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 22nd May 2015.

A nice busy day but the weather was a bit gruesome.  Had a job over at Foxfield and the mist going over Kirkby Fell was dreadful.  Even in the valley the mist spoiled the views.  Nevertheless,  I got on well.  The weather though for the weekend is forecast as being rather good.  So I am sure you will all be  pleased with that?   Out for Early Doors on Black-Eye Friday.  Crowds in town and I met up with lots of lovely friends and acquaintances.  Had a lovely evening out. 


THURSDAY 21st May 2015.

A pleasant enough morning but remaining chilly. Should be a lot more pleasant this time of year. It's Market Day and there were lots and lots of good folk in town. A very pleasant ambience. Got on ok and worked right through till about 6.45. It's Bank Holiday Weekend so it's Black-Eye Friday and Super Sunday to look forward to Racing at Cartmel on Saturday,  Monday and Wednesday,  and the Scarecrows are on display at Scales on Sunday.  SO a busy few days in prospect.  The Quiz was good and Sarah had the chance to win the money.  She answered 1956.  The answer was 1955.  Oooooh!

WEDNESDAY 20th May 2015.

Another overcast and chilly day.  What is going on with the weather.  Where are all the "  Global Warming" brigade now?.  Not here!    As it was Wednesday I try and take some time off and I decided a day out in Preston on the train.  So I caught the 10.28 and had a perfectly pleasant day in the city and a rather nice Italian lunch.  And a LARGE glass of white to go with it.  .  Home  for just before 5,  sufficient time to get prepped for another meeting of the Carnival Committee.  The meeting went extremely well and the committee now is very strong and this will ensure that this year the Parade will be bigger and better than ever.  It is to be called the ULVERSTON HOSPICE CARNIVAL with all the proceeds going to St Mary's Hospice. 

The Lake District weather as it really happens .. !

A beautifully sunny morning.

Racing tips from Ralph Spours

Straight from the horses mouth :

Date :SATURDASY 23rd May 2015.

SATURDAY; Only 3 selections as follows; 


 1.45.  Grandeur.  2.20.  Eye of the Storm.  5.15.  Privileged.

Good Luck!  Be careful!  Bet responsibly!

The Bookies will win eventually!  Look what happened to Annie Power at Cheltenham!  Odds on favourite ( 1/2 ).  Couldn't lose!  5 lengths ahead of the field and FELL at the last! The Bookies  went home with "Bulging Satchels" and that was only the First Day of 4. If you are lucky enough to win,  just remember 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!
