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 ..

FRIDAY 20th October.

A rather windy and wet day!   Had a good day though.  Spent all afternoon at the Coro getting things all set up for the Heart of Ulverston Awards.  The hall looked quite magnificent.  The actual event in the evening was a huge success and all the pictures and a full report is on the Evening Mail Website  (   nwemail.com ).  Get on and take a peek!

THURSDAY 19th  October

Market Day in Ulverston and there are lots of folk and lots of stalls for them to spend their money on.   There has been a distinct improvement on the Thursday market,  though the Saturday market is still quite weak.  But the  UCE are working hard on that problem. and I do hope they succeed.   I visited Norman in FGH and he is improving steadily.  He is recovering well with his right arm and has quite a firm grip.  He speaks very highly of the nursing staff on Ward 6. He is hoping to be allowed home by Monday or Tuesday. I attended the B.I.D. Meeting at the Coro. It was very well attended and they are clearly doing a magnificent job. The Quiz was as good as ever and Bill had the chance for the Rollover ( £115.75 ) but didn't answer correctly so it rolls over to about £130 or so next week. BE THERE!

WEDNESDAY 18th October.

A very pleasant day after all the winds and rain from Ophelia.   It was my day off so I decided a little jaunt to Lancaster.  A city I have not been to for such a long time.  Went on the train of course,  a mere £6.20 return.  Spectacular views over Morecambe Bay with the sun shimmering on the high tide.  Wonderful.  Had a nice wander around the city and a tasty Chinese lunch and a half of Guinness at the John of Gaunt.    Visited the Castle,  and was most impressed.  Back home on the 3.31.  Another pleasant ride.  Out at 9 to meet up with friends and enjoyed Billy Scott at the Capitola!






The Lake District weather as it really happens .. !


It's been pouring overnight and there may be some more to come today, accompanied by some high winds. Watch out!

Racing tips from Ralph Spours


Straight from the horses mouth :

Date :SATURDAY 21st October 2017


 Tips for today will be posted later.

Good Luck and only put on what you are prepared to LOSE!

Remember, when the fun stops, STOP!

Good Luck and be Cautious!  Enjoy your 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! 

If you WIN the Bookies are only LENDING you the dosh.  They will get it back.  Certain!


 





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!
