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.


Not Just A Bomb - A Ticking Bomb

Defective electronic parts getting in the Pentawhores parts supply putting "our troops at risk".  And the bad guy is China.

Our country's largest budget  expenditure is for the war machine we feed better than anything else.We love war but cannot produce all that we need to sustain the Empire and need to outsource to our biggest challenger in the quest to rule the most of any other country.

You can't support yourselves in the quest for world dominance and depend on your competitor to do so - - - it's long past due you get the hell out of the business of forever war and find other ways to get along rather than using guns!


  1. So war stuff that doesn't work gives both aid an comfort to the enemy and we are at war. Shouldn't we indict for treason all those parts manufacturers who offshored that work?

  2. If only someone was accountable for something starting along about '03.

  3. I bet Blackwater doesn't have defective parts in their machinery.

  4. That is a great point Jan and probably has merit.

  5. Yeah, when I was over fighting to destroy the gun smoking Saddam Bin Laden's mushroom farms, something along the lines of 50% of the JDAMs dropped did not function and had to be hit with an additional JDAM in order to keep the explosives from being cannibalized and used in IEDs.

    Of course, what kind of success rate cna you expect when you're only willing to spend 10 Trillion Dollars are hardware! Yeesh!

  6. That's more than just interesting. They don't talk about that on tb I bet. Thanks for that GeG and I double that yeesh.
