An accomplished automobile dealer who made his debut in the industry when he was only 15 years old, Jeffrey W. Lupient currently serves as the Executive Manager of Jim Lupient Infiniti of Golden Valley and the Dealer Principal of Lupient Nissan. Earning the coveted Infiniti Award of Excellence in 2008, 2009, and 2010, Mr. Lupient consistently demonstrates skill and dedication in all his dealings with his family businesses. Brief descriptions of the automobile manufactures Infiniti and Nissan are included below.

Nissan – Established in 1914 under the brand name Datsun, Japanese multinational car manufacturing firm Nissan Motor Company, Ltd. derived its original name from an acronym of the founding partners’ family names: Den, Aoyama, and Takeuchi. After trying out several different name iterations, the company settled upon their current brand name, Nissan. Throughout the automobile manufacturer’s long and successful history, Nissan has held partnerships with other esteemed car companies, including the Ford Motor Company and the Austin Motor Company. At present, Nissan is making headlines for its new hybrid and electric technology. Using this innovative technology, which serves as a departure from Toyota’s competing electric battery designs, Nissan introduced in December 2010 the Nissan Leaf, a five-door all-electric hatchback which has since won several industry awards not only for innovation and efficiency, but also for overall craftsmanship.

Infiniti – Cars manufactured under this brand represent the luxury line of vehicles by Nissan Motors. Dating back to 1989 with the launch of the Infiniti Q45, the Infiniti brand has drawn increasing popularity in the U.S. market since its debut, producing a number of popular model series. Though the Q45 model has been discontinued, Infiniti currently manufactures five different series: the Infiniti G mid-size, the M sedan, the EX compact crossover SUV, the FX mid-size SUV, and the QX56 five-door SUV. Additionally, in response to the growing demand for more fuel-efficient and environmentally friendly vehicles, Infiniti is currently developing a hybrid version of the M sedan. Moreover, diesel iterations of the EX, FX, and M sedans are expected to appear in the European market in the near future.

Do you and your family finally have a night together but cannot think of anything to do as a family? Try one of these fun activities.

1. Have a Picnic Unable to agree on lunch or dinner? Round up the family, set out for the grocery store, and buy the ingredients for everyone’s favorite simple meal. When you return home, cook the meals and load them in picnic-safe dishware, find a blanket, and set out for your local park and have a picnic. Make sure to pack a cooler filled with beverages. Rain spoiling your picnic plans? No problem: clear a space in the living room and have your picnic at home.

2. Cook and Bake Together Baking cookies is a time-honored tradition among family members. Gather the ingredients for everyone’s favorite treats and get to baking. Of course, any delectable delight will do. Even better, have everyone contribute an idea for a food item, then take a trip to the grocery store, buy all the ingredients, and cook the entire meal (including dessert) together.

3. Watch Movies These days, most people have DVD players, Netflix, or some other means of watching movies; and of course, everyone has a favorite movie. Ask all your family members to write the title of their favorite film on a scrap of paper, then fold all the paper, put all slips into a container, and have someone draw one. Before you watch the chosen movie, get your popcorn, drinks, and other snacks ready. On a weekend, when you have more free time, set aside an entire day for a movie marathon, or take a trip to your local theater and take in a movie or two.

4. Exercise and Play Sports If everyone needs some time out of the house, sports and other physical activities make for a great way to burn energy and get in a good workout. Invest in family bikes and take a different route through the neighborhood every week, or plan longer excursions for the weekends. You could also sign everyone up for a sport; just make sure everyone gets on the same team.

5. Volunteer Giving back to your community as a family makes for a great bonding activity. Have everyone research local charities and volunteer activities, then sign up for one, two, or more.
