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 Loses Appeal

Yes I do want this man to win but this outcome was a given. A judge who rules in favor of this man is taking a genuine chance of losing his life. Churchill is hated as much as the Clinton's and President Obama.


  1. I agree
    He will never get a fair shake.
    If he did it would be the same as admitting their own failure of justice.

  2. As my grandmother used to say.

    "it's not who's right, it's what's right"

    afraid to take a stand as judges of what's right put's us on slippery slope to anarchy.

  3. Another great day for the First Amendment. [/SARCASM]

  4. If I understood correctly, the man was fired for plagiarism, but if it was freedom of speech, then he should indeed be returned to his position at the university.

    Anyway, he's got to justify the name of Churchill who was a great statesman (lol).

  5. Maybe someday he will prevail folks but I doubt it not with the hateful mood we have now in this country. We all understand the importance of this.

    He has more balls than Churchill Duta but read his essay on roosting chickens and that is why he was punished. Saved you the effort. The link is here.

    He was correct then and remains so today. Our country loves war way too much to have an uppity Injun calling white folks out on it ya see there!!

    Many dumb shits on our side hate him as well.
