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.


Our Country Needs A Clue On Solar

Well here's a good example right here.

An experimental solar-powered plane completed its first 24-hour test flight successfully Thursday, proving that the aircraft can collect enough energy from the sun during the day to stay aloft all night. The project's overarching purpose is to test and promote new energy-efficient technologies.

We need a massive program in alternative energy sources,R&D and their implementation that will create long term decent paying jobs.

We sure as hell have a massive ongoing effort on weapons systems but that's a given because of our love affair with war and death because god told us that it is good.

Whether it's solar or other issues our government needs and should make intelligent decisions for the future of our country and the planet. We need this now not later.

If anyone thinks this congress or the ones after this one are going to achieve real historic legislation so badly needed you are living an illusion.

We will get nothing from these people.

What we will get is less but will get more war.

There is the possibility the gusher could change some priorities but I'll only believe that if it happens.


  1. As soon as they can figure out how to charge us for sun shine.
    That is when solar will be spread around the country.

  2. That's so funny and just as true.

    How come I don't think like that.
