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.


What The Senate Is Good For

Not much as we know but before they ran out of Doge for their recess they were able to get together and pass CALM. That they got done. (Commercial Advertisement Loudness Mitigation Act)

Of course there are several minor things that have to be reconciled with da House but it appears after the election they'll git 'er done.

This is an example of what our government can get done for us even though it's not done.

Is this where I start waving the flag?


  1. Glad to see that they are taking care of the REALLY important stuff. Everything else can wait.

  2. Most are on board with the trivial shit there JC you double betcha.

  3. If the industry let them pass this after all these years, it must truly be a worthless piece of legislation.

  4. My thought is that some bigwig really had a "bee in his bonnet" about being bothered by loud, late night commercials, and thus, a new regulation was born!

    Or not. As the regulators will never enforce it if the money is right.

    Thanks for the heads-up about the important issues in this land.

    And those who know what they are.

    You'd think there was no off button on TV's, wouldn't you?

    Love ya!
