Should auld acquaintance be forgot
and never brought to mind?
Should auld acquaintance be forgot
and days of auld lang syne?
For auld lang syne, my dear,
for auld lang syne,
we'll take a cup of kindness yet,
for auld lang syne."
- Robert Burns, Auld Lang Syne

My father’s family was from Scotland, and we grew up with the fabulous works of Robert Louis Stevenson, Sir Waler Scott, …and of course Robert (Rabbie) Burns. The song “Auld Lang Syne is traditionally sung on New Year’s Eve (or Hogmanay in Scotland). The meaning of the phrase translated to English comes to be “old long since”..but we can think of it as “days gone by”. The tune had been around since the 16th century before Mr. Burns put pen to paper, and to this day we sing it in remembrance of times gone by, while drinking a cup of kindness with friends (or a “wee dram” as our father called it..).

With the upcoming holidays, and the New Year (which we are all looking forward to!), we remember with fondness times past, as we look forward and prepare for the coming year. Charles Lamb once said “New Year’s Day is everyone’s birthday”. What a great thought! Thinking of the new year as a new beginning, full of new opportunities and experiences…what a joyful concept!

On behalf of all of us here at San Clemente Villas by the Sea…our warmest wishes for a happy, healthy and prosperous new year for each of you and your families.

Best Wishes,
Laura Kephart, Executive Director

In this first month of a new year, let’s all vow to be more positive, kinder, to keep on learning and to have fun every day. With that said, I think it’s fun to mull over factoids I maybe didn’t know. Here’s a few to tickle your brain cells.

If you cut down a cactus in Arizona, you be penalized up to 25 years in jail. It is similar to cutting down a protected tree species.

The first movie ever to put out a motion-picture soundtrack was Snow White and the Seven Dwarves.

Forrest Fenn, an art dealer and author, hid a treasure chest in the Rocky Mountains worth over 1 million dollars. It still has not been found.

German Chocolate Cake is named after an American baker by the name of Samuel German.

The first service animals were established in Germany during World War I. References to service animals date as far back as the mid-16th Century.

75% of the world’s diet is produced from just 12 plant and five different animal species.

Tirana, the capital of Albania has a lot of things in common with other European capitals – except one. It’s one of two capitals without a McDonalds. The second is Vatican City.

Blessings to All!
Jan McAlister, Executive Director
