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.

Domestic Terrorism Propane Style

If I were to need propane that necessity would cost $4.50 a gallon. A few weeks ago I filled at what I thought was a high price of $2.35. This is unprecedented to my recollection. I've seen no stories at national level but that means little if anything. This is huge.WHY??

It's all right here -
The Missouri Propane Gas Association said the rising costs were caused by higher exports and increased domestic demand due to colder weather and large crop yields. It said propane production has risen because of improved fracking technology, which caused companies to seek more overseas buyers. That leaves less available domestically.


This is sick shit and there's probably fair amount of credibility here and if so that should be criminal but like always nothing will happen.

They do things like this because they know from the beginning there will be no accountability. Like the killer bush bastards and Irak.

It gets soooo old!

  5. The same thing will happen with gasoline. More drilling and better mpg cars has lowered prices 70cents the last 2 years, but they are making contracts with foreign customers and seeking approval to export more. This will drive the price back up for us. Barclay's bank said so today, exporting will return us to those $4 or higher days. Energy independence can never be achieved until we get off fossil fuel and start using the sunshine and wind that lands free in our own neighborhood, or our own yard.
