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.

Do you wish you were back in the land of cotton-do ya?

JENA, La. - About 50 white separatists protested the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday.
It lives on not only there but everywhere the difference being they're very proud and vocal about being bigots. Fuck the South and the many of the people that live there. I don't even know them and I don't like them. Apologies to those who are aware but I have a major problem with people who wear and flaunt their stupidity as a badge.

Ran across a friend briefly today and the conversation included MLK and Bill Moyers who is a hero to her too. He is a southerner all should aspire to. Last Friday on the Bill Moyers Journal he tells the story where he is present in the Oval Office when MLK and LBJ discussed civil disobedience and the direction LBJ wanted to go. In the end LBJ gave his blessing to Dr. King. Moyer's comment I believe was prompted by the way the press framed H. Clinton's statement on Dr. King. Here is Moyer's short story that is such a excellent one!

What's significant here is that the story is history plus it's true. Not the shit the whore pundits spew out of their pie holes or off their keyboards with the only intent to reframe and divide. You assholes! It's no wonder people all over this country are just as stupid as those in the South.

  1. I want to point out a very little known fact to you and your readers,.
    You have been to Coos Bay Or, yes?
    Back in the early part of the 1900's, say the 30's, Coos Bay was The Headquarters for the KKK on the West Coast.
    It ain't just the south my friend, they migrate too.

  2. Let's not forget that Oak Creek was a hotbed of KKK activities, cross burning, sheet wearing, hate spewing, etc., and as a matter of fact times haven't changed all that much, still a lot of hate mongering going on...

  3. The Klan played a major political role in Colorado too plus there were many in this immediate area.
