Yes.  (I do.)

A good idea is to keep your production environment 2-3 days behind the
latest updates in case of unforeseen 'gotchas'; and run today's upgrades
on a totally separate machine -- e.g. a laptop, or a quarantine machine
-- until you're sure they're not going to blow anything up.
Then move the upgrades to the production environment.

This works well for me.
