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.


Wingers Can't Decide What Bush Is

A writer for the National Review goes back a 100 years for a quote to describe Bush.

“He flung himself from the room, flung himself upon his horse and rode madly off in all directions.”

That prompted an angry response by Michael Gerson, Bush’s former White House speechwriter, in The Washington Post in defence of the “compassionate conservatism” of his boss.

This came from an article about Bush's third of a billion dollar library and how history will look at him.

After Obama says "I do" I hope he drop kicks Bush's sorry ass all the way to Dallas to prepare to take his rightful place in the corner of his library with the dunce cap on.


  1. I think it's hilarious that Laura is putting out a memoir, but the publisher is tell W. to wait five years as nobody would want to read it now. I'm not too sure about then either.

  2. I hope the property taxes go out the roof where that morons library is and bankrupts the whole town so they end up foreclosing on the sonofabitch.
    THAT would be justice.
