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.


We'll Beat 'Em With Symbolism - You Betcha

Again today and twice in recent days two fighters have been scrambled in each case to accompany or whatever the fuck they think they can assist two passenger jets with unruly/drunk/stupid or what have you passengers.

There is only one reason to take action like this is because these fighter jets sure as hell can't do squat for the situation inside the passenger jet and that is simply a show of force to whoever gives a fuck that this country means business!! You savvy dat all you baddies out there??

Give me a fucking break here with da stupid shit. Show that we really mean it and put up a couple squadrons and make sure all the pilots fly with a very mean scowl on their faces. Do that and they'll really understand that they better be good or else.


  1. It is all a show and I can't believe people do not see it!

  2. About the only thing they can do is shoot down the plane if the pilots lose control of the cockpit.

  3. Of course and I missed it yet knew it. I think that's about it or say they tossed something out they could pin point where it landed things like that as well.

  4. This was an exercise in very costly pilot training for the jet jockies. The guy wasn't even charged with anything. America has money to burn, I guess. Be afraid, America, be very afraid.

  5. I stand corrected. Mr. Johnson was charged with a felony tonite. He faces 20 years for being pissed about not being able to store his luggage nearby. He also complained about other silly things and the flight attendant snitched him off. I say shot the fucker. He had the audacity to complain about the way he was treated by people with high school educations.

  6. We could hire more air marshals to, like, actually be *inside* the plane to handle "situations" of this sort. But wait, that would make too much sense...

  7. Sense as in common a trait long since lost. Even if the ones who need it wouldn't know what it was if they saw it.
