We have all of the windows open in the house today. So as I'm sitting here I can hear the slight breeze coming through the windows. I also hear my neighbor mowing his lawn, again. I also hear some church bells ringing from a nearby church. What do you hear right now?

Hi Shar, Right now I hear a lot of things, a lot of different sounds. They are harmoniously inharmonious but I am listening to the voice of my inner soul over a pending decision. When I listen to anything I do not hear anything else though they constantly hit my ear.

What an intriguing discussion topic! Well I can hear a train passing by, and just a little earlier I actually heard an aeroplane flying over. Oh, just a heard a bird!

That's a lot of noise. Do the trains and planes bother you when you are trying to sleep?

No they are not very loud luckily, otherwise it would be a problem

My daughter snipping with a scissors, my other daughter wiggling around trying to get comfy for her nap & the tv going.

Glad your daughter takes a nap for you. Maybe you'll get some quiet time.

I am at the library and it is usually quieter than it is right now, but it is mid day where most of the people are here and also taking lunch, meeting friends, etc. I hear lots of chatter thoughout, plus the loud roaring of the iar conditioning system, a baby crying and the elevator button from time to time.

It should be quiet at the library. Our library can get quite noisy at times when there are out of control kids.

I hear a noisy motorbiker who continues going to and fro for half an hour _ I don't what he wants to demonstrate, but he should hurry _

I can hear my kids across the house arguing(What else is new there.)and the sound of my mother's dogs barking. Can't wait to get back home. Barking dogs when you are trying to sleep are the worst. I did not sleep too well the last 2 nights.

I agree with you about the dogs. We have a neighbor two doors down with a dog that barks for hours at a time in the middle of night. I think he just lets the dog out and forgets about him.

Hi, When all your listening organs including the skin are open they hear everything that come to their contact. Right now I am hearing or listening to some music on my computer but at the same time can hear the chirping of the bird and other people talking around along with the typing sound on my key board.

I like to hear the birds chirping - as long as I'm not trying to sleep.

That sounds like some pretty peaceful sounds. I had some windows open earlier. I heard the birds chirping and also the breeze too. I also heard the waterfall in my water garden. It was so nice to hear that after listening to my neighbor's generator running 24/7 for over a week now. He does not pay his electric bill or work so he has to run the generator. Grrrr.. He just fired it up again.

I love the sound of a waterfall. Only problem is that it makes me think I have to go to the bathroom.

all i hear right now is the noise my ceiling fan makes all the time. I don't even have the tv or radio on. I can also hear my computer running & that's about it.

Luckily I don't hear the cars drive by since my computer is downstairs. Unless of course it was a loud truck or motorcyle.

Nothing but, my baby geese chirping! All of my children are gone and my husband and I have the house all to ourselves. It's so nice. The windows are shut so I don't hear my neighbors and the goslings aren't very loud so it's very quiet!

I can hear my daughter humming while she comes her hair and Spongebob on the TV. Also, the soft gentle sounds of my wife sleeping and me typing of course.

Who lives in a pineapple under the sea? Spongebob Square Pants! I feel like I hear that all day long.

At this moment I'm hearing a really interesting broadcast on the BBC World Service. I listen to the BBC, which is streamed by a local radio station, every night. I love hearing the various broadcasts and documentaries, and a lot of my friends in the area love hearing the BBC too.
