Wheelbarrows make any yard and garden project easier

wheelbarrow Anyone who’s done their share of yard work or gardening knows that short of a good, sharp shovel, nothing beats a good, strong wheel barrow.

According to Wikipedia, wheelbarrows are “a small hand-propelled vehicle, usually with just one wheel, designed to be pushed and guided by a single person using two handles to the rear … . It is designed to distribute the weight of its load between the wheel and the operator so enabling the convenient carriage of heavier and bulkier loads than would be possible were the weight carried entirely by the operator.”

The old design had one wheel up-front and an awkward “dump pivot” – both of which made the old models prone to tipping.

Lifetime Products thought you’d suffered with the old kind of wheelbarrows long enough and set about revolutionizing the way you do yard work.

Lifetime’s wheelbarrows feature a heavy-duty 6.5 cubic-foot tub made from 100% post-consumer recycled material, a load capacity of 550 pounds, and a rust-resistant powder-coated metal frame. Add to that a two-wheel frame that’s less likely to tip, and a “dump pivot” that is closer to where you want to dump your load, and it’s a good start. But Lifetime didn’t stop there, they widened the wheel-base and lowered the center of gravity, making pushing easier and all but eliminates tipping.

Teacher Thank You Gift Ideas
Whoo-hoo! School is almost over! For most kids here in Texas, this is either the last week or next-to-last week of school. If you havent already, its time to really start thinking abouthow to thank your childs teacher. Wow. A teacher plays such an instrumental role inyour childs life. A mere gift seems almost too simple and meaningless. Nonetheless, it is the thought that counts and even the smallest gesture of appreciation is treasured by teachers. For starters, a sincere handwritten thank you note can mean more to a teacher than any tangible gift. You can even go a step further and pass along your words of praise for the teacher to a principal or administrator so they know how much their staff is valued. Its a gift that costs nothing but the impact is priceless. If you do want to give a tangible gift in addition to a than...

Enjoy the World Cup this weekend! GOAL!!!
Who will win the 2014 World Cup Final? Germany is the favorite to beat Argentina Sunday, but if you have ever watched arguably the best soccer player in the world, Lionel Messi for Argentina, Im not so sure. I personally wouldn't bet against a team that includes Messi. It would be like betting against the Chicago Bulls teams when Michael Jordan was still playing. With soccer and the MLS becoming more popular in the U.S.A., the World Cup this year has been a big deal in America (Did you see all the fans at Grant Park in Chicago?). The U.S. teams first World Cup match, a 2-1 victory, was ESPNs most w...
