Holiday greetings to everyone from all of us on A Firm Foundation Radio show! And this Saturday beginning at 9:00am. that’s what’s up, Holiday lights at Greenfield Village.
We attended and broadcast the show there in 2010, and the event every holiday season is still one of the country’s leading holiday events for the family according to USA Today.  Joining us live from Greenfield Village will be Jim Johnson, one of the creators of the show.

Then at 10:00 we completely change gears and welcome Stan Korducki, CEO of Wood County Hospital, and former President of the State Hospital Association in Ohio. Looming for many is the December 23 deadline to sign up for Obama Care. As of today more people are without health insurance today than before Obama Care became law. Within the next year or so, all of us could be in the same boat. Hear some expert advice from Stan.
