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.


Supreme Being Closing Up Shops

How could HE allow this to happen?? I can not or do I want to hear from "believers" the reasoning for the Nonexistent Sky Being to do this to his "most faithful" because it wouldn't mean shit it's as simple as that.

Many were started because charlatan's were hoping they could make it to the big time and reap the benefits associated with mind screwing the mind screwed even more meaning fleecing them for as much as you can get.

I say tax the church's as the Tax Code states that are getting it and using it for political purposes. We all want that those of us anyway that actually have a clue as what should be done to make things better for a change. Let something go our way - know what I mean.

Looks like banks are taking a hit here too catering to the religiously insane. Fine by me and I know and understand there won't be any tax paying going on any time soon by these purveyors of nonsense. 


  1. I say tax all churches as we would any other property. We can then remit those taxes for the good works they do in their community. No good works no tax breaks and politics does not qualify.

  2. Yep - tax-exemption for religious entities is effectively an establishment of religion, with the govt deciding who does/doesn't qualify. took 'church' of scientology years of litigation to get 'recognized' as a religion deserving of tax-exempt status. tax 'em all & let 'em play politics all they want!

  3. The Church of Pedophilia, AKA, the Roman Catholic Church, is said to have commercial real estate holdings worth billions of dollars, as well as art and antiquities also worth untold billions.

    But they do nothing to step in an help keep open small, neighborhood churches in areas where congregations have aged and shrunk.

    The flip side of this is, many sold churches have been turned into lofts, providing interesting urban housing options for people.
