   It appears that I [192.168.1.6] am the source of them?  Should I
   have 5353 open?  What is their significance?

5353 is used by Windows dynamic DNS. If you're not supporting dynamic
DNS on your local network, you can continue to drop/ignore the packets.
They're needed only by a DNS/DHCP server.
