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.

24. Tried Quinoa

25. Cleveland. (I had a multitude of new experiences while there, but I’m counting it as a whole.)


20. Watched ‘Roots’; it was a bit slow to start but I enjoyed it!

21. Tried a new restaurant: Granny’s Kitchen. The food was delicious, the restaurant was a hidden gem and they bake all of their own bread.

22. Tried a new recipe for low fat chocolate oatmeal cookies which was delicious.

23. Watched ‘Kingdom of the Crystal Skull’, the last Indiana Jones movie. I thought it was weird and way too fake. The originals were far better.


17. Saw ‘Boomtown’ which was pretty good!

18. Tried crackle nail polish. Not my style at all, but that’s why I tried it. It came out pretty nice too.

19. Tried a new, local candy shop. Their espresso truffles are delicious.


14. New foods – beignets and a muffelata in New Orleans. The muffelata may be the best sandwich I’ve ever eaten in my entire life. Z agreed. Trust me, a food coma is real and amazing. It was so good that I would eat it again despite that I had a violent reaction to it.

15. New places. I’ve never been to Louisiana, Texas, Alabama, Arkansas or Mississippi. It was interesting and beautiful and I’m glad I went.

16. Saw ‘How Green Was My Valley’


For lunch today, I’m trying something new that I’ve been dying to try; an apple-bacon-cheddar sandwich!


6. Watched a new (to me) movie – Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade

7. Tried a new food – potato pierogi (nowhere near as good as cheese.)

8. Created a new recipe – strawberry lemon bread

9. Doing something different – going out for a fish fry. (I’ve been to the restaurant before, years ago, but have never had fish fry there)

10. Tried Tai Chi

11. Tried Zumba

12. Read several new books (I read a lot so I’m not going to put them in individually, or that would take up the whole list)

5. turkey tacos

I have no idea why this goal marked itself as ‘complete’ when I clicked ‘add entry’...

Anyways, tonight I tried a new food product: ground turkey! We make tacos with fresh veggies, ground turkey and homemade taco seasoning and it was delicious. I would definitely do it again!

3. Chocolate Biscotti and 4. Nutella Puffs

New items three and four are two new recipes that I tried over the weekend. The first was for homemade chocolate biscotti (I love biscotti) and the second was nutella puffs for World Nutella Day. Both came out well. I’ll be reworking the biscotti recipe but I was very pleased with the Nutella Puffs!

2. Delaware

This weekend I visited Delaware for the first time! While it was only for a few hours, I was able to see my sister graduate and see my dad forthe first time in a year. I also get to cross another state off my 50 states list!

1. Chocolate Affair

Tonight my family, Z, and I went to an event called the “Chocolate Affair”. It was a charity event held by a local restaurant (Salvatore’s Italian Gardens) and a local radio station (96.1 WJYE) where the proceeds went to support Autism research and programs.

For $20 per ticket you could visit tables and do dessert, and wine, tastings. (They had other vendors like spas and massage parlors as well but everyone wanted to try the food!) Everything was centered around chocolate. There were ice creams, cupcakes, gelato, panna cotta, doughnuts…on and on. We brought tons home because there were too many and the place was beyond packed; but everything we tried was delicious. (Except the panna cotta which Z tried and would not try again.)

Overall it was a really nice experience. The food was good, the bands were decent (one was an Autistic group who did well) and the number and types of vendors would have made it a great place to try things for a wedding. The only drawback was the number of people there. It was like a cattle call!

We definitely got our money’s worth and we would do it again. Plus, our fridge is full of mini desserts for breakfast. Win!
