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.

Acoustic Guitar

I wish every Friday night my husband would play his acoustic guitar while I read a book and listen.

I joined a 52books club where we read a book a week. I have been keeping up rather well. We share our book list online at a yahoo group.



Finish my stained glass wall
stained glass wall

We have an addition to the house that has different siding on it and it looks terrible. It is in the back yard between the breeze way of the house and the garage. The area is fenced and the dogs have access to this area at all times. Steve and I were talking about adding a decorated wall. We have two decorative posts from an old fireplace that was torn out and we purchased a mantel for this. We will attach this to the house and then do a treatment using paintings and colored glass to decorate the top. On the mantel we will put bird house that my husband has gotten over the years. This is mostly a private area so won’t be seen by many neighbors.
