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.


Damn Near A Must Watch At Least For A Little Bit

This piece by Max Blumenthal and several others is dramatic!

First it shows how Fox News can manipulate public opinion in this country at will and that is fact.

If you watch anything go towards the end where you see the panel discussion.In that Max frames the teabaggers in a way that I've never heard before and it's the best. He so very correct on this.

The reason I put this up is I believe it validates what OTC has been posting. We are losing and this is the proof. Yes we are and our side does not even realize it. We are in deep shit. It said when I played the video that it was 40 minutes in length but it stopped well before that just so you know.

Got this over at Scared Stiff. Thanks Tim!

  1. I watched too much.
    Made my blood boil.

  2. Yup, that's why I dropped out and gel out to stupid tv shows on Netflix. I just can't take the Fox news watching crowd.

  3. These folks were always out there, now Fox has given them a stage, along with their own "performer" Glenn Beck. Sickening video.


  4. I've been blogging a lot in the past few weeks about how they control the message. A large part of the electorate believes that 2 + 2 = 5, to their own determent, and most of them will vote republican.

  5. Agreed Ano. Where do you blog?

  6. Thanks for the shout out..


  7. I agree with the first Anon. comment that these folks were always out there and that they are being incited--more driven than led--by minds that know their weaknesses and exploit them. I'm really torn about giving them more air-time; it's not that I don't think we need to know what's going on in the sewers, but that I'm exhausted by peering into the gutter.

  8. I hope some people came over to your place from here as OTC took 1600+ hits with a link from Crooks & Liars. That was nice but it's the message that's important. I take for granted that many people see Max but it's wrong to do that because it's not the case.

    The Fox and radio people are very sharp in how they word things. Even Palin has become polished. They even use MLK against us saying King was their here. Sheez!

    Thanks for the visit Nance and the gutter can be as bad as the sewer for sure.

  9. I was watching that. I am so sick of their lying, not in controlling the message but lying about it from beginning to end. It's enraging when you see them idiots believing this satirical crap!

  10. 1)Do you ever wonder if theres any intelligent life on Earth?
    2)Does the Earth Need Humans to survive?

  11. Yo - the crowd in West Bend just toasted you! Hope you are well and see you next time we are up your way.
