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.

Chapter 11 For Two More Papers

Not that long ago the Rocky Mountain News went under and now there's this.

DENVER (AP) -- The holding company for MediaNews Group Inc. newspapers, including The Denver Post and San Jose Mercury News, says it plans to file for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection.

I find it hard to believe in the Denver market they are having a problem breaking even being the only paper left. Maybe they're that shitty and deserve it.

I do look at it on line every morning and link to articles on a daily basis such as this one above. Two days a week glance at the real thing and whether it's this one or another I do like holding a paper and reading.

But I'm not paying a penny to any publication that prints lies as truths along with some good stuff and calls it journalism because both sides have to be represented so there can be meaningful dialog.

My ass-just ain't gonna happen. If there's any money spent I want the whole truth and nothing but. No money for right wing fucking nonsense and stupid feel good stories about religious nutters who see baby jeebus and miracle mommy in a fresh pile of dog shit. If you fail so be it.

  2. There were 4 or 5 very good fishing days this fall where many of the fish caught are of this size. Important to note that in years past would catch 30-40 maybe even 50 in a 6-10 hour day. Now there are days when you may only get a couple in 2-3 hours and 20 on a good day if you're lucky. There's a video down below this Fearguth.

    May not catch as many in years past but still enjoy that and the beauty of the Colorado River on this section of it. Just don't get much better for me.

  4. Online newspapers are the present and the future. The New York Times is probably going to start charging for their online content, and I expet others to follow soon. In away, it's probably better for the environment anyway. A lot less paper means fewer trees cut down. But then again, since I changed the focus of Freeze Dried Gray Matter to environmental causes, that could explain why I look at it like that.

  5. Part of the newspaper's problem is that the Auto Industry is on it's lips. That's a huge part of their revenue stream. But your right, the so-called news, isn't really the news anymore. It's not what's in the paper anymore; it's what the sons-of-bitches leave out that should scare us.
