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 Dead Man Wanted Out

Interesting. They ain't shitting this guy. The dead man wanted out. His friends helped. The cops know that too - bet on it. Nothing will happen nor should it probably.

Why do we have to do it like this.

The alleged shooter, Joseph Eric McClane of Clinton, reportedly met deputies outside and told them he had “accidentally shot” Bunch. According to several sources, the shooting victim had been in a wheelchair all of his life and suffered from spina bifida.

  1. Geez! On a bright note...your header is a good one!


  2. It was something that stuck out this morning and a topic that has been addresses here on more than one occasion.

    She knew how to use a knife.

  3. Absurd isn't it? The government kills more accidentally than all the "assisted departures" combined. Yet, the government is instantly sanctimonious about it all.

  4. Yes and the common denominator is "religion".

  5. I will never understand why assisted suicide is not legal. If someone wants to end their life, why should they not have that right? Why should they be forced to continue suffering? It's inhumane.

    1. As One Fly succinctly pointed out earlier; the Puritanical roots of this nation are still alive and influencing the nation's politics. Until religion is ignored, as a political influence, we'll never see logic in law.

    2. It need to be said here Bob that several weeks ago now there is bill in the Colorado Legislature that enables people some choices in this matter based on Oregon's I believe. Repuglicans are in charge there so expect little.

      Was going to post that but am stagnant and been fighting a bug.

      Life is good.

      Bad Tux has a good post up today about anti-vaxxers.

      I wish we were headed to DC. Ya mon.

    3. Of course that bill died yesterday 3/6. So many showed sick people showed up wanting this choice as a human being but there are two many bat shit crazy fucks here like so many other places,


  6. Nothing for the most part is the way it is with most issues because here intelligent conversations on important things such as end of life are NOT allowed to happen.

    There are going to be many of us - boomers - who will have no one to look after them properly. Just the way it's gonna be. Too many of us.

    Here we jail people who help those who want assistance in ending their lives with dignity.

    Yes it is inhumane PC.
