Seth has spoken to congress and was able to make millions for Alzheimer's research. The third thing that that I am grateful for is Danny Thomas, the founder of st Jude children's hospital.

How Men And Women Record Things In Their Diaries (JOKE) Wife's Diary: Tonight, I thought my husband was acting weird. We had made plans to meet at a nice restaurant for dinner. I was shopping with my friends all day long, so I thought he was upset at the fact that I was a bit late, but he made no comment on it. Conversation wasn't flowing, so I suggested that we go somewhere quiet so we could talk. He agreed, but he didn't say much. I asked him what was wrong; He said, 'Nothing..' I asked him if it was my fault that he was upset. He said he wasn't upset, that it had nothing to do with me, and not to worry about it. On the way home, I told him that I loved him. He smiled slightly, and kept driving. I can't explain his behavior. I don't know why he didn't say, 'I love you, too.' When we got home, I felt as if I had lost him completely, as if he wanted nothing to do with me anymore. He just sat there quietly, and watched TV. He continued to seem distant and absent. Finally, with silence all around us, I deci ...

"I don't think homosexuality is a choice. Society forces you to think it's a choice, but in fact, it's in one's nature. The choice is whether one expresses one's nature truthfully or spends the rest of one's life lying about it." - Marlo Thomas quotes from BrainyQuote.com

Marlo Thomas: ‘You can dream big, but you have to start small’ Mary Johnson, Editor Marlo Thomas, TV actress known for starring on That Girl, talks to Bizwomen about her new book, It Ain't Over…, at the ABC Studios in New York, April 21. ©Ye Ming for Bizwomen. Marlo Thomas means it when she says it ain't over till it's over. It’s the title of her new book, in which she has compiled stories from 60 women who live by that adage. But it's also a philosophy she's lived by since the early days of her career. I sat down with Thomas, a stunning woman with a powerful presence at the age of 76, yesterday in New York — a pit stop on a whirlwind media tour to promote “ It ain’t over till it’s over: Reinventing your life — and realizing your dreams — anytime, at any age.” She told me things were hard for her as she tried to chart a Hollywood career. “As a young actress, I just could not get started, and I was working in community theater, but I couldn’t get a break,” Thomas said.

Marlo Thomas was my first BIG Crush! I remember watching "That Girl" with my mom when I was 4 years old and not understanding my feelings that "the pretty lady on TV" brought up in me! LOL!! Anyway . . . Marlo has just published a book on a topic that is near and dear to my heart: Reinvention! And as the book's title suggests, reinvention can take place at any age. You decide who you want to be at any age. The book profiles women who have reinvented themselves and have gone on to have second (or 3rd+) amazing careers. I totally celebrate this, it is fantastic! But what about us guys? Can't we reinvent ourselves too? (Oh yeah . . . when we do it everybody rolls their eyes and whispers about "mid-life crisis" LOL!! I guess if we did something other than buy a red corvette or a Harley they might they might take us more seriously. :) )

Sage advice from Marlo Thomas, just listen don't always try to fix someone's problem.
"If your sex life is good, its about 35% of your marriage. If your sex life is bad, its about 85% of your marriage." - Marlo Thomas
Sometimes we think somebody's going to rescue us, or somebody's going to teach us how to do it, when in fact we have to understand that the biggest resource we have is inside of ourselves. I know that I can count on me to take care of me. That's a very important thing to know." Small steps can help people make big changes to achieve what they really desire. "That wish isn't going to go anywhere unless you do something about it. Every day, just do one thing. … At the end of six months, you'll be somewhere." Marlo Thomas

I was lucky to have seen Marlo Thomas' "Free to Be...You & Me" TV special upon its debut 40 years ago tonight! The star of "That Girl" & a slew of talented guest stars were on hand to give us songs, cartoons, puppetry & films which celebrated gender equality/tolerance: i.e., how perfectly healthy it is for boys (AND men) to let it all out & just cry when we're feeling sad. With cyber bullying, racism & homophobia still running rampant in our country, I believe an update "Free to Be..." web site, blog, what have you could help today's kids the way 1974's original special was beneficial to me.
As a child, Phil Donahue was the neighbor of Erma Bombeck. He later married Marlo Thomas, who produced "Free To Be You and Me", the album version of which contains the track "Housework", which I would argue would not exist were it not for Bombeck's pioneering writing on the subject. I'm just saying: we are all one.
Many of you watched Danny on some shows, but here are some of the things you don't know about Danny:   Father of Tony Thomas, Marlo Thomas, and Terre Thomas.   He took his stage name from his eldest brother Thomas and his youngest brother Danny.

He claimed he could drink cup after cup of Maxwell House Coffee and still fall asleep mere minutes later.   Child of Lebanese immigrants.   Danny Thomas was a founding minority owner of the NFL team "Miami Dolphins."   Co-starred on NBC Radio's "Drene Time" (1946-1947).   Danny Williams, Thomas's character on Make Room for Daddy (1953), was ranked in TV Guide's list of the "50 Greatest TV Dads of All Time" [20 June 2004 issue].   Founded St. Jude Children's Research Hospital   Guest speaker at the 1973 National Boy Scout Jamboree in Butler, Pennsylvania.   Was offered the lead role in The Jolson Story  ...

when we were young Marlo Thomas sang to us about accepting each other and our differences, but then we got older and started singing a different tune. We stopped CELEBRATING each others life choices and started QUALIFING them. Is acceptance really such a childish concept or did we have it right all along? When did we stop being free to be you and me?
This is really nice :) from Marlo Thomas Throwback Thursday! Here we are, just the five of us at home: Tony, Terre, Mom, and me, all behind Dad.
Reading Marlo Thomas Growing up Laughing and I am loving it...This is from her book: A Woman's Prayer "Dear Lord, I pray for the wisdom to understand my husband, the love to forgive him, and the patience for his moods. Because, Lord, if I pray for strength, I'll just beat him to death." Cracked me up!
I believe she even worked for Phil Donahue/Marlo Thomas. I suppose she tried to keep work & her art separate. She died, broken.

Sherri's advice, as she told Marlo Thomas, on making her second marriage work: “Never hire a really cute assistant! That will get you in trouble!” she joked. On a more serious note, Sherri admitted that she was much too career-oriented in her first marriage. “I lived, ate and breathed my career,” she reflected. She’s learned that you have to make time for your loved ones, especially your husband. “Men have really fragile egos,” she said. “Women tend to handle a lot more.” Sherri stressed the importance of communicating with your partner, letting him or her know they are important and special. “When I get home and am tired, instead of taking my wig or lashes off, I keep everything on so that my husband doesn’t feel like he gets the leftovers,” she said. “I also got rid of all my flannel,” she laughed. “I’m freezing in the winter time now!”
Very excited about sitting down with Marlo Thomas to answer your tech questions. Got any to add?
Some times I lay awake at night at wonder: who really was the hotter independent woman? Marlo Thomas or Mary Tyler Moore

Ok, makers of "Cougartown." We get it. Courtney Cox loves merlot just as much as Marlo Thomas loves plastic surgery. You can only use that as a selling point for so long before even Johnson County housewives get bored.
