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.


Benny The Tweeter

This about sums it up.

Benny, who tweets in nine languages, stressed the potential of social media for the church as it struggles to keep followers and attract new ones amid religious apathy, competition from other churches and scandals that have driven the faithful away.

No linky to nonsense and notice how scandals is at the bottom of the list.

Be very careful out there kiddies when you hear from these robed men that have more than one agenda in mind.


  1. The Catholic church needs changes, all right! and being on twitter isn't the answer...

  2. That is for damn sure and a big yuk yuk too.

  3. Benny, who tweets in nine languages

    ROTFLMMFAO! I wonder how many tweet-minions His Highness has, to do his tweeting for him. Do you reckon they're specially ordained priests, or does he leave it for the lowly nuns? They'd have to be multi-lingual, natch!

    Don't get me started! lol

    1. How ever it's done you can damn well bet it ain't normal.

    2. lol That's right on, One Fly!

    3. After lol-ing so much, I remember things and suddenly sober-up. Like we were talking about the other day? Funny and sobering at the same time. It must be time for some Monty Python snippets again.

  4. Love your header!
