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.

vinegar roast

pot roast,.5 c vinegar, .25 c soy sauce, garlic, salt and pepper. Brown meat, add the rest and cook for 1.5 to 2 hrs. mmmmm – husband AND oldest liked it too. Need to keep an eye on the liquid level and add water as needed.

Glazed Pork chops

mmmmm, pretty good – probably needed a bit longer to thicken the gaze, but it was pretty good. I’ll make it again. And I tried a new brownie recipie, but it wasn’t as good as my regular so I’ll not be doing that one again.

New cookbook

has led to lots of new trials. Sugar cookies and Chicken Picata being the two most memorable.

bleu cheese crusted steak

Wow – that steak was expensive but mmmmmmmmm-good. I would not classify myself as a steak lover. I never order it at a restaurant and only eat it when there are no other choices. But wow this was really good. Maybe I’ve just never bought expensive enough cut? My husband was suitably impressed and pleased with the effort.

Chicken Cattiatore

I’ve actually made this before, but not in a very long time and this is a diff recipie. Was good, not excellent, but good. How can you go wrong with tomatoes and chicken?

Pecan Bourbon Chicken

very good, husband liked it too. Was too sweet though – by the end it was too much. Next time less sugar. Will definetly repeat.

One new per month

I get it such a rut in so many area’s of my life. This is one. Keep cooking the same stuff. Uhg. I like cooking and so you wouldn’t think this would be so hard but I go in spurts trying new things then nothing.

I commit to trying one new recipie per month. It’s not much – just have to remember to do it!
