 Hi Karen,

 Boy it sure is nice to get some noise (inaudible) 
happening on this list <g>. It was too quiet for a while.
I wouldn't characterize your disturbance as 'silly'. Our 
group has been in touch with a couple of people whose 
lives have been messed up for a period because of wind 
chimes. This just reinforces what I always remind people 
about noise: noise doesn't have to be loud to affect your 
health. Moderate to quiet levels of noise can wreak havoc 
with your stress levels.
