What the Heck is Auld Lang Syne?

What the Heck is Auld Lang Syne?

You may have stayed up late enough last New Year’s Eve to sing (or at least to hear) “Auld Lang Syne.”  Have you ever wondered what this means and why we sing it on New Year’s Eve? For that matter, do you really know the words in old Scottish or in modern English?The term, “Auld Lang Syne” comes from an 18th century poem written in the Scottish language of that day. It translates to, “Old Long Since,” or in modern English, “Times Gone By.” It is too bad that most of us don’t know the meaning of this poem, because it is about an important topic for seniors, and therefore for OurSeniors.net.Basically, it is about remembering friends from the past. The core of the song is that when good people come into, or leave your life, it is a good idea to take a moment, raise a glass and remember the ones we have loved. If properly understood, several of...

Seniors and Fiber

Seniors and Fiber

Seniors have some special dietary requirements and problems but they also share many of the same needs and problems of the general population. One of those problems is the lack of sufficient fiber in senior diets. Americans in general get less than one half of the recommended daily allowance of fiber (38 grams for adult men and 25 for women) and seniors are in the same boat.The situation may be worse for seniors because fiber is believed to be important for preventing some of the chronic diseases that are more common in older people. Type-2 diabetes, heart disease and intestinal disorders and obesity are medical conditions that are more common in older patients; all of them may be related in some way to diets that are low in fiber. As we age, it makes good sense to pay particular attention to the need for this important nutrient.One source of misinformation about fiber stems from the fact that fiber is a...
