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.



The level of hate the McFailin team and the GOP have been able to bring to the surface amazes me. This video has been put up before but I find it significant because in the animal world we are the only creatures who hate. If you have not seen this take a minute to do so as you will not be disappointed.


  1. I just can't look. I spent a couple of hours yesterday looking through some gun blogs, which I hadn't done in quite a while - those folks write some interesting and informative stuff - when they stick to guns.

    I guess I wasn't surprised by the trend toward the right, but I was shocked by some of the rants. Some of those folks are really frothing at the mouth with hate. It makes me sad because their attitude gives the anti-gun lobby more fuel for Their "crazies with guns" rants. It pisses me off that they think all Democrats are left wing commie socialist godless baby killing gun banning anti-America elitist gobs.

    So, I've had my dose of hate for now. I'm crossing my fingers that the election doesn't turn into a shit storm. Do keep your head down and watch your six.

  2. Love the video, but then I'm a big fan of irony.

    We're social creatures, but we didn't evolve as members of vast civilization. We evolved as little bands of animals that competed with other bands, and the other hominids, for survival. When you look at it that way, our current behavior makes more sense.

    Which isn't to say that it makes a whole lot of sense any way you look at it.

  3. The hate just gets worse every day as they fear losing the election! This is really sick!
    Watching all the underhanded efforts to keep Dems from the polls going on around the country today I have to wonder what the hell is next? They are not going to give up their mis agenda!

  4. Good points men.

    Maybe man didn't hate at first Cujo and it became part of us through the evolutionary process. That's interesting for sure but we sure do hate. We do that very well thank you.

  5. this is a party that has goon, thugs, brownshirts and skinheads left -- led by their very own eva peron -- or worse.

    i dont think the hate and vitriol will end on 11/4 --- it will only be the beginning
