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.


Get Your Ammo Fix

It's hard work if you're a gunner. These things don't shoot peas ya know. So many wannabe shooters - too few bullets.

To make sure everyone gets their chance of building their stockpile to protect themselves from all sorts of perceived evils Wallyworld was forced to take the socialist route.

Due to overwhelming demand, Walmart stores across the nation are limiting customers to three boxes of firearm ammunition a day.


  1. "three boxes a day" - ??? I read that too. It's just a joke isn't it?

  2. No yokes when it comes to defending your freedoms TMoon.

  4. "Guns Don't Kill People ... BULLETS Do!" I'd like to be spread out on that beach (Beautiful Photo, 'Fly) in your header today. Snow/Ice here in mid Tenn.

  5. Oh dear, this is dreadful. Should I get on the waiting list at Walmart even though I have no guns and in fact despise them?


  6. I do wish sometimes, though, that I had a grenade launcher or some such item. Something to take out a predator drone, for example.

    (And anyway, just what IS a well regulated militia? Do our president and cohorts really mean to pit our military against us? Must we really have yet another civil war? And what about the oath to defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic? Is the Constitution really just a goddamn piece of paper?)

  7. Under the header picture when it's a different color it's a link. There was no one there but it is a interesting place and can be dangerous the way it sounds.

    How can you win when the one side is ready to shoot at any time. I have guns and sure as hell not worried about the things they are.

    Shooting guns is expensive and must to some be like the booze. Get them together and it becomes very special ya see.

  8. A gun shop here limits purchases to one box per caliber per day and, for reloaders, one canister of powder and 300 primers per day. As a result, they have stuff nobody else has (try finding small pistol primers anywhere).

    It is fucking insane. Nobody has proposed Federal ammo restrictions. But that doesn't stop the fools from vacuuming the shelves.

  10. Right hand on the Bible. Swearing in. The Constitution.

    Apparently, it's all bullshit. The Constitution really IS a big, huge bunch of BULLSHIT.
