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.

Montezuma's Well

Went hiking down Montezuma’s Well. It was pretty cool with the small housing located in the rock. They had to be small indians to live in there and very agile to get to some of the places. Pretty cool place. Also we to another spot very close by and see some pretty cool hieroglyphics.

Of course….. I need a camera again!! :( But the trip was way awesome!

The Departed

No tickey, no laundry!

plant a vegetable garden (read all 9 entries…)

Ahhhh…. My garden is beautiful and will get more so as the spring/summer continues. The bok choy did well, but was very bitter so… I won’t do that again, until I read up on it more.

The strawberries are coming in good! I have a small green chili developing as well as a very beautiful eggplant that is almost 5 inches!! I have eaten beats and spinach! I have green and yellow squash, water melon, jalapinos, tomatoes, bell peppers, sunflowers, rosemary, chives and leeks growing as well.

I think this will have to be my summer spot and the winter one I will have to try somewhere else.
