- Licorice smile
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.

is important to me, so I’ll continue getting allergy shots regularly as long as they help me to manage symptoms (I just won’t be documenting the process here wry grin).
KOKO (keeping on keeping on) elsewhere….
Although I’m marking this complete, it will be an ongoing process, a life-long goal (whether I document it online or not). smile
to myself to take care of those last few remaining details….
I didn’t join the group at meditation tonight, in order to be able to have supper with my friend LMc—hard to believe we’ve known each other since 1986!
While I’m sorry that I couldn’t join the sangha at the sit, I’m very pleased that my friend & I are still close after all these years (& despite so many others falling away). smile
A jointly prepared meal from RJ&W’s kitchen….
Biked 12.78 miles (according to www.gmap-pedometer.com), with W, in a bit more an hour, on a pleasant summer evening. smile
Biked 7.13 miles (according to www.gmap-pedometer.com), in about 40 minutes, on a pleasant, albeit somewhat humid, summer evening (& better yet, I got home before the rain hit!). smile
by Larry McMurtry was chosen as the October book for one of my book club reading groups.
Biked 7.13 miles (according to www.gmap-pedometer.com), in about 40 minutes, on a dim & damp summer evening: although it sprinkled at first, & later rained fairly heavily, I didn’t get soaked through, since the river path I was riding passes mostly through woodland. smile
