Things have been fairly calm around here, but in the past week I've had three violations of do-not-call. One from our old and continuing enemy, "Credit Card Services" or some variation of that name. Another from a roofing company that identified itself as here in town, but they aren't in the local phone book. So they are either new or fly-by-night or both. And today one from an outfit in Branson MO wanting me to take a vacation package. They used the name of Branson Vacationland. The scuttlebutt on the web seems to be that Branson Vacationland is a legitimate visitors' bureau if you call them, but that some other outfits are using their name to make calls violating the do-not-call list. Before do-not-call I used to get an awful lot of calls from Branson companies; this is the first one in several years.
