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.


Arpaio Intentionally Neglects Molested Childen

It has to be intentional when hundreds of cases go nowhere or are forgotten or just not followed up on. I suppose as an important man the effort to rid Aryzona of those damn illegals there's just not time in the day to help sexually molested children. This report is from 2007 and my guess it's probably close to the same now.  


  1. I take this very personal, because our store is in El Mirage.
    When his goons patrolled here, it is pure gestappo hell.
    On the last day of his contract he brought in his posse.
    Yes he has his own posse.
    He brought in helicopters, ram vehicle, buses, you name it.
    He blocked off streets, and sent his goons to knock on peoples doors.
    Customers came in and told me that they were sitting in their houses with all the lights off. They were scared to death.
    He has gotten away with this shit for years because these old red neck assholes keep voting for him.

  2. Sounds like there are a few pedo-sympathizers in Moldy Joe's department.

  3. I wonder how much the Mexican issue played into wrecking the economy if any. I think some probably.
