    This is kind of a reprise of one of the earliest posts here at what was then Homeschool & Other Education Stuff.

    The Do Not Call registry has been a boon to homeschooling families, ending the annoying and disruptive calls throughout the day. Unfortunately, many of those numbers registered in the heady days of 2002 2003 are about to “expire” and will again be available to the scum telemarketers. You’ll need to go here to re-register your number.

    And, while you’re there, you might want to register your cellphone numbers, too. In theory, telemarketers can’t call any cellphone number as that’s a violation of federal law. And, in theory, bumblebees can’t fly.

    I’m not sure if we have a no-call list up here in Canada. Doesn’t matter though, ever since we switched to an internet phone we haven’t had one call of that kind.

    This blog used to be called “HOES”?

    Sort of. I always wrote it H&OES. But we were “hoesers” not “hoes.” 🙂
