I'm lucky not to have any nearby neighbors. I have the radio on all the time, both indoors and out (mostly classical).
Speaking of dusting, I've had to triple my cleaning duties due to having a dog inside much of the time. She (Dot) shakes, rolls, and scratches (fleas?) a lot. I think it's a cause of my throat tickle and cough. Ugh.

Earplugs don't help, Joan, when you want to sleep and the basses interfere with your heart rhythm. But luckily it's only some five days a year. Normally I love music, and also silence. When I'm home alone I very often concentrate on things I've heard and enjoy them again in silence - music, sounds, poems.
I like the Da Vince text very much, Ian!
