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.

At the cheese shop - pass the honey, Honey!

Stopped at the cheese shop, check out their web site:

.. and purchased cheese curds, extra-old cheddar (they call it 2 year old cheddar now), brie (lucky to get this, it is usually sold out) and HONEY, lovely local honey.

Farmers Market

Yesterday and today were the last days for the Farmers Market for this year. We purchased more maple syrup, Mennonite sausages and way too many sweet baked treats. Also, my favourite supplier of local beef was on hand, with stewing beef, ground beef and a wonderful selection of home made preserves.

Local cheese

We have a lovely little cheese factory down the highway, I am enjoying some of their extra old Cheddar! mmmm …

Wild blueberry topping

Mum and I had homemade cheesecake at the Legion this afternoon, with homemade wild blueberry topping, mmmmm … yummy!


Mum made cooked fruit for dessert tonight, including rhubarb that came from our apt building’s garden.

Maple syrup

I am enjoying a can of local maple syrup! I have a spoonful of it on my weetabix every morning.

Carrots, beets, onions

Received today from a local garden: carrots that smell like carrots should, fresh beets and cooking onions.

Local Bison

A couple of weeks ago we found a local supplier of bison meat. It’s about the same price as good quality beef, very low fat and tastes great.

Local Eggs

Last night on the way home, we stopped at a local farm and purchased eggs. Now I have another local egg supplier and will keep the cartons for him. He is also a dairy farmer, and has pigs and chickens at another farm across the highway. ... mmm, hoping to buy some piggy chops from him! :-)

He told me that to purchase new virgin egg cartons, he would have to get 300 and have them shipped from down south. We both kinda rolled our eyes and frowned at that one.
