TELEMARKETERS are a pain to most of us, and the National Do Not Call list seems to be a
directory to them that says "CALL HERE"!  Some of them are getting clever - there's the female
who after a brief pause says something to the effect of "oh, excuse me, I dropped my headset" ,
then begins her pitch.  You try to interrupt, but you can't, because -- guess what!  It's a robocall!  
You can only get the idea if the robot calls again.  Then there's the one that says, "I sure have
had trouble reaching you...."  -- another robot.  The phone companies say that you cannot use
your "call block" on these numbers, only individual registered numbers.  You can have them
traced using *57, but they you have to record the number, time and date and report it to your
phone company.  The best bet id just check your caller ID before you answer the phone.  Here's
one that came by e-mail:

2017.  Includes digital photography, watercolors/acrylics, pencil, ink, incorporating text and mixed media work with
options for plein air painting and comfort of a group activity room (floor to ceiling vista views). For 7 days/6 nights you

Tour takes you where she painted from the local, magnificent area scenery. Visit the O’Keeffe studio/home on tour.  
Space is limited to 16 participants. Bring materials you love to work with (or try something new) and join us! The
workshop fee is $550. Room and board at the Ranch are not included and are their rates—which has recently been
redesigned to provide the ultimate discount for those sharing a room, so bring a friend! Unclaimed rooms will be
released 25 August. Currently there are 12 spaces left!

Come and see for yourself why Georgia O’Keeffe loved Ghost Ranch! Last year each participant received $300+ in art
merchandise in their welcome bag…and door prizes exceeded $800!
