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.


We Got Jobs

And lookee at the rich repugs smile like flies on shit. Yes but of course jobs are needed but you don't have to think too hard about what they relate to.

Radio slugs and writers and others as well in Denver love to and continually refer to Boulder as "The people's republic of Boulder". Yup that they do and some snicker when they say it.

Yes what can I say? I'd like to see these 400 "jobs" not be in the perpetual war field but something like Sustainable Agriculture. You betcha that would work.


  1. Sustainable jobs would be in a field like renewable energy. Those would kill two birds w/one stone.

  2. That's no good - it makes too much sense.

  3. I've come back to this exchange twice and I still chuckle. Not because it's truly funny, but because your response is so absurdly true. And that makes it worth a chuckle.

  4. Of course you two ladies recognize easily the irony/reality of our situation.

    I guess most I associate with do not. Most of the conversations I have about "things" are here on the internets.

    Thanks for that T.

  5. I adore OF..he gets angry like moi and then types it all out for us to read. ;)

  6. Hello girls, Lets understand here that you two run classy joints but much different. I'm still learning from Teresa and Dusty what you've been putting up lately is the best and and I know I can trust your commentary. Not always but when I read what's in the links I agree most of the time.

    The stories you can weave T. are so much fun.

    You two bring quality using different methods. I have to be a smart ass because I find our situation so dire being serious and nice don't cut it. I have not used the f-bomb in awhile but it could happen. The use of the c word the other day Dusty was put to good use. I respect that! That and holy fuck a moly.

    Go read this girl. This is so good and she put something up that hit home to me and we've written back and forth about it and it was kinda about how people perceive bloggers.

    Cali transplant and is a neighbor kinda as she lives in Paonia. You know that strain of dis ting from years ago called Paonia Gold. Never tried it but heard many a story.

  7. OF..I LOVE her!!!! Thank you for sending me there. Gawd, she IS an awesome blogger and she uses plenty of cuss words to satisfy me too LOL.

    I am using the olde blog only to blogroll folks as I haven't created that section on my new blog yet. So I did blogroll her there.
