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 Women Finally Said Something Right

Appearing in an interview Thursday on NBC's "Today" show, Mrs. Bush was asked how she felt about Jeb, the former governor of Florida, seeking the presidency in 2016.
Mrs. Bush replied, quote, "We've had enough Bushes."

Watch it happen!


  1. One could argue that we've had too many.

  2. I wonder if she is in the hot seat in the "Bush" family now? I second her response. -- barbara

  3. The boys wouldn't throw Ma under the bus - or would they.

  4. It's just more misdirection, obfuscation and PR before Jebbie announces.

    After all, who else have they got?

    Love ya!


    1. He's the most electable because he has brain matter. Plus he is fluent in Spanish I believe unlike his chimp brother who could only order beer but "was a Spanish speaker".

      Mediocre Merka would love to have another one of the bastards as their leader. That would be another way to show our exceptionalism.

    2. Jeb won't be the 2016 GOP candidate because he has brain matter. His opponents will pull up proof of him doing sensible and reasonable things as governor of Florida, which will utterly disqualify him from winning Republican primaries because only utter loons can win Republican primaries nowadays. Wait and see. I'll put money on it :).

    3. Silly me. I would bet money they already know.
