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.


We Got Another One/Ones

Yup those baddies who don't love our freedoms who shot down our helo of hero's.

"We tracked them as we would in the aftermath of any operation, and we dealt with them with a kinetic strike, and in the aftermath of that we have achieved certainty that they, in fact, were killed in that strike," Allen said. He spoke by video from his Kabul headquarters. 

This kinetic stuff works real damn good. They killed us and we killed them only less. That must mean we're winning. Now a former commander thinks we should stay through next summer cuz the fighting gets real good this time of year. And that's as we're "pulling out" another lie of course. No one has left.

Saddle up sheep!


  1. What you've got to really enjoy most of all (all right - the only real enjoyment) is the Spy Vs. Spy aspect. Remind anyone of Mad Magazine yet? I know it does me.

    So far in our strange, spurious story, we have the extremely odd American street-dancing crowds after 12 AM due to the killing of someone undoubtedly long dead and his consequent burial at sea over a hundred miles away over mountains (from a helicopter!), and then the henchmen being blown up in another spurious "battle."


    (Fiction writers don't stand a chance with these guys.)

    More news (snooze) at 11:00.

    Tune in to Faux!

    Love ya, baby!


  2. Bears an uncomfortable similarity to the Simon and Garfunkel song on the Parsley Sage Rosemary and Thyme album, "The Seven Oclock News" - Background is an actual news broadcast August 3, 1966.

    The US already beenthere-donethat in bodycount wars but the world's too young to recall the results.

  3. It's fair to say we have learned nothing as a country Jules.

  4. And now we've supposedly killed the bad guys who supposedly killed our good guys and it's so absurd it's almost laughable. "Wag the Dog," all over again.

  5. Exactly TE. And very few seem to even care or be aware enough to understand even a little bit of the dynamics happening.

    Everyone have a good week end and thanks for the visit.

  6. It's been over 50 years since we've had a POTUS who was "allowed" to speak the "truth" and his name was Eisenhower.

    "money talks and shit walks"

    Hi Onefly, i'm still here and i might just still someday play golf with you and, I'll listen to your rants and raves.

  7. Sounds like a hell of a good idea.
