San Antonio across the street selling Pollo Asado now.. LOVE IT.  They cook it up in those big smokers, big as a Volkswagen it seems like!

I think Mexican food, maybe the best in the world!  Say what you will,  the Mexicans don’t fool around when it comes to cookin.

A 1/2 chicken dinner is $7.50.

I don’t know what to say about the world.  These people around here are half fuckin’ dead.  They say poor Bambi is blind now.   People get in all sorts of fights.  Like crabs, in a barrel clawing each other.

Devastating problems are typical around here, and people are expected to just keep on going, often with no mercy whatsoever.  It’s that money,  that fuckin’ MONEY all of the time.

People ALL have something to give.   There is a quote from the Upanishads, I think. “Each one is needed by all”.. something like this.

I was in a wrestling match putting my spare on my car.. the lug nuts were on there so tight that snapped off a 3/8 breaker bar in the socket.  I had given up.

THEN a couple guys came over and gave me a hand.  One big old dude, stomped on my 4 way and boy.. he got every one of them loose!  I had tried this myself, and I weigh 265lbs.  It wouldn’t budge.

THEN.. after I got the lug studs out the fuckin’ wheel wouldn’t come off.  I think it was at the last place I got the tire put on,  the man went overboard with the air wrench.  I couldn’t get it off.  Chris, the smaller of the above mentioned pair, came back over, and whanged it a couple times hard, and by gosh that thing came off!

Man, that big dude stomping that 4-way and loosening the wheel stud- he was my hero.  Without that LITTLE bit he added to the situation- I would have been screwed.

Now to get a tire when I can afford it at the Pick N Pull.. and find someone that will mount it cheap.

SOMETIMES.. a big fuckin’ hammer is far better than a Android.

PDF Escape

PDFEscape  What a useful site.  This allows you to take most any PDF and fill in the blanks on it, add text, even sign it with a freehand tool.

There are a number of ways to get the form up there.  Upload it from your hard drive, type in a URL, etc.   This will work on PDF’s that were not designed to be fillable.

This comes in really handy in our world of FORMS FORMS FORMS.  You’re always being handed some paper.. papers papers PAPERS!  Then- you lose them.  Where did I put the effing form?  It is so damn tedious I really hate it.

Well, this site is very helpful.

Uncle Steve’s Pinto Beans.  This the best pinto Bean recipe I know of.  Most of them are very similar, but this one is better.  It uses bacon, beef bullion,  onion, and garlic.  (Not really that uncommon).  Also, it uses 5 packs Taco Bell sauce at the end.

That being said, it’s the best one I have tried.  The beef bullion IS a little bit better than Chicken bullion.  I put a jalapeno in it, and garnished it with that hot, light green, cucumber salsa from the San Antonio taqueria.  I just add that green sauce as I eat,  as I desire it.

I’ve nearly finished the slow cooker full in only 3 days with great flour tortillas from San Antonio.  Usually I’ll get bored with the pot of beans.

It’s like popcorn as I watch, and live, the horror movie of the United States.

Here is a rating guide for surgeons I just found.  http://www.checkbook.org/surgeonratings/  I often use RIP OFF REPORTS.. to check on things.  I also post my unfortunate experiences, and encourage others to post their opinions.

The Surgeonratings site has lots of useful links, and the differences between surgeons alone, well they are eye opening.

I like to post the favorable things that happen also.  BUT, I am poor and there is far more that is unfavorable.

Mexico?  I got ripped off FAR more in the USA than in any other country I have been too.

At least places like Greece have some claim to a culture, to a soul.  The USA is  the $20 whore of the world.

Everybody is saying “Wake up America!”- for ALL the WRONG reasons.  Thanks to republican, and others,  deregulation and degradation of human rights.   Thanks for NOTHIN’.

It is complicated as a Gordian Knot.  Every time I go to the doctor, I think.. “oh no, oh NO.. what am I doing?  How much is this gonna cost me?”

No one seems to know what they are doing, as far as the administration.  The surgeons who lanced my cyst never saw me again.  I just went to the ER to have it check over.  I got bumped around all over the place.

The decision for surgery on my shoulder was debatable.  I kept working until my arm was useless.. I couldn’t move it at all.  At the SAME time my Sister’s pancreatic surgery went south on her.  I had a long surgery.. it lasted 4 hours.

Why didn’t I have it before?  Because of my job, a over the road truck driver.  I had to literally quit my job to go get help.  I also had a huge hernia, a ventral hernia felt big as a baseball.  That surgery went quite well.. then the shoulder surgery came later.

It’s also complicated by the claims of doctors.  “Chelated Minerals”.. “Laetrille treaments.”,  and a confusing array of treatments and theories.  Some people say chiropractors are quacks, while others swear by them.

The woman that ran the anti smoking clinic,  Huber, ran me out of there saying I couldn’t have my Android at the meetings.  I walked right out of there.

It’s a ruthless world.. where people are dealing one another like a pack of cards,  like they are playing spades.

Oh well.. better than it was before.  BUT it is scary.  I shouldn’t get blasphemous on here…but it is complicated.  BUT… at least there is something.

Maybe this is the way, it is supposed to be.   The VA is extremely slow in many respects.  For instance,  they want documents from me.  I could make them into a PDF and simply email them.  But NO!  Many of the VA departments do not even have a FAX machine.  BUT.. IT is a HELLUVA lot better than health care in the 1930’s.  Before 1929 Medicine was downright medieval.

One article claimed 1 out of 3 Americans would expatriate, if the conditions were right.  You can walk into a pharmacy in many countries, and get things that would get you thrown in jail in the ‘States.

My teeth are still going strong, after American Dentists (who charged me $200 before I even got into a Dental chair), said I needed them all pulled.

My sister is ailing from a botched gall bladder surgery, a stent put in her Sphincter of Oddi, that nearly destroyed her pancreas.

At least in a “3rd World” country you could get pain meds without going through a huge hassle of approveal.

The USA is like the “3rd World” thanks to the morons that are running the government,  most of them millionaires by the way, and I AM NOT TALKING ABOUT OBAMA.

WHY would I, one of the family of beasts that has been called on so many times, fight to support this government?   WHY?
