About

I am a retired member of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) after 46 years of service. My last employer was the Golden Gate Bridge Highway & Transportation District in San Francisco, CA.

Enough about me. Click here for more about me from Sweet Mother’s perspective.

Please join me while I share my photography, tell some stories and spread a little insight into my life as an electrician who stumbled upon the best job of his life.

    How on earth do I get all the now unused formulae out of my head? Not just the mundane V=IR but all the resistivity, bandwidth, wave functions et al!!!!!!!
    Well, the prompt does ask for questions!

      Let me know if you figure that out, Peter. I look at all of those unused formulae as “psychic tattoos”. They were very meaningful at the time and now they pass as decoration and topics of conversation with those in-the-know.

            Oooh, here I have an expert (at least in comparison to my experience) .. Alan, my phone is different from yours, I have a Samsung 7 and some of my videos “may” have been taken on my older Samsung 5.. But transferred fine onto the S7.. Two of my videos (The Find and Stewie Chicken) have uploaded to WP in a wonky wide screen orientation but play normal on my phone from my gallery.. Do you have any suggestions on how I can fix this for those 2 videos ? *waits with excited anticipation*

            I have not ventured into the land of mobile video, Pan, and I know even less about Samsung phones. Perhaps someone reading this thread can help you out.

            Is there anybody out there who can help Pan?

            Thanks in advance,

    Saw your post from Community Pool. I imagine you are not afraid of heights? Goodness that takes some large cajones, look forward to reading some of your stories. I bet after almost 50 yrs in the profession you have plenty to share!

      Good afternoon and thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment.

      No, I am not afraid of heights—just like my numerous former co-workers. You can check out some of my stories by clicking on the “Best of Ohm Sweet Ohm” in the Featured Posts box in the right sidebar of the page. I will soon be adding a section to collect stories about working in the Trades, on the bridge and around the country, so stay tuned for that.

      To be accurate, I got paid big bucks to climb the cables—and I would have done it for free (don’t tell the Big Boss) just to have the view from up there.

    I have lived on the peninsula and in San Jose all my life (briefly in SF). “The City”and the bridge are still as magical as when I was a child. Your video brought tears to my eyes. What an amazing career you had. Thank you for taking care of our treasure!

      Thank you for your kind words, Susan. It was a pleasure to be one of the stewards of the bridge for 15 years. Life goes on (and so does traffic).
