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 Repug Racist Bastard

This prick from Colorado Springs where nutters and repugs run wild.

I may not like what the prez does but no way can I or would I go where these wingers go because I'm not like them - nor are you.

This is who they are - racist pigs who every once in awhile slip up and let their true feelings out like this time.

Of course there's an apology that is lip service only. They're sorry alright - sorry they got caught that's all.


  1. Morning amigo. Been lots of that sort of thing sneaking into the dialogues for the past couple of years. Seems weird to realize how much of that's left after I'd thought it was all boiled down and scraped off the bottom of the pot pretty much except in rare instances.

    Here's hoping you a fine day.

  2. Same back at you Jules. This is one thing bama brougt out. The baggers were formed which is the true face of the right.

    Have a good one!!

  3. It's amazing this guy got away with saying this without an explosion of outrage. and using the term tarbaby? Is this guy outta the 19th century?

  4. The white man is better mentality rules to this day Andy. It's just where we're at and it's not good nor will these guys or racism go away. It's more a form of tribalism I think.

  5. Why would they be sorry, they got what they wanted--publicity. There's no such thing as bad publicity. Unless your George Allen Jr.

  6. I posted this when it broke and urged people to leave love notes on his FB page and to email him similar thoughts. Apparently hundred of other folks had the same idea.

    He finally apologized today, if you can call it an apology.


  7. Colorado has more than it's fair share of these guys Leslie.

  8. These sons of siblings have been nothing but racist since their beloved Saint Ronnie and his "strapping young buck." Racism is the only coherent agenda that they have,
