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 ..

THURSDAY 27th August.
A lovely sunny day and it's Market Day too. Crowds of good folk in town enjoying a stroll around enjoying themselves. Chatting, buying, drinking and eating. Rather good? Had plenty to do and was able to do a couple of jobs around the close vicinity on the electric trike. Always like riding that machine. Still causes people's heads to turn. Strange machine ridden by a strange man? Good crowd at the Quiz, 21 teams. The Rollover ( 83.75 ) was NOT WON so it will rise to about £110 next week. Some good team names but far to risqué to detail here!
WEDNESDAY 26th AUGUST.
A pleasant day after yet more overnight rain. Windy too. Picked up Lisa and Amber and took then both to the station and there were no tears! Had a lovely few days with them and I have already arranged to go down to Ascot to visit them in October. Had a couple of jobs to do before getting up to the garage for the Merc Sports. Took off to the west coast for a change and thought I would be in time to get F&C form Haverigg. Got there is time but the place was SHUT! Ok! Next stop the King Billy. Shut! Open at 6! Ok! The Miners at Silecroft. Shut! Gave up and carried on to Silecroft Beach, read the Telegraph and had a Mister Whippy. Home for 5 to catch a couple of jobs and finished just after 6. Out at 9 into the Last Night at the Big Kings. The Flying Cascara Brothers. Place was BOUNCING! A great night!
TUESDAY 25th AUGUST.
A pleasant morning. Had an early job right in town and whilst I was standing outside I met several nice friends so had a chat before doing my work. Had some good viewings to handle and then Lisa, Amber and Marissa came down to town and we all met up with Helen and Andrea in The Rose for a very nice lunch. Needless to say I didn't get many words in with 5 women babbling away. But it was very nice to see such my lovely family. Back to the Office then whilst they all trooped off to go shopping. Again. I called up to Helen's for tea. They were still babbling on.
The Lake District weather as it really happens .. !

Straight from the horses mouth :
Date :FRIDAY 28th August
Try this one if you want to--------
RALPHY LAD at Hamilton Park 7.30pm.
Outsider at about 25/1 Might get a place.
Remember what I have always said. It is all just for a bit of fun.
BE ASSURED, YOU WILL LOSE IN THE LONG RUN !
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!
