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.

We finally did take our last week of 2010 in the first week of Dec 2010. It was my hubbie first time to Hawaii. ( I have been there 2 times before, however like 15 years ago). So I decided to have us do all the touristy stuff to see if he liked it and would consider coming back again.

We had lovely weather for the most part, and had a chance to hang out on the beach, albeit a short time as this is not his forte. We did go up the PCC on the northeastern side. We also did a Cirle Island Tour to see other aspects of Oahu from the North Shore, to Diamond Head Crater, to Ala Moana Shopping Center.

He enjoyed himself and hopefully we can going again soon. Next time we can try Maui and the island of Hawaii ( where it is a little less touristy). 3 years ago

vwruleschickAhhh amore a Italia

Hubbie and I were able to pull ourselves away from home for two weeks and check out Sardinia for lovely week as well as the Czech Republic.

If you haven’t been there, you should go. Beautiful beaches, nice people, great cappiccinos and tasty pasta & wine, warm weather and some crazy driving in the mix made for an exciting and yet relaxing vacation on the island of Sardinia.

Too bad, we had to jump back over to mainland Europe where the weather was in already in the single digits. Brrrr. But we managed and got back home with a fading tan and great memories of Italy and our travels across to the Czech Republic.

Hmmm, wonder where we will go next? 4 years ago

vwruleschickPortland, Powells and Stumptown Coffee

Figured out I had a weekend free from night school. So told hubbie that we need to getaway, we finally decided Portland.

I could hit a couple birds with one stone as this destination offer some new modern architectural homes that hubbie had missed the tour late last year. So we did our own drive by and got outside pics to add to. I love Oregon as it has no sales tax and indulged in some shopping at Woodburn just south of Portland. Plus, we both got to do an Epicurean Walking Tour and hang out in Powell’s for a couple hours.

Definite place we would go again to visit. Wish we had more time to hang and explore the lovely shops and cafes and wine bars. 4 years ago

vwruleschickDo the Pullayup & Moore Theatre

Hubbie and I decided to go see some concerts on our time off. We went to the Moore Theatre located in downtown Seattle to see Collective Soul. Interesting heritage building, needs some restoration but definitely has some good bones and great architectual details.

We also stopped by the Pullayup Fair last week (southwest of Seattle) and saw Toby Mac and Third Day perform. Lots of driving, but so worth is so that we can stop at 2am at Haggens to shop for food we don’t have in Canada – hehehee 5 years ago

vwruleschickGet out of your comfort zone!

I love to travel, especially by car or by plane. But there are other modes likes boat, train, bike or foot. I need a change of scenery. I love travelling internationally as there are different cultures and experiences to have, hence my goal of travelling outside of the country.

So far in 2009, I have take the opportunity to travel twice outside the country:
-April took a weekend trip to Laconner, WA for their Tulip Festival (picture above is from there)
-June took a daytrip down to Fairhaven, WA to check out their historic town 5 years ago
