January 30th in Barrington History

Welcome to This Day in Barrington History

Welcome to January 30th and Day 29 of 365 in Barrington, Illinois! You’ll find our stories of the day – past, present & future (events) – right here on today’s DailyPage.

Because every day has its own rhythm, we’re sharing a song of the day here at 365Barrington.com.

On this day, January 30th in 1975, The Bee Gees began recording ‘Jive Talkin’, which became their second US chart topper and No.5 UK hit. Barry Gibb’s inspiration for the song came when his wife commented on the sound their car made while crossing a bridge over Biscayne Bay into Miami. She noted, “It’s our drive talkin’.” The song’s rhythm was modelled after the sound their car made crossing the Julia Tuttle Causeway each day from Biscayne Bay to Criteria Studios in Miami.

I don’t know about you, but’s a rhythm that takes me WAY BACK! I remember this record playing in our family room while my brother and I played “Hot Lava” on the couch, record player spinning nearby. Pretty sure the Neil Diamond and Kenny Rogers records were also within reach. Wow, dad, you were pretty cool back in the 70’s! 😉 We don’t have a picture, but it’s a snapshot that’s lives in my mental photo album.

Do you remember where you were in place and time when you first heard Jive Talkin’?

Two words today! 😁 汤圆 tāng yuán and 元宵 yuán xiāo are both traditional treats for the Lantern Festival...

Oh, did I mention that the Lantern Festival is TODAY? Well, it is! Time for the "New" part of New Year to go away ☹️ Now it's just year.

Back to the topic at hand -- both tangyuan and yuanxiao are glutinous rice balls. Both contain fillings and are eaten for the Lantern Festival, but there are several differences.

Firstly, it is a regional difference. Typically, tangyuan are traditional in South China, and yuanxiao in the Notth. The textures and filling types also vary, as does the cooking method (yuanxiao are typically cooked for longer).

Don't worry if you didn't know there was a difference, though. Even some Chinese may not realize that the two similar-looking treats are not one and the same 🙃

Happy Chinese learning! Thanks for taking this journey with us! 🙂
