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 It Is Not A Miracle

It's their state. It's their newspaper. It's their belief. It gets old seeing this word thrown around so easily.

"Miracles do happen," said West Jordan Police Chief Douglas Diamond. "I'm not going to say it's not divine intervention. I myself believe it is divine intervention."

Chief Diamond goes on to say.
"He has that sixth sense that a lot of cops have" 

These people themselves every one of them are the very ones making a mockery of this tragic event in that there was a "miracle" that happened here in finding this murderer.

A more fitting "miracle" would have been saving this little girls life.


  1. I always figure, if it brings them comfort to believe this way, then fine... However, if voices, from a supreme being, tells them to run for office, etc..., then I'm on high alert.

  2. If God has the power to perform a miracle in discovering and arresting the perp, why didn't God perform a miracle and save the little girl's life in the first place?

  3. I agree with Fearguth


  4. The part I like is where he says, "That sixth sense that a lot of cops have." My first husband was a cop. If he'd had a sixth sense, he'd have known how unhappy I was being married to a cop.;)
