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.


Texas Can't Be Serious But It Sure Is

It's difficult to understand for me how people can be like this. We all know what has been said from the right and believers on whatever subject it might be. This is a bit different as it forces colleges to conduct research into intelligent design for dumb shits.

The Empire continues it's decline.


  1. Texas leads the country on dumbfucks.

    Love the new look OF. Love that header photo too!

  2. I can see why some of these guys would be so motivated to ban discrimination against the grossly ignorant. On the other hand, they're just making laughing-stocks of themselves.

    Next up: a ban on discrimination against sex researchers who support the "stork theory". Teach the controversy!

  3. Sue, are you familiar with our Creation Museum and the coming- soon Arkpark here in my beautiful Kentucky? I believe we can compete with anybody in the realm of ignorance.

  4. PZ Myers has been hammering on the fellow behind this, Cletis. It'd be funny if it weren't so sad.

  5. True believers never give up. The rest of the population don't understand the damage they do until it's too late.

  6. This is just plain crazy all of it but at this time Amerika is getting what it wants and deserves.

    All together now let's get even dumber and wave the flag to represent just how proud of teh stupid we really are.

  7. Texas has its own brand of state politics. Its legislature meets rather briefly every-other-year, as I understand it. TONS of bills are introduced; few actually make it. Seems like there's a lot of politicking behind the process. This one smells like grand-standing to me.

  8. Yes there's a stench but it's given credibility where there's is none.
