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.


How Does It Feel

Are you starting to understand yet.

Did you actually think the dims were going to let the tax cuts for the richest in the world expire.

Do you actually believe this all can be turned around to the rosy scenario depicted during the campaign before the elections in '08.

Here is a what if for you-what if Social Security was on the table starting today.

Do you really believe the dims would save this amazing program that benefits millions and has for years and not let the repugs gut it for their own monetary benefit.

Hell no enough dims will help them get 'er done you can count on that.

Do you really think this country will stop a lot of it's warring ways and make huge cuts in defense spending to use that money here at home for "we the people".

It's never gonna fucking happen-never! Get your asses ready for some real bad times starting in earnest when these nazi motherfuckers gain total control in 012!!

We are in the midst of what is and will be a successful total power grab by the right.

I thought this was going to happen in the second term of the chimp.

This has the appearance of legitimacy but of course is not.


  1. The Democratic Party pretends to be for the little guy. The Republican Party doesn't even pretend. That's the only difference.

  2. nice picture of the grotto, maybe a prayer to fr doberstein would help right now

  3. It is an interesting picture and thanks for that. As for prayers that can and will not happen now or later.

  4. Fearguth
    Exactly. Well said.

    You are spot on, S.S. is next. Along with the DEPT. of Education. Medi-care, and medi caid also.
    Austerity has come to America, they just have not told you so. YET! !

    THEY WILL ! !

    No one has mentioned that the Big O also caved in on the "death tax" Inheritance tax.

  5. maybe we should all earn our own money and prepare for our own retirement and pay for our own healthcare...and npt depend on anyone else to do it for us. just a thought..

  6. SS was never intended to be a retirement fund but only assist in that respect.

    It's not about depending but what the richest country has done for decades that is solvent forever if the funds were and are not raided by the thieves in DC.
