Keeping Kids’ Safety in Mind

Untitled.pngSpring 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 you’re like me, seeing unaware drivers race down your street makes you want to shout something you wouldn’t want your kids to hear! I think most drivers aren’t aware they are going too fast. Putting a “Chucky” out on the curb seems to help, and is much more polite than what you would have said!

I for one am glad to see the leaves emerging and the kids outside once again.

Head on over to your local Costco and pick one up and get out and enjoy the spring, and be safe!

Hosting A Backyard Campout Birthday Party
It's been almost three weeks. Whew. I think my husband and I have finally recovered. I don't know what we were thinking but we somehow let our son talk us into a Backyard Campout Party for his 8th birthday. (Sniff, sniff. I still can't believe my little man is 8 years old already!) It seemed harmless enough, but this was his first group sleepover and "no guests' parents" birthday party so it was a pretty big milestone for him -- and us. After he made his list of neighborhood kids and classmates he wanted to invite, the list totaled 12 kids which sounded manageable. After all, teachers do this all the time with lots more kids, right? The kids were all talking aboutthe party for days beforehand. In addition to the sleepover, the other "big deal" of the party was that they all walked home with my son from school. (Come on think...
Rich Snippets: Coming Soon to a Search Engine Near You!
Search engines not only display content, they spider web pages, gathering information from your pages, then re-work all that information into a listing that searchers see when they're looking for stuff -- and the cycle is complete. When a person goes to a search engine they have a good idea of what theyre looking for (otherwise they'll be on StumbleUpon, right?). With millions of search results being found and displayed, sometimes it's hard for people to find what they're looking for among all those results. To help combat that, Google is trying to show searchers more information about their search results. Information about information? That sounds a lot like meta-data! Yes, yes it does! Here at Lifetime, we're starting to roll out web pages that will take advantage of Google's "Rich Snippits" to get more information...
We Opened A Health Clinic for Our Employees!
You need a check-up with your doctor. So, you wait on the phone to make an appointment that ends up getting scheduled several dayslater. You take time off work... drive across town... sit in the waiting room... see the doctor... and drive back to work. Sometimes it can be a half-day adventure for even the simplest of doctor appointments. Sound familiar? Lifetime knows that trying to figure out how to squeeze amedical appointment into work schedules and school schedules can be almost impossible sometimes. So, we decided to make it more convenient for our employees and their families to get medical care. How? We opened the Lifetime Health Clinic right at our factory! Now our employees can make an appointment and simply walk a short distance to see a doctor right where they work. And, they can bring their dependents, too. Sinc...
