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.


The Sackless IRS

For sometime it has been my hope the IRS would step in and do its job in respect to religion and their institutions participating in politics. One bunch of believers is even challenging them to do it so they can take the case to court and get the green light for total involvement in the political process. That won't be needed - why?

Go check it out for yourself.  LINK

They have done nothing the IRS. They are not going to do a fucking thing ever! They are not going to pursue the obvious law breakers but will make sure you and I pay every penny. If you hoped like myself that there could be some accountability for we the people who know and understand how negative the integration of religion into politics has been like myself quit hoping. All the hoping will not make this or many of the other things we need happen.

In this country in the last 10-15 years hoping for the good to come around more often than not is just another disappointment as the crazy bastards on the right wrapped in the flag carrying bibles and guns continue to get the upper hand on Reality. It sucks and it's a fact!


  1. Love, love, love your header this morning!!! Dang, I was really expecting your post to be about chick fil a... In reality there's an unlimited source of crap!!! geez.... Just turn on the news, open a paper-good grief!!! The chick fil a was the heated subject on fb yesterday.

  2. Thanks! I don't see much of that. Know a little but not much. The world around here is kinda small.
