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.


God May No Longer Be Allowed To Help Homeland Security In Kentucky

A group of atheists filed a lawsuit Tuesday seeking to remove part of a state anti-terrorism law that requires Kentucky's Office of Homeland Security to acknowledge it can't keep the state safe without God's help. Of particular concern is a 2006 clause requiring the Office of Homeland Security to post a plaque that says the safety and security of the state "cannot be achieved apart from reliance upon almighty God"

You can bet this is pissing a lot of people off down there in Kantukey for sure. Maybe someday a bunch of aliens will zoom in to all the capitals in the world and declare all those who believe in an invisible cloud being/finger snapper crazy as loons.


  1. One of my favorite fantasies. . .

  2. We could have gotten some mileage outta that one jeg.

  3. The whole God issue stymies me! I am a Christian but get real! Get real! More power to the Atheists!

  4. I'm just imagining armies of terrorists at the border of Kentucky, ready to swarm into the state as soon as this law is struck down. In my mind's eye, quite a few of them resemble Yosemite Sam for some reason ...

  5. LMAO @ Cujo's Yosemite Sam reference. ;)

  6. He's one of my favorites. I can't remember ever meeting anyone from Kentucky.
