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.


Stick Your Feel Good Headlines On The Disaster In The Gulf Where The Sun Don't Shine

Or go a mile down and pull your head outta your ass and stick it in the cloud of death spewing non-stop out the broken pipe. Then maybe you will take a different position rather than for instance "Well Cap Captures More Oil" and concentrate on the reality of this disaster you fuckers want to downplay.

You bastards presenting the idea that because some oil is being captured things are much better. My ass!

Whatever the numbers are the amount of oil spewing out of this pipe is huge and will remain so for possibly until the oil runs out. That's the story assholes not that they are getting some of it.

When they get all of it-every single fucking drop or get it completely shut off then and only then does it become a feel good story.

Until that happens the only position whore news people should be taking is what will the ramifications be if it can't be stopped.

Bottom line until it is stopped we got squat. It's just that simple.


  1. We're screwed six ways from Sunday and the local yokels down there still sing the praises of Bushco and march off to die in his needless wars. Total insanity has taken over.

  2. Fly, that just about says it all. At best booms and skimmers will get 20% of the surface oil. Surface oil is just the tip of the iceberg. This tragedy will continue for months: the aftereffects, for years, if not decades or centuries.

  3. You betcha men. We have not even begun to see the real effects and that is if it got shut off NOW.

    They expect I'm sure for this to go away like most all else bad that they do.

    Anyone who things BP will belly up for the bill is nuts.

    I wish most would just shut the hell up until it's off.

  4. We are seeing right now the dangers to the planet and society of giving too much control to oil companies. Remember when Bush and Cheney met secretly in the White House with the so called energy Czars?

    They decided what was right for them and their and Cheney and Bush's wallets while disregarding us and the planet. Cheney said they did not have to use the 1/2 million dollar acoustic valve that would have prevented this disaster.

    Remember Cheney's 34 million dollar golden handshake from the oil companies when he became VP? Cheney/Bush terminated platform and well inspections in 2001. They are directly responsible for this. Screw them, this is getting worse too not better.

    I figure a million gallons a day before their "fix" looking at the increase in pressure and everything it looks 33% worse anyway. I am sick of hearing rosy crap. This is going to be devastating.

  5. What bothers me is that as soon as and if the federal government takes control of the operation, we, the American taxpayer are on the hook for the costs of paying to clean it all up. Perfect storm against Obama, excuse me while I go outside and yell as loud as I can, "CHENEY!!!!!!".

    I am sure that he'll figure out a way to spin it, Obama, but right now he looks weak. Sucks to be him right now.

  6. People should reconsider the Funding of political campaigns. Politicians sell the natural resources of their country to greedy corporations.

    BP is one of the largest donors to BOTH parties (Yes, Obama got a huge donation and he'll do very little if anything to punish BP).

  7. With the fox watching the hen house and all of then feeding at the trough of corruption duta they will never make the changes needed and of course you a correct.

    Russ&Jim you /we are all correct and once again we will see this spun to the right's advantage. Like I've said until this thing is shut off all the cards remain on the table.

    We've seen nothing yet.
