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.


He Ha Mosey Up To The Bar And Have Yourself A God

The Baptist General Convention of Texas has launched about 140 cowboy churches since 2000. A few months ago the Cowboy Church of Mobile, Alabama, started meeting at a nightclub called The Whiskey on one Sunday each month — when the bar is normally closed for business.

The values equated with this lifestyle are continually touted as something that others don't have. There's a lot of narrow mindedness within this very small group and the idea that this way of life is better than others is a fallacy. Incorporate a cloud being into it and it gets worse.

OTC calls bullshit on that and also those who believe in a invisible cloud being are somehow better than those who believe otherwise. Just ain't so.

So belly up to the bar and have yourself a Curs-Curs Light-He Ha!!


  1. I wonder if some of the members of the church don't bother going home on Saturday night?

  2. Never thought of that-good one and probably so.

  3. I wonder if they get a discount if they start speaking in tongues.
