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.


Arrest This Man

I don't give a shit what anyone says when you have a commander on the ground attempting to use mind games to influence and manipulate members of our government who fund our aggression around the globe and in this case on our second war front in Afghanistan that's a crime.

This is where we are at that chesters feel free to openly politic for increased mayhem and death. This is soooo wrong and this president needs to get rid of this criminal immediately and take appropriate action. Of course chester says he didn't do a thing wrong ya see there.

bama won't do squat because they got their mitts on him a long time ago.


  1. Our tax dollars at work - trying to get more tax dollars to spend!

    Brilliant pic, by the way.

  2. They've invented the 'Perpetual Motion War Machine'. What a scientific breakthrough!

  3. Damn near beyond belief some of this stuff. I swear it's getting worse out there on a daily basis.

    Thanks Andy.

  4. To me, the money quote was the one from that Marine colonel, about how something was legal if he said it was. I think anyone with even a passing acquaintance with the UCMJ would know better.

  5. But it seems they don't Cujo. The unaccountability factor is present in the armed services as well too.

    Seriously these upper level chester types are not that dumb are they to say this if they didn't feel somewhat comfortable with it.

  6. Thanks for the post. I signed up.

  7. You know Tom, I listened to this on the news a few times and was perplexed.

    I listened to some of the Senators who it was used on and they said they saw nothing out of the ordinary.

    I was thinking they wouldn't know it if it hit them in the face. They were probably thinking tape recording or something.

    It's like raising kids, common military life, It is all psy ops. You know it and act accordingly, it is daily life today!

  9. That is for damn sure but what I see here Jim is a bit more and this officer had much more in mind.
