      Dear Annie:

I live next door to people who leave their windows open and have the television blaring most of the night, while their children play loud video games. They also run some sort of compressor all day long that's right next to our patio1.
This home was once our retreat to get away from the hustle2 and bustle3 of the world outside, and it has turned into noise pollution central. While our neighbors seem like nice enough people, hearing noise when I'm trying to sleep or getting blasted with sound when sitting on the patio is starting to wear on my nerves. I did put a water fountain out back, and that seems to cut down a bit on the surrounding noise, but I can't keep it on all night. Any ideas? - Matt in Michigan
Dear Matt:
First, try talking to your neighbors. Ask nicely if they would shut their windows or lower the volume on their entertainment systems at night. They may not realize how much they are disturbing you. If that doesn't help, try earplugs or other sources of white noise, such as fans. There also may be noise ordinances4 in your area that they are violating, in which case you should notify the authorities.
