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.


Six O Today Confused And Going Around In Circles

You Tube Link


  1. Looks like somebody was having too much fun.

  2. Definitely something I would do.

  3. those 790's and 990 Deere's are great tractors and so much more useful with the left right unconnected rear brakes and given the chance I would do the same thing. BTW most of America does'nt know the Yanmar secret. Do you?

  4. AHHAHAHA! amazing tom. that takes some driving skills. time to build a jump over the road and onto hole 10

  5. I lost the comment and it was long dammit. So quickly what is the Yanmar secret Russ-make more smoke using less fuel?

    This really is pretty easy to do but I like the last one done under full power. Most people don't have a clue what brakes are there for. You learn that in the fields and maneuvering and attaching equipment.

    My fantasy is turning the steering wheel slightly just before entering a giant expanse of ice going at least a hundred and sitting back for a long time doing gentle circles.

  6. So that was you, ya ceazy fuck! Looked like fun to me.
    My old man had a 69 Firebird he took out in the snow one night with four of us kids stuffed in the back seat and my step mother on the right.
    He found an empty Safeway parking lot and started doing cookies. I was sitting right behind him and was watching the speedometer. I sat back down after it it hit a hundred and forty and started praying.

    He also hit one twenty one time with all of us stuffed into that thing on a long straight away and said later if it was a bit longer it would have done one sixty.
    That tractor looks like a lot of fun though.
    Stay young that away.

  7. Just cheered me right up! Life can be a hoot in spite of the damn pols.

  8. I lasted a month in a snow country sm town (pop 60,00).

    I knew I was in trouble when I asked, "So, what do we do around here?"

    "Hey let's do donuts in the parking lot!"

    I knew I was going home just as quickly as I could swing it.

  9. DOH!!

    It just dawned on me what six O meant!

    Happy Birthday Buddy!!

  10. The secret is that most people who buy JD tractors under 65HP have no idea they are buying a tractor with a Japanese motor. JD even repackages the parts and filters into JD boxes and bags and just about doubles the price.

  11. Thanks Busted. I didn't want to state the obvious cuz it's just not that that special of an occasion.

    I'm down on the front range and am taking a break.

    Damn Yanmar's.

  12. Well, I'm glad Busted figured it out, because I was sure in the dark. Happy Birthday, a little late...

  13. I hate riddles. You fellows are smart. Thanks for that guys.
