comment Where to find Adapter for E-11 or E-14 to E-26 light socket
I am assuming (because his profile lists Georgia) that he is referring to a standard "medium base" edison socket (e26/e27).

comment How do I find the source of the water leaking through the ceiling?
FYI, back of the envelope suggests that in a 15x15x8 foot room at 60 degrees with 60% RH, you will have approximately 9 ounces of extra water in the air. The dew point at those conditions will be approximately 45 degrees. Any surface in the room which is at or below 45 degrees will collect condensation.

Condensation would be my guess as well. In winter, you should be shooting for about 20% humidity in Minnesota. Have you updated your furnace to a high efficiency model over the last year? Have you upgraded the windows? Both of these things will increase your indoor humidity during the winter. Try running a dehumidifier in the affected areas, and see if the problem goes away.

comment How can I fireproof a room?
Well, the fire that reaches the drywall is not going to be 3000K. Whatever it is, the piece of equipment he is talking about will only generate that temperature internally (likely in a very small, tightly sealed cavity). A fire generated from that device will likely be much cooler, and should behave similar to any other household fire.
