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.


Recall Recall - We Go Make You Pay

UPDATE: And they did just that as both were recalled.

You may be aware of the recall against two Democrats here in Colorado based on the pissed offedness of "my feelings and fear of loosin ma guns" people who got this on the ballot. Voting ends the 10th I believe. The petitioner's also fought and won not to have mail in ballots. This is not in my district but just up the road.

What the hell do I know but just saw this and was surprised.
Anti-recall groups have raised $3.1 million while pro-recall groups have raised $266,231. These numbers do not include non-profits that have raised and spent money in the recalls but do not have to disclose their contributions.
There is a pretty cool interactive map that shows all the contributions and who made them. The problem with contributions is found here blatantly showing how these bastards in DC screwed us as always. The "non-profits" don't have to disclose ya see. I'd pay 10 smacks to see that number in this case and would bet a 20 that number exceeds the 3.1 mil raised by the anti-recall effort and and is much more than "non-profits" raised for the anti-recall effort as well.

Not sure what can be concluded if anything from this. A paltry 266K is all? There was strong support from around the country for these two people under recall. I hope they are not but all summer long recall efforts were seen all over the place. 


  1. Money doesn't always do the talking. I really hope the recalls fail.

  2. It sure does TMoon and my message has always been that it's getting worse something few on the left have a clue about. I say that because "I'm just sooo negative" ya see.

  3. Your pictures have a way of taking the ordinary and making them look outstanding.


    1. It was the light Linda nothing special I did. Really!
