    That sounds like a good idea.

    Did anyone mention to turn off the breaker?
    You could turn off the breaker, as sometimes I do. But usually only when the said bulb is giving me grief.

    Ah, but there's the rub. Those of us with experience can take some liberties (justified or not ) that the average DIY'r should not. It's always best to err to the side of caution and flip the breaker than to get your hair curled by an active socket.

    You are making light of this!
    A request from the utility company for total shut-down should be made and then wear PPR to remove and replace the bulb! Hard hat and face sheild as a minimum! Gloves rated to 15kv would be very useful!

    I have noticed that I take fewer & fewer liberties as time marches on.
    All kidding aside, flipping that breaker is paramount.

    I use to take liberties, but at my age she might say yes then what am I going to do?
