	There are some questions that need to be asked before
one shoots back:
* What is the source of the hostility?
* Can it be resolved?
	If it's something as simple as mowing the lawn, get the
lawn mowed.
	You don't want to be in the position of the parents who
had a kid who drew on a neighbor's driveway with chalk, and in
response the neighbor put the kids name and phone out as
a phone sex line on the net.
	Have you ever talked directly with the neighbor about
and asked what the problem was?
