How to Get More Seating Around Your Patio Table

Are you planning a backyard picnic to celebrate the end of summer or upcoming Labor Day? Still trying to figure out where everyone can sit?  If you're like me, you have a nice patio table and chair set, but it seems like I'm still always short just one or two chairs to be able to have everyone sit together.  I could set up my Lifetime card table and folding chairs, but it feels awkward having two people dine by themselves away from the group. 

Well, here's a handy suggestion my mom shared with me that's the perfect solution to your seating dilemma. Typically, the chairs that come with a  patio table are very comfy, but they are also usually very wide and feature arm rests.  If you need to add a few extra seats to your patio table, simply use your Lifetime folding chairs instead of your bulky patio chairs and you'll have instant extra room!

Check out these pictures to see what I mean.  Using my patio chairs, my table can only seat six people maximum. But, by using my Lifetime folding chairs, I could actually fit 10 chairs around the table if I needed so we can all eat together at one table. (If I had 10 Lifetime chairs, that is.  I actually only have eight so I couldn't quite fill it up completely.)   Yes, it's a tight squeeze, but it does work!  And, don't worry, Lifetime chairs are made of high-density polyethylene and powder-coated steel that are weather-resistant so the chairs are perfectly fine outside if happens to starting raining.

I hope this helps for your next big backyard BBQ.  Happy dining!

Last Minute Homemade Lifetime Halloween Costumes
A few days ago we helped my son Nathan make his first homemade Halloween costume. Im embarrassed to admit, but this is the first year we have fully embraced the fun and festivities and attempted a homemade costume. Ive always wanted to, but normally Nathan has always eyed something in the store that he really wanted to be like Elmo, a spider etc. (except last year when he wanted to wear his own flight suit to be a fighter pilot like Daddy!). And, it just made things a lot easier anyway. This year Nathan is really into Disneys Wall-E, and robots in general. So, we made our own robot. First, we spray painted two rectangular boxes with silver metallic paint. Next, we cut the bottom out of the body box, and we also cut a head hole and arm holes. In the smaller head box, we cut out a big rectangle for his face to poke through. Th...
How to find screaming deals using technology
WARNING! This isnt going to be your typical Lifetime365 blog post. Its going to be a bit more technical, and a lot more geeky, but dont let that scare you off. Ill try and walk you through it. To start things off, you should know that Im a computer geek, Ill admit it. What Im going to tell you now is something that us geeks have known about for a long, long time, but something that you normal people probably dont know about and even if you do, youre probably not using it this way. What is this secret technology of which I speak? Its called RSS feeds. RSS is an acronym. Id tell you what it stands for but people have been arguing over that since it first came out. Then ATOM feeds came along. All of this ties in with RDF and the semantic web. Im not going to go into that much detail, just know that when someone talks about RS...
