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.

next month! Yeah, baby!

New car

The 1997 Honda CR-V broke down for the last time…radiator. So…in with the new – a 2013 Honda CR-V. Rides like a dream. Quite fond of the color – twilight blue!

Going home

is always an incredible feeling.

A deep tissue

full body massage yesterday! Incredible! ...but I’m feeling it today… Ouch!

Pretty cool

to see them. Amazing, though – 2-3 hours of filming of one scene.

Right up close

to the actors on a episode shoot of Inspector Lewis in Oxford.
Great fun!!!

Free Iced coffees

from the local bookshop when it’s hot. Definitely puts a smile on my face. :)

Had my back

waxed. Yes, I did. :)
I don’t mind hair anywhere else on my body, but have never liked seeing hair on my back. So, I have to get rid of it. Makes me feel good to see it gone!

So, I’m not quite your typical metro-sexual. LOL

Unconditional love

from friends.
Absolutely priceless.
And I am truly grateful!


booking flights to the UK for July. And this’ll be fun – my folks are going! Neither one has been to that side of the pond. Mom has never been outside the U.S., with the exception of Puerto Rico, and Dad’s last trip abroad was Vietnam. haha And they’re such country bumpkins! It’ll be such fun! Thinking of seeing Pemberley for Mom, Doncaster for Dad (an aviation museum), and York and Sheffield together.

~to the water~ has gotten 20 cheers on this goal.
