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.


Grand Junction Nutters Here We Come

My friend is up and intended to work on the roof today but it rained all night and will probably rain more today.

So instead we are for Grand Junction to observe and possibly counteract any dumb sonsofbitches that may be in vicinity of the venue where President Obama will be this afternoon.

I will not be wearing my hog leg but in this winger city if the nutters pull their shit there are going to be two guys at least who will let it be known that we support this president on health care for all of us and will not put up with the lies from the right.

Possible film at eleven.


  1. say hello to Barack and try to keep from getting a crease in your brain pan. Hope there's film, too. Vaya Con Dios, Senors.

  2. I wish I could be there with you. We lost one of our cats last night and I'm ready to share some pain and anger with damn near anyone, much less a stupid right-wing hate-inciting shit brain.

    condolences...kicking the living shit outta some bitrchin' birfer sounds like just the therapy you need...

  4. I don't don't know what a hog leg is, but it sounds pretty dangerous.

  5. It's American slang for a pistol, Holte Ender. And you're right.

    Good on you for going, One Fly. Just remember, though, if a wingnut has a bulge in his pants, it's not because he's happy to see you. Unless he's Larry Craig, or ...

  6. Intellect and common sense, which I'm sure you are packin', will be enough ammunition.

    Man, Vijay's blowing it and Tiger looks like he's in the zone to win.

  7. Looking forward to reading about the event.

  8. I just lost a very long response back to all of you who made the effort to post here. Bumped the mouse and it was gone so this has to be short because I am so tired.

    Thanks for taking the time to post here and hope you enjoyed a bit what I put up on this event. Wish I had another crack at it. My friend and I were a bit nervous but truthfully our side was much better. So hateful and mean and pointing fingers so much these people.

    The meeting in GJ was about health care and was is so disconcerting this evening when I sat down was seeing many places on the internets that Obama is giving up on the public option-WTF?? Just like that it's over??

    Giv'em hell my friends.

  9. Good for you!!!! I hope we get a post from you today on the outcome. I did watch the townhall on the tv. It seemed to be ok inside.
