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.


Students With Guns - In Class And Loaded For Bear

So Colorado's supremes overrule CU's gun ban in Boulder and professors get to take it or else. Have to assume this applies to open carry as well if the college can not ban them in any form it seems.

Can you imagine a classroom where the students wear guns even if it's just one being displayed in that class?

This is where we're at these days and down the road there will be a price to pay for throwing common sense out the window to appease what manipulated people perceive as "freedom". This shit ain't right.

BOULDER — University of Colorado Chancellor Phil DiStefano notified the Boulder campus faculty Tuesday afternoon that professors "do not have the right to shut down a class or refuse to teach" should they learn that one of their students is lawfully carrying a gun under a concealed-carry permit.And, DiStefano added, any faculty members who do so will be in violation of their contracts and face disciplinary action.DiStefano's message comes a day after Professor Jerry Peterson, chairman of the Boulder Faculty Assembly, told the Camera that, under his own "personal policy," he plans to cancel class if he ever learns any of his students are carrying firearms. A Colorado Supreme Court ruling this spring overturned CU's Boulder campus gun ban, and university officials say that students with concealed-carry permits are allowed to bring guns into classrooms and labs. 

From a piece in the Boulder camera this morning as well.

This makes no sense.


  1. Great header!!! Where was that taken? What was it made of? Really cool...

  2. In Vernal at the museum which is real cool with all life size dinosaurs and much inside as well.

    There are a couple more from there here.


  3. Ooh those are fun! Especially liked the flower in the road.

  4. The only reason why a student should be allowed to carry a weapon into class is if they are an off-duty police officer, who are required to be armed at all times when in public.

  5. From one who knows. Thanks Pat.

  6. Your header is a blast! We haven't ever been to Vernal...now I think we need to go. Love the flower in the road!


  7. I think they should. Off duty police or or not. Students would CC anyway. I WOuld
