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.


The Title Alone Is Proof

As U.S. troops prepare to leave, they rush to teach Afghans to hunt for roadside bombs 

The LINK to the bullshit if you care to read.

Proof to me anyway why certain people needed to and still must be held accountable for their actions in a wars based on the lies of a few that took a nation to war that killed tens of thousands. There is no pass on shit like this - never!!


  1. Here is my point:
    Osama bin-Laden is dead and al-Qaeda has been decimated. Karzai accusses us of communicating with the Taliban - his opposition; while pocketing billions of US dollars.
    I say disenegage and disengage now.

    Mission accomplished! Have enough damned sense to do what the Russians did before us and get the fuck out of Afghanistan!


    1. If only we would do that Sarge I'd go to town get all pissed up and be somebody.

  2. Oh,
    Dad drove a '53 Desoto - traded that for a "54 Chevy...


  3. I didn't read it, but what I thought about was all the landmines in Afghanistan I've read about.

    Also, when I was a girl, my family had a beige Desoto.

  4. I know all kinds of things about cars but not these cars. I don't remember anybody even having one.
