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 ..

MONDAY 26th September.

A dull and chilly Monday morning.  Remember the song?  I Hate Monday's ?  Nevertheless I got on very well and had a good day to myself one way and another.  Went for tea at Clare's.  Marissa is due home form her 6 weeks in Vietnam and Bangkok on Saturday!  Then  she'll have to set about looking for  job now that she has graduated and had her well-earned break.  I picked the right team again to win UC though they were well behind till nearly half way.  Caught up with all my ironing and watched a dvd of The Likely Lads.  Great fun!

SUNDAY 25th September.

Had a bit of a lie-in till 9 or so and then followed my Sunday Morning Routine and decided that I should polish the Jag.  So I did and she looks wonderful.  Sat out in the late summer sunshine and read the papers and had a shot at the crossword  ( with some success).  Joined my friends for Cocktails and it was like "old times" as 14 of us were there.  The holiday season seems to be over.  WE "occupied" the corner and there was much fun and friendly banter.  A very nice conclusion to a lovely weekend.

SATURDAY 24th September

Such a busy day I had to watch my racing on Channel 4+1.  Didn't even have time to put my little bets on.  Wish I had because one of them came in at 25/1.Ooooh! I  decided to treat myself,  nonetheless,  and bought a large steak and cooked it to perfection .  Enjoyed it with all the trimmings and surprised myself that I was able to eat every morsel.  I enjoyed my evening in, warm and cosy.  Good music and the papers.  And a wee dram.






The Lake District weather as it really happens .. !


Overcast and light rain. Ugh!

Racing tips from Ralph Spours


Straight from the horses mouth :

Date :TUESDAY 27th September 2016


NONE for today

For SATURDAY;

Only ONE winner from 3 selections.  Sorry!

Good Luck!

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. 

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!
