  • As a former electrician who worked in the field back in the 80s, home service voltage has always varied from 110 to 120. and 220 to 240. It all depends on the transformers being used in the area. In reality, it's usually somewhere in between. 115-117 is common. Also, that difference is nothing you ever need to worry about. Any lower voltage appliances will work fine on anything from 110 to 120 and even beyond. Same with 220-240.

  • C O N G R A T U L A T I O N S ! When I heard "PodCast", I thought "Oh NO, not just another audio recording, which are usually very boring" I started listening to it... I liked the music and the audio level... Both of you did NOT talk real slow and monotone... Your pace was set at a very nice speed... just enough to keep it moving right along without getting boring... I liked the "commercials" providing nice breaks in the action... You kept things moving very nicely... Keeping on the Subject and was covered very well... It was a real pleasure listening to it! I was really surprised... I also liked the Reviews that you mentioned... You Both have done a wonderful job on it... Keep up your methods, format, etc. etc. Thank you very much! Joe ps: Thank you for having a Comment Verification of something that is easier to read! Much better than all of those other screwed-up messes to try to read properly! Thank you!
