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........

" 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 ..

SUNDAY 26th June

UP and about by 9 and followed my usual Sunday Morning Routine but had my breakfast on the Poop Deck whilst listening to Saturday's edition of Pick of the Pops ( iPlayer Radio is marvelous!).  I came over cloudy and by noon it was a bit uncomfortable so I retreated to indoors.  Had a good pop at the GK Crossword and read a lot about the Referendum in the Papers.  It started to rain a little so I was quite content,  cosy and curled up on the sofa.  Out at 5 for Cocktails meeting at the Farmers  where I met up with Andy Reay ( of Sidecars and South Lakes Rock School fame together with his delightful partner Lesley.  Andy kindly volunteered to Sit In The Stocks and raise at least £100!  What a man!  That means I have a full squad of 30 good souls and together we hope to raise THREE TGHOIUSAND POUNDS in 30 minutes.  Come and watch the antics at 11.15 on Carnival Morning.  Then we emigrated to the Hope and then the Rose for the last half.  Once home I was looking forward to watching the film at 9 called  "The Railway Man" with Colin Firth in the lead role.   What a great movie.  catch up on iPlayer.  You will not be disappointed.

SATURDAY 25th June.

A lovely sunny day with clear blue skies and birds singing!  Got on well and didn't finish till after 3.30.  I received some fabulously good news!  My darling Grand Daughter Marissa Flower has achieved a FIRST CLASS HONOURS  from Leeds University in Medicinal Chemistry!!!!  How marvelous is that?  A very proud granddad!   Spent the evening at home with a  mice Chicken Jalfreizi  and a bottle of Ballantyne's watching Glastonbury.  Brilliant!

FRIDAY 24th June.

The decision has been announced and we are OUT of the EU.  For better or worse.  Stop all the rowing and the bad taste an just get buckled down and make Britain Great!  The pound immediately fell very dramatically then by tea time it had recovered fully!  WHO DARES WINS!!   Everyone likes a challenge so let's get on with it!  I woke up around 6 and switched the tv on to find out how things were,  and already by then BREXIT had an unassailable lead.   David Cameron has said he is stepping down  from Prime Minister so who do you think will be taking his place?






The Lake District weather as it really happens .. !


Cool and cloudy.

Good Luck and be Cautious!  Enjoy 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!


 





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!
