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.


And That Be Me

More boomers are getting loaded these days.

Middle aged baby boomers are still turning on to illegal drugs forty years after Woodstock, doubling the rates of illicit drug use by the previous generation, according to a government study released on Wednesday.

But don't expect the White House to consider legalizing marijuana. "The discussion about legalization is not a part of the president's vocabulary under any circumstances and it's not a part of mine," Kerlikowske said in a telephone interview with Reuters in June.

And by the way assholes-put any label you want on this but get this straight. Just because pot happens to be my drug of choice does not make me any less of a person and get this straight too-I am not a fucking criminal!!

You feel the need to punish me then write the goddamn misdemeanor ticket and get the fuck out the way and my life. Sonsofbitches won't take a stance on legalization I got no time for ya.


  1. Big Pharma and Big Liquor have a monopoly on "drugs of choice" so don't expect them to support reform. Factor in the money the police, both local and feds, the prison builders and all the other vested interests make with the status quo and ... Oh wait, could the drug cartels be contributing to politicians' retirement funds? Do white cops and d.a.'s profile for unspoken political ends? Is Carl Rove in the N.Dakota Norwegian Hall of Fame? If you answered yes to any of these last 3 ?s you are paying to close attention to what's goin' down and need to take a break and get stoned.

  2. Then there is the nasty Big Tobacco.
