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.

Electric And High Mileage Vehicles Have Been Possible For A Long Time

They just would not do it and they have failed miserably. The CEO's got their ass handed to them in Congress and feel so guilty gave up private jets and are driving cars back to Washington.

Below are two examples of what's being done now. One a private enterprise and the other by Ford its self in Europe. Not saying these two are the solution only that if they had wanted we could have had even better affordable vehicles running around all over our country if only they had even given just a bit of a shit. A crash program on super efficient affordable vehicles better be part of the deal for saving their sorry asses.

Aptera’s $26,000 Electric Car and 300 MPG Hybrid Coming Soon

Published on September 9th, 2008

Back in July, Ford released the details of a new Fiesta it plans to begin selling this November. The new car is based on Ford’s ECOnetic platform and can get 63 mpg in the city and 73 mpg on the highway. So why is it only available in Europe? It’s a diesel, and Ford doesn’t think Americans will ever adopt diesel cars.

  1. Sometimes I think the heads of Ford and GM want the companies to fail. Chrysler was taken over by a consortium with Dan Quayl on it, what does that say?

  2. not only that, but how much tax monies does the state collect from the selling of fuel? if we drove cars that don't eat up fuel then they lose a source of easy revenue. they don't want that!
