    UPDATE 20 DECEMBER 2016, 1330 KST TUESDAY;

    59F,and cloudy today on Jeju-do. We arrived at our home on Jeju-do yesterday afternoon, it feels good to be home brothers. We are hoping to remain here until after the new year, our entire "Combined Dutch Family" will be here, my daughters and families from Colorado will arrive here Weds. for the holidays. We also have The Mice and our friends here at the compound too so we have a full house lol! Keeping fingers crossed, all are predicting a "high intensity" before Trump is sworn in 20 January, what is still being debated with the worse scenario a full ground assault in the DMZ area, most probable in the Paju are towards Seoul. So needless to say our aircrew and aircraft are on stand by and staying at our home here. We are less than hour away from Paju by air, lol, that is also about the car drive from our Paju home to "work" during rush hour, so not so far time wise. We also have an uplink here and monitor all activity and news each morning or as needed, so are NOT out of touch with the situation and all operations. With some luck we hope to get through the holidays before any action occurs.

        UPDATE 21 DECEMBER 2016,1550 KST WEDS;

        66F. with light rain today on Jeju-do. My daughters arrived this morning so the entire "Combined Dutch Family" is present in our new home on Jeju-do. The ladies are busy putting up decorations and getting things ready for Christmas weekend, they are all wearing hanbok and the house seems very pleasant with the smell of fresh cookies and pies. "Snow Flake" and her uncle Dutch Jr., did a good job getting the compound ready for us all along with picking us all up at the airport the past couple days. LOL! We also have quit a gang of little blonde headed Dutch and black headed Korean kids running around, along with a few Chinese kids of our friends from the PRC also in for the holidays...we are the UN LOL! Christmas weekend will be a traditional Christmas and the dinner formal with live music and dancing, should be very special this year, waltz and trot. Soo-jin and I like the old traditions best. New Years will be just the opposite though, modern with again live music and entertainment to celebrate the start of a New Year. New Years we will also welcome our friends from The ROKA, ROKAF and ROKN, should be a fun weekend lol! Uniforms only for dinner and after dinner drinks to honor those no longer with us advancing into the New Year,( a tradition we have had for years now, the "last drink" is always cognac) unfortunately a large number this year, My granddaughter, son one of Soo-jin's daughters set up both parties and booked the entertainment, they did an fine job. LOL! and the end of January we get a second shot at New Tears LOL!

                Those damned missiles just keep exploding moments after launch. It does not speak well to their reliability.

                  UPDATE 5 JANUARY 2017,1525 KST THURSDAY;

                  40F. and sunny today in Paju. We made it through the holidays un interrupted! We had a great holiday season this year. My daughters returned to Colorado Tuesday morning and Soo-jin and I returned to work this morning. Tensions are still extremely high here on the peninsula, all on the ground know it's just a matter of time before a major provocation occurs. Good things are happening though...

                  We think the "golden Boy" is drifting off course brothers. He's backing the wrong despot, Russia never was and never will be a friend to anyone only to Russia. He's making an enemy of a ally, yeas China, You all better look up all the joint training involving the PLA, PLAN and PLAAF. Heck the PLA trained with both the US Army and Australian Army IN AUSTRALIA last summer folks. Acting tough against each other is SHOW for the public. Check out Chinese SF operating out of Kabul brothers and Navy off Africa both fighting the Muslim terrorists folks. China is the only real leverage that keeps North Korean missile out of your back yard. better think hard about getting butt buddies with Putin, cause that's just where you will get it in the end. Putin and his failing "2nd Soviet Union" are losers, they are currently and will continue to be. Oh well, preaching to those asleep.put on your Doors tapes and slumber on.

                  With New Years approaching, nice to have two a year lol! We truly appreciate our little part of Valhalla here. Our Valkyries are the penultimate in the universe brothers...

                    Expecting a couple inches of snow here in central NC this weekend...what we call a "blizzard" in the South! Stores will be sold out of bread and milk 12 hours before the "storm" hits and as soon as the first snowflake falls the world will come to a complete stop. No Valkyries here to keep up warm over the weekend, though....Stay safe, Jim.

                          32F. and mainly clear in Paju this early morning. Weather appears to be holding in the high 40's to 50 this weekend with a small amount of rain on Sunday.We are on standby in the hangar with "on the road again" playing on the speakers. The usual breakfast is being served, steak and eggs what else? This morning is supposed to be a simple in/out SR, I hate these, they always seem to grow on their own as the operation evolves,

                          • Drones. LMFAO. That's a mk 1 mod 0 remote controlled airplane. I reckon they work though. What you need are killer hawks. I've seen more of those taken out by hawks than you would believe. But I'm down with lasers.

                            Steak and eggs? Again? Hmmm, no wonder there's a shortage, you guys are cornering the market! Enjoy ole buddy. Those calories are getting put to good use.
