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.


Barack HUSSEIN Obama

From Russ over at al Qaeda in Albuquerque. This is good stuff and I agree. There are ways to shut these wingnut loons mouths over issues that have no bearing and this is an example. Posted in it's entirety. Thanks Russ.

Unlike a fair number of "progressive" commentators, I have no problem with McCain's surrogates emphasizing Sen. Obama's middle name: HUSSEIN.

When Sen. Obama takes the Presidential oath of office next Jan, we'll be routinely treated to headlines featuring the middle name - let's get used to it!!!

Rather, I AM distressed that Sen. Obama hasn't stepped up to put an end to this silliness:
"We're facing the biggest financial crisis in a generation, and my respected Republican opponent is trying to scare you with my middle name!!!"
... There are any number of variations on this theme Candidate Obama could play.

If Candidate Obama were feeling particularly vicious, he could follow up, "... they're trying to scare you with my middle name", with something along the lines of...
"Over the past 8 years our Republican leaders have relentlessly used FEAR to justify the most disastrous policies in our history...

They - the Republicans, including my respected Republican opponent - have nothing else to sell: only FEAR!

I believe we - Americans - are better and stronger than that... that is why my campaign has consistently offered hope for the future..."
... again, I'm not Candidate Obama's speech-writer, but I do wish someone on his staff would suggest this tactical response to the fear-mongering invocation of what is, after all, the Candidate's name!

Have a nice day.
