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.


Pelosi Open to Prosecution ????

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is receptive to the idea of prosecuting some Bush administration officials, while letting others who are accused of misdeeds leave office without prosecution, she told Chris Wallace in an interview on "FOX News Sunday."

I don't know about you guys but I will believe this after it's done and the door to the slammer is locked and not until then.


  1. I agree One Fly..plus, how will she determine who gets tried and who doesn't?

  2. They've had eight years to do something, or at least to more-or-less unanimously suggest that something be done. The obvious question people will ask is "Why now?" The obvious answer would seem to be, "Because it's no longer dangerous to them." At least, that's the most flattering obvious answer.

  3. I don't disagree but I find the reason lame when it comes to treasonous dastardly deeds.

    It probably comes from the judiciary Dusty and that's an assumption only. I'll be all boned up on that as conviction appears imminent.

  4. The other thing to keep in mind about Pelosi's seeming reversal is that her branch of government isn't the one that will be doing the investigating any more. Now the executive branch, the DoJ in particular, will be doing that job. IOW, Pelosi is saying "Do the job I wasn't willing to do personally" to Obama.

    Please note that this in no way means that I think the DoJ shouldn't investigate. It should. It should investigate anyone who willingly participated in illegal wiretapping, extralegal imprisonment, and torture. But then, I thought Pelosi should have impeached Bush for ordering those things when she had the power.

  5. Dems have only had the powerof subpoena for two years. Voices crying in the wilderness are seldom heard unless they are amplified by automatic gunfire. Pols are rarely leaders, even house speakers. We must demand justice and an eye for an eye in this instance. Nothing less than full prosecution will rebalance our tilted scales of justice.
