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.


Yo Team Obama!!

Got off to a really bad start this morning after not doing squat for four days.

Want to say to the Obama's that rule #1 is that you just do not screw up like you did when these unauthorized people got into your house. I'll do that for you if you want. Some one better get their ass kicked.

The slugs on the right don't need real fodder to scream and distort and this kind of shit makes all of us look like chumps-sheez!!

The interesting news is that I was hanging out with Whitney Houston and Brittany Spears on Saturday night. It was fun and there is a picture.

Later -I'm behind and it 7* and gotta go now!


  1. Whatcha gonna do when the Secret Service screws up... scary!

  2. You make a head or two roll for starters! We won't go to that place where maybe this was intentional to make him look bad. I don't trust any of these people.

  3. OTC- Heads should roll for sure. These type of occurances only make Obama and his cohorts more nervous with the Service, so to speak. We can only hope our 1st sorta black boss doesn't pull back from the public appearances, etc. Note: OTC I see where Chelsea Clinton is engaged to Ed Mezvinsky's son. Ed was my Congressman for awhile. The only time in my life I ever really needed " constiuent service ", as it is called, Ed came thru big time and pronto. He saved me thousand of bucks and wrote a really nice personal letter, too. I hope Chelsea is happy as she seems to be a nice young woman.

  4. I bet she is very nice and smart as well and will do more with her life than the bush twins combined.

    FYI visitors-it's Duck's birthday today. A great big HAPPY BIRTHDAY to a lifelong friend who will not post on OTC even after numerous invites and ass chewing's. I still like him though.
