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.


Nuclear Future Here In Jeopardy?

Don't waste your time even for a second thinking it is because it's not. The powers that be and those that would benefit from the construction of new plants are laughing their asses off at those who think the dangers that this type of energy poses will stop the future of building numerous plants. That they are because they know they hold all the cards. Corporations and a bought off government will not be denied no matter how bad it gets over there.

Here's our bud Lieberwhore -
New York Times: After Japan's earthquake and subsequent problems with its nuclear power plants, the US is reexamining its position on nuclear power. Until this past weekend, President Obama, mainstream environmental groups, and large numbers of Republicans and Democrats in Congress agreed that nuclear power offered a steady energy source and part of the solution to climate change, even as they disagreed on virtually every other aspect of energy policy, writes John Broder for the New York Times. “I think it calls on us here in the US, naturally, not to stop building nuclear power plants but to put the brakes on right now until we understand the ramifications of what’s happened in Japan,” said Senator Joseph Lieberman (I-CT), one of the Senate’s leading voices on energy, on CBS’s Face the Nation.


  1. The vandals won't be satisfied until the entire ecosphere has been rendered uninhabitable by our kind.

  2. This will make them scream "drill baby drill".
    More natural gas fracking for the new bridge fuel will be called for.
    Shale will now be on the priority list also.
    Anything, and everything that we can do to slowly kill this planet will be done.
    20% of our energy comes from nuclear plants.
    They will not shut these down.
    I agree they will build more and more.
    until there is no more.
