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.


This Site

An idea in the beginning also a bit of an experiment with little participation locally. Statistics prove that. This never came close to what constitutes a forum in a failed attempt to raise awareness locally. Thus this will no longer be the Oak Creek Forum but just another blog among the tens of millions out there on the internets. Disappointed-not even a little bit. If one makes the choice to visit fine that's appreciated. Choose to not visit that's fine too. Feel offended-tough shit it's the internets start your own. Can not be nice to those who condone and assist in perpetual war nor those in government that lie to us continually. No petty ass rumor mill here you can bet on that.

What is important is not what is on this piss ant site that on a good day generates 20 hits a day but things like this said continually, bloviated by the war loving pundits and conventional media who in the end support the idea Iran is a threat to the world when the the truth of the matter is the opposite. Stuff like that. Election in 'O8 don't count on it. Will it be fair you can bet it won't be. Should there be concern and is there any? There's much concern about who invented the internets and the drug and alcohol addled Spears family. There's not much concern that several Republican presidential candidates believe man lived at the time of dinosaurs and that they want to be in charge of the most powerful nation in the world.

This needs to be said over and over. There is a reason 12 million people around the world
3/15/03 marched in protest about what our county was about to do in Iraq. We did so because we knew it was for lies. Our source of information did not come from conventional media in this country and the same thing is happening in respect to Iran. I will not accept this with out voicing dissent.

If the corporations gain control of this medium which they want so very badly all the millions of sites such as this will be difficult at best to view if at all. It's the blogosphere this incredible place similar to the universe because of its size and diversity. Something like 70% use e-mail exclusively for circulating humor. There is nothing humorous about events in my country since 2000 not a thing.

Enough of this serious shit
