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.


99'er War Working Well for The 1%

You betcha - probably better than our other war fronts.

If you as an American and using the same analogy that worked so well against those opposed to the bush bastard's war for lies that if you did not support it you were not a true American.

So - having said that how can you repug lovers of war call yourselves patriotic Americans when your support for war is greater than feeding the hungry in our own country?


  1. I saw this report, too, and I don't see anything changing any time soon. It's easier to feed the hungry with food stamps than have to give up their wars. A small trade off for being able to continue with with business as usual, and it is Big Business.

    Your header of the pictographs is outstanding!

  2. Change? Hell no it's not and anyone who is the least bit aware of the dynamics involved understands that as you do so well.

    I've been lax in putting good pictures to the side and have to hustle to find one before I fall asleep in the chair. This is cool and even though another was used from the same time this one is better. Of course I forget what this is called but not where it's at. Two miles north of Thompson,Utah which is a mile north of I70 west of Grand Junction.

    Anyone who drives this route please take the time to go see this amazing panel!!

  3. Great header amigo. I dunno much about poverty but I recognize good petroglyphs when I see them. Jules

  4. Thanks for that Jules! This place is something else. I got snow and am headed out to shovel a bit. It's 40 out.

  5. So, we end all of the wars, take that money and to help the lazy people who won't get out of their own way. I'm all for it as long as we require everyone who gets this money to get a job and fend for themselves. I just hope that getting out of the "WHORES WARS" doesn't come back to bight us right in the ass. I mean really, there are some bad people other than those in the US who would gladdly harm everyone in this country. Not everyone lives in never never land, where everything will be happy without wars.

  6. You put a lot of words in your own mouth ano. None of which came from me.

    This is about the hypocrisy of those who support never ending war.

  7. There was once a time when poverty was found primarily in cities.

    Now, poverty has reared its ugly head in the suburbs. Yes, the rise in poverty in 2011 is chiefly in the suburbs.

    But it is good to know Barry is very worried about the quality of life of the Afghan people.

    The American people? Not so much.

  8. You're correct about the caring and I take your word about the burbs as I can't speak to that but it has to be correct given the numbers.
