all of those north korean scamps are at it again another nuclear test in north korea has made all the headlines trust me nuclear missiles are something worth being concerned over but haven't we heard this song and dance before all the way back in two thousand and two the north koreans according to the b.b.c. ruled that they have a secret weapons program and turned their young beyond nuclear reactor back on since then every once in a while a missile flies and people say the war is coming and silence then another test of some sort shock horror and then silence again north korea just uses this is a bargaining tool to get what they want and rather how wacky the north korean state may seem they understand that launching one or two missiles against united states means they probably won't even hit their target and in return their entire country will be turned into ash instantly this situation really isn't cause for concern
8:29 am
until something big changes like the us not being in a position to support south korea japan or some other dramatic event that changes the game like china giving up their support for the north korean side but for now the cycle just keep going on and on and about two years the same headlines will be back with the same fear will be back a lather rinse repeat but that's just my opinion.

it's no good if someone's on their own it shouldn't be like this that the new year is a holiday and people. don't be alone. and many find a partner young men and women and not only the young. the senior citizens and all kinds of people travel with us. and many get acquainted on the train you board the train brings people together. what i mean to say is that when people are in the metro or when walking down the street or stand in line at a store they're less likely to say hello i like you while on the train in a pleasant atmosphere with a friendly conductor and a bunch of other factors it brings people together and for many it turns out to be very good. people start families and give birth to children this is very good that's what happiness is about. olga and the goal met a year ago this very train. honest we

but a year ago it was completely different and the colors were different the sky was blue that was the single cloud in the sky despite being so early so the love was a determined to retrace last year's routes to the on a bridge where they first kids. will remember how it was last year but i wouldn't say that the emotions are the same they are different this time. but we definitely have positive emotions i love my husband i hope he loves me of course i do. like it is the most we stop to the bridge because it isn't view. the weather was cloudless like it was and is again lights reflecting in the water it will seem like. olga loves taking photos so she began to first grow the reflection of the lights but at that moment i just.
8:51 am
feel it's a miracle image. when you look so you. i guess i believe in miracles. knickers and so i think we all believe in marriage some people simply forget about it but in their heart of hearts they never stop believing and then suddenly in miracle happens and it comes from somewhere deep inside it revives again and this long as we believe in something wonderful and something beautiful miracles happen. you know it's january first and i'm already going to work. also sure that a new year miracle would come his way and in the morning he made up with his
8:52 am
girlfriend on his way to work he received a message saying simply i was wrong i love you. but don't worry when i got home i saw a message on the line printed in my girlfriend and changed her mind and wanted to make up another she said she was wrong and i hope we won't argue again that i won't just let her go like this after all we've been together for two and a half years and i believe we are made for each other and the go alexy immediately drops everything and head straight back to moscow. york with a ticket to moscow place with the. economy or business class economy class but then you know the difficulties make a relationship stronger if there were no problems it wouldn't be life which it would be boring it was the first time i celebrated new year on the train at first i was very sad because i had to leave and i thought it would be my worst new year
8:53 am
