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.


bama Says This About Libya

With a little help from you guess who!

A State spokesman said that no decision has yet been made on whether to send U.S. experts to Libya to help prevent the Gadhafi regime's massive arsenal of anti-aircraft missiles from slipping into the hands of terror groups.

U.S. intelligence also has been "keeping a close eye" on Gadhafi's chemical arsenal

Then there's this-
Sens. Chuck Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand, asked the Transitional National Council to arrest Abdel Baset al-Megrahi, the Lockerbie airplane bomber.

Obama was quick to note that it all happened "without putting a single U.S. troop on the ground" — a policy aides said Obama would maintain. It's come at a cost, though: The Pentagon says that as of July 31, the U.S. had spent about $896 million, including the daily military operations, munitions and humanitarian assistance.

That's all real peachy. Who'll be next in line??


  1. I got a kick out of that line, too. Who does he think he's fooling?

    And not a single troop depends on how you define "troop."

    Who's next? Syria, is my guess. We're probably already there, in some clandestine way, i.e. special ops.

  2. The only believers Teresa are those who feel the need to believe and then there's us few other types.

    They will shoot somewhere else soon that is for sure.

  3. Love the photo in your header btw. Bedrock Depot. Flintstones?

  4. It's a store in Dinosaur. Just another wayside stop along Hway 40 to get crappy food unfortunately.

  5. Great header amigo. That car came a long way to get here.

    I can't help wondering whether, when the TV watching population comes to the place in history where they can predict the evening news before it happens because they've donealready seen it and know it, the news media will start making up news for the novelty.

    Hmm... guess they're already doing that, come to think of it.

    Have a great one amigo. J

  6. Hi Jules, yes they are already doing that. It's easy to predict what's going to be on with Loco news. haven't had tb for a long time and every time I see it I pretty much walk away.

    When I did the whore national tb news the networks would follow at least the same first 2-3 stories in the same order.

    All of us are smarter and more aware than most of those slugs.

  7. It's kinda frightening the ease with which we now replace little tin pot dictators we don't like. It started with Pineapple Face in Panama and the some guy no one remembers in Grenada. There was Slobbo in Serbia and after a false start, Saddam and Mullah Omar in Shitholeistan. Now we chalk up Malomar and act as if it was just another Brooks Bros. riot in Miami. It is getting too damn easy to go in and take them out because we don't like something about them. Like them or not, they were heads of state in sovereign countries. In the name of those great values we hold dear, we violate those values we hold dear.

  8. That was sooo good Mont.

    The way it is.

    The way it's gonna be!

    You bastards!

    Grenada? I member but not the guy for damn sure.
