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.


Some SOB Shot Molly The Mule To Death For Fun

"She loved people," Jehly said. "She would cuddle with you on the ground."No one really claimed to own Molly, who was passed back and forth between neighbors in the tiny rural community."She was the traveling mule, going from family to family," Jehly said.

I don't know much about mules but reading this article it's clear Molly was a very special animal who meant a lot to many people.

I hope the sonofabitch that did this gets caught and punished appropriately. There are some things you just don't do in this society and one of them is you just don't go driving down a road and shoot livestock for the fucking fun of it. You sick bastard you.


  1. What the hell is wrong with people!?!

    Ya know....I hate to say this....but the more I get to know 'people', the more I like animals.

    I hope they catch that sick fuck!

  2. Awful. Hard to understand somebody killing something or someone just to kill. Molly never did anything to deserve this sort of treatment from anyone. Sad, very sad.

  3. aw, the motherfuckers, the motherfuckers the motherfuckers the motherfuckers...

    i wouldn't kill 'em.

    i'd jelly every joint in their bodies with a baseball bat and leave em to die from the crows...

  4. no, at heart, i'm probably not a 'nice' person. So sue me...

  5. I love mules and hinnies. They're my favorite ungulates. I cannot explain it. I rode/knew horses pretty well, once. We also had a burro, when I was a kid, and I doted on her. Tough little beast. Killed a rattlesnake one day, like it was nothing. She tossed me into a chamisa bush one time. It was a rite of passage to try to "ride" our 'Jenny-ass', as she was fondly known. She humiliated large strong men regularly.
    Burros are, of course, the mated with horses to make hinnies and mules.
    Hence, I suppose my admiratiuon for those...

  6. This is horrible. People that abuse animals or kill animals "just for fun" are sick human beings and should be locked up forever. They are equal to serial killers because both get pleasure out of killing. Right now, I am on a quest to end live pigeon shoots in Pennsylvania which is another killing "just for fun". They are all sick mother f*@kers.

  7. What a shame. This animal was clearly a friend to many people in the area, and probably to many of the animals, I'd bet. That someone would end her life with barely a thought is a dreadful thing.

  8. I am bawling like a baby. Its hard to type through the tears. That she suffered really eats me up. Fucking assholes.

  9. I hope they catch this sorry son of a bitch, lay him or her on their side, and shoot them in the gut with a high powered rifle. Then watch it suffer and die!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  10. Re: [aspenhills] Property Trespass & Horse Killing

    Hi Everyone,

    Not sure if everyone is aware but our neighbor to the South, Jerry Lowe found one of his horse's shot and killed on his property. Jerry used to let them roam more often and we would feed them carrots when they came up to the fence line. Jerry has turned this incident into the authorities earlier this year.

    This is to notify the the residents of Aspen Hills subdivision that a

    The proper authorities have been notified and is now a work in progress.
    If you have friends that like to hunt in this area you might tell them
    that, at least on this property, trespassers will be prosecuted to the
