it as I attended the Spring Equinox ceremony at the Stone Circle on Birkrigg.  So it's officially SPRING now and the hour gets altered this weekend so don't forget  ( Spring forward.....).  Had a report to compose  across in the Whicham Valley and what a  very pleasant ride it was a over there as I saw lots of wild Daffodils,  Snowdrops and Crocus.  Always a very beautiful sight. I know I go on a bit about how wonderful this part of the world it is but I do it with clear justification! 

The Lake District weather as it really happens .. !

Vey windy but milder.

If you do WIN, be warned that the Bookies are only LENDING you the dosh.  They will get it back.  That's a Racing Certainty!


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