So this might not be news for many of you, we’re on Twitter! If you already know what Twitter is you can follow us over there: @LifetimeJoe and @Lifetime365. For those of you who don’t know what Twitter is: In short, Twitter lets you answer the question “what are you doing?” and share it with your friends. Real life happens between blog posts and email. Twitter is a social media network that lets its users post short messages (up to 140 characters). People (“tweeps” or “tweeple”) can then search those posts (called “tweets”) for keywords, and can “follow” people that write stuff that interests them. You can also post your own tweets for your own tweeps to read. But this isn’t an advertisement for Twitter. What we’d like... More

Over the years, many of my friends and family have asked me why Lifetime doesn’t have the NBA logo on their basketball hoops.  Well, the answer is simple.  Money.  To have the NBA logo on Lifetime backboards, it would cost money. A lot of money.  Money that Lifetime chooses to instead put into the actual quality of their products.  Whether it’s using that money for more research, new manufacturing equipment, or improved materials, the end result is a higher quality product for you. As a former employee, I can assure you that this philosophy carries through all aspects of Lifetime.  You won’t find any lavish corporate offices at the Lifetime Products headquarters in Clearfield, Utah.  No marble floors, revolving doors, or plush corner offices with beautiful wraparound ...

I sure hope you had a fun fourth of July!  We had a great weekend, but we didn't do anything special or festive other than watch fireworks.  Kind of sad... especially since our tradition, when we lived in Arizona, was to host a pool party and BBQ at our house every Memorial Day, July 4th, and Labor Day.  We'd invite our four closet friends and spend the day playing 3-on-3 volleyball and then the guys would throw down a serious game of hoops with our Lifetime Poolside basketball/volleyball system.  Let's get something straight.  I'm not talking about a leisurely game where you splash around in the pool and daintily tap the ball over the net or into the hoop for fear of knocking down the flimsy goal.  I'm talking about a game of volleyball where you actually have to jump up to...

I recently came across this article on Kasi Good's blog, and liked it so much, I asked if we could share it here! So here it is, a cool and functional makeover for your Lifetime Table: "I am addicted to chalkboard paint... It's true. We had the kids computer and art stuff on this hideous lifetime table. It was covered in paint, since I routinely use it for painting furniture or picture frames or whatever else I decide to slather paint on. I decided it couldn't get any worse, so I rolled on a couple coats of black chalkboard paint! Now, I may as well be honest and tell you that it's not going to last forever. I can envision one of them realizing that if they try hard enough they can scratch the paint off and that will be the end of it. But it will be fun while it lasts. EDIT: I ended up stripping off t...

WARNING! This isn’t going to be your typical Lifetime365 blog post. It’s going to be a bit more technical, and a lot more geeky, but don’t let that scare you off. I’ll try and walk you through it. To start things off, you should know that I’m a computer geek, I’ll admit it. What I’m 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 don’t know about – and even if you do, you’re probably not using it this way. What is this “secret technology” of which I speak? It’s called RSS feeds. RSS is an acronym. I’d 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 th... More

Labor Day Fun
I always look forward to Labor Day with such mixed emotions. Naturally, I love having the three-day weekend and having my hubby home for an extra day of fun or to-do projects. But, it also means summer is officially over.:( My son, Nathan, started preschool today so we wanted to spend our Labor Day weekend enjoying the last remaining hours of summer freedom. We took the kids swimming one day and we also took them to Six Flags Fiesta Texas. So much fun! Nathan was tall enough to ride a few of the adult roller coasters this year so that made it even more exciting for all of us. (Wow, there is nothing more heartwarming than watching your child grin literally ear-to-ear all day long from having such genuine fun and thrills!) But, just like my last post, our adventure started off with Lifetime! Its everywhere! To enter Six Fla...
Is Your Folding Table Safe?
As consumers, we have become accustomed to looking for safety features when making important purchase decisions, especially when it comes to products like vehicles, power tools, and baby items. But, did you know you should also look for safety features when buying a folding table, too? In my past few blog posts, I've been diving into various topics that help you make more educated folding table purchases. Unfortunately, probably the most overlooked features consumers consider when buying a folding table are safety features. The last thing you need is for your table to collapse while you are using it! So, what should you look for to ensure you are purchasing a safe table? A secure locking mechanism for the table legs. Now, the tricky part is that locking mechanisms will vary depending on the leg style. For rectangular banque...
