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.

Nurses And Tape

So you're a nurse and you tape a patients mouth shut - and laugh about it. What happens? Well in this case you get fired and rightfully so. If you are the one on the receiving end and can not defend against that happening to you then it becomes torture. I say that knowing and understanding that if you refuse to obey those who can do this to you legally chances are good there is torture ahead for you.

BUT - - - -
Many many have jobs where torture is part of it. What do they get? Medals/awards/promotions/raises you know shit like that.

  3. Funny you should ask. My wife and I have been scanning 35mm slides for the past couple of days. We haven't tried to scan the 110 format slides.

  5. It works! Our scanner is an Epson Perfection 2450 that's several years old. I used VueScan software (the original Epson software doesn't work with Windows Vista or Windows 7) to run the scanner and Photoshop Elements for cropping.

  6. What's the quality? I assume they are in 35mm format with the 110 embedded in it or not because I believe they made a few projectors that would work with those tiny things.
