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.

Scratch One Coal Fired Power Plant

A Montana utility is dropping plans for a 250-megawatt, coal-fired power plant near Great Falls and will instead build a smaller natural gas plant and some wind turbines, company officials said Monday.

In the past two years, at least 78 coal projects have been canceled or put on hold, according to the environmental advocacy group Source Watch.

The writing is on the wall for some of these utility companies that coal is not the answer. 900 mil compared to 200 million for natural gas and wind. Costs more to produce power but people are willing to pay a bit extra for cleaner energy.

  1. WTF! Just saw a commercial Monday praising the benefits of "clean coal." (Mostly that it is available in America.)
    I have yet to see any data supporting the BS idea that coal is "clean." Are the utilities dropping the idea of being able to meet emission requirements? Not tooo long ago, ending pollution from coal-fired plants was expensive but do-able.
