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.


No They Are Not Being Picked On

Meaning and will use the term energy finder and/or producers of energy. What I've seen and read they find it very hard to do business because of the "regulatory" issues encountered.

Look at the #'s below and go spend some time around these areas much of which is way out nowhere and you will be blown away by what you see.

So sick of the untruths it gets hard to give a shit sometimes. 



  1. There was a time when SUWA made a lot of headway in fighting against this bullshit, but it seems now that whatever They want to do, They just do and will go on sucking the life out of this planet.

  2. Are the pockets of gas so small that all those holes are necessary? If so, I wonder what the typical life of a gas well is. One can only wonder how it would have been different if Ralph Nader had been elected president 20 years ago.

  3. I'm with Jan...Ralph Nader for President...or someone like him. Anyone out there....anyone??!!


  4. There used to be a guy around here that did constant "letters to the editor" in the paper to try to expose stuff like this...he passed several years ago. Nothing ever changed, but at least he had a voice. Sometimes, I want to take up his cause... But, in reality, I don't think anyone listens.

  5. Thank you ladies!!

    Most of us want different different in some way. A person would have to see the ongoing expansion of this industry themselves to better understand. I look at these new permit #'s and cringe. It literally stinks out there in places in a similar way it does where there are many hog confinement centers.

    There are times from what I understand the air quality becomes very bad.

    These corporations are not having problems expanding their business. it's just not the case.

    I hate to be such a sour puss Linda but there ain't nobody coming to help us.
