This has been asked to death, I'm sure, but meh, I'm annoyed and want some input.
My neighbors have 2 toy dogs that they put outdoors at night. They bark for like an hour after they are put out at night (around 9pm) and often start barking early in the morning (5:30 am -ish) nonstop until someone brings them inside (at least I think this is why they stop). I think the reason they bark is that there is still activity going on inside the house that they can see at night and in the morning and they bark to be let back inside. My son goes to bed around 9pm and I like to sleep past 5:30 am!
Is there anything I can realistically do to make this stop? I don't want to offend them and have a bad relationship with a neighbor. I'm also not a dog owner so I don't really know what amount of barking is just kinda to be expected.

non-iphone users: any thoughts (pros/cons, recommendations for or against) any of the following phones: Samsung ATIV Odyssey™, LG Lucid 2, LG Spectrum 2, Droid Razr M, Pantech Perception, Nokia Lumia 822, Pantech Marauder, HTC Rhyme, Casio Gz'One Commando, LG Lucid, LG Spectrum.
(A huge, random-looking assortment, equaling the "new" phones available to me in my budget, since my current Blackberry Curve, which I have never been in love with, is dying a fast ugly death.)
iphone users: worth getting the iphone 4 instead of all the above? Why/why not? I don't have the availability to buy a 4s or 5.
Hullo all! I am on the hunt for some gifs, but all I am getting are the crappy generic ones. Does anyone have any/know where I can find some gifs of people from movies/films/cartoons doing painting or drawing? Like Lily from How I Met Your Mother when she's in her smock or something from a kid's TV show. The sillier the better.
Sorry for the morbid topic, but out of curiosity - my dad and his wife co-own some property. He's quite a lot older than she is, so it's likely that he'll pass away before she does. If he dies without a will, does the property automatically become hers? And then when she dies her property would go to her kids, so I'll basically never get to own anything of my dad's?
If a neighborhood kid is sitting outside with you while your kid is playing with other kids, and the neighborhood kid (a teenager who has no kids herself, she just likes hanging outside with the adults) offers to watch your kid so he can stay outside while you cook dinner, would you consider that babysitting and pay her for it? I've never paid her to babysit before; I have asked her to babysit a couple times with the intention to pay her (she was unavailable both times), so I'm not sure if this counts or not.
I do things for her (I've recently taken her to a job fair, driven her to/picked her up from places) so is this maybe her way of trying to "pay back" the favor?
All that being said, should I buy a dehumidifier? They're just so freaking expensive, and I know my electric bill will skyrocket. Is it worth it to buy an Energy Star one? Does this model seem like a smart purchase?
I've just had an Amazon gift card fall into my lap, and I would like to buy some books with it. So what should I get?
Things I like: history, baseball, medicine, Judaica, and literature — I prefer my novels long with extensive plots as opposed to experiments in language (ie, Count of Monte Cristo and Les Mis instead of James Joyce).
