Bob speaks from the grave

Just watched the BBC 6 'o'clock news.
And Bob Monkhouse ( died nearly 4 years ago)
is in a really 'good' advert.
Its to promote the awarness of Prostrate Cancer.

A must see for us older male members of the forum.

Eat lots of tomatoes and you will be fine, as my Mum reminds me at the dinner table (when we have guests round)

so I'll mention that it's prostate cancer, not prostrate.

That said, the ad is powerful, and very clever. No wonder Bob's widow can't bring herself to watch it.

Prostate cancer is one that's got good survival rates. A friend of mine said that her dad had been told it's something you die with, rather than of.

Even so it's a major killer for men as they get older.

I was once told that all men would get it if they lived long enough.

Had my last check a week ago today - all clear!
