Vacation...all I ever wanted!


Sue and I were planning our next vacation over the weekend.  We did a random survey among friends:  What’s the #1 vacation spot you’d recommend?

The place that kept popping up was Costa Rica. It has some of the world’s most amazing beaches in both the Pacific and Caribbean, active volcanos, rain forests and mountains.  We are definitely looking into a trip there possibly late summer or early fall.

What is your GO TO vacation spot?  Where would you recommend if you were our travel guide?

Here’s some of the suggestions from today’s show--
 
Aruba is beautiful

Tahiti!!! The huts are right in the water! Completely exotic!

New Orleans

Kiawah Island SC or Ireland, the west coast

Cruise Alaska

Maui!!!! You'll love it!!

Chincoteague

You should try Atlantis in the Bahamas. Just got back so much to do. U would love it

Outer Banks NC

I love going to Puerto Rico and going to Banos de Caomos and it means the baths of Caomo which has a hot spring that help to relax you

Assateague island! Tent camping on the beach with the wild horses

Bar Harbor Maine

I truly recommend you vacation in Kuaii. It is the most luxurious island in Hawii islands. It has beautiful scenery and great food and drinks with awesome entertainment and everyone was extremely nice.

Bora Bora. Most beautiful place on earth

Gatlinburg TN!! Breathtaking views, hiking, white water rafting, many attractions and sights. Locals there are pleasant and so refreshing. Rent a cabin and relax in the evenings in your hot tub :-​) I'm going in July and can't wait.

Most definitely Australia and New Zealand

Massanutten Resort in Virginia. Condos built on the side of a mountain in the Shenandoah mountains. Beautiful. Indoor waterpark. Skiing. Snow tubing. Wineries.

Emerald Isle, NC!!! Beautiful lazy beach town! We love it there!

St. John...US Virgin Islands....omg...the water is breathtaking and the atmosphere is just so laid back.

Island of Mykonos,Greece

Santa Teresa Costa Rica!

Vegas baby

Finger Lakes, New York

St Martin, in the Caribbean. Amazing beaches great food. Half French, Dutch and Caribbean style.

Dreams resort, Punta Cana

I love South Carolina especially around Hilton head

Key West! And Milwaukee

F Cancer???


(Photo courtesy of: 
DAVID MAIALETTI / Staff Photographer The Inquirer)

Did you hear about the sisters that were asked to leave the King of Prussia Mall because they were wearing hats that said "F*&% Cancer"?  The full word was spelled out, but the C was replaced with a pink ribbon.

They were wearing the hats to honor their Mom who recently passed away from cancer.  And here's the ironic part:  they were shopping at the mall to buy dresses to wear to their Mom's funeral.

Obviously the mall was insensitive here especially when the timing is taken into account.  But this is where Lissa and I disagreed.

Lissa thinks that if you can buy it at the mall you should be able to wear it at the mall.

We all have our own ways of dealing with personal tragedies, whether its cancer or the loss of a loved one.  But I still think the mall has every right to ask them to remove the hats since it is a public place.

Here's what some of you had to say this morning--

Saying f*** cancer is probably a way for those girls to grieve, however it is not appropriate in a public place where there are children.

This is absurd!!!! My mom has had cancer for 13 years and if you have ever personally dealt with a loved one battling cancer, it is a disgusting & ugly disease. There is no other way to describe it other than f*ck cancer. and if the mall has no posted rules concerning offensive language, they shouldn’t be allowed to make them leave. I know for sure I will NEVER shop at that mall.

I agree with Lissa. I lost both parents to cancer. So yea... F cancer!!!! I'm happy the girls did what they did & that they felt strong enough to do that. I lived in that area & wore ALOT worse to that mall & wasn’t asked to leave. My F-word was full & had the C-word on the back.. This was approx 15 yrs ago

Look around the mall. Do you know how many stores have stuff like that right in the windows. Hot Topics, Spencers,and more.

I have cancer and I don't agree with using the f word I have 2 daughters 17 and 14 and I tell them I am fighting this but I won't let them use that word unfortunately we are dealt things we don't like and don't understand.

People don't get kicked out of malls for having tattoos that have the f word.. But a hat isn't okay? At least this was for a good cause.

I work at a mall and I have seen more offensive things than that hat. Female body parts and young "men" walking around with their pants way below their butt cheeks. I feel anyone offended by this has never experienced cancer first hand. I have had 2 very close and wonderful people die from this ruthless disease. It is an awful way to die. Kudos to those women.

I agree w/ both of u usually I pick a side but this has 1 Hell of a gray area due to timing however, the hat still spells it out clearly

Would much prefer they begin approaching the young men who walk around with their ASSES hanging out of their jeans!!!! Extremely embarrasing.

There are better ways to show your support against cancer. That slogan isn't proving anything.

That is absolutely ridiculous wearing that was perfectly fine You can go to store inside the mall and buy worse than that If they're going to criticize people on the words they can wear on the clothing. Maybe they should make people wear more clothing because I'd rather read that than see parts of people that we’re not supposed to see.

I say F that. Have you seen what they sell in Spencer's? Also I'm offended by Red Sox jerseys but they let those people in!

Interesting question. If the ladies were wearing the curse word item they purchased in a store at that mall, would they have to kick them out?
