Researchers at ancestry.com estimate that in the 1930s, people took approximately 1 billion photographs. That number grew to about 3 billion in the 1960s and 86 billion by the year 2000 after digital cameras became readily available in the 1990s. Today, they say the number has skyrocketed to more than 380 billion. Facebook reports that its users have uploaded more than 250 billion photos, and estimates that the site receives 350 million new photos each day.

Q I live in Pine Bluff and have a beautiful, taller than 60-foot white oak (beautiful shape) in my front yard that provides substantial shade on the south side of the house. It has mushrooms growing in the soil against the base of the tree, and one or two actually on the base. I would appreciate your opinion as to whether it is too late to save this tree; do you think that the disease, if it is Armillaria fungi, has it already caused root rot and rot on the inside of the tree?

Dear Otus, All I hear about lately is this so-called kissing bug that's come up from Texas. What's all the fuss about and why isn't anybody alarmed over the giant Colombian beetles that have taken over South Arkansas?All I hear about lately is this so-called kissing bug that's come up from Texas.

DEAR TOM AND RAY: My stepson recently discovered something dangling under his 1997 Ford Escort wagon. He took it to some mechanics, who looked underneath and found it to be the rear sway bar. Their solution: Remove the sway bar, because it's not really necessary. Not knowing any better, he took their advice. This does not sound right to me. What do you think?

Trying to maneuver through the rules of the design world can sometimes feel like walking across a minefield. We want to categorize every product as traditional, contemporary, rustic, lodge, industrial, modern or French country. We are so concerned about those labels that we often second-guess our design decisions.

"The very best medium to preserve an image is still paper," says Mike McCoy of Bedford Camera in Little Rock, "Clouds can go down. You can lose integrity in a hard drive or a thumb drive. Even CDs or DVDs only have a life expectancy of 20 to 25 years."

Rich, regal and oh-so-luxurious, gold is back with a vengeance in home decor. My love light never dimmed for this precious metal and its ability to warm up a room and imbue it with style. Depending upon your passion for gold, you can go high luxe by washing your room in it. Or you can add just a glint here and there to thread in a tiny touch of luster. Here are the top five ways we're decorating with gold.

DEAR READER: Many of you have plants in your home or at work. They look beautiful, plus they freshen the air and provide some green to brighten a day. But if you have pets, some plants can be trouble and even fatal! Here is a very short list of plants that can be toxic to dogs and cats:
