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.


What Happens When You Drill For Methane And It Ain't Good

Hope this never happens to you as this has turned into a nightmare for many in the west and once again as is the case most of the time the drillers are saying "not us not us" when the evidence is obvious enough for even an imbecile to cypher out and come to a conclusion that they are.

Our property is in the same county as the people in this piece. They are not looking for methane in that area. We are fortunate that there is water close to the surface and our well is old and was hand dug. Other wells that have been drilled in the area of are much deeper.

The piece is a pretty decent read.

WALSENBURG, Colo. – Bernice and Jerry Angely like to show visitors the singed T-shirt a friend was wearing when their water well exploded and shot flames 30 feet high.


  1. I'm not sure there's a problem here. The good corporate citizens of Petro seem to be taking care of all the problems with this vital process. The people of this community need to just go about their daily lives and let the "wise elders" of Colorado and our nation handle these type of issues. If you don't understand how this all works in America just call Dick and George and they'll explain it to you. " Gas is God" is on Colorado's license plate, isn't it?

  2. "Petroglyph considers itself a good neighbor . . ." glad I don't have neighbors that good. The crap never ends does it.

  3. There was this fellow from this side over by Grand Junction who was all in favor of this until it ruined his well or made him sick or some damn thing like that. I'm just glad that they're no where near the ranch because they could easily destroy our water source because of where it comes from.

  4. What a shame that is beautiful country. Of course it is not the companies fault, new houses my ass. They will do whatever they can yeah to cover their ass.

  5. Wow - this what the people in northern Pennsylvania have to look forward to when the gas drilling starts.

  6. I would think it's going to be similar Cat's. Don't see why it wouldn't be.
