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.


GGG Is Good For America

Tom Cat put this post up an excellent post titled GOP Gulf Gusher where he pretty much covers the situation there including remarks Palmer Palin made in which Obama is made out to be the one responsible for this disaster. It fired me up among others as I do get tired of the lies and con-artists like BP and as I made a comment it just went on and I turned it into a post for today. This is so serious my friends and there seems to me not much being done. TC eludes to fining BP a billion a day. This simple women continues the mantra of drilling as the possibility of the worlds oceans being destroyed means nothing. How can there be progress made when people like this are given the floor more than us to spew lies and accuse others ?

Is a billion enough?

Now Saladbar says he's gonna get real tough. Will a letter be the first thing before the knockout blow comes?

Any reporter would be writing about the arrangement made with the Bush's. I guess they're not reporters.

And they give this simple talking points women credibility. Pin it on Bama and the sheep believe it.

LTFO boys and girls. If this doesn't get shut off real soon they may not be able to for some time if ever.

So if what they're going to try next fails what's next and after that what?

We should be sitting in on this strategy and know exactly what the plans are day to day.

All that is and will be destroyed is mine and yours!

It's been a fucking lie from the beginning.

If the Bush bastards had been held accountable for taking this country to war on lies chances are good this wouldn't be happening.

There must be accountability at this level of government else this is what you get.

I really believe these are the worst of times overall that my country has seen in my lifetime which is awhile.

This country is regressing and at faster rate than climate change.

There are many out there who are much more optimistic than I. We need that badly.

At this stage I'm doubtful we can get back all that has been lost in a decade and we will continue a rather steep decline and that's with the oil getting shut off in the gulf starting right now.

The worst case scenario in the Gulf is not being spoken about and it should be. If it were there might just be a bit more action.


  1. I do try and be positive but things are bad and if the country puts us back in rethugs control its all downhill from here on out....

  2. We don't have long to wait and what's it going to be like when the unlimited funds start pouring in.

    But more to the point this monster in the Gulf must be stopped and this administration has granted other considerations to the drilling companies even after Obama said no.

  3. Our government is a mess. Perhaps we grew too large as a nation.

    The "r" in Republican stands for "regressive".

    I have to stand with Sue in that I try to remain positive. Hope is what keeps us getting out of bed each day.

  4. One Fly... how do I get my avatar picture to show on your blog?

  5. Cat's it's so good to hear from you it's been like forever!

  6. I'll be more positive when the spigot is shut off and BP is held accountable. That's a promise girls.
