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 Defense Dept Will Not Grind To A Halt

Glancing over this piece it makes it appear as though the military and most of what it does will not function.

Bullshit and don't believe it for a second. If some shooting needs to be done you can damn well bet we'll be able to do that and much more as required. You betcha!

I want to see much more of our defense budget shot out the barrels of all the guns we don't need and the money be used here at home.  We can adapt.

The nonsense coming down the road will be almost unbearable. Count on that too.

Tanks would not roll, fighter jets would be grounded and aircraft carriers might be stuck dockside. In addition, the Defense’s Department 800,000-member civilian workforce likely would go without paychecks at times. By the end of September, two-thirds of U.S. Army combat troops would be “unacceptable”. I think we’re going to have serious readiness effects. I don’t see where we’re going to get the money. We’re going to have to cut back on training significantly.” “The effects of sequestration on the military will be devastating, but on our civilians, it will be catastrophic,”.

  5. Your defence 'policies' are as bonkers as ours. The UK military could be reduced by 50% with all the savings entailed, and nobody would notice outside the military. The footprint abroad would probably be enhanced.

  7. It's time Obama called the Grover Norquist bullshit heaad on and let the nation see just how much government is needed and needs to be paid for by taxing the rich.

  8. Wouldn't that be nice if he took positions like that Pat. He has to be very careful because he is more one of them than one of us.
