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.


Been Saying It For Years!

"We are a nation of medicine chest junkies!" And that is and has been a fact and of course not spoken of because the feds are after da pot ya see.

The numbers are truly alarming.

Blind eyes have been turned for years for any number of reasons all of which have been very wrong. 

14,800 OD's four years ago in that year alone and at national and state level it is impossible to have a rational discussion on this problem because the dialog is determined by the very ones who caused the 14,800 deaths in 2008.

If you think positive change is gonna happen concerning this you are wrong. If you think after the election problems like this will be addressed in an intelligent way if at all you will be even more wrong.

What you can be 100% sure of is that the fed's war against da pot will continue in full force.


  1. That article hints at this, but I think part of the reason we're seeing so much of this now is that it's easier to treat pain than it is the underlying symptoms. That, plus the medical system in America is now far more transaction based than it used to be. It used to be about results - healthy people, in other words. Unfortunately, that's not the way health insurance pays for things, and it isn't what makes those big medical concerns profitable.

  2. That and also Colorado has a form of legalization of da pot on the ballot in November.

    I think of the times I was hurting and md's would not prescribe the strong stuff.

    One thing for sure is that this is huge and I continue to be a criminal in the eyes of da law.

  3. Another wonderful header!


  4. My spouse, who is an RN at a very busy hospital, says the number one issue he deals with is patient pain. Pain from post-surgical procedures and chronic diseases. Treating patient pain is one of the biggest advances of modern medicine. However, there is a push-back from busy-body Republican members in the US Congress who keep trying to pass legislation to make the drugs used to treat pain more difficult for doctors and patients to get. Rep. Mary "Douchebag" Bono (R-CA) is one of these busy-bodies.

  5. I'm very tired of these fuckers getting their way almost always. It may be fair to say Limbo the pig boy had a bunch to do with this as well.

    Our world does not count only theirs and if we don't do it their way punishment must be metered out..

  6. Meanwhile, the number of people who've died of marijuana overdose continues its tremendous rate of, uhm, no growth: zero. Zero people have died of marijuana overdose. It's medically impossible. You'd have to smoke your weight in marijuana during the course of a day to get enough THC in your bloodstream to reach lethal levels, and even Willie Nelson's never managed that (heh!).

    Yet marijuana is illegal, and oxycontin, which has killed thousands, is legal. Amazing. Simply amazing.

  7. That is an incredible statistic. It's hard not to be cynical.
