    And – negotiate on the phone with an important buyer/seller, work through a problem in a relationship, take advantage of a teaching moment or effectively discipline a child, fine tune the wording of an important email or letter, sort through a problem with your computer, enjoy romance, praise a dear friend, cherish a two-day visit from someone you haven’t seen in a long time, deal with news of a critical health problem, deal with the hundredth frustration doing something very difficult that you have to sort out in a timely way, have a meaningful moment of praise or prayer, deal with the moss on your roof or painting that must be completed before it starts raining again, enjoy the last few days of enjoyment a swimming pool, learn the software program you must know before the end of the month, finish an important school assignment, console someone that just learned of a devastating loss, plan your vacation of a life-time, repair the car, hang shutters, trim trees, practice an instrument, get the sleep you need to avoid getting sick, participate in stress reducing activities to be better able to deal with the Growler stress the following week, write a poem…

    There will be even less of the above when twice the number of jets are flying and they are flying like they did at the beginning of last year. Use the quiet to focus on contacting Congress so decision-makers know what is going on:

    When it is quiet, the noise is easy to forget. But once the additional jets are here, they will probably be here for good.

    Thanks, that’s a very good idea. We do appreciate the people who chose of their own volition to sign up for this job. They knew what they were signing up for, not that that makes the separation easier. We on the ground should be sent ear protection from them in return. In our case, we don’t receive any protection from the navy, or lifelong compensation from the health problems caused by the noise like people that wanted to do this in the navy get. I would think equal protection and compensation would be fair?
