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.

Grilled cheese sandwiches!!!

I’ve been trying harder to cook at home – grilled cheese sandwiches have been my salvation! We get dark German wheat bread and sharp cheddar cheese to make them taste more grown-up. Sometimes we even put spicy mustard on them. And I cut up apples and heat tomato soup. The whole process takes about ten minutes and Alex likes to eat them too! When he gets older I will use a cookie cutter to turn them into shapes for him! The whole meal including “upscale” cheese, bread, soup & fruit costs about $7 for the three of us. We used to spend twice that on take-out and another two dollars on baby food! Hope I can figure out something else to make before we get sick of it!

Grilled Muenster on wheat with Adobo???

Oh that is a wicked grilled cheese sandwich!!! What a great idea!

Yes, fall is my favorite season! We live near a farm that sells unbelievable apple cider and fresh fruit, pumpkin pies, pumpkin breads and pumpkin butter! I think I can HEAR my butt growing! I need to take those long fall walks if I can get Alex on board for them!

Thanks for the idea to spice up our favorite meal!
