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.

just random rambling around

JJ our orange tabby was "complaining" last night

at the top of his kitty cat lungs. He was in “his room” which is a place in the house he likes to hang out. His food and water is in that room, away from the dogs (so they won’t take his food away from him) and he likes to sit on the back of this wing back chair in that room (ironically leopard print) and look out the window. It’s his spot.

So last night he was complaining and when I came back into our room, Mr. HC asked what was wrong and I told him that JJ wanted his T.V turned on. Yes, JJ has a T.V. that room that is exclusively either Animal Planet or Cartoon Network. When I said he wanted his T.V. on, Mr. HC burst out laughing . . . We spoil our animals . . . ya think?

My Mother passed away 05/01/2012

Today, 05/10/2012 would have been my 33rd wedding anniversary to my children’s Father had we remained married.

Tuesday, May 15, 2012 would have been my parents 58th wedding anniversary.

I have some very mixed feelings about the month of May

The Dogs approve of the new Truck

If they didn’t, you know we would have to return it!

Has anyone heard from Jestess????

I have been thinking of her and miss her entries. I wish she would come back.

If you make a sandwich to take to work for your lunch . . .

because you want to save money and you leave it on the counter like an idiot while you go to your room to get dressed and you come back to the kitchen and one or both of the Great Danes have removed it from the counter and well, you now have to make another one . . . are you still saving money?

I got a sock monkey for Christmas from Luna Girl

I have never had a sock monkey in my entire life, but I have always thought they were so cute.

Now I have my very own. I am thinking about adopting one of those goals like Take 43 pictures of sock monkey adventures or something to that effect.

Dedicated to all of us who have that occasional

(or maybe not so occasional) senior moment.


My Purple Boots

make me feel invincible!!! (although I realize I am not, at least not completely anyway)


Today Rob and I went to Steakenburger/Long Wongs at 19th & Dunlap expressly to participate in the “Diego Dave’s Habanero Wingz Challenge” Eat 10 Habanero Wingz in 10 minutes and get your picture on the Hall of Flame and win a t-shirt. It was a damn bad idea. I bailed at 5 wingz. Rob only made it to 2. We are both pretty miserable. Those wingz are a mother . . . . Mr HC wouldn’t even go with us. Of the 3 of us, Mr HC is definately the one with the brains!
