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.


Droneing On With More Lies

In respect to the drone that is in the Iranians hands the official says -

Yup - that takes care of that! Next -

A U.S. official says Iran will find it hard to exploit any data and technology aboard the captured CIA stealth drone because of measures taken to limit the intelligence value of drones operating over hostile territory.

You lying sacks of shit. Iran says up to a dozen have been brought down. And since "One American analyst ridiculed Iran’s capability, telling Defense News that the loss was “like dropping a Ferrari into an ox-cart technology culture.” is the mentality that our Empire has is exactly why we will never win if there anything to win at all.

I'm sick and tired of having to believe the bad guys more than my own in matters such as this.


  1. Yeah, Iran isn't a country without a class of highly trained scientists. I'm sure that they will be able to reverse engineer quite a bit from the drone.

  2. Governments lie, but ours seems to be lying more than necessary.

  3. It's too much as has been for years. I/we are not wrong. I say these examples are pure lies. Or am I wrong? Please help me out here. And I mean total lies.

  4. After getting to know a couple of Iranians I don't trust ANYTHING either governments say about each other.

  5. The biggest liar always wins.

    And you know who that is.

    Love ya!

    Shovel much yet?


  6. Not so much. It's pretty nice out. In two days it will be better.
