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.

Dry as the desert

I’ve figured that my scalp itching and my face breaking out and my body breaking out all have the same reason:My skin is dry dry dry.

Which is odd as it is oily, too, but obviously it’s lacking moisture.

Intense moisturizers and putting the conditioner on the scalp, too, have helped for now but I need to find out why.

I’m not tolerating food well so I started a test to find out if the things I suspect are really bothering me.

I start with lactose:
  • Icecream: Mild discomfort. No good news for me, I love ice cream. :-(
  • to be continued this week to see if my suspicion is founded.

And then on to the doctor.

Now I'm hungry!

Thank you so much for the ideas, I’ll have to try that!

I’m unsure about the lactose. If I see any difference, I’ll have it tested. My husband did that and they discovered he can’t really stomach fructose.

Something is giving me cramps and indigestion.

So far, lactose, gluten and fructose are on my list to find out about!

But coffee granita sounds heavenly! I have to try it!

Thank you so very much!

Spatz has gotten 3 cheers on this entry.


I want to:
