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.

An End Around To Get Catholics Closer To Eternal Happiness

The coaches are pulling this one out of an old play book to drum up interest in a waning old boys club. If you have never heard about indulgences take a second to glance at this article to get some idea. I could only get through the first page.

In recent months, dioceses around the world have been offering Catholics a spiritual benefit that fell out of favor decades ago — the indulgence, a sort of amnesty from punishment in the afterlife — and reminding them of the church's clout in mitigating the wages of sin.

The way these religious hypocrites talk about other beliefs when their own house is full of bullshit is beyond me. There is more mumbo jumbo associated with this church-not many others come as close.

  1. I disagree with a great deal with my denomination to comment on another, unless I refer to it in comparison as with my sister's funeral where it hit a little closer to home.

  2. Seeing that I have long accused Israel and the perverted religious right of trying to bring about the end of days and the diocese seems to be in cahoots with them this is bothersome!

  3. One thing stands out from those days PM and that was the funeral mass done in Latin. The songs that went along with it seemed to put me at ease - the tune not the words. Never minded those so much even though they were of course sad events.

  4. The article doesn't say how much they cost. Will we be able to buy them with out tax cuts?
