Ever Wonder?

We flew to Ohio to visit my parents last week.  The kids had a blast at Mammy and Papa's house and the trip went by way too fast, as usual. I know it's crazy, but as soon as our adventure began, I couldn't help but think of Lifetime. When we went through the airport security checkpoint, I counted seven Lifetime tables just at the one gate I was using!  You know the table you put your carry-on luggage and shoes on before you push them through the conveyor belt?  Yep, a majority of the time, those are Lifetime tables!  Considering all of the hundreds of thousands of things that get dropped and scooted on the tables each day, they were in pretty good shape.  It definitely speaks well to the strength and durability of Lifetime tables.  (I did notice, however, they've started bringing in a few metal tables with built-in storage shelves underneath to stack those plastic gray bins that hold wallets, watches etc.)

When 9-11 occurred and the heightened security checks were initiated, I was a full-time employee at Lifetime.  I remember we used to talk in staff meetings about how quickly we were seeing our tables popping up at airports.  But, I hadn't put much thought into it lately...it was just another one of those airport fixtures I started to take for granted, I guess.   Think about it though...ever wonder how many thousands of Lifetime tables must be in use in airports around the globe?  Pretty cool and pretty mind-boggling!

Hobo Pies
One of my Dads traditions at the lake house is to build a campfire outside almost every night. My dad likes to eat popcorn around the fire, but when the grandkids visit, its time to break out the good ol traditional smores! After all, what kid can resist melted chocolate and gooey marshmallows smooshed between graham crackers? For a change of pace forthe kids campfiresweet treats, one night my sister-in-law introduced us all to Hobo Pies. If youve never had a Hobo Pie, youre in for, well, something different from smores. :) First of all, to make a Hobo Pie over a campfire, you need an iron pie maker, available in camping departments. Then, youll need bread and some fillings. In the tradition of pie, my sister-in-law brought apple pie filling and cherry pie filling. First, we lined up all of our ingredients on our Lifetime p...

Last month, Katie shared with you that we have lots of new products on the horizon. I'm happy to tell you that one of these new products is a Lawn Garden product that is now available a Lifetime Adirondack Chair!If you're still wondering what to get Dad for Father's Day, this is a perfect gift to give your Dad or husband to help him relax this summer in his backyard, on the front porch, or on the beach with his feet in the sand. (It's also good for moms too, so don't feel guilty about purchasing a matching chair for her!)What will Dad love about the new Lifetime Adirondack Chair? Lots of things, starting with the way it looks. It's manly - no fluffy cushions or dainty wicker. This is a sip-your-beverage and admire-your-lawn-work kind of chair. (But, as you can see, it still hasa stylish look women like, too.) At first glance...
