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.


On Real Losers

I must be feeling better and I am! Items I glance at on the internets are annoying to me once more and that's not necessarily a good thing but a positive change in health status has occurred. YAY!!

J. Kerry can kiss my you know what. He is in no way a brain rattled John McCain and the specifics of the why with Kerry should not be needed for anyone who has a bit of a clue other than - - -

The way this man ran his campaign in '04 by not fighting back immediately when attacked with lies and then caving as well thus handing the presidency over to the likes of the bushes and the Cheney's is unforgivable given the results.

This man is not a friend of ours and when the current prez pulls the same shit for instance by apparently putting on the table part of the prize the 1% so dearly wants, that is the lessening our Medicare benefits - he is no friend either!

A huge NO to his becoming SOS. 



  1. I have shaken Kerry's hand twice and I was impressed with his presence, but he also is married to an heiress and I don't believe it's possible to fully relate to the average person once you've brought that into your life. I liked him very much as a "winter soldier," but I always felt he was a straw man, not presidential, nor intended to be, but they needed someone and he would do....

  2. I think his actions harmed our country too much and there are others besides him. He does not deserve the attention or the limelight again. When you screw up that much at that level you don't deserve other chances. There are worse that's for sure.

  3. Like Teresa'S term..."straw man". Fits him...
