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.


Joseph Smith Didn't Get Any On The Side!! WTF??

In the tone and style of Richard M. Nixon with Dan Aykroyd speaking-I am veerry sskeptical of this!

Historians and critics have struggled for more than a century to identify children Joseph Smith may have had through polygamous marriages in the 1840s.

DNA evidence shows he did not father several people. I have a hard time believing the leader of the pack that started the multiple wives practice that continues to this day wasn't getting some strange. No way.


  1. I have a tough time with that one too.

    Beautiful photo.

  2. So, Joseph wouldn't be the first man, Mormon or otherwise, who was married but closeted... Just a thought, and without judgment. Perchance, he fits that category?

  3. Girls in my experience asking Mormon kids who I've worked with maybe 3-4 when asked if polygamy is still being practiced amongst the rank and file the answer has always been yes.

    Maybe this man did not but the reality is that he probably did. I bet that horses patoot Hatch hides teenies somewhere handy.

    That was an easy picture to take Leslie as he was no more than two feet away and actually it's not that clear.

  4. I have a difficult time imagining him getting ANY...look at the guy...I wouldn't touch that- don't care what divine word told me to.
    There's a reason why polygamy always involves one husband and multiple wives. Having one of these husbands would be one too many. Their whole ground crew needs reassignment.

  5. I love the "no mercy" position!

  6. Smith has more progeny than Genghis Khan.
