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.

Comcast And Our Future

Don't shit yourself folks there's much more going on here than just the purchase of another large media organization.

Do you remember not that long ago about getting something accomplished with Net Neutrality. Well it didn't happen and there has not been one word on it that I've seen in several months. Where is the FCC?

Remember the e-mails Comsuck would not deliver from progressive sites a couple years ago. Do you think Rachel,Ed and Keith will be on as they are now. Of course they won't be! Will there be other progressive types hired to replace them. Hell no.

HC reform is what we voted for. Where are we with this now and do you really believe if a bill is passed it will have "we the people" best interests as an integral part of it and not the corporations?

If Comsuck is allowed to follow through with this purchase it gives them that much more leverage when the battle for Net Neutrality begins in earnest.

The battle for control of the internets is just starting to warm up and players like Comsuck and other biggies will lie cheat and steal just as they have with the battle for health care to win as then they will have won total domination of all that is ours and that is the airwaves and the Internet.

One of my linky buds had a quote from the Prez about the importance of diversity in the media and the negativeness of giant media company's. Will he produce for us or cut and run? We need this man desperately if we are to win this.

If they accomplish that 1984 will be here even sooner. They must be stopped !!

  1. This is an intersting story because it has dissappeared almost entirely from the news cycle. I smell a rat in the kitchen. Of course our fearless leaders will buckle at the knees when 15 billion dollars is on the line. Do Biden and Specter have something cooking in Philly besides Cheese Steaks. Me thinks so.
