Is there anything more fun in the wintertime than coming in after an afternoon of fun in the snow and enjoying a cup of hot cocoa?  It is definitely something we look forward to . . . especially if we are hosting family or close friends.  We have a delicious hot chocolate recipe we use that I would like to share.  Offering an assortment of fun additives to your cocoa makes it even more memorable!  You may also want to consider serving the hot chocolate outside.  A Lifetime adjustable-height folding table makes set-up quick and easy whether you are setting it up inside or out.  Most of us don’t have a thermal Airpot dispenser kicking around the house, so a large thermos or a crock-pot set to low will make sure that your cocoa will still stay warm so you won’t have to miss out on that l...

We've all been there for after-Christmas clean up... carting piles of garbage bags filled with wrapping paper and carboard boxes off to the recycling bin or garbage. In all the excitement, it's easy to throw out something you'll need later. Be it a certain box, bag, or set of instructions. If you received a Lifetime Basketball system, storage shed, trailer, or any other product this year and cannot find the instructions, you're in luck! All of our instructions are online at www.lifetime.com. Just click here to see a full list of assembly instructions, then search for your model number. Happy Holidays from Lifetime!   More

Shhhhhh.  Don't tell my kids.  The other day I talked with Santa at the mall and he informed me he is bringing my little girl a play kitchen.  I'm so excited, she's going to love it!  However, Santa was a bit concerned because the box is so big.  He was worried that with such a big box he may not be able to fit everything in his sleigh on Christmas Eve.  So, he asked if there was any possible way he could deliver the present early and hide it at our house until Christmas Eve when he'll put it under the tree.  Yikes! At first I thought there was no possible way I'd be able to hide a present that large at our house.  WAIT!  Ding, ding!  I just remembered the new Lifetime shed that we built in our backyard.  It's an 8'x5' shed so it has plenty of room to hid...

 With The Holidays fast approaching, I want to share another reason to pull out that Lifetime Card Table and Folding Chairs and gather family and friends together near the fireplace.  I would like to recommend another board game called “The Settlers of Catan”.“The Settlers of Catan”, which originated in Germany, is surprisingly light and enjoyable in its first play. Players take on the role of immigrants on the newly discovered island of Catan. The game “board” is obviously different. It is comprised of several hexagonal tiles randomly arranged into the shape of a large hexagon.  Since the tiles will almost certainly be arranged differently for every game, each game will be different.  Each tile represents a particular resource such as wood, brick, sheep, ore, ...

If you're like me, you've been shopping up a storm this past month and have acquired enough receipts to wallpaper a room.  I'll hang on to them for a few weeks after Christmas just in case something is broken, doesn't fit, etc.  But, once I see everything is good to go, I usually shred the receipt unless it is a big ticket item or electronic device.  Here's a friendly holiday tip:  if the product has a warranty, don't throw away the receipt!  I learned this lesson the hard way.  About two years ago I purchased a Lifetime 4' fold-in-half adjustable height table as a gift for my mom. As a former employee of Lifetime, I was obviously familiar with the strength and durability of Lifetime tables and had seen first-hand the outstanding manufacturing process.  However, I also should have known tha...

 My friends and family know that I love the holiday season – in fact, it’s the time of year when my three favorite G’s come into play: get togethers, gift giving and gift wrapping.  I absolutely love to gift wrap.  There’s nothing better than cranking up the holiday music, making a hot cup of cocoa and rolling out the wrapping paper.Over the years, I’ve found that setting up a gift-wrapping station is the best way to stay organized. One year, I almost gave my grandma a necktie meant for my dad.  Since then, I’m diligent about making sure I set up a proper wrapping station.  Wrapping on a flat surface is key, so I break out my 4-foot fold-in-half Lifetime table before I go to work.  I use one half of the table for actual cutting and wrapping; the other side ...

It's hard to believe that Christmas is almost here.  We don't really have any big pre-holiday traditions of our own, but we do try to partake in some of the local festivities wherever we live.  To help get us in the holiday spirit this year, we attended the annual Wassailfest one evening in a nearby town.  You're probably thinking, "what in the world is a Wassailfest?"  Don't worry, so were we!  I've heard of the Christmas carol "Here We Come A Wassailing" but didn't really know much more. Once I read the lyrics and did a little more reading, everything made more sense!  Wassail is a traditional European beverage, popular at the holidays.  (It tastes kind of like hot apple cider.)  Apparently, wassailing dates back to the middle ages as an early form of holiday char...

 "If you eat, you qualify!" This is the motto of the Community Food Co-Op of Utah of which I've been a member since last Spring. The way it works is very simple. The program allows consumers to buy fresh, local food at wholesale prices, without paying for the services of "a middle man," namely the big supermarkets. Members of the co-op submit their monthly orders via telephone or email. Volunteers pick up the food from local wholesalers, package it at the co-op warehouse in Salt Lake, and deliver it to various Pick Up locations in the Salt Lake valley. Obviously, buying in bulk saves us money, so the more members, the less each of us pays for our groceries!  So where does Lifetime come in? At our "Store!" As you can see, the Store is actually a garage, generously made available to the co-op members by one of our vo... More

It's official!  Our Lifetime shed building project is finished!  A few weeks ago we added a wood "skirt" to the front of the wood platform to hide the gap underneath, to prevent critters from getting under our shed, and to make it more attractive.  Since we have a wood fence around our yard, we bought two more fence boards and cut them into short pieces.  We nailed them onto the platform and basically made a miniature fence along the bottom front of the shed.  We then stained it to match the rest of our fencing.  It turned out great! We used some of the rock that was left from building our house (and rock that we dug up in our yard when we built our shed) to build some landscaping beds around the shed.  We planted a few pansies, and a bush, and - voila- we were done! We originally built our... More

Cold Weather Gardening
Gardening in Vermont, I know about cold weather. The growing season is short and intense. I dont dare go away in May or early June, because if I dont get everything planted, I may miss the opportunity to get annual plants in the ground soon enough so they produce before a fall frost. Then theres September and October when frost can come at any time. Yes, its a crazy place to garden, but Ive learned some great tips over the years to make the gardening easier and more productive. Here are some of my best tips: Build the Soil- With the short growing season and cool temperatures, the soil needs to be in tiptop shape to produce the best annual flowers and vegetables. I like to add a 1- to 2-inch thick deep layer of compost on my beds every spring and work it in. Its cheapest to buy the compost in bulk from a garden center or have...

Keeping Kids’ Safety in Mind
Spring is in the air―at least here in Utah. The neighborhood is slowly coming back to life as kids and their parents are reemerging from their indoor hibernation. Time to find the bicycle pump and rollerblade knee pads because, at last, the kids can go outside and play! With the comeback of Spring also comes a greater need for drivers to be aware of the little ones out and about. To this end, Lifetime is introducing a new product this season, the Child Alert sign. This unique sign is shaped like a small child chasing after a soccer ball. Chucky, as we affectionately refer to him, is bright construction orange and carries a sign that says slow. His base is made similar to the portable bases that Lifetime made famous with our basketball systems, and can be filled with water or sand for even more stability. If youre like me, ...
