Cohabiting with undergraduates is very good preparation for cohabiting with livestock but I should think this actually an example of coexistence rather than one of cohabitation. :shock:

Have you had occasion to pole the punt ‘pon the Cam?

True, coexistence would also work, but it wouldn't be quite as interesting a subject heading. ;)

I haven't had a chance to row on the river Cam, but I figured given the demographic of the forum, at least someone here might have.

I did pole a punt pon the Cam while an exchange student at Exeter U. in 1968. Can’t remember seeing eight-oared shells or matriculating cows. Burt Bacharach lyric in there: “For ruminants should always be lovers too.” :lol:

Punts are all on the college backs in town. Rowing is, or was, done further downstream on the longer and wider reaches, but last time I was there the river was clogged with weed and houseboats. CUBC at last has shiny new boathouse at Ely and row on the straight cuts of the River Ouse.
