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.


The Do Gooders Can't Stand It

The people spoke and local municipality's following up on voter approval for medicinal marijuana set parameters for clinics and growers that fit the needs as they saw it. All in all these businesses have been very successful and have and are providing a tremendous resource for people's medical needs they are unable to get anywhere else.

Now there is more whining and bitching than you can believe demanding towns take this away from these people who started legal endeavors. This is happening in many places including here. For decades I was a criminal and then I was not and now I probably will be again. When the repugs take total control in 012 one of the first things done will be repeal states rights in respect to this benign substance that has the potential to help this country in dramatic fashion. It's just fine those wars for lies but we sure as hell can't have people smok'in that damn no good ganga ya see there you betcha. I despise this mentality and these slugs who pursue this agenda.

Here is the link as much as I hate to link to this local fishwrapper on the dynamics of what will happen tonight at the city council meeting and what is happening in respect to this issue around the state.

And the link to a local MM business owner who kicks monkey dumb ass butt. This is the best and I always enjoy seeing dumb asses get their nose bloodied. I like this fellow and his partner a bunch. Unfortunately that does not mean they will prevail in this!

Well there were several real nice days and that's over now as the next several are wet. We do not need wet not even a little bit. The snow is still up there. The rivers and streams have risen some but still the real runoff is yet to come. Just wait.

Have a good one!


  1. When will the madness stop on the useless war against weed. I've never used, but that doesn't mean I or the government should ban a substance for no good cause and much ill effect medically and socially.

  2. I think it's probably another tactic the right uses at a local level to take any focus off of the real issues faced Patrick.

  3. The damn right who have no morals keep trying to justify infringing on our rights with their morality.

    What I'm trying to say is leave the pot alone. Let us enjoy something.

  4. No matter where one is at Tim this shit never ends. I know there are many like myself that have had just about enough. Let 'em fucking have it all is just about where I'm at.
