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.


Edict From On High Delivered With Instructions

Crazy Catholic bishops voted to take this position on the health care bill bringing the dark ages stance on abortion into the foto.

This shit is supposed to be read from the pulpit during every mass in every church this weekend or some damn thing like that.

The bald headed chicken fucker you see here is the one who put the stamps on this and sent her out.

If only there were enough balls to enforce existing law so groups like this had to shut the fuck up like it's supposed to be.

There are reasons for that and it's obvious why they're needed.

jeebus christ anyway!


  1. I saw an extended discussion on this 2 days ago. What the bishops are trying to do is make the Hyde Amendment larger in its scope. Yes, this is an end run by the Church to inflict their dogma even deeper into women's lives of all faiths and non-believers, too. This is just another example of the " bullshit" that is passing for thoughtful, meaningful dialogue in the run-up to passing a badly managed Health Care bill. Obama has known this for months and will not pledge to fight for the "robust" form of the Public Option for this and other reasons. Americans will get less, pay more or be fined, have no more options than they do now and enrich the Private Insurance Companies. The current House legislation will only be further watered down by conference negotiations so expect to get more of this crap rubbed into your face. Pelosi lied to Kucinich and Weiner about floor votes on better and less expensive legislation. I have been so pissed for the last 48 hours by so-called Progressives and their cave-ins to the Corporate Death Machine: aka, Private Insurance Companies. As if we needed another glaring example of " Socialism for the rich, Free Enterprise for the poor and middle class", we got it this week in spades by the Majority Party. Why do we even bother to vote: let's just have the Corporitocracy tell us what they intend to make us do.

  2. The Catholic Church is probably registered as tax-exempt and there are responsibilities that go with that exemption, keep out of politics, or pay taxes like a regular mega-corporation.

  3. They're so moral over this issue and sweep pedophilia under the rug. Bastards at the top.

  4. as citizen's whose taxes support this government can't we force "our guys" to do something about this crap?

  5. I drive my 83 year old mother to church every Sunday and attend mass because it is more convenient to stay with her and sit through the mass than come home and go back and get her. The one thing I've noticed is that there is a declining attendance. Many of the people I grew up with attending Catholic school and going to church every Sunday are not there and can remember back to when the church was 3/4 full on Sunday as it is now 1/4 full and I do not see only 4 or 5 if my Catholic schoolmates in attendance. The whole mass thing is boring and serves no purpose for me personally but just don't need the aggravation of explaining to my mother why I don't see it as useful.

    As to the sex thing with the priests. They are for the most part good people and in any group you'll have some bas apples but to deny what is happening is no different than what the other religions do to keep the bad press to a minimum and keep the cash and people's trust flowing.

    At least I'm honest with, "ME".

  6. Ahhhh, the stupidity of the Catholic Church never ceases to amaze me.

  7. When Mexico had their revolution, the first thing the revolutionaries did was tell the Catholic Church, "you butt into politics again, we're gonna seize your properties." And when the Church did -- guess what?

    Maybe time to have some revolution here too, meow!

  8. We need changes in several critical area and we're not getting it nor are we going to anytime soon.
