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.


May The Door Hit You In The Ass On The Way Out

Several retiring members of Congress close up shop early and close off accessibility.The website for Republican Sen. Wayne Allard of Colorado tells constituents he's no longer taking their comments. Republican Sens. Larry Craig of Idaho and John Warner of Virginia feature similar messages on their Web pages.Sen. Pete Domenici has gone even further. The Internet link to send an e-mail to the New Mexico Republican no longer exists. And a telephone call isn't much of an option.

Good riddance but you still have constituents who need assistance from you but are unable to contact you. You were assholes while in office and when you're gone you'll still be assholes!


  1. The local Roswell teevee station had a story a week or so ago about Pete closing his den of thieves. Tears were being shared by all of his long time employees. Tears because they were fired 2 months early.
    No body in New Mexico will miss him.

  2. That should be picked up and trumpeted by Democrats showing that the Republicans corrupted lied and now they are hiding, what does that tell you? them scum really pis me off and the worms will get away with it too!

  3. Guys this type of behavior illustrates just how bad they were in office too. So many more need to go to and that sure as hell includes Democrats as well.

  4. Makes you wonder, doesn't it? While I'm sure there are plenty of things best left for the new guys, there are just as surely things they could handle on their way out. Granted, they were voted out of office, but even assuming they're carrying a grudge, somewhere between 30 and 49 percent of their constituents voted for them. You'd think they'd at least care about them.

    Heck, if it were me, I'd enjoy collecting all those requests and then dumping them on the new guy (or gal), and saying "You handle this, Sunshine."

    Even if you have a sense of entitlement the size of theirs', you can still have some fun.
