A really difficult one this.............these low level irritants can so
easily escalate to all out war.
See what makes your neighbors tick.what type of people are they.........pig
ignorant ...or reasonable types just affronted by your respnse to thier
Hopefully this will give you some insight into the best way
forward..........The peace and love idea is good..........but beware of
escalating with the wrong type of people.....it can end up with blood and
guts and make life total hell
Good luck with the outcome. ..... perhaps a loud cd of pan pipes left on
loud everytime you go out .....no dont go there:) Or hypnotism to make you
love the sound of wind chimes?
