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.

I Want Ma Gun Now!

There are about 13,000 applications for the purchase of new guns waiting to be approved here in Colorado and this is just one market.

There is a wait time and the CBI is asking the state legislature for 500K so people don't have to wait as long for their new assault weapons.

Give me a break.

As of 7 p.m., Saturday, CBI listed 12,797 checks in queue with a wait time of seven days. CBI listed 1,643 checks as processed on Saturday. The CBI has asked lawmakers for $500,000 to help handle the backlog.

  1. How bout if they pay for their own checks???...and insurance in case the kill/maim someone, or have an "accident" ...and fees in case they lose their guns to theft. ...and fees for extra security at schools, malls, churches, theaters. ...and gee I could think of all sorts of fees that could be added on (to make this a safer country, of course!) Cast is off, but the hand is very stiff and sore.

  2. Maybe we could erase the debt and save our Social Programs on the back of a Gun Tax .... sayyyy .... 10 Grand for hand guns, 20 Grand for assault weapons, and let's not forget ammo ... how 'bout 5 bucks a bullet?

  3. That makes sense of course but what is sensical in this country these days.

    It's better though and your hand will shape up quickly I think. Good!

  4. I find the current feeding frenzy for guns (mostly assault) very telling. Merica wants this shit bad! I've got no problem with gun lovers footing much of the bill for the carnage that comes with it.

    I also understand very few changes will be made.
