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.

Do a little bit in the garden every day (read all 38 entries…)
I have been quite sick for the past week or so

So has Mr. HC. Today I actually went out into the yard to kind of survey what has happened while I was down and out. Nothing good, that’s for certain.

I lost a few plants and my neighbors tree has a branch which has split and is all over our pool area where I am trying to grow cannas. Spring weeds are out of control again.

Got my work cut out for me this weekend for sure!

# 31. Favorite house in your town/city/near by

I actually have a number of “Favorite” houses that I see around here, but this one is in the top 5 for sure!

It was built in 1894 and is oner of the oldest homes around here. Phoenix has a relatively “new” history when compared to other parts of the country and Phoenicvians also have a bad habit of tearing thigs down instead of preserving. We are getting better though. Fortunately this beautiful painted lady was saved by the City back in the 1970’s.

# 20. Something left behind

I see stuff like this all the time. I always wonder “why” is there a lone shoe in the street/freeway/wherever? What is the story here?

# 39. Something lost

Lost because I have no idea how you get your shoes back. They are truly lost!!! I see this all over the place, more so in some neighborhoods than others.

As a Mom this pisses me off . . . shoes are expensive!!!

# 33. Favorite vegetable

I had to think really hard about this one because I really like vegetables. I would be hard pressed to think of one that I absolutely won’t eat.

I think though that maybe Mr. Potato wins just slightly over the rest. I do love potatoes!!!

Cactus – which we have plenty of. This one has a hole in it where a bird has most likely nested

# 15 - A Meal to Die For - by Joseph R. Gannascoli

This was a fairly quick read.

OVERVIEW: Mobbed-up Brooklyn chef Benny Lacoco prepares the dinner of a lifetime, knowing that someone stands to get whacked when the last course is served. The rat who set up the reigning capo for 10 to 20 is one of the made men at the table, but Benny realizes suspicion could fall anywhere: “I’ll be cooking all night and my reward could be a piece of lead in the head.” Benny ruminates on how he fell into his life of crime, acting as a food fence to move stolen stock out to select restaurants, “transfusing” inferior olive oil or wine into higher-ticket containers. The mix of haute cuisine and Mafiosi is a natural—obviously Julia Child and Tony Soprano both like to eat, right? And how often do you see a mobster getting disrespect for “revealing his limited knowledge of food and even more limited food choice experience”?

I think Mr HC and I are on the up side of this sickness that we had. He went back to work today (after almost 2 weeks). He is worn out tonight, but feels better than he has in a while. I have been so worried about him.

# 35. Something just plain wrong

This is a set of knives that I have in my kitchen. I actually really like it. It is called “The Ex” and everyone who sees it tells me that “this is just plain wrong”
