— DEAR READERS: Telemarketers are a pain in the neck! To help stop them, the Federal Trade Commission has a service called the do not call registry.

To call and get your phone number on this list, call from the number you’d like to register. If you have multiple phonelines (land line or cell line), call from each one; dial (888) 382-1222.

If you want to register your phone number online, go todonotcall.gov.

The Do Not Call Registry cannot stop calls from places you have given permission to call, places you do business with, tax-exempt nonprofit organizations or calls that are not commercial or do not include unsolicited advertisements.

DEAR READERS: Here are a few letters and e-mails that came in about what to do with old keys:

Darlene in Wisconsin wrote: “As a fourth-grade teacher, I took our box of keys and used them as a creative-writing activity. Each child selected a key, then imagined what kind of door the key would open and what was behind it.”

Kim in Texas wrote: “Tie a collection to the bottom of an old chandelier instead of crystal drops. Use as an accent on a gift-wrapped package. Use ribbon or twine to create napkin rings.

Murray in California wrote: “Buy a cheap picture frame with glass and set the keys on red or black felt, and it becomes a great wall hanging.”

DEAR HELOISE: When I come across a funny cartoon in the comics section, I clip it out and tape it to my refrigerator door. This helps friends and family who may not feel good to have a better day. They get a chance to laugh, something they may not have done that day.

  • Ellen in Louisiana

DEAR HELOISE: When my parents went to California, I made them a large-size paper with my name, phone number and address, and my sister’s as well. I taped it on the dashboard of their car. If in an accident, it is very helpful. Cell phones could be lost in an accident, and who do you call then?

  • Bailey in San Antonio

DEAR HELOISE: When moving, put your pets’ toys and bedding where they can be found before you start unpacking. Their toys will have their scent on them and make them feel at home.
