Thanks for the TR, I need to get to these places.

As for the thread hijack, I agree Big G. A case can be made for 'jamb' but not a very convincing one. Websters seems to be alone among the major dictionaries in allowing jamb to be a verb and an alternate spelling of jam. There is a general consensus (including online grammarians) that jamb is a noun referring to an upright of a window or door (from the French jambe > leg). From The Good English Guide (Godfrey Howard):

"Jam is a verb and noun with a number of meanings, such as a fruit conserve, what happens to traffic in the rush hour and (informally) for the kind of mess we try not to get into. Jamb can only be a noun, and is an architectural term for the sidepost of a doorway or window frame."

Slow day at work!
