Dear 43 Things Users,

10 years after introducing 43 Things to the world, we have decided we have met our last goal: completing the incredible experience that has been 43 Things. Please join us in giving one last cheer to all the folks who have shared their goals with the world, as well as all the people who have worked at The Robot Co-op to build this incredible website. We won a Webby Award, published a book, and brought happiness to a lot of people.

Starting today, 43 Things users can export their goals and entries from the site. Starting August 15, we will make the site “read only”. 43 Things users will still be able to view the site and export their content, but we won’t be taking any new content from users. We hope to leave the site up for folks to see and download their content until the end of the year. Ending on New Year’s Eve takes us full circle.

It has been a long ride (one of our original goals was to "build a company that lasts at least 2 years” - we beat that one!) While we wish the site could live on, it has suffered from a number of challenges - changes in how people use the site, the advertising industry, and how search engines view the site. We wish the outcome was different – but we’ve always been realistic about when our goals are met and when they aren't.

As of today, you will be able to download your goals and entries. See more about that on the FAQ page. Thanks for 10 great years of goal-setting and achieving.

- The Robots.

make more meals (read all 26 entries…)
late note

when I wrote this entry, I really meant to start trying new recipies and the like, and not rely so much on the meal in a box.
However, since my hand injury, chopping, dicing, and slicing has been next to impossible and sort of dangerous.

i did however, pull out an old favorite.

Chicken breast, loaded with Campbell’s reduced salt mushroom soup.

it was incredibly tasty after weeks of meals from a box.

I have to say, it isn’t gourmet, but it has potential!

My mom used to make this all the time

I like to do the same thing with chicken noodle too, since I’m not a big fan of mushrooms.

Adar What?

Oh, TJ!

I wish I could bring dinner over for you.

I agree with Hermes13, if an occasional convenience fresh food might not be a good idea.

OR, did anyone who lives nearby say to you, “If there’s anything I can do to help…”? They might be really glad to bring some food that wasn’t out of a box.

its ok

boxed food has gotten lots better. I do chopped frozen veggies, but I find I can’t really make curry without both hands.
I’m doing quite well in the foods department, but no new and exciting recipes.


I want to:
