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.


Another Colorful Robe Wearer Bites The Dust

An important one too.

Britain's most senior Roman Catholic cleric, Cardinal Keith O'Brien, is stepping down as Archbishop of St Andrews and Edinburgh. It follows allegations - which he contests - of inappropriate behaviour towards priests dating from the 1980s. 

A bit of a twist here as he resigned because of allegations of "inappropriate behavior" towards other robes.

What the hell did he do to little boys because it's more than fair to say he probably was involved with them as well.

Sick bastards!


  1. The church is busy with a lot of tidying up right now. There's no shortage of messes. The popes butler's papers indicate the vatican is full of backstabbing clicks, power struggles, stolen money, gays, inner circle pickets, everything that makes a good story about a din of satin worshippers.

  2. And as soon as those sick bastards (ALL of them ... and their faithful flock) believe that they are Human, and therefore susceptible to Human Failure, the Holy Roman Catholic Church will go the way of the Roman Empire. Caligula would have made a HELLUVA Priest!

  3. BTW .. I read that the hardline anti-gay O'Brien made many open sexual advances to other Priests during his reign ....

  4. It never seems to end does it and you see nothing of the rank and file so to speak demanding a thing.

    I guess if you believe god will take care of it you're off the hook.

    There is no being nice or agree to get along on this shit.

    Then just Benny and just one other robe will view the vatican "probe" results. SHEEZ!

  5. I am not a Catholic- But, a Presbyterin (catholics without the Hail Mary's and a Pope. I met this young "lay" ministers while home on leave from Germany. He was the preacher's understudy - a pastor in training to attend to the flock.
    Well, month's later it was learned that the good man was attending to ram's and ewes's daughters. Oh, and to his credit, some fine to the bone teenaged twat!
    Did the man go to jail? No, he was transfered to church in Arizona.
    It isn't just the catholics.

    Now if you know of somewayward girls; Send them my way..

    Friar Sarge

  6. You're first on the list Sarge.

  7. The phrase 'inappropriate behaviour' should be wound back to being just plaine 'abuse'. O'Brien is one of two prominent people, one a politico, who are accused of this crap in the current week in the UK.
