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.


Someone Else's But Sure As Hell Not Mine

These things are all over the damn place with  nonsensical drivel similar to this. It's tempting to put one of my own up but then you become a problem ya see.



  1. Well he was wounded long before my transgressions, so God had to know I would transgress and is OK with it, in fact if we didn't transgress then he killed his own son for nothing, a mistake, or it might even look like abuse, murder. The coherence of the myth relies on continuous sin and cruelty, and that we ignore the all powerful hero in the myth will do nothing to stop what he has the power to stop. Evil is more powerful than the hero, evil cannot be stopped in this myth. Never, if it could be, churchs would go bankrupt. It is often said if there wasn't a god then man would invent one, I say if there wasn't a devil man would invent one, without the devil who would they pray against, he is the moneymaker - the fundraiser focus, he is as Obama for the GOP and Rove for the Dems.

  2. If those Jalapenos at the top are out of your garden then God definitely is on your side and you don't need a sign. Mine failed in the greenhouse. Too cold here for peppers. But the green ones, the spindly, crooked ones grew not bad.

    1. Hell Tony - I can't grow fingernails let alone something like this. They are a friends.

  3. I see the sign as a miracle... It got you to post something!! hahaha

  4. Another stunning header! The colors the shapes OUTSTANDING!

    PS...just don't look at the signs...I don't. :)


  5. Just like the assholes who used to have a scripture verse in the end zones at football games they're speaking in a code non-believers don't know, so it's stupid.

  6. It just gets old and that simple twit tebow should not have been allowed to do the shit he did not even once.
