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.

blondysunMy Pirate Wedding

We got married May 5 2007 in Port Orange, FL. It was so much fun. I am not into the lacy perfect frilly kind of wedding stuff so this was perfect. Almost everyone of our guests dressed up as pirates! To start the ceremony, my husband “stole” treasure from the centerpieces of the tables. My mother “caught” him and sentenced him to walk the plank. As our entire audience was chanting “Walk the Plank, Walk the Plank” my husband held off the wedding party with his sword while they surrounded him. Then my dad interupted the activity, telling everyone one that “nobody is going to be walking the plank. There’s been a little hugging here, and probably a little kissing, so, darn-it, there’s going to be a WEDDING!” Tony, glad for the interuption of his death sentence, agreed to it and then the ceremony proceeded. The wedding party entered to “Cat-like tread” from Pirates of Penzance. The vows were pretty funny, so it was kind of like having a laugh-track, we had to pause between almost every line while people laughed. We borrowed the vows from Captn Slappy’s advice on and changed them and added parts of our own. After we were man and wife, we went back up the aisle to “Pirates Life for Me”. After that, we drank a lot of rum, ate lots of good Italian food from, and danced like crazy to DJ Andy Ferrari’s music. My wedding cake was a pirate ship that my mother constructed and decorated herself. We forgot a cake cutting knife, but luckily, the best man handed Tony his own sword and we cut the cake with the sword.

I am still working on tweeking my wedding pictures, but I am posting them on myspace as I go, so you can look for them there.

We honeymooned on the Disney Wonder cruise ship, which had a pirate night that we wore our wedding costumes to. Also, it docked one day at Castaway Cay where the actual Flying Dutchman pirate ship from POTC 2 & 3 is beached! So we kind of kept the pirate theme going for awhile! 7 years ago
