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.

Got Big Bucks Then This Obscenity Can Be Yours

Yea this can be yours for 6.77 mil and not only that there really is a shower stall for the buyers’ pooches in the four-stall garage where there is room left over for a boat and a garden tractor. The shower floor is elevated so that pet owners don’t have to strain their backs while using a flexible showerhead to hose the effects of mud season off their retrievers.

Even if I had cash money for this with billions left I would not buy something like this. Call me an asshole but I have major issues with structures of this size and dollar amount being called homes. I don't even know the people who may buy this but one thing is clear I'm not going to like them no matter how nice they are.Add Video

  1. Sure is nice that our good Congressmen changed the tax code so these pigs and the mortgage that goes with them is tax deductible. It was just a nice little gesture to say thank you for all those campaign contibutions. The idea was good ol' supply side econ to spur business activity in the rural areas like "empowerment zones" in the blighted areas of cities. So how's all that economic growth working out for ya? If 1000 middle-class voters pooled all their money could they buy even 20 minutes with the politician who guided this "gift" through the "hallowed halls of our great gov't"? Again, I'm not buying it.!!!

  2. Who has the time to clean all those rooms? Guess if you have the money to buy the place, then you have the money to pay people to maintain it. I'm with you on this One Fly. My house is relatively large for just two adults and what has happened is we filled it with stuff we don't need and now we are getting rid of this stuff we don't need. The plus side of the size is that there is plenty of room for the grandchildren and these little ones make life worth living.

  3. You could start a religious cult, plenty of room for your followers and a shower for them, too. :-p
