Things like Ray Rice, what he did, make me so angry.  But the comment from the man who feels that men are being always blamed - especially in the case of black men, it's true. But, really, c'mon, if you are real men, any man, prove it!  Be better than making the decision to hit anyone physically weaker than you in order to prove your point!  That is NOT ok.  No matter who you are or imagine yourself to be!

I take at least one vacation per year.  I plan ahead every year and save so that the vacation is not a strain on the family budget.  I always tend to find a condo to rent near a large body of water.   I live in Missouri, we have no beach, so a vacation at the beach every year is always on our list.  I do go to Branson or the Ozarks every year, but I do not consider that a real vacation because it is only about 3 days off and back to the office.  But no matter what the circumstances as long as I am physically able to board a plan or drive my vehicle, I am taking a vacation somewhere.

Your statement that you live and teach differently is honest and interesting.  Wether or not Mrs. Rice invited anyone into her personal problems does not change the fact that her husband knocker her out cold.  If violence is acceptable in domestic issues, where do you draw the line?

In our 7 1/2 yr marriage, my husband and I have only taken one family vacation. He has 3 sons from a previous marriage, and I've always wanted to take them on a vacation, but we just never had the money. Finally in 2012 we were able to take the boys to the beach for 5 days. It was soooooo much fun! Staycations are OK, but gettting away is the best! :)

Dr. Phil,  I am getting more and more irritated and appalled of the over abundance of the service men that are on my FB page in the last month.

They are getting better with their English.  But when they have been caught they now get vulgar. 

I am an USAF brat and I know how important it is for a service person to have letters from home etc.  That is i am trying to achieve.

their profile page usually states under "born" says they have left the army.  Tons of army pictures. Some of the names are Matthew Williams, Patrick  Smith, Robert Tyler.  I know you track your guests catfishes down but is there someway I can let the person know their identity

Travel broadens the mind they say, and as I,ve always had itchy feet, I hope I,ve learnt lots along the way. As a factory worker/toilet cleaner/and a middle aged nursing student with two clever daughters to put through college, I,m here to testify that it CAN be done. I,ve saved up for years to go on vacation (no car, no hairdressers, no nails).have been to Australia, Canada, the U.S., France, Italy, Spain, Turkey, Denmark....and I haven,t finished yet.  I,ve just retired, but will only stop moving when I,ve no other option.  It,s a big world ladies....go and take a peek.

Well I guess I must confess here that the only thing I take is Staycation's. They usually involve my traveling from the bedroom to the bathroom and then on to the livingroom. When I am feeling really wild I sometimes give up my broom for the vaccume cause I love the feel of the wind in my hair. 

Come on...30 years of marriage, 4 girls and a self employed husband never quite lent itself to vacations of any kind, unless you wanna count that one time we drove 3 hours to go to Burger King for a hamburger?

After years of debating - where should we go??? I finally convinced hubby Mexico might be a good choice. Seems that every place considered had some downfall - cruises were so expensive and seemed plagued with either sickness or mechanical failure. Mexico was up and down due to all the bad publicity about drug cartel - but then we considered how many killings were in the news in our area and we knew that was a lame excuse as we still went to those cities! I have been in Puerto Penasco now for over two weeks and we absolutely love it here. It took some time to drive down, we actually raced a serious weather front with it biting at our heels nearly to the Mexican border! Little wonder so many here were wearing hoodies and coats and this is the sub triopics! But the weather has warmed up never dipping below 70 in the days and maintaining a pleasant 50 at night. The food here has been out of this world - fish taco's to die for!!!! Rocky Point, which is what many call this town, is a well known shrimp/fishing community. Yesterday my husband purchased HUGE shrimp for $9 per pound and a beautiful slab of grouper for $5 a pound. That shrimp was larger than most lobster tails sold at Red Lobster. I am watching Direct TV - just like at home, buying my gas  cheaper, grocieries cheaper - there is now a Sam's club!!! and the people here are so nice... and to think I was afraid to make this trip. and before I forget best darn drinks I've ever had in my life and having worked and lived in Hawaii, that's saying a lot.
