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.

Somewhere There Has To Be A Connection

 Plenty pulice training going on.

The training will be attended by about 40 officers from the Steamboat, Oak Creek and Hayden police departments, Routt County Sheriff’s Office, Colorado State Patrol, Colorado Parks and Wildlife and the U.S. Forest Service.

Three days worth including "active-shooter scenarios". Classes in the morning and the other half of the training will involve practicing scenarios.

From the day to day doings of Ski Town USA. It must of been the scenario practice that covered pee recognition.

Thursday, March 20, 2014#Police, fire and ambulance calls#1:41 a.m. Steamboat Springs Police Department officers were called to a report of a man urinating at a bus stop at Lincoln Avenue and Fifth Street. Officers found evidence of urination, but the man was gone.

Footwear And Colorado

If at all active outdoors plenty of different types are needed. At least here there is not an extended mud season but a lot of little ones that last for short periods.

These are not mine.

A Decent Chuckle

The only thing lacking here is that if all the motorcycles would have fallen over like dominos. Other than that it's got everything for more than one chuckle.

There will never be any chuckle videos here that show people obviously getting hurt badly. Mercan's find humor in that and there are a number of tb programs that do so and numerous other sources as well. This fellow in my opinion hurts himself at an acceptable level to show this but the fact of the matter he could have easily been killed at one point.

 It's just plain funny.

Good News If It's True

Not wishing the bad on anyone but if this fellow exits this world we will all be better off.

Cheezburger Cheezburger

Actually more like fish taco. In town there is one chain burger establishment. A while back went in and got myself a plain old cheezburger. I'll take it just the way it comes.

I will say that one tasted better than the other two major burger players but just like theirs got about half way and couldn't take anymore. Shit canned the rest.

So - - - this place here put fish taco's on the menu. I want fish most of the time but never get it much. Just a bit ago gave one a ride. Here it is just like it comes.
Wasn't bad necessarily but sure wasn't that good either and sure as hell wasn't worth $2.58. Buck ten maybe? Better than their burger because the whole thing got eaten but that ain't saying much.

Went from there directly across the street to this small office supply business run by this very nice lady to buy paper to write short letters to people and I ran across this.

I had just pulled out this Kente bag(link)to show a friend a day or so ago. Kente is West African cloth. Very special stuff. Mine is Ewe and the Wiki link speaks of Ashanti/Akan Kente. Bought the three pads of this she had.

This is what goes on in my world as things warm up and blossoms can be seen even if some are weeds. That and what the future may hold - hopefully anyway. Looking forward to all of it.

News As It Is Now

Pretty much the way it appeared this morning from this "news source" in Colorado Springs. It's probably pretty much the same where you live.

Not only are we watching out planet die but society as well. I don't give a shit this is NOT the way it's supposed to be.

Capitalism will not be denied!
