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.


Obama Headed Into The Depression Cornfields

If you are not from the cornfield state chances are if you have driven across it you took I80 or I35. It is not flat like many think. Hell a lot of easterners think it's Idaho and that's no shit.

Where Obama is headed today was depressed to begin with. Iowa holds 25% of the planets best soil but it is not where Radar O'reilly came from because when it's hilly and the soil sucks you're not growing much and the economy of this part of the state has always reflected that. It's a different breed of cat down there and it doesn't get fed well at all.    Article link

So President is going to spread some money around as he will in other parts of the nation that are hard hit because of eight years of Bush whore-ism and help is needed in areas like this wherever they may be.. But that ain't good enough for the dumb clucks that comment at the whore Des Moines Register that actually used to be a paper.

Nobama's message will be of more misery and despair under his Socialist Liberal rule for southern Iowa.

LOL, yes he is a very competent liar....and people like you keep believing in his word. Sad, the state of intelligence of some people.

He is full of as much c.r.a.p. than the pig farm he'll be around, You won't be able to tell the difference from him or the pigs.

Remember not to let him smoke in or around a public place!

There are some inbred stupid bastards down there let me tell ya-after all we're getting close to the state where they have to be shown everything over and over again because they can't remember.

I have a feeling the leader of our country may be not treated very well by the likes of those he's there to assist. Help that is needed badly and then blamed for the situation he had nothing to do with.

It's not exactly the South but it is just a bit north of there.

We'll see and I hope not but it would not surprise me.


  1. Unfortunately there are a lot of people like that who are easily brainwashed. They don't know why they hate him, they just spout out rhetoric they've been programmed to say. It's sad really.

  2. Why do small family farmers have such a disconnect between their political positions and their economic reality?

  3. Very sad Jeanette and well said. Thanks for stopping OTC.

    Dollars Patrick. At times these farmers can have dollar signs rolling around in their eyeball sockets just like a slot machine.


  4. I love farmers, but I've never met a happy one. Hard working worriers, I suppose you would worry a lot if you are depending on mother nature to turn your hard work into a living. Not talking corporate farmers here, there is way to many of them.

  5. Farmers get huge amounts of welfare. But for some reason the ones around where I live are almost all government hating republicans.

    Brainwashed as Jeanette says or selfish who think it's good for them to get government largess and nobody else.

  6. Fact of the matter is Holte if you're a farmer no matter how good it is there will be bitching. Just the way it is. Non farmers laugh their ass off at that.

    The amounts some of these entities receive can be astounding. Many times little or nothing has to be done to get these monies. They get real testy like if you start asking questions but the info is online.
