Spectacular Dantes View

Image
It was well worth a long drive (a lonely road) to Dantes View. This was our last stop on our first day of journey to Death Valley National Park California. It was already 3:30 pm when we left the main road and it took us about 20 minutes to get there. A 13 mile paved road but the last quarter mile is 15% grade. A steep climb up but so beautiful. Vehicles over 25ft or longer are prohibited on this road. Please watch our short video  Road to Dantes View  to see the road.  There were few cars when we arrived at The Dantes View but those people were out exploring around. It wasn't crowded at all in fact we were the only ones there enjoying the 360 degrees of breathtaking view of Death Valley from 5475 ft high above Sea Level.  We didn't stay long because it was windy and cold.  It would have been nice to explore the area but it was also getting late in a day. There was a Bee Hazard caution sign on the road but we didn't even get the change to see any. Maybe it's because we

Acid Reflux

My husband got admitted to the ER recently due to the pain and discomfort on the upper part of his abdomen. He had been feeling it for about 5 days and started to worry, it might be something life threatening. Blood and urine test came back good. Based on the symptoms and after several hours at the ER, the doctor called it Acid Reflux. He prescribe him Zantac but my husband bought the generic Ranitidine instead and it works just fine. He's feeling a lot better now. He can now eat good and sleep well.

I am now on search for foods and recipes that are good for acid reflux. Coffee and spicy foods were a big part of his diet. But right now he has to avoid them until he feels a way lot better and slowly adding them back to his diet. We have a list of foods to avoid but not a list of what to eat. Any recipes or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.Thank you!


Here is a computer snapshot of my back yard right now. Such a good day to just seat here and blog.

  1. I am supposed to have acid reflux but I am not sure on that. I know anything acidic is not good and one is supposed to eat slowly (hard for me to do). I know my mother took ranitidine and after a while, she felt much better and could drink coffee and eat oranges so it will take time

    1. Yep, acidic and spicy is not good for him, at least not right now, it'll take time. Ranitidine works just fine and the great part is, my husband only pays .78 cent for 2 weeks worth, twice a day medication.

    1. Thank you Karyn. Yep, my husband has no choice right now when it comes to eating. No ice cream, no coffee, no cheese, no chocolate, and no spicy. He is now walking dead :-) but after his medication, he is going to add those thing back, slowly to his diet.
