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.

Lying POS Elk Killing Cop Convicted On All Counts

And as it should be. The information reported after this happened indicated to me this prick was guilty as hell.

May he never be allowed wear a badge again and never be able to own a gun.

May he also receive the maximum sentence.


From the moment a photo of a dead elk surfaced, the Boulder community has been captivated by the animal's fate and the hunt for what really happened on Mapleton Hill on Jan. 1, 2013.
After just a few hours of deliberation Tuesday, a Boulder County jury came to the same conclusion investigators did: Then-police officer Sam Carter plotted the kill and then used his badge to try to cover it up.Carter was found guilty on all nine counts — including four felonies — filed against him after a weeklong trial.

    2. I did the walking tour on my bike and just reread the pamphlet and saw no mention of this. Missed something someplace. Pretty interesting all in all.

    1. It was the bar where most of it occurred. This was a go to p[lace for quite a few known well icons of the West. It's just a 100 miles from here.

  4. He certainly seems to be posing in that photo, doesn't he? No more shocking or senseless to me than the ubër riche who 'trophy hunt' big cats, elephants, rhinos and such, but when a member of the community is murdered, like Big Boy, there, dood needs an ass whuppin' to go along with the weapons ban and jail time.

  5. Glad for the jury, I never try to get out of jury duty, I want to set the innocent free and shut the door on the evil do'ers.

  6. Yes he's posing and as proud as a pig in shit for his big kill he had been fantasizing about for some time.

    It remains to be seen everyone if the judge steps up to the plate and gives this prick a sentence WE can be proud of.

    Odds are he will not - I mean he has a badge and a gun and we all know most of the time these people are above the law unfortunately.

    This is why they kill at will these days and are almost always exonerated. I stay so far away from these people I tell you.

  8. Good call on the part of the jury. If a police officer is willing to commit crimes such as this; as disgusting as this is, other crimes he may commit down the line may very well have been much worse.

    If you're going to pin on a badge you simply must behave with integrity and this guy has NONE

    1. Thanks Boomer! I looked at all of them close just in case something else might have been in there.

  10. A cop can't get away with killing an elk. It's not like he's an unarmed black guy or something.
