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 ..

THURSDAY 2nd July.

A very pleasant day but somewhat cooler than of late.  Hordes of folk in town as it is Market Day.  I am collecting quite well for my Sponsorship and am up to near the 300 mark.  How much can I squeezes from others before the deadline?  I watched a very exciting tennis match on tv.  Nadal v Brown.  Deserved to be  a final match as it was fantastic.  Nadal LOST which was not expected at all.  A good night at the Quiz with the Rollover money NOT being won.  Nigel had the chance and was but 2 years out.  The prize will be about 110 next week.  Ooooh!


Such a super day!  Hot and very sunny.  Come on summer!  Got my lovely Merc Sports out and took off for the afternoon. Firstly to see my old pal Jock at Spark Bridge and then on to Kirkby Lonsdale.  A lovely drive there with the top down.  Deliciously warm.  parked up and bought an ice cream that I enjoyed whilst sitting by the side of the river.   Took a pot at the crossword but couldn't concentrate at all.  So I gave up.  Home then and sat out on the Poop Deck for tea.  Out at 9 to meet up with friends for a couple of scoops. Kikbak were on at The Big Kings and were at their excellent best. 

Tuesday 30th June

last day of flaming June. And it is flaming. Lovely and warm coming after a month of very "iffy" weather.  Heavy clouds and low temperatures all month.  I do hope we get a run of nice weather.   There is high tension with the Greece deadline for payment to the IMF.  Whatever will happen?  Now there is to be a referendum.  Brinkmanship at it's highest. It's Wimbledon fortnight so all eyes will be on the box to see if the Brits can pick up anything.  It will be red hot playing tennis in this weather.  Too hot and lovely outside to be sitting indoors watching tv.  I sat out on the Poop Deck until 9 and then came indoors to watch another episode of The Syndicate.

The Lake District weather as it really happens .. !

Yet another quite gloriously sunny day in Ulverston!

Racing tips from Ralph Spours

Straight from the horses mouth :

Date :FRIDAY 3rd July

 NO selections today.

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!
