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.


Read It And Be Prepared To Weep Some More

And this is in just the state of Colorado!

This weekend set a record for all single-day background check submittals in Colorado for potential gun purchases

Assault-style rifles were the most popular gun over the weekend/multiple customers were examining rifles like the model police say was used in the shootings at an Aurora theater and on Friday in Connecticut. 

For me to think that there will be any significant positive changes in this country's gun culture/mentality and the results from that would be more than being simply naive. You can hope yes but damage done and getting worse. How that sucks to say that!


  1. Americans have been conditioned by the rabid right-wing to distrust the Government completely. Not to question authority but to actively undermine governmental institutions and functions.

    Gun Nuts want Anarchy. They want the ability to rise up when the country collapses and shoot the Moochers and Liberals who had stolen their country from them.

    Unrestricted Gun Violence is going to destroy us. And for lunatic conservatives to go on their blaming tantrums, video games, lack og fod, abortion when we have 250,000,000 guns and rising in this country shows how prepping the mind with lies and falsehoods has prepared us for our own destruction.

  2. I would not argue against that TMoon - nor would I with your very strong observations GG. I happen to agree in that it appears to me the scenario you foresee can easily happen. These bastards want to shoot badly - very badly.

    Several things could start that process quickly whether by man/nature or media itself. These media zombies could whip these sheep into a killer frenzy if they wanted. They really could. I try not to go that far because people don't want to here this and they clam up on you or end friendships.

    1. FB is driving me crazy! I've "unfriended" one already. I realized that she had to be nuts and simply don't want any association with her. Can't stand the media, as you know, they don't report, they manipulate. Why in the world don't the sheep see it? I'm no physic, but can predict what's coming...

  3. If only someone could just suspend all the background checks until cooler heads prevailed. And if only pigs could fly. Barry sure does leave a lot undone when it suits him.

  4. If only the other nine amendments of the Bill of Rights had as many dedicated followers as the second does.

  5. Isn't this something everyone. It's plain to see not much can or will happen to "change" things. I'm getting tired of that word.

    I look at this too as a societal thing and our society wants it like this with little logical discussion. There will be some now though. Logic will have a hard time prevailing.

    The media part of it is maybe the biggest in that they made the fear and it was done on purpose.

    I see exact parallels with Climate Change in that it's over the top and do not think there's much of a chance of getting it back.

    Neither can be sustained at this level without and use your own level of word here _______ consequences.

    You can include how our government works in here too.

    Few get it.

  6. 4 more dead in Colorado by gun violence, apparently from a domestic dispute shooting. That is the true legacy of handgun kept in the home for self defense.

  7. I saw somewhere that this guy had just gotten out of jail but not sure it's true.

  8. It's true.

    LONGMONT — Investigators were unable to immediately determine when a shooter purchased a gun used to kill three people, including his ex-girlfriend, who was on the phone with a 911 dispatcher when she was killed.

    The gunman who had just been released from jail on domestic violence charges then shot and killed himself Tuesday, Weld County Sheriff John Cook said in an Associated Press story. Investigators searching the gunman's home found the original box the handgun had been sold in, but they did not find a receipt, and it was unclear when he bought it, Cook said.
