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.

working around the house

since i have started taking cialis we are having the best sex in our 44 yrs of marriage. she actually allows me to do it twice within an 11 hour period. i never knew she enjoyed sex so much but i am sure glad she does. i can t complain now, when she asks me to help her with household chores. i just can t complain. thank you modern science.. take care.joe


my latest form of verbal abuse is stating that ..the only reason we are still together is because we would be too poor if we divorced.. i at times believe this is true and also the fact that i would have no sex life without her. i have no confidence in my ability to talk another woman into going to bed with me and i would never visit prostitutes although in college i did and i got a std on two different occasions in which i had to take shots to clear up. masturbation is nearly impossible when one is 71. this is a sad post and i would appreciate constructive comments. we will continue living this life for as long as we live. i hope i die first.


i hate the fact that i can t stop yelling at my wife and verbally abusing her during our arguments. i have tried everything for 44 years and nothing works. now, she just yells at me louder than i yell at her. it s impossible for a verbal abuser like me to stop yelling at her. like a physical abuser, i always feel guilty afterward but then repeat the behavior. i am a victim of my emotions. i have so many mood swings that i can barely keep track of them. help. take care..joe


last night at 5;30 pm , my wife reached into the cabinet and handed me the cialis bottle. she said ..we won t be able to do it for awhile so i thought you would want to take this.. we are headed for the in laws and never do it when on the road. we rarely talk about sex and she never tells me she likes our episode but since i have been taking the pill, i believe she actually likes the act. wow. in our 45 years of marriage, our couplings have been better than ever. thank you modern science.


my feelings, emotions control me. i dread which form they are going to take as the hours pass by.

how ?

if she finally throws me out of this marriage after 44 yrs. of my anger , how will i ever find someone to have sex with ? since i take cialis , i am in love with , addicted to making love. i am having the longest, most energetic thrusts, in, out, up, down, wiggle, ahhh. wow ! i don t want to find people on line. who else would put up with my anger, my cialis creation, my awful skin ?could i find someone ? i wouldn t have much money cause id have to give most of it to my ex, i suspect. how ?


after making love with her for 44 yrs, yesterday was the first time she said she was disappointed cause she doesn t have orgasims ..sic.. she said she has only had a few in her life. i now take cialis and am having the best sex ever. i thought she was enjoying our couplings as much as me but i guess not. i said ..think of using the tredmill while were doing it if you don t want to have an orgasim. she won t try.


i should write here all day each and every day. my wife is almost mean as me. she never apologizes, never gives in during an argument, always has the last word. she says she hates to argue yet she argues, fights, with me,,verbally. people who say they don t wish to argue don t argue. my son in law rarely argues with my daughter and that s not good. they live with too many thoughts unsaid.
some day i will print all of my entries and have a book to sell to my shoulders ache when i type, arithitis ..sic.. take care joe..

sister in law

my wife and her sister are sitting in the front room talking at 11.33 pm. i am in my man s den writing and surfing. i wish i had someone to sit and listen to me talk all night as she does. if i try to go to sleep i may awaken at 4 am and not be able to sleep again. i am pleased and grateful that i have this computer to fill my time with, my laptop which can t be connected to the net here, my kindle which the reading from puts me to sleep.


i have stayed busy all day or so it seems and yet i still have too much time to wait to eat supper and she is still working on the yard. what do i have to do to obtain satisfaction .
