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.


No More Booty And Da Bible

Yup that's right as the bishops have replaced that with "spoils" as the kiddies were yukking it up in mind screw class.

Here's a couple more.

Proverbs 31:10, the ode to "The Ideal Wife," is now a "Poem on the Woman of Worth."

Call or do what you want with this but the fact remains it's still remains a bunch of runny stinky bull shit.


  1. I don't know about the runny stinky bullshit, but that sure does look like it would be one fine place to live in your header photo. Mountains right outside the door....

  2. I'd live around here too Teresa. This was taken north of Westcliff before you get to State Highway 50 between Salida and Canyon City. These mountains around here just loom out at you and seem so huge. Not sure why that is. I also admit to this being a window picture.

  3. The thing that impressed me when I went thru Westcliff is the long view west towards the Sangria De Cristo Mountains and it was in the spring when the mountains were bleeding.

  4. May I interject? Sangre de Cristo Mountains, blood of Christ. The snow, when it starts to melt, in certain light, looks almost red.

  5. Of course you can-I had never heard that they at times they looked red. maybe I will get to see that.

  6. Translating words from another language can produce a number of words to convey the same thought. If a word changes it common meaning over time there is nothing wrong with replacing the word or words for the reader to better understand the original writers meaning.
    Changing a title to a passage that was added centuries later as a study aid isn't that big of a deal. It doesn't change what the writer intended.
