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.

HippieChick2I was studying JJ's ears . . .

The small flap on a cat’s outer ear is called the pinna. Cats have an amazing ability to hear even the faintest sounds. Their superior hearing would not be possible without the ear flap.
The ear flap is located toward the base of the cat’s outer ear. It will be upright on most cats, with the exception of breeds like the Scottish Fold which have folded ears. It is usually covered in short, fine fur like the rest of the cat’s ear.
The ear flap is an important part of a cat’s superior hearing system. According to Washington State University, the ear flap helps funnel sound into the cat’s ear canal to help them hear better.
Ear Canal
Cats have a longer ear canal than humans, with nearly a 90 degree turn, making it more challenging for sounds to reach the ear drum.
Rotating Ear
Cats also have the ability to swivel the ear flap and the entire outer ear toward the source of a noise.
Cats can hear sounds up to five times farther away than humans, according to And despite the dog’s reputation for being able to hear high-pitched frequencies, cats can actually hear even higher frequencies 7 months ago

<'))){Harvesting the Pancakes

April and I are
Laughing about
Pancakes: do they
Grow on vines or

Perhaps in ponds
Like lily pads.
We can harvest
Them with dip nets
Like those that
One uses to pluck
Debris out of pools.

Do pancake fronds
Unfurl in spring
Flat faces openly
Tracing the viscous
Maple syrup of
An early sun?
Perhaps they sprout
Spreading their
Battered wings
Over teflon vines,
All Dali-esque
