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.

Cheyenne Nukes Broke Down For A Bit

But not to worry kiddies when it comes to having the possibility of killing bunches of others quickly our country is the leader of the pack in that department ya see.


1/9th of the total number of these weapons were off line for less than an hour. 9x50 = 450. I think someone is trying to shit somebody else as I'd bet there's one hell of a lot more nukes in these states than that.

Update: Wikipedia link
As of 2006, it was believed to maintain an arsenal of around 9,960 intact warheads, of which 5,735 were considered active or operational, and of these only a certain number were deployed at any given time. These broke down into 5,021 "strategic" warheads, 1,050 of which were deployed on land-based missile systems (all on Minuteman ICBMs), 1,955 on bombers (B-52, B-1B, and B-2), and 2,016 on submarines (Ohio class), according to a 2006 report by the Natural Resources Defense Council.[23] Of 500 "tactical" "nonstrategic" weapons, around 100 are Tomahawk cruise missiles and 400 are B61 bombs.


I'm sure there are many who are happy this country's safety was not jeopardized by this interruption.

When it comes to war and killing we always make sure there are plenty of ways to get that job done if obstacles get in the way.

I can not help but to be a constant bitcher when it comes to these things. But it's true we always have more than enough resources to git 'er done when it comes to war if if the mission can't be completed.

  2. It is really nice to just be able to sit back quietly and let someone else do the bitching for awhile. Thanks, One Fly! P.S. Hey, Uncle Sam--how about .001% of the defense budget for human need?

  3. Thanks guys-you know Jim Joiner used to be stationed up there and I want to drive around out there sometime just to see what's out there. It wasn't that long ago several nuns were convicted of pouring blood on the silos. National security ya know.

    I don't know what you were feeling Tim but if it's a massacre on 11/2 I'll maybe feel the same.
