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.

try a new recipe once a month (read all 10 entries…)
July - Apple Pie

Finally! We had a family lunch on Sunday and I made an apple pie from a recipe that I have never used before. It was really good, although there was a little too much juice in it. You had to mix 125g of brown sugar with 1tspn of cinnamon, then put the 750g sliced uncooked apples into it, mix it all through with your hands then put it in the pie case and top with a lid.
I prepared it beforehand and let it sit in the bowl until I was ready and there was a lot of juice that came out of the apples. It was a beautiful tasting syrup so I poured it over the apples when I filled the pie.
Not such a good move. The syrup ran everywhere when I cut the cooked pie and it made the pastry a bit soggy on the bottom. Definitely best to do it all at the last minute.
Will try it again sometime.
But, all that not withstanding, it was a beautiful pie.



I want to:
