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.


Why Blagojebitch Types Continue To Crawl Out Of The Shitter

Because for instance Blugo says -

he might even try to subpoena President Barack Obama

The former governor spoke by phone from New York, where he was promoting his book, "The Governor." He started the day with an interview with WLS radio in Chicago and an appearance on NBC's "Today" show.

he might subpoena White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel, Senate Democrat Majority Leader Harry Reid and Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee Chairman Robert Menendeza

All these pieces of shit have to do to get attention is just that above and that then becomes news and is given instant credibility and that's why. This is not news.

A very reluctant link


  1. Illinois politics is certainly never dull. But the players are often just that. The guy should be called Bozo Blogo: the only thing lacking is a Burger King crown. Sell more books, keep the spotlight on for another day; what an asshole.

  2. We must separate governing our country from the entertainment business. Long ago our government operated without our elected representatives vying for face time on tv and promoting their books and whatever else they want to sell to make a buck.

  3. The motherfucker should already be in jail as we speak.

  4. Well said Russ, someone called the news these days "infotainment" politics are going the same way. The people in public office really are awful, contrived, self centered, egomaniacs. I went to a local council meeting a month or so ago, the Mayor seemed like a nice guy, but the councilors, what a bunch of sneaky, sly, untrustworthy, arrogant, good for nothings.

  5. and in bigger towns many have an agenda outside of what's best for the town.
