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.


Churchill Back In Court


Asking to be reinstated at his job wrongfully taken from him and acknowledged by the court as well that is what happened.

I have followed this from the very beginning and how this man is hated but I always agreed with his piece about the "little Eichman's". You bet he's an arrogant bastard and minces no words but I like that.

When it was realized he could not be had on the speech issue the haters went another way and were successful with that termination determination made by a group that were immune from any lawsuits.

No matter what the flag wavers back then were going to prevail against this commie and god hater and they did.

And to think what is being said these days against Obama and Democrats and none of these same sonsofbitches open their shit encrusted mouths about that.

I'm on your side Ward and hope you prevail because it could have been one of us.


  1. Hi,
    I would like to thank you for the hard work you have made for this blog. I truly like this..
    I have added your blog to Daily Update Blog at
    So would You put my blog as well; our visitors can get virtual and useful information from your site.
    I will hope you will add my blog.

  2. As you might have guessed, I too was and am a Ward Churchill supporter; I, too, thought his "little Eichmanns" remark was right on target, so to speak. Especially now, when the US launches Predator drone strikes to kill one Taliban leader, while annihilating another 30 in "collateral damages," it seems hypocritical to call an act of war by your opponents/antagonists 'atrocities.'

    Gotta say, Tom, yer a heckuva fotog!

  3. Thanks for that Woody and the comments in that whore post piece are so hateful as is most comment threads you see in conventional sites. This may reinforce the polls. People hate the left.

    I look forward to when we can sit down again and have a real bullshit session.
