Ron, last week I called Jim the ' Imperial Wizard' -- but I can fully
appreciate your suggestion of 'A National Treasure' ... My 
Japanese friends will enjoy this. 

I cannot explain why, but he appears to have no repercussions 
from all the shoveling he did yesterday. That's great! And to think,
he keeps asking me to pass him the Glucosamine/Condroiten...

BTW, 45 years ago he was knocked off a ladder while using a power
saw on the siding of the house, and ended up with a compression
fracture of his spine. They put him in a bulky cast for 10 weeks,
with which he actually got a ride from a neighbor all the way into 
NYC to work, every morning! At that moment in time, he climbed
under the car, still in his cast, to make a repair, and darnit if he
didn't fracture the cast! The doctor was not amused. He wrapped 
Jim and the whole cast with another layer of plaster and gauze,
and sent him home several pounds heavier to wait for two weeks
extra ...
