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.

How Many More Times Will You Write The Same Story

Eight Fort Carson soldiers make their last trip home

It's the same old death story from a piece of shit paper that banged the drums for war in Iraq along with the best of them.

Don't get me wrong. The story of soldiers dieing should never grow old. As in this piece names of who died along with a bit of humanity lets you know these people actually once had a life and a future and that's the very least we can do for them.

What's old is that whether it's this publication or any other in this country how much longer are you going to print the same story over and over again BEFORE you all redeem yourselves a bit for your whoreness for taking us to war for lies and call for the immediate withdrawal from Iraq and Afghanistan?

  1. As usual the people that bang the drums of war, do none of the dying. Wars of necessity are bad, but wars of choice, sickening.

  2. Ft Carson has lost more soldiers than the rest. I saw one of the local Barbers saying he has become afraid to read the papers as he was afraid to see customers names among those killed! This really has to stop but them asses will get us in deeper!

  3. 6200 American soldiers dead, 34,000 severely wounded, 35,000 with PTSS and hundreds of suicides yet to be counted. Hundreds of thousands of dead civilians in the Middle East. Ah, can you smell victory in your livingroom tonight? Me neither.

  4. My prayers go with the family of the soldiers. A couple of years ago a former student was killed in Iraq. When will the madness end?

    BTW, I've given you an award.

  5. One Fly: I am reminded of the poignant scene in "The Outlaw Josey Wales" where he meets on horseback with the Indian Chief. Their exchange was priceless! Let's hope we can see the world evolve into a peaceful coexistence where common ground is identified and build upon for communication.

  6. If these motherfuckers couldn't jizzum all over the names of dead people while laying out the daily paper, they wouldn't bother getting out of bed in the morning, hey. They must love dead people anyhow. They sure do their best to make more of'em.
