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.


Lockout The Dumb Ass Badges

This has been on my mind because it goes on across this country. People who carry guns and a license to use it at will are able to manufacture their own reasons for fear and actions thus justifying their own job. Bullshit! Here is the link to this  multiple jurisdictional action that took place in schools many miles from where the "threat" started from pictures on facebook that had absolutely no association with these schools - only that this just plain stupid teenage girl attended one of them a year or so before.

Why all this these goings on? The badges "perceived" this as a threat - that's all it takes.
The post from the 15-year-old girl, as described by the sheriff’s office in a release, showed “pictures of a person with a gun to their head, someone drinking bleach through a straw, and two other pictures.” 

One badge said “She was having a yuck moment and expressed herself in the wrong way that had a ripple effect,” Not really asshole as you decided to give this the good 'ol boy "ripple effect".

In the process "district’s Power School notification program alerted parents" whatever the hell that is. Part of that message “due to a direct threat". WTF anyway. Somebody oughtta have their ass kicked for scaring parents and a lot others. We operate on fear and boy does it get to be old shit!

Then there's the attaboy's - "a business manager for Dolores Schools,"praised the community for staying calm and helpful in a stressful situation". I'm sure too that all the other agency's involved cooperated with each other fully to insure the communities were never in danger from something they decided was a "direct threat" coming from a feeling picked on teenage girl who didn't want to go to school the next day.

Officials are confident the threat is over, Carter said, and that students and parents can feel safe about going back to school.

There never was one and that's the point. This is where we are at and just because I don't like doesn't make shit bit of difference. If the time comes if told to do so these uniformed licensed, badged and armed army of the state will turn on us so quickly you won't know what happened and then pat themselves on the back for "doing a good job". 


  1. My youngest daughter and her husband and wanting to move to Craig...they will get to have lots of what you have in your header!


  2. I don't even get it. Who did they think they were protecting? Who was supposedly threatened?

  3. Exactly. But it works for them and everyone goes along with the fear. It won't change. No one questions and they make up shit. It's where we're at.
