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.


Every Women Should Be Super Pissed!

UPDATE 2/23/09
Boyles is even a bigger slug than one could imagine. Check it out.

Had said recently there has been maybe a couple of examples on OTC of what goes on along the front range on the AM dial daily. That I don't do it because it's the same all over and we all know the dynamics. This is something fucking else!

As a male I find this reprehensible and besides that these are my fucking airwaves. That's an issue for another time.

Summary: During a discussion about President Barack Obama's signing of the economic recovery bill in Denver, Peter Boyles repeatedly referred to Democratic U.S. Rep. Diana DeGette, who attended the ceremony, as "Vagina DeJet" and "Vagina DeGette." In one segment of his program, Boyles laughed loudly while playing and replaying an audio tape of the president mispronouncing the congresswoman's last name.

All of us should be so lucky to have a person like Colorado's Rep. Diana DeGette representing us.

This women hating slug of a man needs to be shit canned for this. I have followed every e-mail link in the story from Media Matters and said just that. If I'm wrong tell me-seriously.

The audio clip is not too long. Listening to grown men act like they do here leaves me shaking my head. Please get to work FCC.


  1. I can only remark on the irony that this sort of thing seems to be OK with the FCC, while inadvertant or occasional use of cursing is considered beyond the pale.

    I'm for free speech, and I'm for it here. This Boyles character is an ass, and it would have been obvious to almost anybody who was listening. If he weren't free to speak what passes for his mind here, many of us might not have known.

  2. This is worse than what Imus was hounded off the airwaves for. I hope this gathers steam and an issue is made of it.
