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.


Pedophile Priests Shold Get Their Benefits Benny The Rat Argues

In this case the argument is also for priests that have not been convicted. Not many will have a problem with that because obviously they have not been convicted of any crimes. It's different with these other six. Call me an asshole and a mean sumbitch like the Mormonys do but I think priests convicted of buggering young boys should lose their pension!

After filing for Chapter 11 protection last month, the diocese agreed not to make payments to priests accused of sexual abuse without court approval. In a filing submitted late Thursday, attorneys for the diocese now seek authorization to provide pensions, housing costs and medical coverage to six confirmed child abusers.


  1. Housing costs? Medical coverage? If they've been convicted, it's curious that those issues are not currently being handled by the appropriate state prison.

    The diocese argues that pension payments would not be taken from funds that might be used to pay creditors, including abuse victims waiting for settlement payments.

    This implies that the diocese has some funds which are off-limits to paying settlements to abuse victims -- which ought not to be the case.

    Just more Church arrogance and corruption.

  2. The money will probably come from the Sunday collection plates; which logically comes from the parents and grandparents of the abused children. That's Catholic irony at its' best.
