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.


All On Board With Petraeus

These assholes in the senate sure as hell can vote in lock step when it comes to who they're going to blame when da mission fails in Afghannystan that is for damn sure.

99 to zip. One hell of a score.

Could just one have voted no and said it wasn't the man he was against but the almost decade old war our country can not sustain anymore which has been the reality for some time.

Hell no-you're not going to see one of these fuckers say no to war. They love it way too much and prefer to make war against us by taking things away that we need and have helped fund ourselves.

Nothing is going to change people. War funding will increase. Death will increase and our country will continue to deteriorate even though the drum bangers will scream we are the biggest and the bestest.

Waving the flag on the 4th won't do shit to help and doesn't mean a fucking thing about patriotism.


  1. What if we were to wave the flag and pray at the same time?

  2. I'm sure there are way too many that think that is an excellent idea.

  3. The "mission" won't fail because the fuckers don't plan on it ever ending . . .

  4. General Petraeus bought the most time. His job is to keep trading lives for time in the best traditions of the corps of mediocre that is our current crop of generals.

    This is not and never was a war. It was a manhunt. We need to go. Too bad talking points and fear of being called soft directs the policy instead of good sense.

  5. We love War!!!
    Damn it, It's my country love it or leave it....

    Hell we must love war, we've been at it for over 42 wars and conflicts since WWII.
    Ya think we'd be good at it by now.
    Oh and as far as leaving it...All Aboard.....Next stop Canada....
    Yeah I'm about ready.
