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.

Thanks Colorado Dims

Under Senate Bill 108, owners of cars and SUVs will pay an extra $32 the first year, $36.50 the second year and $41 the third year.

I can understand where Republicans get some of their fodder and this is an example. We all know how taxes drain us but this pisses me off as it's not fair. All this was pointed out but they went ahead and passed it anyway.

At present for one of my vehicles the registration fee is $26. With an additional 123% increase for next year that will now be $58.

With a 158% increase for the third year that same registration will cost $67.

I will pay my share and always have. My bitch is that why in the hell do little people like myself get lumped into the same category as the rich bastards? My vehicles make a very small footprint compared to most others on the road.

There were several ways to make this more equitable but instead the Democrats here chose to screw without mercy the ones who put them in office.

Kiss my ass on this one you guys.

  1. I understand why you're pissed.
    This whole thing should have been done differently. Using engine size and horsepower would have made more sense.

  2. $26. ??? $67?

    When Arnie rolled back the $300 reg to $75 I was thrilled.

    It's going back up.

    I do understand your point, but when haven't the Rethugs slapped the middle and lower income people for the rich's share of taxes?

    those fucking Waltons ain't hurting.
