Wink The Electrician's Wife

Hello, everyone!

I think I may have found my saving grace in this site. My husband has recently hired me to do everything but the electrical stuff, and guess what? I have no clue what I'm doing. Well I have some clue- just not the jargon. We have a company out of Western Washington, mostly focusing on residential new construction. I think this site will help me make Mr. Electric proud!

Welcome to the site, I hope you own a pair of waders, because the bulls**t gets pretty deep at times.

Your company seems to have discovered quite a niche.

How is business?

I did. When I first came here I was "Electricista"-- the hot babe from NC. A few of you perverts hit on me.

I have Multiple Personalities. So you remembered Alice. Chris Kennedy strated that as a joke and I rolled with it.

Default Thank You!

Thank you for the unique welcome! To answer some questions:
- I've never been called a troll before (to my face anyway). My husband seems to like me, and I think he's the best looking Sparky I've ever known.

- As far as residential new construction - it's picking up here, but of course that's not all we do... that would just be silly. Remodels and restorations are what keeps food on the table lately - however new construction is picking up, so hopefully I'll be taken out for dinner in the near future to a "fancy" place.

My first project is getting this Quickbooks thing set up on our mac - If you have ever seen the Mac vs. PC commercials - that's exactly why we don't use PCs. BUT I am dealing with conversions and all that comes with being the computer minority .. LOL!

Again, thank you for the welcome. I look forward to finding my answers and having a few laughs too.
