The mysterious, mostly disappeared world of LIFE magazine is all still there: Staffers hacking at typewriters, beefing about the managing editor, draining double Scotches and martinis before lunch. My dad, a staff writer and later an editor, took his work seriously as far as I could tell. There were days when once we were done with school, my brother and I would be allowed up to my parents' offices at the Time-Life Building on 6th Avenue. One of LIFE's little traditions was to award a silver nut dish to every employee with a newborn baby.
When I was seven or eight, I could tell the difference in taste between several brands of whiskey.
No matter how late these gatherings went, no matter how many empty bottles, "Lifers" went in the next morning and tried to put some words on paper. In the summer of 2010, Lifetime received a phone call from a 14-year-old Scout named Mason. In the meantime, Mason organized a fundraiser to help cover other costs of the project including pouring the cement pad, shelves and containers. Today, Mason has earned his Eagle Scout rank and the Spectrum program has a spacious shed to store their materials. We are excited to announce our newest lawn and garden productthe revolutionary Lifetime Convertible Bench! Customer Reviews are veryhelpfulto online shoppers.The best reviews are the ones that provide specific details rather than general statements. The Lifetime Children’s Square Folding Table and Stacking Chairs are hitting Costco stores this week! The table comes in our traditional almond color, and the cute stack chairs are available in blue, green, and almond.
Since I knew this was going to get pretty messy, I didn’t really want to use my wooden kitchen table, so I decided to pull out my trusty 4-Foot Fold-In-Half Lifetime Table.
Lifetime Storage Shed - 60057 Outdoor Storage Building 7 x 4.5 Ft.Are you in need of a storage building but do not have much space to put it? With 2 relatively large boxes needed for assembly, I was concerned how it would all go together. I did not want a larger shed that protruded into my back yard and am very happy with the proportion of this shed to my yard. When I first opened the boxes I thought assembly would be a nightmare, but I couldn't have been more wrong. The shed is water tight and I've had some good downpours and the cardboard I left on the floor is dry, so kudo's for the design.
The only thing I would change is the lag bolt installation method and look into some way of securing the wall sections to the deck frame for a more wind resistant structure. Forget the close-to-the-bone, profit-focused days of today's magazines, and travel back, just for a minute, to the cocktail-fogged days and nights at Time Inc.'s LIFE magazine where my parents, both gone now, earned their paychecks during the 1960s. Dad had covered the Mercury and Gemini space shots for LIFE, and when Glenn became the first American in orbit, Dad wrote the article. I would have told you I preferred Dewar's White Label (like my Dad), but the secret truth was that I thought them all inferior to ginger ale.


About how we've lost the idea that work and weeknights can be composed not just of duty, but of a bit of fun. The Boy Scouts of America was incorporated and chartered by the United States Congress on February 8, 1910.
He was calling on behalf of the Spectrum program at the local Burton Elementary School in Layton, Utah (very close to Lifetime’s headquarters).
We look forward to more spectacular things from Mason and the Spectrum program, starting with their next annual play! When we announced we were hosting our biggest giveaway of the year,your entries started rolling in fast! The Lifetime Convertible Bench is a simulated wood garden bench that allows one person to easily convert single-handedly into a table in just seconds simply by squeezing a built-in handle and tipping the bench back. With so many different retailers carrying our products, I wanted to help you wade through the mess.
This is a project that the whole company has rallied around – even employees can’t wait to get their hands on these! My husband not only carves pumpkins, but he is amazing at shaving in faces, and doing all sorts of cool stuff. Your instructions with the labeling of parts and hardware by section were incredible and allowed me to complete the assembly smoothly with little help. Since there is no need to walk in the shed like a larger shed would require, all of the floor space is efficiently used. The instruction book indicates 3 people to assemble (in some stages) but I did it by myself.
This is shipped in to very large heavy boxes so if your planning to buy locally, bring a pick up truck or a FULL sized station wagon as the boxes are about 8 feet long and 16 tall 28 wide. Most people do not hire this out as the instruction manual is designed for the homeowner to put this together. Accurate Tracking: Tracking information is automatically emailed to you just as soon as the order ships out. I remember we had reams of these piled up in our Manhattan apartment -- perfect fodder for papier mache and paper planes. I don't know how it went for the business side of the magazine, but in editorial, every night of the week was ripe for a party. On a good night, we'd be allowed little swallows of "hooch," and everyone would laugh if we winced as the stuff went down. Boozing and puffing on Parliaments or Camels was as crucial to my parents and their co-workers as to infantry privates. And sometimes it fired up right after work at La Fonda del Sol, a dramatic South American restaurant in the lobby of the company building. Spectrum is a program designed to provide activities for children who are academically gifted. Mason was familiar with Lifetime sheds, and he was also looking for a project to help him earn his Eagle Scout rank, the highest distinction awarded in the BSA which requires fulfillment of leadership, service and outdoor skills.
He made a few more calls, and received more good news from the Davis County School District.


As expected, the work proved to be a great learning experience in patience and teamwork, as he worked alongside his peers to read and follow the step-by-step directions. Not only did we give away our BIGGEST type of product we make, we also had the biggestnumber of entries to date.
Additionally, when two Lifetime Convertible Benches are placed together in the table position, they create an instant, full-sized picnic table with attached benches. I find more satisfaction in staying home, eating too much, and watching football, but, to each their own. I paid less than the retail price from my local club store but this is worth the $$ even at retail. When I think of how my Mom would react to today's child-focused, early-to-bed grownups, I can almost hear her scoffing and surprise: "You can't go out because of 'quality time' with your kid? When I got the chance, I always begged to eat at La Fonda, not because I liked the char-burned skewers of meat, but because it felt adult.
Among their activities, they put on a play once a year, which we hear is a great performance. We asked you to simply tell us how you would use a Lifetime shed and, boy, did we get an earful. I went one year with my wife and after I got beat by a bunch of spry and motivated ladies while trying to get some sheets, I decided to retire from Black Fridaying (is that even a word?).
My concerns are the shed does not have a solid anchoring system for the walls to the included flooring. But he wasn't calling to talk just about the program; he was calling because the local Spectrum program had a problem that was putting their annual play in jeopardy.
Lawn and gardenequipmenttopped the list as the most popular items people planned to keep in a Lifetime shed. Thenclick on the blue text that says"write a review" located beneath the title of the product. Wood sheds tend to crack and splinter over time, which requires regular maintenance like painting. IMHO, pop joints from wall sections to the floor plate (read lego), are not very secure if there is a high wind.
However,storing outdoor toys and bikes, garage stuff and tools, extrakids' clothes, and holiday decorations were also frequently mentioned. Because our products are sold through other majorretailers as well,look foropportunites to submit reviews totheir sites, too.
We even had some creative plans including to use the shed for a workshop, a "man cave", a playhouse, storing boat equipment, storing pool equipment,hiding a water tank, and keeping firewood dry. The polyethylene plastic for this shed is blow-molded with a wood grain finish; so you get the attractiveness of wood, without the peeling, cracking, splintering and maintenance. Polyethylene plastic is durable and UV-treated, so you get the strength and longevity in the sun of metal, without the concern of rusting and denting.
