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.


Common Sense/Drug Policy - Is It Coming Together A Bit?

If this is true and adhered to this indeed will be a positive. Then let's move forward with a real discussion of legalization!

Federal drug agents won't pursue pot-smoking patients or their sanctioned suppliers in states that allow medical marijuana, under new legal guidelines to be issued Monday by the Obama administration.


  1. The more the Republicans are marginalized politically the better the hope for getting common sense into our legal system

  2. Perhaps a good first step would be to allow people to grow their own for private consumption. Let's get all these super gardeners out of the closet.

  3. But where will the CIA get funding for their extralegal covert "ops" around the world? I think decriminalization is the answer. Legalization will just " weed out" the mom and poppers and the small family farmers. Industrial hemp growing should be encouraged to ween us off deforesting the world just to keep our naughty bits clean and fresh smelling.

  4. I think this is a great start. I was wondering what the Republicans were going to do. They better legalize it fully and quickly so they can tax it and Republicans can see the big benefit!

  5. i've tried sending email via the addy you sent... mailer demon keeps rejecting!

  6. Hello in there and how are you? I'm thinking the average patriot today ain't worth much, how about you? " Pretty good, not bad; I can't complain: But actually all those Venuses are just about the same, I actually met a girl from Venus, whose insides were lined with gold"
