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.


Step Up To The Plate Arizona and Tucson

There are a bunch of humanoid devils headed for Tucson sent by Fred Phelps to protest at the funerals of those killed during the assassination attempt on Arizona Rep. Gabrielle Giffords.

Here's your chance Arizonans to make a statement to the country that maybe you are something other than what you have been. That at the very least you will not allow people such as this group of haters the likes possibly never seen before to insult in any way the families of those killed and injured.

 I don't care how you do it but keep these bastards away from the families. Can't figure it out find someone smarter than you who can.

I hope you people show up in the tens of thousands to say no to this type of hate and bigotry and also no to the other hate filled people in this country who use fear,intimidation and killings to make their political statement based in part on the advice of powerful people in the media.

There are bills to be paid and you on the right and in the media can start with writing the check for this one.


  1. One way that worked here was to raise sheets so the mourners could not see them and "surround them with love" as in singing and quoting the real gospel. Spooked those bastards so bad they turned and ran inside of 10 minutes. And I mean ran even though no one threatened them in any way.

  2. Do the devils say why they are going to protest those murdered innocents?? What could they have done? Just because they went to a Democrat Congresswomans gathering?? A 9 yr old?? WTF!!!

  3. I hope Montag sent that suggestion to the Tucson authorities.

  4. It looks like the idea has good support in Tucson.
