i loved going to the pubs in Cambridge. especially the Granta, which is still in business, and the Spade and Becket which is not.
on one memorable occasion a session at the Mill in Silver St culminated in a group swim in the river... happy times :h:

I got 2 of those in less than 10 minutes. I can only blame the immaculate institutions that are Oxford and Cambridge. Thanks to both of them, they revolutionised the way that I sit down.

Pretty sure I've seen nappies floating in the Cam before...can't understand why anyone would willingly go in that river, unless they wanted to get an infection :s-smilie:
