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.


On da BIG Game

Didn't watch it and haven't for years. I could give a shit but - in Denver the way it works now that the Ravens won fans will and you can bet your life on this - saying they got beat by the best team and south of Federal parts north east and west Donk fans are talking Superbowl already for next season.

They aren't over the depression felt after they lost the last BIG game and are gearing themselves up for more disappointment.


  1. I watched the game. Had everyone over for the food. I wished I hadn't watched it, because of that daggum commercial. Always enjoyed Paul Harvey, but using that god commercial to sell a dodge p/u just pissed me off...

  2. Most the time they're a disappointment. It's all about the lead up and selling the nonsense - no more.

  3. Sorry...I loved the commercial...had several emails telling Terry and I THANKS for being farmers with commercial included. Rather humbling, I thought.


  4. lol You lost me after 'but'.

    1. meaning since they won a superbowl a couple times that's all that's on their minds. They start talking about it as soon as the last game of the season is over. Denver is an unusual sports market.

    2. That photo of the flower has my beauty/peace button on overload. Sports?

      What did you say?

  5. Sorry 'Fly, but being a Raiders fan, I hope the Broncos never win another game. Unfortunately for my hapless Raiders,though, as long as Denver has "Ol' Broke Neck" (Sarge's christening), my Raiders are assured of at LEAST two ass whuppin's a year!
    Reckon what everyone will watch when it becomes the National Flag Football League?

  6. If both teams could lose we'd all be better off. The most important thing is that Dallas get their asses kicked as often as possible.

  7. Tis, the Sergeant formerly from Indianapolis,
    Fuck Peyton Manning in the ass with sand and gravel on Sunday before MASS! Give INDY and Luck to gel a team and
    watch out!
    I was glad to see Ray Lewis retire with a Super Bowl Ring - he earned it!
    Now, Beyonce was fantastic! There is no doubt in my mind that the woman could raise an erection on a dead
    Budweiser won the ad war with the horse.

    IU is #1 in the AP poll.

    Life is good...

    UE Aces - maybe the dance...

  8. I ceased being a 'fan' of anything when I discovered that 'fan' was short for 'fanatic'.
