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.


There's An Internet Screwing A Humm'in

We're talking Net Neutrality if the title is too confusing. This from the FCC at the end of their day.

Federal Communications Commission officials called off closed-door talks with lobbyists aimed at reaching a compromise on new rules to prevent Internet traffic from being blocked or slowed, saying they couldn't reach a workable compromise.

What the fuck is so hard to understand about this. There ain't going to be any fucking compromise ever. Just like there was not going to be any working together with the piece of shit repugs in Congress like Bama tried to do time and again. Get it fucking straight-it ain't happening fucking ever not the way things are now.
Lets be clear and cut the bull shit.
The FCC has the power to institute regulations concerning many things but in this case it's access to the Internet and how fast it runs for consumers. That's all consumers not just the ones with more money.
There are three Democrats on a board of five unlike the Bush years when it was the other way around. I know where Copps is on this issue but I have a bad feeling that in the end the corporations will get their way and the little guys will get fucked again.
I believe that if Net Neutrality  is not instituted little blogs will for the most part be inaccessible. This is serious shit and the big boys want control of this as it's pretty much the last place where the whole truth can be found. Lefty blogs like this,mine and maybe yours.
I have little confidence that equal access to the Internet will survive as we have it now.
