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.


Show How Stupid Tough You Are Cowboy Parents And Don't Cry

Twelve-year-old Richard Wayde Hamar of Yuma was killed in a bull-riding competition at the Little Britches Rodeo at the Boulder County Fairground in Longmont this morning.

Yea no shit that's what happens when a big ass bull steps on the chest of your 12 year old! The article lists five others who died the same way. I am not a parent but I can say for sure my kid would not be trying to ride a fucking bull at 12 years of age and there is one who died at nine.

Then there will be an autopsy. Save your time cause it was cowboy stupidity that killed this young man.


  1. Darwin RULZ!

    that's one lil redneck peckarwood who won't be reproducin'!

  2. After reading what I put up early this morning I thought it might have been a bit harsh. But the reality is that that for the most part I don't have a very high regard for da cowboys. Fact be known of the ones that have figured out how to vote most go repug-bet on it.

    Is that really your position Woody?

  3. You know, people do not think before they let kids do things. You can get killed doing that so be prepared when it happens. Here a 5 year old was killed when his father and the guy overseeing things let him fire an Uzi. Of course it kicked up and shot him in the head. Come on!

  4. What was to be accomplished by a 12 yo getting on a 1200# bull. Whoever signed the release form is guilty of childslaughter.

  5. I don't think these bull are the big ones used at regular rodeos but that changes nothing. As with the UZI it seems people have lost their common sense.

  6. I gotta disagree. When I was 12 years old I did shit that probably should have gotten me killed. And you know what? If I'd been one of the coddled wussified children of nowdays I woulda just gotten in step with the right-wing redneck indoctrination that my parents tried to force-feed it, instead of becoming an ornery redneck liberal.

    I don't think we do kids a favor if we protect them from everything dangerous, especially when they've gotten to the point where they're starting to feel their oats -- and believe me, if you knew the shit I got up to at 12 years old, you'd probably be as horrified as my mother would be if she found out. But that was back in the days when moms turned their kids out and said "go play outside" instead of barricading their kids in the house in front of a glowing baby-sitter all day long. So it goes.

  7. Excellent points BT and I too am lucky to come out of that era unscathed as well.

    What should have been said better by me is that adults riding bulls aren't getting killed but the kids are so in my way of thinking some tweaking needs to be done with this sport.
