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.


All BS From The Beginning

You all know by now that it appears any type of health insurance that was going to compete against the big boys is off the table at the White House.

No use going on even a little bit except to say-from the very beginning this was never fucking ever going to happen. It just was not going to be allowed.

The powerful have more or less complete control over our elected officials in DC. Our vote means squat. We are so screwed!

The picture at the top spends another day in respect for this lovely young lady and her message that is ever so very true but is for naught.


  1. So true, the gatekeepers of Democratic Party are blocking health care. Maybe we should demand they swear allegiance to the Hippocratic Oath when they run for office: "First, do know harm...": especially to their own supporters. Wouldn't that be "change we could beieve in"? What whores!!!

  2. Huffpost has an article about the dems being worried about 2010, the spineless bastards should be.

  3. The insurance companies do not want their unjust monopoly to end. Obama is downplaying the importance of the public option. If he can make it impossible for insurance companies to turn you down for a pre determined condition or from capping you I think that would be acceptable but I would still like to see all those covered that can not afford it.

  4. Today in Oregon at a Senior Center Congressman Kurt Schroder (D) tried to talk about health care reform to a crowd composed of mostly people over 65 and birthers,etc. The old women screamed no gov't takeover: then they left to cash their dead husbands' pension and go to the doctor for their monthly Medicare check. What a bunch of dried up old bitches!!! I hope they choke on their bran&coffee tomorrow morning while waiting for the stool softener to kick in.

  5. Sadly, I think you're right. Damn!
