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.


Truth In TV Labeling

H/T to Onefly for making me aware.

It says on the side of my pack of Marlboro's:
Surgeon General
Cigarette Smoke Contains
Carbon Monoxide

Do we need a small D or R to in the corner of our television screens to denote which party the channel favors? and a rating sysytem like a LAL for lies a lot, LST for lies some times, TTT for totally the truth and an agency which reviews television channels for truthfulness and political bent?

Sort of a truth in labeling law.

I can see this working as a way to make people aware of what they are watching. Wanna watch the LAL channels with the R in the corner and masturbate politically, go ahead.

I'm getting on the phone with my senator next!


  1. I can't take the truth. Don't tell me the American people are too stupid to tell if Faux news is really fuxted. They need a label? Pathetic.

  2. Yes, Vig, they do. Just look at how many FOX "News" lies get treated as legitimate by the MSM.

  3. And no one calls them lies day in and day out except us guys. So tired of having to accept this shit as the norm. We're so screwed.
