Less than a month until my birthday.  I have a lot of goals to accomplish before next year’s birthday, so the clock is officially ticking.  Starting to figure out all my plans for Super Bowl week — I will be up in New York from Wednesday, January 29 through Monday, February 3.  Feel free to send along information for Super Bowl parties and events.  I hope to see many of you out in the cold streets of NY and maybe even at the Super Bowl (you can bet I’ll be there if it is possible).  This week on FORBES: (1) Clemson Vs.
