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.


Embarrassed To Be From Here

After watching this yes. Conservative and just as religious of course when I grew up leaving in the mid 70's. I think there was a difference with there being better as less of news sources.

These people here are not stupid. They are mind screwed and the media did it. This is at the same level as Saddam was responsible for 911- that kind of lie. 

It's not the lies so much as it is the ability to get so many to believe them whether it this one or any other one. And the fact that a corporation does this to our nation on my air waves. We are really screwed. Got the video from Tim.


  1. Muslim equals bad?

    Luntz equals worse because he promotes an agenda that is destroying America.

    He gets paid when he fits the narrative of those who pay him.

    Chamberlain? Yes!

  2. Republican caucus voters in Iowa are fat, privileged, overwhelmingly white, brainwashed fox fiends. Of course they are the ones who are fundamentalists, which is to say, they don't believe in giving an inch and when Obama wants to give consideration to all views that just pisses them off.

  3. At least, One Fly, you can say you're from Iowa. I was born in Texas and, almost 69 years later, I'm still here. I did live for one year in Oklahoma, but that's even worse.

  4. There's no getting away from crazies.
    It used to be they stayed with their own. Now you just can't get away from em.

  5. There's more fatty's out there in that cornfield you wouldn't believe. Again friends what bothers me so much is the fact how many believe the lies. This is more than just propaganda. Then bama went and tried to make nice with the chamber of back stabbers. WTF but that's what we get.

    Okyhoma-oh my. It must have felt good to get home.

  6. I know that I shouldn't have been surprised by this, but I was - along with feeling shamed and outraged by the statements these people made.
    They do not, however, speak for all Iowa residents. Some of us, natives and transplants, still have working brains, support progressive ideals, and detest brain-dead rightwingers like those in the vid.
    The corn field hasn't gone completely batshit crazy yet.

  7. And I know that jeg. The right seems to dominate what is in Iowa politics these days as it does most places in this country.

    What I'm trying to get across is how successful the media is in getting educated people to believe lies-enough so that they will do harm to others because of what they are for the most part told to do.

    May the "GOOD" rise up someday at the same level as the bad is now.
