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.


He's Back - Tell Me It Ain't So

So many have their hopes up for a quality HCB but when I see this it tells me it will not be close to what is needed and what we put these people in office for.

"He is loved by his colleagues on both sides of the aisle. (South Carolina Republican Sen.) Lindsey Graham comes up and gives him a massive hug. He has great working relationships with members on both sides, because people see him as a team player and a centrist."

I don't want a centrist position. This asshole voted for the corporations while in the senate time and time again. Biden is there as well. Couldn't read all the bullshit in this article.


  1. The Senate bill for HC is very compromised already. By sending in The Mod Squad it will be even more so. It is way past time that we reduce the number of states to 40 or so. Combining the Dakotas with Nebraska would be good start. Kansas and Oklahoma, next. We need to remember that the little backward states are holding back the heavily populated, progressive states. If a state's population doesn't represent at least 1% of the 340 million Americans in this country it shouldn't get 2 votes. The exception of course would be Oregon and Iowa which should get at least 3 votes because their citizens are so smart and the women are so beautiful.

  2. A wise old activist explained to me years ago the difference between a Republican, a Democrat and a Progressive. A poor soul has slipped off a cliff and hangs 10 feet below the edge of plunging to his death. A Republican comes along and, seeing the dangling man, stops and shouts out encouraging words and slogans: " Pull yourself up, man, Pull yourself up." A Democrat comes along and grabs a 7 ft rope and lowers it down to the man, shouting " Jump up man, trust me, jump up to the rope." A Progressive comes along, sees the dangling man, the Repug and the Dem. He immediately sizes up the situation, lowers an 11 ft rope, rescues the man and together they throw the the Repug and the Democrat over the cliff and go have a beer together.
