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.


Spilling Plenty In Colorado

According to the Denver Post this morning and these numbers are fairly huge in what was spilled and the number of incidents.

The important statistic to me is this- Produced water extracted along with natural gas and frac water used in the drilling process were the most common substances spilled. They accounted for nearly half of the spills, 461, and about 85 percent of the amount.

This fracturing process is insidious and should be outlawed for several very important and common sense reasons. It won't be of course because just like other things in government it's the oil company's that tell our leaders what to do and the elected ones get down on their knees willingly to give them just what they need on a regular basis.


  1. Looking at your pic, I thought: where's Thelma and Louise?

  2. I'm not familiar with what they were driving Fearguth but I knew exactly what this was - a 1965 Buick Electra 225 a super fine piece of iron that even as heavy as it was screamed with 425HP.

  3. Wow! The wrecked car in your header is something!

    I do agree with your words in the last paragraph of the post. The leaders are just puppets in the hands of the oil companies.

  4. Of course, Duta! We live in the United Corporations of America!

  5. And because of that corrupt relationship the chickens are coming home to roost big time with all them taking a giant shit on the results of that association.

  6. According to the Internet Movie Data Base, Thelma and Louise were driving a green 1966 Ford Thunderbird convertible.

  7. The Kleptocracy rolls along.

    Obama and Cameron made a deal over BP during the G20 meeting.

    BP will be deemed too big to fail.

    The British pension funds are more important than the planet, according to these guys.

  8. We can't eat oil (or breathe it or drink it). When'll people wake up?

  9. No one will change unless forced to and if the gusher pushes our economy into a depression then change will happen Billie.

    The girls would have looked much better in an Electra Fearguth. Thanks.

  10. You guys know there's no regulation for that process of extracting gas because of a deal Dick Cheney cooked up. On so many levels it's wrong. I could write several pages on this but I'm sure you heard all the stories of poisoned wells. Some at the faucet can be lit on fire. Yes Burning water.
    This is not isolated, it's happening all over the country. Just in the fluid they use is over 470 chemicals. Some carcinogenic.

  11. And it continues Tim because no one has the balls to say no to the obvious super bad situation.
