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.

'Miracles Really Do Happen, god Is Good :)'

On one of the three kidnappers Facebook page. I can only imagine what he thinks is a miracle.

He was a "good guy". He was this - he was that. I could care less.

Please can we get this out of the limelight quickly instead of showing the rest of the world just how exceptional we are and how important it is to have a god involved to point us in the right direction.

Meanwhile we have a totally dysfunctional government with many who are in it who believe in miracle's from the same guy the kidnapper does.

This shit ain't right and it's plain to see the god thing doesn't cut it. I share in the happiness of these girls. It's ended and they survived. That looks huge right now from here anyway.

  4. I never cease to be amazed at what human beings do to each other.

    Having often written that religion is like a Rorschach test, in which people see whatever they want to, things like this make it pretty clear that it's a big confirmation bias, too.

  5. The "this is good"video is very good and I'm going to put it up. There is no reasoning even with the truth.

  7. Impressive header. I think its time that I shut off the news again. So much news is bad -- government, media, psychos etc. I need a mind rest from it all. An overdose of all this can test ones sanity so here goes -- click! -- barbara

  8. geeze, this is exhausting isn't it, how the god thing gets run out in any and every disaster as the "good thing, the miracle, the proof". Well the miracle would have been if he had prevented evil instead of setting it up as a contest in the human mind. Anyone with a splinter handled hoe could have killed the snake in the garden, but he didn't, instead blaming the whole thing, for ever after, on women.

  9. You see - banging my head on a rock as I type that. Common sense/science and everything else is out the window when it comes to this.
