I've read a little about this guy, definitely not a metrosexual. I think that's his wife in the photo.

Not a metrosexual, indeed. Nowhere close. That's his wife in the photo. Their difference in size is not nearly so great as it looks there: the huge bearskin coat makes his body seem bigger, and the beard makes his head seem larger. I've seen other photos of the two, and while he was much larger than her, the difference wasn't so extreme.

I've been reading his bio. Such an amazing figure. A modern day Viking.

James: Thank you! And I extend my best wishes to both of you gentlemen this Christmas, as well.
