Shinsegae Food Co. LTD finished 2012 strongly, opening its seventh Johnny Rockets restaurant in 22 months.

I have yet to be in an area where one if these places exist but I am looking forward to seeing how it stacked up and curious if they too serve “Bulgogi” burgers like McD’s.

With $20,000 in private loans and a soon-to-be wife, Kim is also concerned that he won’t be able to support his new family, or his father’s faltering business.

Remember when I called this little point here? Here is s nice view of how “advanced” Korea is in joining the world financial markets. I guess advanced mean more debt huh?

Now, to actually talk about rockets for real:

U.S., China in deal on U.N. North Korea rebuke; Russia to back it

The United States and China have struck a tentative deal on a draft U.N. Security Council resolution condemning North Korea for its December rocket launch, U.N. diplomats said on Friday, and Russia predicted it would be approved by the council

There is a saying that I heard many, many years ago, “After all is said and done, more is said than done.”. There is no greater example of this than what you read on that link. The U.N. Keep passing these “resolutions” and yet nothing changes. Its like telling someone elses kid that they are misbehaving but they just sick their tongue out because they know they can get away with it. Its only s matter off time before some either does something stupid our that they create a false report then all hell will break lose…for a while. While I am not a fan of Watts, I do think that the US had enough of a technical edge to end it quickly. It will be quick only because there is nothing of value here (i.e. Oil) but that depends on the profiteering warmongers I guess.

Having a love of travel has lead me to move to South Korea in 2010. Moving to an Eastern culture from a Western culture is a wild experience and there is never a dull day!
