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.


Pussy's In The Pentagon

A Pentagon official told The New York Times: “Any time the Russian Navy does something out of the ordinary, it is cause for worry.

You have more guns and bullets than anyone else in the world pass all and the Russky's show up with a couple submarines and it's "shades of the cold war". We do this shit all over but we have to worry about this now. Probably time for some new submarines or new tracking devices. We'd have money for that -you betcha.

The good thing is that shooter Cheney and the whore Bolten aren't screaming they need to be blown out of the water.


  1. It's August: time for all the wackos on the right to get hot and sweaty about "military vigilance". So the Russians are within 200 miles 1) we must keep overfunding DOD 2) we cannot afford health care reform (See 1) 3) we cannot afford more stimulus money (See 1) 4) we cannot afford Middle East peace process (See 1) 5) We can only afford to go into debt to overpay Blackwater, prop up Karzai, give Pakistan billions, India advanced military weapons,etc (See 1) 6) We cannot afford health care reform (See 1). 7) We cannot afford,etc, etc,etc,...(See 1). Your taxes go for what? (See 1). Have a great August.

  2. That's my guess. The SecDef's clear priorities now are for things that will help the efforts in Iraq and Afghanistan. Stuff like shiny new destroyers and subs is taking a back seat, or being dropped entirely. Gotta ratchet up the fear a little.

    This is an interesting development, with some implications for the future, to be sure. I'm not too worried about this yet, and I'm something of a worry-wart. Part of the job of any military is to test out their equipment and tactics. It's pointless to have those weapons if you don't have any idea whether they work or how you should use them. IOW, we do this stuff all the time, and the world hasn't ended. There's a long road between these developments and real trouble. Take that for what little it's worth.

  3. bolten is too busy wishing journalists stay locked up to worry about subs

    that guy is the world's biggest asshole - i hope his kids get stuck in a gulag
