For anyone who has ever lived in a multi-dwelling apartment of condo type structure, you already know that there are laws that can protect you from some forms of sensory assault! A neighbor who decides that taking up the drums as a late night practice will hear it from his or her neighbors in short order. And, should that person persist, they will often finds themselves tossed out onto the street! Excessive sound, of any form, that assails the ears of a neighbor will be curtailed by management and that makes a lot of sense. Likewise, individuals living in so-call beehive buildings are not permitted to make or produce offensive odors that might be carried on the breeze into another person’s domicile.

One of the nice things about managing a bunch of balcony veggies in pots is that there just ain’t too much work to do, but the rewards are really nice.

I had that happen to me, as a young man, when I put two dogs into pot of boiling water and then went into my bedroom and fell asleep! When I awoke, I thought for a second that I had gone blind! Everything was totally white. Needless to say, the smell was

The problems begin, however, when the same people go out in front to smoke and said smoke and the associated odors waif over to a neighbors window where fairly quickly their place also smells like an ashtray. (A bad situation made worse as there is now emerging evidence that second hand smoke can be just as deadly if inhaled into otherwise virgin lungs)!As more and more people quit, every day, this problem will eventually become much less severe.
