    I'm still stuck with 1.5v batteries and little 9.0v motors and teeny
    light bulbs. All I know how to use is wires, low-voltage batteries,
    small motors and bulbs, and resistors. I don't even no how a capacitor
    is! I was searching for a forum where some one could explain this
    stuff to me.

    It's actually not a terribly bad idea to get one of those
    Gazillion'n'One project kits from Radio Shack or similar. Gives you a
    place to start and some directed lessons.

    You'll need a multimeter but you can find OK ones for $20 and pretty
    decent ones for $100. I don't know if they still have it but recently had a deal where any purchase over $50 they
    would throw in a free multimeter. I've got a couple; they're OK.

    Its a bit more than can be generally explained in a forum.
    Answering specific questions is one thing, teaching AC/DC
    theory is another.

    Radio Shack sells a number of books, including beginners.

    The truth as I perceive it to be.
    Your perception may be different.

    ...All I know how to use is wires, low-voltage batteries,
    Yup. Hands-on is a real teacher.
    I started with an even simpler basic electricity kit
    which, among other things, had a compass and a coil of wire in it
    to use as a galvanometer (simpler than a DVM).
    This was when RS was still a mom-and-pop operation
    and Lafayette & Olsen were common names.
