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.


"Supercommittee On Brink Of Failure" Really!

That is part of the header I just saw and will not read nor link to. There is no doubt as the deadline looms it will become another example of just how far backwards we have gone. It's a given this was going to be the result from the inception. Like bama reaching across again wanting to get along for the last three years only to have repug steel toed boot slammed up his ass. All this is only a diversion so the real issues are never discussed in the way they need to be. You can basically write the script for our government.

Now the second part and the script. Just say they got the first part accomplished. If for a second one thinks this group who are in the 1% group too could make the decisions we know need to be made you'd be living a delusion.

Our government has been and is now and will be in the future as well incapable of making quality legislation. We are in huge trouble. 


  1. It's sick isn't it Tom? Super committee my rear, super scum is more like it.

    They do not care about us or doing the right thing only about there party and pugs only want Obama and us and our version of America to fail so they can get bush's elitist version back on line.

    goftoar It turns my stomach, man are we in trouble.

  2. It's not hard to figure this out as it the same all the time Jim. We are not wrong.

  3. Here is the only Hollywood script that we need to know.


    The bread and circus act will continue until there is no more.
