It was a good weekend last week, starting out with another fine BBQ on Friday after work, and ending with the Churchill Club on Saturday, gathering together to smoke cigars, drink the liquor of the devil and discuss matters that are far from serious.  So, I will show you the cigar gathering first: We only numbered eight, but we enjoyed ourselves and are already planning the next one.  And the fine BBQ the previous day was hosted by the Facilities Department.  The MeatMaster of the feast used only salt and flavored the meat by different types of wood used to smoke it. I will tell you in all honesty, the meat I ate that day was the best tasting steak I have ever had.  Generally overseas, including Brazil, the beef is mostly range fed and is not tender.  It has an amazing taste, but it is tough to chew.  The meat I had Friday was extremely tender.  I could have eaten a large plate of it.  My RST, the Good Mister Wilson, told me it was from the flank of the cow.

And as I walk home in the evenings, I will occasionally stop by my buddy Antonio and get a couple of sausages from him.  I have also learned to look at the meat and make him cook it longer if needed.Life continues to be good.  Adventures come and go and if you have an open mind, you will be amazed at what you encounter.
