I showed a veterinarian friend, (recent immigrant, educated here) how to change the fluorescent lamps in his office.
He called and told me that he was having problems, they "aren't like the tube lamps".
It was a 60A19.(Edison base 60 watt incandescent)
This guy has 4 Degrees, is a well respected Doctor, but apparently none in screwing in a light bulb.

I had someone call once that was having a problem with misc Light Fixtures around the house. He (Banker/Stockbroker) had been living in this New Home for several months and was noticing that fixtures seemed to stop working in different areas of the House for no reason.

You may have guessed by now, ... the bulbs were starting to burn out.
(They did not know that bulbs had to be replaced!)

How many Electrical Inspectors does it take to change a light bulb?

Only one, because the world revolves around them!

Also works with General Contractors and lead guitar players...

George, hope it's way better for you...S

I'm lost

Is George Moving to WV, or just starting to do inspections more often here?

What's the scoop? (I've missed it...)

*going to read more threads that I've missed lately...*

Now I know!

That's great George, welcome back to the field.

GEEEEEEEEEZ, ya miss a coupla days
Sparky, is that an electric harmonica? If not, we could make it so.

The world revolves around Electrical Inspectors? I'm glad all are beginning to realize that, 'bout time

Moral of the leg story, NEVER break one after 40. It's been since 1/21 and I still am not allowed to walk on it, doc says if the swelling goes down, I can go back to work on limited duty (Like I was gonna do a bunch anyway).

I ain't moving YET Sparky (actually I would like to) but don't forget - I don't have anything to do, and I don't live far. Stay awake my friend, and VERY alert.
