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.

12 Year Old Kills Parents And Wounds Younger Siblings

I glanced at this looking at the papers over coffee before going to work. We all know how tragedy's like this devastate small communities. What set this kid off to do such a thing and most of the time from the initial article one can speculate and that's about all. The father was a former deputy so that's more than likely where the instrument of death came from. It did not take long to get to the probable cause. I can't prove it but if I were a betting man I would bet plenty that part of the reason for this young person to do such a thing was this!

  4. The parricide was also home schooled.

  5. I think it's fair to say most who are home schooled that religion is a big part of their curriculum.

  6. I was a Ted Nugent fan in the early 70's but his stance on guns and being a Republican crap turns me off to anyone associated with him.

  7. I saw an interview with the minister who said he was just stunned - a God-fearing family and the kid was very active in the church, Hmmmmm.

  8. A big part of the curriculum in many such religiously-oriented home schools is buggery. Tighty righties who obsess about sex just can't seem to control themselves when it comes to the thought of strokin' nubile young buttocks and using children in unseemly ways. It wouldn't surprise me at all if that were the case here.

  9. This incident hit a nerve with many as this place took over twice as many hits as it usually does and most coming from search engines that found OTC.

    Could it be there are bunches of religiously insane who are worried about their childruns wising up to all the lies fed to them??
