A donor from Ohio gave me funds for the children’s home to make improvements.
One of the things that has been a problem is the electric service. There were only 2 electric receptacles, everything was run off extension cords. It looked like the proverbial explosion in a spaghetti factory. Even the power company hookup looked iffy to me but that was not a high concern.

The wires feeding into the meter are just laying on the metal roof.
I made an appointment with an electrician and we reviewed what loads were on what circuits and the needed wiring to handle the loads. He did a very workmanship job installing the wiring. His fee was 600 pesos and I bought the materials. 600 pesos amounted to $12.00 for him and his helper.

I am frustrated because my camera would take pictures, and everything seemed normal, but it did not save the pictures to the memory card. I didn’t know about it until I sat down and went to review them on the computer and there was nothing there. I found out that it was a setting on the lens that needed to be changed. That means I have a number of before pictures but none of the after pictures.
