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.


Wannabe Pole Dancer Hurts Self And Sues

Stupid stupid.


The gym actually teaches a class on this so they're probably both as stupid.

We got major problems here in the land of the free in the choices we make.

May it be warmer where you're at. -16 here


  1. Interesting choice in a post. I know incredibly fit women who exercise this way and several who have these in their homes. For my part I won't touch on the why with a ten foot pole until I talk to my atty. Ms. Wee should start with smaller poles, so to speak, until her upper body strength comes around or get a spotting partner and try conquering the pole from an angle that won't cause serious injury. Pole riding should be done for fun, and in some cases, profit. So have fun but be careful out there kittens.

  2. Women who go messing around with giant phallic symbols run the risk of injury.

    Nice picture of a trout, looks pan size.

  3. Fly, are you saying that Polish people shouldn't dance? ;-)

  4. Nice fish! The age of personal responsibility is over but not for all of us only for those looking to capitalize off their own stability. It is snowing in Atlanta as we speak and soon in Alabama. Unreal!

  5. I'll put one up tomorrow Holte that won't fit so well.

    Well TC I don't know about those Pole's but I bet these Bulgarian girls can tackle that dancing pole real good.

    I bet it goes 25-30 below tonight but at least it doesn't snow when it's that cold.

  6. Consider yourself lucky. Snow snow snow, 5" Sat, 6" Sun, 4" Mon, 2" Tue, 3" Wed, 2" today. More snow tomorrow, maybe and inch or two like Chinese snow torture. Then when were done with the snow we'll get what you have today, cccooolllddd, 15 below Friday night. Gotta love the winters in the Adirondacks.
