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.


Some Mentors Quit Over New Pentagon Rules

I am fine with this and give Gates and the Prez thumbs up on instituting this program. Keep all military types out of the Pentagon if they are getting paid as consultants for company's and I don't give a shit if the company they work for makes ass wipe.


  1. Calling these Generals $5.00 whores is an insult to $5.00 whores.

  2. About bloody time. Good for Gates and Obama - these guys are no loss at all.

  3. That's no shit RZ.

    Pretty basic stuff here Cujo. Now lets see the list who are on the payroll for others and still consult at the Pentagon.

  4. Get rid of them all! We know they are a major problem but Jim has been lobbying his Commanders to get rid of them in EOD.

    They are ruining the military and on his shelves alone at the school house are multiple millions of dollars worth of obsolete equipment those ass holes that get paid by the company make them by. It is sick the way it works!
