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.


Another Soldier Takes His Life Including His Wife And Son

This is so sad and it's not going to end because our wars will not end as those who love blood and death decide that we and our opinions do not count. This man was a medic and we can only imagine what experiences he had. It can be said that those experiences were more than just horrific. They make ordinary people kill their families but see that's okay because we're at war ya see. You war mongering bastards on the left and right together!


  1. The horrors of war simply defy the imaginations of those who have never been in one.

  2. I just read an article on how many serving in Afghanistan are being wounded in their lower extremities. As like Vietnam show the reality on the tube and it will stop. That of course will not be allowed.

  3. And there is no on-the-ground reporting like there was in Vietnam which provided a clear view to the public about what was really happening and not reported whenever the media then had Westmoreland, et al. on to talk about lights at the end of the tunnels, body counts and other imaginary ways we were WINNING!!!

    Who said thug asses didn't learn anything from Vietnam?

    Thanks for staying on top of this sad situation.

    Love ya, baby!


  4. No service member wants "head case" documented in their service jacket. Not that they would get the help that they need anyway. The military sucks ass sometimes, and it aint the guys who do the fighting that make it suck, it's the ones at the top who make the decisions.

  5. You two ladies are smart! If I was the boss you would be put in charge of many things including who I put in charge ya see.

    You're correct-we are correct.

    Thanks girls.
