The Walnut - January, 2015

Welcome to 2015! Here’s to you and yours for a happy and healthy new year!

 

The Walnut - December, 2014

Ho-Ho-Hold on! You’re going to want to examine our new layout. If you’re reading The Walnut for the first time, you’re in for a prostate cancerous treat. We may have all had it, but we certainly haven’t had it! Come to our Christmas party on Dec. 18 to find out why.

And if you’re a veteran reader, well then you already know what we’re all about, don’t you? We’re a fun bunch, aren’t we?

You, too, are invited to the Dec. 18 bash. But the big question at the party will be, “Will we have chocolate macaroons?

 

The Walnut - November, 2014

Timing in life is everything, we’re told.

It’s MOvember, the ideal time for a Canadian Task Force’s stunning announcement about PSA tests to bring prostate cancer to the forefront of the news.

Hence, this issue’s focus is on that announcement and the reactions from a Globe and Mail columnist, Prostate Cancer Canada, and our own PCCN Ottawa co-chairs.

 

The Walnut - October, 2014

Replacing Arland Benn – Not so easy!

Our wonderful Walnut volunteer, Arland Benn, has chosen to step down from his role preparing the Walnut for mailing. We need a replacement – sooner than soon!

Here’s a summary of the role:

 

The Walnut - September, 2014

Summer’s been great.
We’ve had such a time.
We’ve read and relaxed
But my hamstring’s not fine.

Still, we forge on
As physio fixes
The back of my front
Where that muscle affixes.

But here’s some new stuff
Our reporters have found
‘Bout prostates and cancers,
The news just abounds.

 

The Walnut - June, 2014

What a front page!

What an issue! Probably
the best we’ve seen in
an entire month.

 

The Walnut - May, 2014

This just in. Our editorial board – yes, him - has decided to continue NOT to sell The Walnut wherever walnuts are sold. The announcement has made shares in this terrific publication jump 0.00465 points on the TSE. And why not?

This issue, like its predecessors, has a little something for everyone. Read on.

 

The Walnut - April, 2014

WARNING!

THE NEXT MONTHLY MEETING WILL BE ON THURS., APRIL 24!!! SO, PLEASE, DO NOT SHOW UP FOR OUR MONTHLY MEETING ON APRIL 17!!! NO SERIOUSLY, DON’T DO IT! WE WON’T BE THERE. WELL, SOMEONE WILL BE, BUT IT WON’T BE US.

THE CHURCH NEEDS THE ROOM AND SO OUR MEETING WILL BE A WEEK LATER, ON THURS., APRIL 24.

(THIS HAS BEEN WRITTEN IN ANNOYING CAPS BECAUSE OUR EDITOR FORGOT TO TURN OFF THE CAPS LOCK. ANYWAY, DID WE GET YOUR ATTENTION?)

 

The Walnut - March, 2014

Variety, we hear, is the spice of life.

This explains why our March issue has something for everyone who has prostate cancer, had prostate cancer or ever thought of prostate cancer.

Plus, just letting you know that the book, “Understanding Women” is now out in paperback. See photo page 6.

 

The Walnut - February, 2014

Just in time for Valentine’s Day, we lovingly bring you this issue featuring Rocco Rossi’s five-hole.

Nothing says “I love you” more than a cancerous (or excised) prostate with a copy of The Walnut tucked in among the roses.

Thoughtful, no?
