Mystery Photo Contest in Barrington

210. "Guess Where Wednesday" & Last Week’s Winner

Home Newsroom 210. "Guess Where Wednesday" & Last Week’s Winner

Two ghosts were recently spotted in Barrington, they were caught on camera and they’re our mystery photo of the week!  This one might require a little deductive reasoning, but I’m confident that the ghost busters and sweet tooths among us will be able to put two and two together.  If you can guess where in Barrington this mystery photo was taken, there’s a great prize for the winner this week.

Mystery Photo Contest at 365 BarringtonIt is, indeed, a picture of the cupola and copper weathervane on top of Barrington’s Metra station.  The Blue Heron design is a nod to the official bird of the Village of Barrington and it was designed by a local artist named Don “The Copper Guy” Murphy.  He designs weathervanes for buildings across the country and you can learn more about him on his website at CopperGuy.com.

Here’s another, more revealing look at the spot where we took that picture.  Oh how I miss taking the train down to work in the city!

Hi! 😁 Today's Word of the Day is 汉语 hàn yǔ -- literally "Han Language."

So, we're backtracking... or maybe just following the path of yesterday's post 😂. Either way, it might behoove you to know the context of this word.

The 汉 hàn in 汉语 refers to the Han ethnic group -- the largest of the 56 (government-proclaimed) Chinese ethnic groups. Some data have indicated that Han people comprise 90% or more of the population. So, it's unsurprising that this large group has gotten to name one of the most common terms for Mandarin. (Remember, Mandarin is what we learn at BHS and is the official language of China. There are other dialects/languages in existence.)

Anyhoo, the point is that if one is going to be referring to Mandarn Chinese as a language, it wouldn't hurt to know how to say it two ways! 🙃

普通话 and 汉语 can be used in most of the same contexts -- 汉语 might be a little less eloquent, but you won't get in trouble for using either. 🙂
