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.


What Paulson Really Means

Secretary Henry Paulson called the financial crisis now plaguing the world economy a "once or twice" in a 100 years event, even as he warned Thursday against imposing too-strict regulations to prevent a repeat calamity.

I'm so sick of these lying sacks of shit. Code words to his wall street whore buddies that he's doing all he can to insure there are no rules imposed so they continue to steal as usual. It makes no difference how many times it happens in 100 years it's here now and you and your asshole fellow thugs of the treasury are the main reason for it. Sonsofbitches! Get rid of this bastard.


  1. Read this post by Michael Prescott (no relation) about the uptick rule.
    Which also says loads about the foxes running the hen house.

  2. They are lying sacks of shit! This is far worse than once in 100 years and Greenspan purposely engineered it for Bush and as I keep saying the timing of the bankrupting of "our America" is no coincidence!
    I have to laugh! I was at Dusty's earlier thinking of you two and your beautiful headers because she had a beauty of the reflection of an arched bridge on a river. This one almost reminds me of the Rhine from Lorely!

  3. Plus, one of the reasons this was a once in a hundred years event is that there were regulations in place to prevent another one, at least until those regulations were deliberately crippled in the 1990s and the 2000s.

    Here's a list of the years of previous economic calamities of a similar nature that we've gone through: 1873, 1893, 1907, 1929. The longest period between them was 22 years. Since 1929, we'd gone almost 80 years without a collapse.

    "Too strict" regulations, my furry butt.

  4. What bothers me more than anything is that Paulson has never been 'for' the people...its all been about the financial bastards and keeping them afloat at any cost with our friggin money.

    Privatize the earnings, socialize the losses. Horseshit!

    I change my header daily btw. ;)

  5. paulson is a total ass -- just like ANYONE who works for bush. he obviously has no idea what he is doing -- but he does know he needs to take care of his WallSt buddies......

    mark my words - they will make it so much worse before Jan 20

  6. There's plenty more in store from these people before they leave. More shit is coming down the tube for sure.
