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.


The Three Imbeciles On Iraq Troop Withdrawal

I think you three peckerheads should go on a walkabout in and around Fallugah and check them gains out - otay?

Sens. John McCain, R-Ariz., Joe Lieberman, I-Conn., and Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., issued a statement Tuesday that they were "deeply troubled" about the drawdown level. "This is dramatically lower than what our military leaders have consistently told us over the course of repeated visits to Iraq that they require, and that is needed to support Iraq in safeguarding the hard-won gains that our two nations have achieved at such great cost," they said in the statement obtained by NBC News.


  1. I suppose I shouldn't be laughing so hard, but sometimes the funniest things are the most absurd and these three pansy asses telling us they're deeply troubled by the drawdown evokes the same thought from me. I think a walkabout in Fallujah is a very good idea. Envisioning Lindsey Graham and Joe Lieberman in an Iraq walkabout does my heart good. McCain should just know better.

  2. I guess we always have to remember that almost every elected person in our national guvmit speak ONLY for the corporations and they are no more than shills for that purpose. They serve no purpose for "we the people" at all. I gave up on McCain long ago. He got a pass on much becaue of all the blows to the head he took. Not anymore.

    I will be over to your place but I'm dealing with a learning curve with this new Mac and member I was born in a cornfield.

    I working on a post about the Two -Bar ranch in Browns park. I was up there again. That's where Ann Bassett's first hubby Hi Bernard worked. Found out some other things too.

    Two days of no sun and 1.3" yesterday and last night. That's huge for here.

    Thanks T!

  3. Back in the day, they were called 'Stooges'. Now they're called 'Senators'. Sheesh!

  4. Why any one listens to these clowns is beyond me.
    They are totally null and void.
    They were proven wrong on everything that they have advocated.
    Mc-Insane offends me the most.
    No, No, wait.
    Lieberman takes the cake.
    No Graham is nuttier than both of them.
    Together they make the perfect fruit cake.
    Lets see all three walk through Fallujah UNescorted.

  5. The Stooges are just mouthpieces for the Pentagon generals who want to continue the Imperial Presence in Iraq as part of their continuing Quest for Glory. The Merchants of Death f/k/a The MIC don't care so much since they can still sell their "goods" through their Sales Dept.

  6. Mighty easy to talk tough when you don't have a care in the world.
