My name is Gerald Caouette, presently Retired -
Previoously employed as an electrical equipment specialist.
For the Continental Group, providing testing and diagnostic services
for electical equipment ie. electric motors breakers etc.
I also spent over 20 years with, Canadian Westinghouse in the electrical services department.
after which the opportunity presented itself, for me to pursue the chance to be my own boss.
The broad range of contacts and experience gained during that tenure, enabled me to enjoy the
life style, that goes with beings self employed " longer hours and lower pay, but freedom"
Subcontracting my skills to a number of larger electrical firms and supplementing
my cash flow with trading in small items, on the internet, etc. has been quite interesting
and rewarding , as it has allowed me to pursue my interests more fully, and still make a
reasonable living .
My hobbies include amateur radio, electronic experimentation and most aspects of computers.
When ever I get a chance I also enjoy a bit of fishing and gold panning
As I have time I will be adding links to the family tree and other stuff
