One of my dogs snores, and it's relaxing to me for some reason. Of course, if it was my husband snoring then I'd be poking and shaking his shoulder to make him stop.

The dog's snore is relaxing for sure. It's always reassuring to know she is there. The humans can take care of themselves, but if the dog gets shut in the garage or locked out accidentally, it's trouble. If I don't know she's in bed (she burrows under the top cover), I will often wait until I hear her snort, then I can sleep properly.

It was pouring rain last night...hitting my roof, and my metal carport which is right next to my bedroom, and I slept like a baby.

I like freesound. Here's one I downloaded a few weeks ago. It sounds best with headphones.

I can't sleep with a fan on. I can't sleep with any noise, really. My husband snores and I wake up. Last night my brother and his family stayed over and their 1 year old woke up hollering in their room at 4 am. I haven't slept since.

reading any type of book to the kids will usually knock me right out, any time of day. Invariably the wander into whatever room my wife is in and tell her "Daddy fell asleep" epsecially irksome to her when it is bedtime and they should be the ones asleep.

And this would put me to sleep too:

I've used my fan for years and years, but with the electricity costs going up, my dad bought me a white noise machine. I unplugged my fan and put it in storage until summer, and have been using the machine on "rain" since.

(Don't tell him, the machine doesn't work nearly as well, but since he lets me live here for free, I'm happy to help out as much as I can.)

I got to see Segovia in the late 70s or early 80s (don't remember exactly). The gal I was dating at the time was a big fan and I took her to see him. Not something I would have done on my own, but he made some beautiful music.

I must have been napping when you wrote that. Somehow I always manage to "catch up." I had a friend who told me that a person does not actually "catch up" on sleep. That your body doesn't actually know how much sleep you need or don't need. I still say mine underestimates its needs.
