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.


Wind Dynamics

I do not know the whole story on this assistance given to company's who make wind generators but would bet plenty it does not come even close to what "big oil" gets from you and me.

Held hostage with with nutter lies and media assistance just like most everything else in DC. I do not want to see these jobs lost around the country in this industry for the obvious numerous reasons.


  1. I don't know either, but Alexander's wrong. Wind energy is far cleaner than oil, and deserves support on that basis alone. It will save us money in the long run.

  2. Of course all of that Cujo and more. Logical productive discussions are a thing of the past when the business at hand is to transfer more of the wealth from the little guy to the 1%.

  3. Wind is great to generate electricity. California and Texas (to name two states) have huge "wind farms" that produce green electricity.

    However, that said, wind won't power our cars. So every time I see Barry on TV yapping about wind when asked what he plans to do about $5.00 a gallon gas, I realize he doesn't know what the hell he's talking about.

    1. I went and looked after you mentioned Cali and Texas Chris and what I read they had Iowa in 3rd. I was sure it was 2nd and had been for some time. So I didn't say anything. Just now I saw THIS from the cornfield that says it goes Texas,Iowa and California with the most jobs in Iowa.

      There are 12 or 15 supposed to be built just south of here maybe 6 miles. I will enjoy looking at them if I'm here.
