Billy Jack Worsham
Managing Editor: Foretravel Parts Manual Publications Deparment
Ever wonder where all those Foretravel manuals come from? Billy Jack Worsham is your man! Billy Jack began working at Foretravel on July 13, 1988, and we’ve now known him for years, and know him to be shy and modest . . . no wait . . . that’s someone else! Our Billy Jack is anything but shy and timid. He has studied for years to master ancient martial arts fighting techniques. He currently studies the system of Shen Chuan, translated “Spirit Fist,” a
name derived from the "ghost-like" and deadly striking a Shen Chuan practitioner is capable of. The system's flow, rapid striking, the bite of its locks, and its "never give up" tenacity are all depicted by the symbol of the cobra. Pretty scary? No way! Billy Jack is just “dad” to his proud family. Mendy and Billy Jack have been married for 18 years and have three children that they are extremely proud of: Maci, 14, and twins Kad and Katie, 10.
Computers are another art form he has mastered, and all our publications show Billy Jack’s dedication in making certain that your manuals are 100% accurate and informative. Now you know the real man behind the manual.
Enjoy his recipe for No-cook Fresh Garden Salsa!
NO-COOK FRESH GARDEN SALSA
Ingredients: 2 sweet bell peppers 1/2 pound hot peppers (I use jalapenos and a couple of habaneros for flaming) 1 lb onions 1 lb tomatoes Two cloves fresh garlic (this is pretty strong -- use 1/4 tsp garlic powder if fresh is not available) 1/2 to 1 bunch fresh cilantro (1 tsp dried if out of season) 1 tsp salt
1/8 cup vinegar 1/4 cup oil
Instructions: Wash all produce. Dice tomatoes and place in colander in the sink to drain off juice. Remove stems from peppers and chop. Remove seeds if heat is an issue. Dice onions. Mince the garlic cloves. Pluck the cilantro leaves, or do as I do and just chop the whole bunch. The stems are pungent and we like the extra
kick. We chop and dice because we like chunky salsa. For thin blends, just put all ingredients in blender and blend until smooth. Mix all ingredients in a large bowl. Cover and chill for 1 hour. Makes 6 cups.
