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.


What Freedom Can Get You

Your death in this case and it's really unfortunate.

A motorcyclist riding to protest upper New York's helmet laws was killed after flipping over the handlebars. Police say he would have likely survived if he had been wearing a helmet.

Here you have people who do not wish the government to impose a regulation that is to them a freedom. Okay.
Then there's this relatively new effort by the right to accomplish their goals by the use of brain dead humans called tbaggers. Okay.

Now you have a movement by this ideology and the willingness to give away the very things that give you freedom. Like medical care when you have none. Breakfast for the kids if the cupboard is bare. Another keeper is of course Social Security. Not okay.

This is damn near bizzaro world we got here.


  1. I'm sorry, but I can't stop laughing. It's the way you frame things. It's so true, and yet absurdly hilarious, plus the Utah Dummy is back! :)

    Bizarro, indeed.

  2. I shake by head in disbelief. We live in the dark ages when it comes to the content our society desires.

    It wasn't that long ago man slept with his animals. They got moved eventually to another room in the house and then finally to a barn.

    With the number of pigs being raised and I speak of Iowa because I believe they are the biggest producers of pork - that being in that close proximity to so many man is again sleeping with his animals.

    We are and have been regressing as a country.

    Ya I see that slug flitting around I times. His number comes up way too ofter considering the number of posts. 1 in almost 2000 shouldn't be seen as much as this this this
