Cows On Midsummer Common

Closeup of cow on Midsummer Common

If you have looked at my photos of the cows on Midsummer Common here in Cambridge, you probably don’t realise how close to the houses the cows can be. So this is to correct that.

Of course, I didn’t shoo the cows over there. They just happened to be at this side of the Common. I singled this one out because it caught the rays of the sun so well. That chestnut brown is wonderful, isn’t it.

In case you think this is way out in the countryside, this is less than 500 yards as the crow flies from the centre of Cambridge.

I signed up to Revue. The home page of Revue says it “is an editorial newsletter tool for writers and publishers.”

I am, in the vernacular of British English, ‘giving it a go’.

To give something a go means to try something without high hopes of success or attachment to the result. It is a way of disarming the risk of failure.

My aim is to build a huge following – for what purpose? It might help to first have a purpose (beyond the adulation of the masses).

That’s for the bright future. For now I would like to get a few subscribers for David’s Satisfying Newsletter, so if you are in the mood…

  1. Lol, and quite suddenly I have the Rolling Stones line playing in my head, which you quite likely abhor, David: “I can’t get no… no I can’t get me no, no SATISFACTION!” Hahaha. (Sorry; )


    1. And that’s a lovely, healthy-looking animal, by the way♥️


      1. I am not a judge, but yes, to my eye it looks healthy, as they all do.


    2. Who can’t get no satisfaction? The cow? It was munching on the good stuff. 🙂

      Some Stones stuff I don’t like – mostly their early stuff. But by the time the ‘Let It Bleed’ album came out I think they had married their millionth-of-a-second timing with some lovely, complex tunes. That album is one of my favourites of any band.
