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.


Nutter Mania

Time will only tell what these whack jobs are up to now but you can damn well bet with Palin it ain't going to be good. Very possibly they are ramping up for something possibly very bizarre to us and normal to them.

Been two days since I've put anything up but there is a parade today and the local nutters will be out in force after that on the court house lawn with their 1773 nonsense. We'll see how long I can swallow this shit but I'm going to be on the fringe just to see for myself in person for real just how fucking imbeccillian these people are. Maybe I can get something good to share.

Right now I'm headed to work not to do that but to attempt to take some pictures in a non-work situation. Then I get to see a monster fireworks display tonight. It will be monster cause I haven't seen any in years so it'll all be gravy.

Here's another picture of this horse fly from a couple days ago. This is too much.

Have a fun and safe 4th!!


  1. Love your header and the fly pic is neat!

    As for Sarah..we can only hope she is going down for something. I really hope this marks the beginning of the end for her.

  2. What is the 1773 nonsense that you are referring to?

    The pictures you take are amazing. As for Sarah Palin... she just proved that she can't piss with the big dogs.

  3. It's the tea-bagger thing Cat's.

  4. Thanks. There wasn't any teabagger events worth mentioning in PA. Strange since part of PA is known as Pennsyltucky. Though that part of the state is sparsely populated. It's very rural and besides, they were having way too much fun with their guns so they wouldn't have time to attend a teabagging event.
    Hope your 4th was enjoyable.
