How do you like your new car?

Have you looked at new cars lately?  Just one step below self driving most of the new models have driving and safety accessories that keep the car in the correct lane,  slow down as traffic slows down,  and backup cameras to keep you from backing into things.   Well we bought one and it’s fabulous,  with all these gadgets and gizmos,  plus more than 44 mpg.

This Saturday on A Firm Foundation for Life we are at the shop of Sylvania Auto Restyling and Glass,  just off the Central Ave. strip to talk about all this technology,  plus leather interiors,  sunroofs,  heated seats,  glass replacement and all the other after market options that can be added if the car you purchase doesn’t have these options factory installed.   We will be joined in the shop with Les and Mike Breininger,  owners of Sylvania Auto Restyling & Glass to enlighten us on this work.

The program starts at 9:00 am. on Saturday can be heard again Sundays at 7:00 am.  on 1370 WSPD,  streamed live @ remotely on your I-phone with the I-Heart radio media app.  Many of these car options we discuss can be viewed on our Facebook Live @ “A Firm Foundation for Life”.

Memorial Day Weekend!

Summer has arrived

Summer is here both on the calendar and with our weather.  Blooms are abundant and we have been mowing grass twice a week.   This Saturday on A Firm Foundation for Life,  a holiday weekend,  but not for N. W. Ohio’s most trusted hosts.   Imagine owning a small business,  then try to imagine owning two different small businesses in the same household.   Hear about that Saturday as we welcome for the first time to the program,  Lisa Palmer,  owner Calico, Sage, and Thyme,  a Bowling Green landmark since 1975,  Lisa has owned it now for two years.  Brett Palmer,  owner,  Jim Palmer Excavating,  (JPX),  since 1961,  Brett has been doing this all his life,  but the work today is much more complex,  serious,  and in many cases risking work.   So Saturday you can hear about,  flowers,  tea,  herbs, gifts,  artist consignments,  tractors,  backhoes, excavators, mini equipment, dirt,  stone, topsoil,  sewers,  and water lines.   A full program with something for everyone . . . .

Rick and Jackie take their hats off to all who have served this Country,  including Jackie’s father,  Tom,  all her uncles,  and Rick’s uncle Herb a decorated WWII veteran still living in Florida.

A Firm Foundation for life is available on several platforms,  Saturday at 9:00 am. or Sunday at 7:00 am.  live radio,  1370 WSPD,  streamed @ remotely with the I-Heart media app on I-Heart radio,  and on Facebook live @  “A Firm Foundation for Life”
