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.


Did I Read This Right??

This is an example of what we need to hear from our new president in respect to our second war front.

PRESIDENT Barack Obama has demanded that American defence chiefs review their strategy in Afghanistan before going ahead with a troop surge. Larry Korb, a defence expert at the Center for American Progress, a Washington think tank, said: “Obama is exactly right. Before he agrees to send 30,000 troops, he wants to know what the mission and the endgame is.”

Follow through on this Barrack and illustrate to these out of control pentagon bastards just who the fuck is in charge here. Speak for the people the ones who put you in office who want us out of these places as soon as possible.

Put together a plan for Bin Laden and when that is finished bring these men home as it should be. Be the change that lets the voices of the people be heard. Changes you spoke so eloquently about hundreds of times. The voices of war and death do not speak for the people and the last eight years are proof positive they have no credibility.

I like the feeling of hope early on a Sunday morning. Please make it so!


  1. President Obama is the Commander in Chief and he is the Decider in Chief and the sooner these Busholinis at the Pentagon understand that the better.

  2. I have to laugh! So what if they advise like Nixon's advisers did, that it can't be won militarily. It will change nothing. They can't say forget it then. We are screwed here too compliments of Bush!

  3. Sanity is something new at the Pentagon
