Strange noise on my monitored fios phone line [telecom]

Subject: Strange noise on my monitored fios phone line

I recently switched to fios. Verizon turned on voice mail which I did not want and so they turned it off. No more stutter dialtone. But there is a sound that I hear on the monitored phone line, about once / hr. It sounds like what may turn on a MESSAGE WAITING lamp. Any idea what this is? Are they polling the lines? Here's the sound, and TIA.

If you listen to it at 33 1/3, it says "Happy Thanksgiving"!
