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.

But that won't happen when guns get the job done better than just good.

One in thirty deaths in Holland are from euthanasia with most choosing to end their lives due to cancer 

Around 3 per cent of all deaths in the Netherlands are now by euthanasiaThe country last year introduced mobile euthanasia unitsIn 2002 it became the first country since Nazi Germany to legalise it

  1. If you can't get better and are in agony - why not? Same for the wretched people in those damned nursing homes - We have a family friend who is in a home, sits alone and forgotten in a well chair and is brain dead.
    It is cruel.

    1. There are so many in our age group who want this changed Sarge. Is not closing ones eyes for the last time peacefully and in a dignified manner better than a gun. Of course it is. But not here as our exceptional qualities do not allow such things. Just more shit I'm tired of.

    1. As with all my posts the highlighted portion is the link Watch your cursor. For some reason in this case the bottom part highlighted is not a link - only the first part in this case.

      I guess Angelo's computer still does not work. Do you know how he's doing?

  6. Thanks. Got the link now. Don't know if you have noticed but the Daily Mail is the most reactionary publication in the UK. They pay well though and get the occasional good scoop. Haha.
