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.


That Hurt

I don't even give a shit and saw this Manning fellow run a few plays for the first time the last playoff game. Da BIG game is over and talk about even more than just an old ass kicking. One thing can be said is that this morning south of Federal Blvd. in Denver there is no one talking bout da Super Bowl (winning one that is) like they do the rest of the 364 days of the year.

Hell I'm embarrassed just being from Colorado.  


  1. Don't worry.

    If I know CO fans, they'll be talking about next year next week.

    Love ya,


  2. That was rough! I did text my son, yesterday, to see if he was having a Chiefs Super Bowl party and then also commented that, "Ooh that's right, the Chiefs didn't make it to the Super Bowl...again! (he's a huge Chiefs fan) and got a rude reply from him. Funny!!! I don't follow football except I get enough info to torment friends and family who do.

  3. I quit watching football in about 1985. And when I say, 'quit', I mean 'QUIT!'

  4. Peyton Manning is a limp dick! When the pressure is on - he has an absolute uncanny ability to limp dick the whole damned exercise.

    1. It's the real thing although a few years ago this very side of the building had stabilization work done to it.

  6. Something like what happened isn't fun to watch for most. It a diversion from the real issues but this is what we want.
