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.


Can't Parallel Park-Worries Over Buy A Lincoln

Some luxury Lincoln models will include an automatic parallel parking feature next year. Ford has not yet announced pricing for the feature, part of a push to bolster the Lincoln brand, which the company sees as critical to its success in the U.S. market.

Seriously if you can not park your car you should not be allowed behind the wheel.

More importantly Ford don't you think you should be focusing on other areas given your shitty financial situation.

The success of your company has nothing to do with the ability of your luxury Lincoln log with wheels to park it's self.

Put the people on the line in charge and you may have a chance.


  1. I agree. The same with Onstar -- if you don't know where you are get a map, if you can't read a map get off the road.

  2. Another example that explains why they are loosing money. Fuck 'em all.

  3. Ford's financial position is actually not that bad, it's on par with Toyota's. As for Lincoln and the parallel parking feature, if it sells cars, Ford is all for it. Same deal with OnStar and Cadillac. If it sells cars... shrug.

    Remember, nobody *needs* four wheels. A motorcycle with a sidecar could do everything that the typical person does with a car. Back in Soviet days half of Siberia got around that way year-round (you can still buy one of those as the "Ural" motorcycle, beloved of folks here with more money than sense as "two-wheel drive ATV"). People *want* four wheels because of issues like comfort and convenience.

  4. There is so much that could and should be done to give people options for cheaper transportation.

    Automatic parking is not one of them.
