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 The Bullshitter

Well bama lovers stick this where the sun don't shine.

The Pentagon is poised to move at least 4,000 soldiers from Iraq to Kuwait at the end of the year

When you say things like this “will definitely be home for the holidays" you damn well better know what the hell you're saying.

This move is part of a "still-developing Pentagon strategy". We all know we're never going to leave or be able to force our war-loving politicians to stop this nations imperialism around the globe. This man knew this when he said what he did.

There are going to be a lot of broken hearts and tears from many when they learn mom or dad or both will not be home for the holidays.  


  1. "We'll Be in Kuwait for Christmas"--that's the new song Obama just wrote.

  2. and bama lovers wonder why and blame me/us for his unpopularity and troubles.

  3. A while ago, Obama cut the number of U.S. troops in Iraq by half and renamed the mission.

    Then, proud as a little peacock, he went about crowing how he had ended the combat mission in Iraq.

    Shortly after being elected, Obama tripled the number of U.S. troops in Afghanistan.

    Bush had his "surge" and damn it, Barry wanted a surge too.

    Perhaps I have a brain tumor that renders me unable to comprehend the larger picture but didn't Bush, ostensibly send troops to Afghanistan with a mission to capture Osama bin Laden?

    Well, bin Laden is dead, so maybe an O-Bot can break it down. Why are we still in Afghanistan?

    As for Obama, he wouldn't know the truth if it slapped him across his face.

    Oh snap!!! Did I really say this?

  4. It just sucks and there's hardly a fucking thing we can do besides bitch. I will never accept this shit.

  5. My son's best friend, whose National Guard unit was called up recently, is in Kuwait as I write this. We've had a presence there for a long time, we'll just be adding to those numbers. Keep 'em close by, just in case... And if we don't have an excuse to act, we'll create one.

  6. That is for damn sure Teresa.

  7. 2012 is a tough one.

    A true 'lesser than two evils' election.

    I have raged that I wouldn't vote for Obama under any circumstances. But, I sure as hell don't want Mitt "We're not sure what the cause of climate change" Romney to be the next president either.

    I'm leaning to a vote for Barry.

  8. Said I wasn't and will stick with that unless something changes what ever the hell that would be.

    The reason the no sticks is that I'm running out of time to just say no to terrible presidential choices and the who process as a whole. Don't get me wrong as I will always vote.

  9. Comes under the heading of, Run ya' 'bout like ya' figgered, amigo.
