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.

No matter where I go in the future I'll remember 43 things.

Collectorofcats For Thursday, August 21, 2014

:-) My returning to work. My day off Wednesday turned out to be therapeutic.
:-) Picked up my granddaughter from school and her telling me how her day went.
:-) Picked up the rent from our tenants. Both what was owed from last month and all this month’s paid. Now it is time to pay my own bills.
:-) Too hot to cook or eat. I nuked chimichangas for G. I ate a slice of leftover pizza straight out of the fridge. Never realized cold pizza could taste so good.
:-) Ice cream for dessert. Topped with Hershey’s syrup and a drop of Carolan’s Irish cream. In a taste test, I could tell no difference between Carolan’s and Bailey’s.

Collectorofcats I travelled the world and the seven seas

What do you do to unwind from the day? Sometimes 43 things but soon Popclogs. sometimes a little Irish cream. Sometimes I’m wound a bit tight.
What is your typical bedtime? 9:30 to 10:30,
Do you remember your dreams? Vaguely, I use to dream about when I was in high school. At least that was the backdrop. At my age LOL
Do you get up often in the middle of the night or do you sleep straight through it? I wake a few times but I usually don’t need to get up to pee or anything.6 hours ago

Collectorofcats Yes

And it doesn’t generally turn out well. Our old dog Alexis brought us a baby rabbit when we lived on the farm and upon discovering it was alive, My daughter who was just 7 insisted we try to take care of it. It was a few weeks old and maybe if we had better training, we could have saved it. It lived for 4 days under our care. I have managed to bottle feed piglets, kittens and puppies before and they survived but the care of wild animals is best left to mother nature unless you know what you are doing.

Have you ever been homeless and actually lived out of your car or stayed someplace different each night because your had no residence? If so, for how long? 16 hours ago

Pancakes or waffles? Waffles every time.
How do you like ‘em fixed up? The last time I fixed them I added about 3/4 cup of applesauce because I didn’t have enough milk. I They turned out delicious. I sprinkled cinnamon along with the syrup. I generally always have sausage with waffles or pancakes and dip it in syrup. I’ve eaten them just about every way imaginable. fresh blueberries or strawberries, blackberry jam, cream cheese, real whipped cream.
Coffee or tea? I drink coffee in the morning. I may drink iced tea in the afternoon or evening. How do you like it? Sweetened.
I actually bought a can of Arizona brand sweet tea (Southern style) today on my way home. It truly amazes me how popular sweet iced tea has become in the last couple years. We use to order iced tea at a restaurant and while G always drinks unsweetened iced tea, It use to be that in restaurants around here, if you wanted sweet tea, they would bring you a sugar bowl or sugar packets. Nowadays, G has to make sure the server knows he wants unsweetened tea or they’ll bring sweet tea. When I go to McDonalds, I fill my cup half unsweetened/half sweet otherwise, it’s too sweet to drink.

Run or walk? walk
How often do you go for one? I’m on my feet 8 hours a day although I’m not confined to any work station. When possible, I try to take a brisk walk from the parking lot into work.16 hours ago

  • I decided to not to go into work and called in and took a personal day.
  • R remembered to take and send me pictures of P’s first day of school. P was so excited.
  • G and I went shopping and got a quick lunch. G just needed to get out of the house for a bit.
  • I took R to pick up P from school. Everything was so confusing. I’d been told school was dismissed at 2:55 so we came early.
  • I brought P home with me and was going to take her to the pool because it was so hot but they have already started draining it. We went to the park for a little bit and I read to her. We managed to stay cool and found some cucumbers ready in the garden.
    43 Things continues to be up and running. Hooray for one more day!1 day ago

Collectorofcats Another word game

This time I will start out with a word and the next person adds a word that goes with it. Example I type the word river the next person types in a word that can be attached to it like dance so together we have river_dance. The next person sees the word dance and types in a word that can follow it like craze so together we have dance_craze. And so on and so on.
I’ll start:

Collectorofcats Duh? Like Rick Perry?

Maybe he isn’t a world leader but I think I could have handled the drunken DUI head of whatever better then him. I’m not saying she hid behind the color of the law to keep her job when she should have resigned but he used his office to try to bully her into resigning and even vetoed funds to her department to make her quit. I know a lot of people who make mistakes and can be mean drunks but who are gracious and know their shit when sober.

Have you ever had a supernatural experience?. 1 day ago

Collectorofcats Not exactly

Back in the day, my husband and I tried our hand at refinishing a cabinet. the result wasn’t what we hoped for so we took it to someone who refinished furniture professionally. He redid it and we ended up giving it to my mom for Christmas. she had seen it before we ever messed with it and when she saw it afterwards, she told us we did such a great job. I never got around to telling her until years later who actually refinished it. 1 day ago

But I’m such an introvert. It is hard for me to just show up someplace even prearranged and meet anyone in person let alone in cyberspace. I’m not that good at connecting with people.

on her first day of Kindergarten.
