Electrical Contractor vs Electrician
I am an enigma; I am us. I describe myself as an electrician and electrical contractor. But no, I can not be both. According to the universally accepted authority on such things, Wikipedia, an electrician is an entirely different creature than an electrical contractor.
They say “An electrical contractor is different from an electrician; an electrician is an individual tradesman and an electrical contractor is a business person or company that employs electricians. Both usually hold licenses and insurances to properly and safely operate a business…” I feel like I meet both description, but Wikipedia will have none of that.
So, according to Wikipedia, I am one or the other. I can not be both. The fact that I am the owner of Goodiel Electric, LLC, a Jensen Beach electrical contracting company, must then make me an electrical contractor. That seem reasonable to me, but not to other authorities. In fact, the search engine giant Google.com claims that the business, Goodiel Electric, LLC, can not categorize itself as an electrical contractor, but will allow it to categorize itself as an electrician.
They say “Categories describe what your business is, not what it does or what it sells.” Their system will allow Goodiel Electric, LLC to be categorized as “electrician” or “contractor”, but not as an “electrical contractor” Their system will not except “electrical contractor” as a business category. My solution to that was to list Goodiel Electric, LLC as “electrician” and “contractor.” Google.com was perfectly happy with that, as was I.
The strange thing about Google’s obsession in this instance is that now a search on the phrase “Jensen Beach Electrical Contractor” produces a Google Places listing for Goodiel Electric, LLC. I can live with that.

Smoke & Fire Alarm System
Residential Fire Alarm System Installation
One of the most important fire safety devices in a home is a smoke and fire alarm system. Several studies have concluded that when working smoke alarm systems are present, the chance of dying from the fire is cut in half. Smoke alarms currently in place have saved thousands of lives, but several problems exist. First, the 12% of homes without alarms have more than half of the fires; second, it is estimated that a third of the smoke alarms in place are not working, often due to failure to replace a worn out battery; and third, many homes do not have as many smoke alarms as are needed to protect the occupants properly.
