    Born in 1910, my mother was the first director I ever met. Wearing an apron and teaching tap in the basement of our apartment building, she was a housewife and dance teacher. Even from a young age she was an entertainer who thought performing was not just a hobby or even a profession but a way of living that was as essential as breathing or eating.

    Mom was always “on” from her energetic teaching of her dance students to her late-night work when she would type out songs, dance routines, and funny plays for her dance recital. I would be in my bed and still hear her typewriter as I went to sleep at night. Her typing sounded like rain. Always working, she would go to Broadway shows, steal the routines, and come back and type them out for her students to perform. I knew right from the beginning that if I could make my mom laugh, then I could make her love me.

    When I grew up and moved to Hollywood as an adult, I would later create 14 prime-time TV shows and direct 17 movies. During my five decades in show business, I never forgot my mother’s advice to find the humor in anything. I wanted to entertain the world and not put people to sleep. If my mom had been born at a different time in history she might have become a stage actress or a performer herself. Instead, she trained my two sisters and I to work in the field of entertainment. She remains to this day my inspiration and creative compass. I will never stop carrying on my mother’s message, and I will never stop missing her. In fact, as a tribute to my mother I built The Marjorie Ward Marshall Dance Center at Northwestern University. Whenever I visit the building it helps remind me that to entertain people and make them laugh is what my own career has been all about.

    Phil White has just returned from an 18,000-mile, around-the-world bicycle trip. White had two reasons for making this epic journey. First of all, he wanted to use the trip to raise money for charity, which he did. He raised 70,000 for the British charity, Oxfam. White's second reason for making the trip was to break the world record and become the fastest person to cycle around the world. He is still waiting to find out if he has broken the record or not.

    White set off from Trafalgar Square, in London, on 19th June 2004 and was back 299 days later.

No jeep carrying food, water and medicine. No doctor. Nothing! Just a bike and a very, very long road.  The journey was lonely and desperate at times. He also had to fight his way across deserts, through jungles and over mountains. He cycled through heavy rains and temperatures of up to 45 degrees, all to help people in need. There were other dangers along the road. In Iran, he was chased by armed robbers and was lucky to escape with his life and the little money he had. The worst thing that happened to him was having to cycle into a headwind on a road that crosses the south of Australia. For l,000 kilometres he battled against the wind that was constantly pushing him. This part of the trip was slow, hard work and depressing, but he made it in the end. Now Mr. White is back and intends to write a book about his adventures.
