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.
