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.


Keep Your Word On Health Care President Obama

During the campaign you stated your position on Afghanistan and followed through with an escalation of that war while accepting the Nobel Peace Prize at the same time.

You also said the following about health care one of the reasons people put you and other Democrats in office specifically to get done.

Take your flip flop somewhere else because you will not ever get a pass on this.

It is my hope your silence has been so for a reason until the right time. That time is approaching and this is one man who is waiting for my president to rip these repug regressive inbreds in congress new assholes.

Bring it on!! You betcha.


  1. There is so much good stuff in a dumpster that the gov't should mandate diving in them and fine you if you don't. Also, you should pay a diving fee. Of course, the wealthy will have their own dumpsters which you will be arrested for diving in should you attempt to. Dive! Dive! Dive! Mariners! Dive! Dive! Dive!

  2. Sadly...his track record so far does not make me hopeful that promises on health care will be kept.

  3. He knows what he has said and the reality awakening that occurs when any goes from being a candidate to being POTUS is startling.

    I am going with he is going to get us the best HCR he can. When reconciliation starts the back room deals go into full swing and the value of Rahm come into play. He [Rahm] has been here before and I'm sure he has his marching orders. I believe that between now and bill's signing we will see how productive and valuable he is.

    It;s going to get ugly behind the scene and we will only get to watch the outcome because as you all must know is that the (D)'s realize their reelections hinge on it.

  4. It never ceases to amaze me how many otherwise intelligent politicians do not grasp the concept of video recoding their remarks. May they all get a large lump of anthracite up their asses this Christmas.

    And a Merry Christmas to all in the Cornfield

  5. Relax Tom, Have a Merry Christmas and a prosperous New Year!!
