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.

Big Bertha Is Still Needed

Callaway Golf Company Announces Increase in 2008 Earnings. We are very pleased that we were able to deliver a 6% increase in pro forma earnings per share in a very difficult economic environment.

Well to do people like spending a lot of money on golf clubs and such even though they can't hit the fucking ball. The trickle down shit storm I don't think has reached many in the high end market of this game. We'll see what happens as we get closer to spring.

  1. Hey man, don't knock my favorite clubs. They've made the profit by moving their manufacturing to Mexico and closing it down in Arizona. The bulk of their profit would also come from the Top Flight division which is lower end products.
    Lots and lots of baby boomers picking up the clubs right now.

  2. They do make a good product for sure. Didn't know they outsourced. I'll remember that.

    Somebody gave me some type of Callaway 3wood. Couldn't hit it worth a shit. Gave it to a friend who is a very good stick and he didn't like it either.

    The technology in equipment makes a difference but it's expensive. I need a driver but don't want to spend much. Can get it at cost but it's still too damn much. I don't carry a driver and hate the giant headed ones. There are a couple smaller ones that I can hit fairly well. I need 30yds bad off the tee.
