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.


It Takes A Special Breed Of Cat To Do This

This is close buy. Not one or a couple but 13. Appears who did it will get away with it as there is not one lead.

The Huerfano County Sheriff’s Office is looking for thoseresponsible for the shooting and killing of 13 horses northeast ofGardner. Sheriff's deputies reported that the horses were found in lateDecember scattered throughout an area north of Colorado 69 nearCounty Road 620.2. The owner of the horses reported they went missing after heturned them out on property he leases. A report states that the horses were shot in differentlocations and found scattered throughout the area.


  1. There's a big problem with folks not being able to feed their horses in this bad economy, and things... happening... to the horses. Not saying that's what happened here. Still, it's like, when there's a murder, you always look at the husband/wife *first* before lookin' for some stranger. Just sayin'.

  2. This is a local for sure Tux. No outsiders are going up in this area particularly to shoot horses.

  3. The person(s) responsible for this craven act of animal cruelty should be strung up and shot.

    I take no prisoners when it concerns animal cruelty.

    If anyone harmed my dog I would hunt your ass down to the ends of the earth to get cha.

  4. I agree with Chris.

    And then some.

  5. I agree with all the above!!! I don't tolerate animal cruelty at all. And, I'd look at the owners very carefully... :(

  6. Means, motive, opportunity:

    Means: The person needed to have the following:
    1. A horse trailer (assuming he didn't ride the horses to where he shot them).
    2. A rifle
    3. The ability to handle a horse at least well enough to get him into the horse trailer.

    Hmm, horses are very expensive to feed, and dead horses don't eat anything.

    If the field is leased to you, you have infinite opportunity to drive your trailer up to the field and load a horse into it. Nobody would even make note of it.

    So who has means, motive, and oportunity? Hmm... just sayin'.

  7. I hope they shoot and then ask questions! SICK!
