Standard American household Current is 220V single phase. Which comes into your house in two lines, each carrying 110/115 volts.

Stay with me...

Look at your circuit breaker box (or fuse box... whatever). There are two rows. Each is served by one of the 110/115 lines. If at least one of the circuits served by a breaker/fuse on each side is working, you've got good 220V to your house.

To test the voltage to the plug, you'll need a voltage meter or a neon tester (neon testers are very cheap, and worth having). Looking at the receptacle, you'll see two very similar plug-in parts, and one that is different. Test between each of the similar ones and the different one. If both sides show power, your line is good.

They say okay before they do a good line. So saying, okay a good line is from my sweater to that pillow, but a bad line is from my laptop to the tv. Another example is, okay, a good line is from my water bottle to my shoes but a bad line is from my notebook to that trashcan.

They will stand by you in good times and in bad. And, they will also have the courage tell you if you are out of line. A hanger-on or sycophant won't do that. A true friend will.
