Thompson: Tired of crooked picture frames? This tip will fix that

Here's a great tip on how to keep pictures on your walls level. On the back side of the picture, insert straight pins into the four corners. Clip off the heads of the pins leaving about a quarter inch sticking out. Put the picture on the wall and position it. When the picture is level, push the pins into the drywall. No more re-leveling the picture!

Thompson: Beware of bogus tips from the Internet

I want to start today's column by thanking all of you who have been sending me tips. Without your assistance, it would be very difficult to write this column each week. If a tip I receive is not intuitively obvious, I'll test it for legitimacy. Probably half of the tips I get turn out to be bogus. Here are two that I recently received that fall into that category.

Thompson: One simple call can save you phone time

Do you hate getting calls where the caller ID shows, "Private Number" or "Unknown?" Odds are it's either a sales call or something worse. Here's a neat trick to block these types of calls. Simply dial *77 on your phone. The service will automatically block them. To turn the service off, simply dial *87. Check with your phone service provider to see if there's a charge. (Whatever the charge, it's worth it!)
