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.


Payback In Arizona

Say what you want - write what you want but many around the country are totally disgusted with the amount of hate and animosity you produce against other people not like you.

You know the ones who don't drive cars with gold trim for instance.

Part of the reason too is that not as many are coming to your backward bigoted piece of shit state.

Phoenix's golf program is stuck in a virtual sand trap with its six golf courses having accumulated a $14.8 million deficit, according to a new report. The Arizona Republic reports that the recent city report blamed the deficit on the diminishing popularity of golf nationwide and the slowing economy.


  1. Luv that turtle!!! btw, I've tried posting comments several times, but couldn't get past the capcha. old eyes?

  2. It's a real Pain TMoon. Turning it off is no good and comment moderation is a pain as well. Some real moderation with capcha would be huge.

  3. LOVE THE TURTLE!!!! Do you have many around there?


  4. Never seen one around here. This was out in the of Iowa on a gravel road. It's common to see them and years ago there were snappers as well and in the same numbers. It's still a swamp in places back there.

  5. The economy is getting bad all over, I'm afraid. The middle class is shrinking, and the things the middle class used to do to entertain themselves are now becoming the things they can't afford to do as much of anymore. It's true of golf courses, and theatres.

    Much as I don't like AZ's policies regarding immigrants (and anyone who looks like them) this is something the rest of us are feeling, too.

    [on captchas - this was my experience, though it took a bit longer for the first spam to arrive.]

  6. I've been around several who are optimistic and I would not ever attempt to convince them other wise. We need that. The only thing that could change after the election is that it could get much worse.

    Always said I'd go into Arizona as far as Flag. Do these captchas need to be so difficult?

  7. New Mexico had a lull in golfing, but it's picked up quite a bit this year. Arizona might have more golfers if it would lower their prices. I wonder if they employ those of hispanic descent as grounds keepers?

  8. I'd bet plenty it's 80-90% Pat.
