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.


Accidental Cop Training Shooting - BULLSHIT METER PEGGED

"Deputy Smith removed the magazine from the pistol, and he manually worked the action by his account three times to make sure the weapon was safe," Gough said. "He then handed to gun to Sgt. Kiger to dismantle. Sgt. Kiger began to dismantle the firearm and it accidentally discharged, striking Deputy Smith in the hand."

The weapon in question was a Ruger Mark IV and when the clip is remover the trigger can not be pulled.

Somebody isn't telling the whole story and why was this pistol allowed to become so dirty? I have a Mark III and it would literally take thousands of rounds before there would be a problem.


  1. Wow wee. So the assholes are lying or what?

    PS...love the macro header today! ;)

  2. Gee nobody lies any more they are either misinterpreted or misunderstood. I wonder what the case was here?

  3. I don't have the answer guys but I do know for a fact if the clip is out of this particular weapon it's not supposed to fire.

    Papers make so many mistakes and we're not talking the intentional lies here. I am writing every person on the editorial board of the local fishwrapper just now about another matter and I wonder if there will be any response.

    We moved our flower pots inside Dusty and I like that picture as well. 28 this morning with snow on the ground and supposed to go down to the teens tonight. There won't be any more flower pictures from here posted the next day. Not until next spring. Bummer!!

  4. Aw..it's still warm here..mid80's to mid90's..so I can not relate to your current temps OF. ;p
