Neighborhood Basketball Tournament

If you’re family is like mine, you’ve got some real basketball fans in the house.  Instead of just watching games on TV during basketball season, I try to get my kids and neighbors in on the action with neighborhood basketball tournaments. Whether you’re playing “H-O-R-S-E” or a simple game of one-on-one, there’s just something about a basketball goal that demands for friends to get together and have some fun.

You could play family vs family, girls vs boys, or even adults vs kids (just be careful—if the kids win, they will never let you live it down!). Get your game started on an adjustable-height basketball system from Lifetime Products—that way, you can lower the hoop, so even younger kids can be all-stars.

To celebrate the championship game, you could even give away hot chocolate and snacks to everyone who turned out to watch the event. Or maybe you could turn the entire tournament into an official neighborhood event and hold a potluck dinner after the final game. This is an awesome way to bring people together and get to know your neighbors better. So, get out there, give that basketball a workout and get the whole neighborhood in on the fun!

30 Years Later
When I was a little girl, my Grandpa made me a very special keepsake gift...a handmade wooden dollhouse, complete with shingles cut from sandpaper. Well, just like a real house roof has to be replaced about every 20 years, evidently so does a dollhouse roof! Afterour four moves, (ok, and 30 years of sun damage, dust, and wear-and-tear!) the dollhouse roof was about 10 years past its prime. The sandpaper shingles were curling up and literally falling off. My Dad and I have been wanting to replace them for several years now, but we've just never got around to it whenever he came to visit from out-of-state. This weekend my parents were here and it was a cold, rainy weekend with not much to do. So, my Dad and I FINALLY started the dollhouse roof replacement project. My Dad's father was the one who originally built the dollhouse...

Lifetime Products: A “Lean” Manufacturing Leader - Learns from Toyota
Three of our executives--President, COO, and VP of Research Development--recently had the opportunity to visit Toyotas assembly plant in Japan. Their visit was not to see how cars and trucks are built, but rather to learn more about Toyotas Lean manufacturing ways. Lean is a term used frequently here at Lifetime. Basically, Lean is centered on preserving value with less work. Lifetime has been implementing Lean methods for more than ten years however; there has been renewed emphasis the past two years. Some of which include flow of material and plant layout. The concept of Lean manufacturing is growing in popularity around the world but it originally derived from the Toyota Production System (TPS) in Japan. Our executives said Japan, in general, is an unbelievably clean and neat country which is directly reflected in their ...
