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.


What Killing Two With A Cell Phone Gets You These Days

This is an update to a post on 6/29/13 that now has a resolution. This person was reaching for her cell phone.

The driver of an SUV that was involved in a head-on collision in Louisville that killed a father and his daughter and seriously injured another child was sentenced to one year in jail after accepting a plea deal Friday.

Not sure what's right but this seems a bit light. I just try to be so careful and not do certain things at certain times while driving that hopefully this never happens. People and their damn phones! It gets to be old shit seeing sooo many people with their faces in their phones like most of the time.


  1. Walked into a Chipotle the other day. While waiting in line, I observed all the folks already eating their burritos/whatever...anyway, saw families with their children eating silently as the parents either were talking on the phone or texting. Friends at tables, each with a phone to their ear or again, texting. People in line were texting... Made me sad

  2. Fly.
    Tis the Sergeant,
    While up in Indianapolis I was behind a car in the left turn lane through three light changes - pounding on the horn! She was on her cell phone. Finally, a Marion Co.
    Sheriff car showed up because she was backing up traffic onto the ramp off I-465.
    Upside, marijuana and cocaine in the trunk.

    I never texted until when Dad was in the hospital - It is easier. But, not while driving...


  3. I believe it and yes to NOT doing this shit while driving. I don't want to hurt myself and especially other. What the hell!

    As part of the badges response to fighting against Amendment 64 (da pot) was a sudden increase in DUID's.

  4. Twice I've had a driver back up suddenly while talking on the cell phone and almost back into my car in a parking lot. Talking on the phone can wait. It used to when you had to go home to talk!
