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.


Prairie Dogs Nearer To Endangered Status My Ass

The black-tailed prairie dog, the furry sentinel of Colorado's Eastern plains, may win the Endangered Species designation that its champions crave. Love them or hate them, there is no disputing that they once lay claim to some 90 million acres east of the Rockies, and now they've been squeezed into less than 2 million.

This is one article you should not believe. I guess there must be some activists involved that have contacts somewhere to even have the possibility of this being considered.

Read my lips. There are more prairie dogs around you wouldn't believe. These little guys will still be digging holes when there's nothing left but cockroaches and carp. Take it to the bank!


  1. It's a constant fight around here to get them out of the golf courses. They're worse than gophers.

  2. I guess I will have to take your word for it...as I don't know a damn thing about the Prarie Dog Population.

    Makes you wonder why they would push for this designation.

  3. Their allies include some people who don't like more development in general.~ I think we have a winner! ;)

  4. That's interesting because having recently been involved in local government facing growth issues I would have loved these little suckers even having done my share of population control in the past.
