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.

Damn Near 10% - How About You

You betcha that's what my measly amount in my 401 declined by yesterday. Real special that is given the timing and all. Of course it lost a bunch once before but came back a bit. I am not the cause of this but ultimately I am responsible for what is done with these funds. I can little afford this just as others very small players can either. Thanks DC you pieces of shit.

These funds were going to be removed soon anyway  If there are any suggestions from you guys on what to do now fire away as I welcome them. I'm inclined to take it right now before I lose another 10% or more.

Am I proud of my country? Not at this time and not even a little bit.

  1. The big guys like to spook the herd into taking losses so they can buy low. It is bouncing back today and will probably yo-yo around until the hedge funds make their profit targets. If it is coming out soon, I say wait and watch. Sell out on a good day.

  3. One,
    I got nothing specific. I think most of the stuff will get back to recent levels by EOM. If you are cashing out just look for a good day.

    If you feel like being a daredevil, I know of a fund that invests in Real Estate Mortgage Backed Securities RMBS. I think they cherry picked the crap mortgages that the Banksters dumped on the Fed, paid 10 cents on the dollar or something. It has an 18% dividend. The one I know has only agency backed stuff, you know Freddie & Fannie. Are you feeling lucky today, well are you Fly? ;))

  5. When (IF) your fund gets back to "recent levels", you have still taken it up the pooper without as much as a "thanks" or bit of mayonaise.

    They say "buy low - sell high". I don't know about YOU, but I bought my home and property 20 years ago (one could say low in this case) and if it sells, will sell lower than I bought back when the buying was good.

    I want a LOT OF PEOPLE IN PRISON.

    LISSEN UP MR. PRESIDENT! START WITH BUSH AND CHENEY AND WORK YOUR WAY THROUGH THE CRIMINAL FINANCIAL WIZARDS AND LAWYERS AND POLITICIANS WHO DID THIS TO US! IF YOU DON'T YOU WILL FOREVER BE KNOWN AS THE PRESIDENT WHO HAD NO BALLS!

  6. It came back a K. Down 2500.

    That's fairly amazing about your house Mr. N. and of course it isn't selling. I hate to say how much I'm losing with mine. I just hope it happens in two weeks and if it doesn't I will be in deep deep shit.

    And that's what I was saying with the "ol war whore post below". Much of the reason we're in the shape we're in is that there is no accountability and all these guys know it.

    Yes we're losing - big time and the dims are just about as guilty as the murdering repugs.

  7. Take it out whenever you can and don't trust these thugs anymore.

    They are planning much bigger down days to scare us with soon.

    Read my next essay where PCR tells all.

    Love you,
