The big four-oh

Today is my 40th birthday. We had a little party to celebrate last night, and I think everyone had a good time. Before anyone asks, the answer is I feel great about hitting this milestone. If my 40s are to my 30s as my 30s were to my 20s, I'm in for a great decade.

Of course, the truly momentous thing about this is that it means that Cindy Crawford will be turning 40 tomorrow. I'm in good company.

Welcome aboard. I turned 40 in October, and knowing how much better my 30s were for me personally, professionally and financially than my 20s, I can only hope the trend continues to make my 40s the best decade yet.

And even after that, health permitting, I hope to continue that trend with each successive decade.

As for sharing birthdays, the only birthday I know I share is with Matt Biondi, who turned 40 on the same day I did. Hockey stars Mario Lemieux and Patrick Roy were both born three days before me.

Aw. Happy birthday.

I find birthdays are much more fun now that I've been on the other side of the new baby divide.

I have no advice to offer, although I'm ahead of you on the age curve.

Well, yes I do: enjoy the birthday!

Happy birthday, Kuffster! I remember my 40th birthday. The skies opened up and a huge flood of wisdom and maturity was downloaded directly into my brain.

That happened to you yet? Hmmmmmmm?

Congratulations on your 40th, Chuck! Man, has time flown since the days in room 307. :-)

I'm looking forward to joining you in the over 40 club in June.

Kudos, Charles...I'm looking forward to the big 4-0 myself.
