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.


It Is Worse Out There

On election day 2008 this is the prick I saw standing on the corner here in lily white ski town USA. Needless to say I was a bit surprised so much so I forgot to call this slug a dumb fucker when I drove off. He was so happy he straightened right up and smiled like a good nutter. The only thing missing here was a gun.

Guns have long since entered the picture with these people even more so today along with even more hateful rhetoric and some homegrown terrorist killings that are not of course to the nut pounding pundits.

It is worse than I have ever seen in respect to what the Right is doing to change opinion. It now has become fashionable to target government employees to achieve their goals of no government.

Our side has as usual has not been effective in counteracting this and it's tough when the media is on their side for the most part.

I have no real answers this morning but I know many Bloggers on the left have done their part and wish the biggies on the left would do the same somehow.

Being nice don't do it. We are losing.


  1. Onefly you can't say we are losing. We are not gonna lose this, even tho it is worse than ever. Remember what they did to Clinton, they are doing it to Obama but on a much bigger scale. It will backfire on them, the people are sick of the rethug party. The sane people in this country outnumber the nutters, it's time for us to call ourselves winners! Yee Ha!!! :-)

  2. Oh my dear, where did you find that priceless picture? roflmao!

  3. I'll try real hard to get a better attitude about this Sue but it's hard work ya know there ya see.

    Took it myself Nunya-had to go around the block as it confused me and couldn't get it together on the first pass by.
