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.

Today, as my sister and I were driving down a fairly busy road, we noticed the SUV in front of us slowing and sort of gliding into the oncoming traffic lane. At first, we couldn’t imagine what was wrong with him, but made sure to keep our distance.

Then my sister saw what he saw. It was an eagle, standing there, right on the side of the road, over a dead carcass. I too slowed my car and asked my sister to roll down the window.

The quality is a little poor, but here is what I got.

March came in like a lion in my town. So we made the most of it and went outside to play.

The sad thing is:

I think he can do it.

I've been taking millions of pictures.

I just have to start loading some in here, I guess.


Making something of the summer.

This is what happens when my mom has control of the camera...

It is 7:30 am, northern Wisconsin, Easter morning, 40-or-so degrees F, and my sister and I, fully grown, search for our Easter baskets. Totally dorky.


Egg dyeing celebrations. It takes 1 hour to prepare the eggs, the dyes, the paints, the stickers, the kids, etc… and it’s all over so quickly.

Pretty skies

After a storm.
