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.

Create the ultimate barbecue area

Dolphine1313I love it when I can sit in my backyard...

Look at the mountains and grill up some animal. The barbecue area is a very nice area to lounge. Cleaned out the ash and scoured the grates. Took some black spray paint and touched up the outer barrels. They almost look new again. Need to get some grill covers. The sun really beats up the grills and rots the covers after a season or two. 3 years ago

Dolphine1313Fired up the new grill....

They turned out beautiful. Very moist and flavorful. The beauty of it all is that I didn’t have to keep checking on the fire. It held its temperature well. I grilled country ribs and a slab of St. Louis ribs. Yeah me. 3 years ago

Dolphine1313I bought another grill .....

but this time it is a dedicated smoker. It also matches one of my other charcoal grills. I did promise the family that I would not buy anymore grills. One day I hope to be good enough to enter a contest. I am not there yet. 3 years ago
