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.


A Damn Good Deal And Screw The Army

I'm so sick and fucking tired of the military bitching and moaning that they can't do this or they can't do that if this happens or that happens.

You fuckers got two wars going on and are wanting to up the ante in one plus you have men who are dieing and you have plenty of bullets.

It don't get any better so stop your goddamn complaining!!

Military officials say proposed wilderness designations for parts of the Colorado mountains could threaten the Army's only high-altitude training site for helicopter pilots.

Col. Joel Best, senior aviation officer for the Colorado Army National Guard, said Tuesday the proposed "Hidden Gems" wilderness designations would put all of the training site's high-altitude landing zones off-limits.

The White River Wilderness Coalition is advocating for wilderness protection for about 450,000 acres, in several areas.


  1. Christ, this shit is making me crazy.

    Forever wars..brought to you by Bush43 and his buddy Barack Obama.

  2. Heh! If they get the areas closed off, maybe the Colorado wingnuts will be reporting fewer "black" helicopters. You reckon?

  3. Never ending shoot 'em ups and the sonsofbitches always want more and they get it Dusty. Maybe jeg - they have backed off the pinyon canyon expansion but not given up for sure. Good to hear from you!

  4. The Military brass remind me of the old-time Hollywood producers, always got to have something big happening, a new blockbuster to promote.

  5. War games don't destroy the wilderness, trees do.

  6. This Just In- Colorado taxpayer's have received another Federal bailout as the cash strapped workers in the other 49 states have been asked to come to the aid of minimum wage workers in the Rocky Mountain State. As Norman Numbnutts of Colrado Taxpayers United said, " We really could be on to something here. We could become like Mississippi of the West where the middle class starts receiving Fed checks just for living here. The possibilities are endless when you put your hand out and taxpayers from all the other states start subsidizing workers here in the state. I'm betting that our business climate will thrive when we don't pay our workers anything and the Feds pick up the whole tab. Capitalism and free enterprise are truely beautiful things."
