Okay, so I'm totally new to home repair stuff, but I'm about to learn big time (with your help) since I just moved into an older house that needs a LOT of work. First project: ceiling fan/light, since my current light has no method to turn it on and off (aside from unscrewing the bulb)! I could just put in a pull chain adaptor, but I already own the fan, and I'll be glad to have it come summer, so.... I've got a small fan, and a fan brace. Upon my primary survey, I see there are only 2 wires leading from my current lightbulb into the ceiling. This tells me it is not grounded, no? I'd rather do things "right" and address this issue, first. Where to begin? Any recommended reading either online or possibly at my local library along the lines of "electrical work for dummies?" I realize I'm new, and probably should just call an electrician to deal with this but: 1) I have, pretty much, no money. 2) I'd rather spend a month on this and come away learning something useful, than pay someone to do it tomorrow. (Knowlege=power!) 3) This blonde CAN be taught, as my experience with my motorcycle and motorcycle forums has shown me! ;-) Thanks!
