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.

Learn to cook (read all 16 entries…)
More cookbooks

My cousin called out to see my new home today. She and her husband had been at a wedding near where i live the night before so they were naturally feeling their best when they arrived. Considering how hung-over they were they were in great form and it was especially nice to show them around as Catherine is an estate agent and had been really helpful when I was buying the place.
Anyhow, she gave me a really cool casserole dish as a house-warming present along with an impressive looking cookbook that specialises in curries. Nice.
However, as I slid it into my collection of new cookbooks it rather pointed up the fact that so far, three months in, I have only made one meal from all those funds of culinary knowledge, a shameful statistic.
I need to get my arse in gear and get going with this learning to cook idea. Next week I will use this book and make one curry, something that I have never done before. Even though I like curries.


I am

shamefully ignorant in the curry department, myself – though I also like curry dishes.

And don’t feel too bad about not cooking much – I don’t have time to much lately, either.

Have fun cooking this week!
