fine foods - better life (backlog flush #73 and travelog)
The Hallo! mart reminds me that I recently learned that 7-Eleven, once owned by the Dallas-based Southland Corporation, and has been through a handful of owners, is now fully owned by the Japanese company "Seven & I Holdings Co." which originally licensed the rights to launch 7-Eleven stores in Japan. Seven & I was established by three companies: a company called Ito-Yokado Co. Ltd. and the two companies who were the official Japan licensees of the 7-Eleven and Denny's brands.

So, visit a 7-Eleven if you haven't, and take a picture when you do, please. :^)

Heh, I think I've taken a few already but not posted.

It's odd because many of the signs do say "7 & i Holdings"; it seems odd to me to establish your branding as a holding company. Like you want consumers to think "gee..that I holdings really picks great companies to buy!"

Is it just that photo, or does Erin look like Spawn of EB?

When do you fly home, anyway.

I can't put my finger on why, but that ski mask pictured somehow says "burn victim" to me. Brr!
