This is Bistek al la Mexicana a common dish found many places. There are several places I get this some better than others but all real decent! Kind of a tomato based sauce with generally pretty tender pieces of beef and a fair amount of it. The rice is pretty generic but the frijoles can be something else. This also includes as many fresh made in front of you tortillas you want and brought to you with a smile. Something like this costs around 50-60 pesos or $3. The squeezed as you watch orange juice is 20 and brings the price up a bit but worth it. Nothing in the States I've ever had compares to this not even close plus it'll cost 7-10 smacks. I don't know what I'm going to eat when I return. It will be an adjustment as I do this so much that is go into Puerto Vallarta on the south side and have me a excellent lunch with "real" Mexican food not the slop I get back there. I do not plan on eating out much at all only at maybe three select places. Pricey yes but worth it because it's so good. I threw away so much money last summer eating way overpriced shitty food. Several times the food got thrown away as well. The whole of Mexico is an eating machine I tell you. I'm gonna miss this.

I feel good and and think the higher temps and humidity contributes to that. It's the same every time. After a month or two you realize and say " Hey I feel pretty damn good!"

Just as important I believe the food made fresh with wholesome fresh ingredients as well contributes to that. Get off the bus in town the food smells everywhere make me hungry just like that.

I Adamantly Do Not Want Anybody Killing Wild Horses

Euthanasia Option - About 33,000 wild horses roam the open range in 10 Western states. The BLM has set a target "appropriate management level" of horses at 27,000.

I have a thing about people and their horses and that's summed up by a well used phrase. "People and their fucking horses" There's more goddamn pet horses around here you wouldn't believe. The way things are going it's possible Sophie and Ajax could turn into supper but that's another matter.

One does not need to venture very far west of here and have the chance to see wild horses. That's way too cool. If you have not seen the vastness of many western states and that includes the Dakotas you would understand there's plenty of room for these guys and alternatives to killing them.

Do not repeat DO FUCKING NOT kill MY horses! A bunch of assholes for even thinking about it.

I'm so sick of kill being a very popular choice used too often by my country and for the wrong reasons.

  1. I do not believe in killing them either. It is like killing a dog to me. I would much rather see the horses run wild! Thinking of starvation makes you think but I just do not see killing or eating them!

  2. In the absence of natural predators, the only option I see is equine birth control. It would be nice if humans exercised a little more birth control here, but that's another matter.

    We keep running into the problem of only being able to support a certain number of large animals per acre. The usual ways of dealing with that issue are all pretty ugly.

  3. This isn't the first time this issue has been raised. Seems to me there's plenty of room out there. Just looked and they have birth control for horses.

    Humans natural predators are other humans it seems.

  4. It's all about the B.L.M. bowing to the cattle
    ranchers who run their stock on leased federal
    land, they complain the horses eat to much of
    the feed, they serve no purpose and they want
    them thinned out.

  5. That's the reason I wrote that it would be nice if humans exercised more birth control, JJ Flash. It's usually about how we use the land.

    Nevertheless, until there are enough truly open spaces to support natural predators, then the necessity for controlling the horse population will eventually be the same, as will the options.

    Nice to know they have the option of going on the Pill...
