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.

There's no surprise here. The booze is a huge negative. This is like many things. Those who abuse drugs die earlier. Those who are not abusers and choose to use other things than pot get along just fine as well.

Personally I'm not one of the 9% below but---- would I take a couple pharmaceutical grade white crosses from yesteryear to stay awake later then when it just gets dark out to peer into the heavens for a few hours hoping to see the unusual? In a heart beat. What about some of that very mild make you laugh till your belly hurt chocolate mescaline floating around about the same time. You betcha! Somebody come around and lay a line of primo toot in front of Fly - well probably yes. Will I pay for any? Of course not. Do I have a problem? Only with those dumb asses who think I do. Am I or any others a bad person because of that personal choice we might make? Only in the mind of badges and stoopids who refuse to accept reality. Don't even try to bring up any law breaker shit. 

According to statistics from the most recent National Survey on Drug Use and Health, about 7 percent of Americans ages 35 to 49 and more than 9 percent of those ages 50 to 59 reported use of a drug other than marijuana sometime in the past year. -------people who occasionally use drugs like cocaine, amphetamines and opiates over the course of their lives are more common than anyone might suspect - some perfectly functional middle-agers still turn to the drugs of their youth.


  1. I'm sure that a good many of them are wingers, too. Hypocrisy comes as naturally to the Lamers as breathing (and knuckle dragging) does.

  2. Changing lanes briefly . . . how about that "fear" in Syria?

    I can hardly keep up with which brownish folks we hate the most
