Help me make a Memory Slide Show/Book for my Mother's Memorial

What is the best way to make an online slide show that I can later turn into a book? My mother passed away this spring and this upcoming weekend is her memorial. Over the last 2 months people have been sending me photos of and text about my mother.

Booked a summer camp venue in Ohio for my wedding next year -- yay!

Anyone know of an easy way we could whip something up (or use a service) online for people to check off how many spots and how many nights, and then pay us back? [more inside]

Can You Recommend a DVD Digitizing Service?

I want to digitize my DVD collection so I can declutter the MANY binders of discs I have. I have read past questions on how to DIY this but I think I'd prefer to pay a service to do this for me. I am not tech-savvy AT ALL but all I'm looking for is to be able to play my movies on my macbook and TV (have a fairly new but non-smart TV with amazon firestick,do I need any other apps or devices to do this?) Can you recommend a company? TIA!

Bluetooth paired with car: can I enable music but disable phone?

I get daily spam calls that I use an app (Hiya) to kill, but sometimes the app lets them ring once before killing them. The car interrupts music to notify me, even though I have the phone ringer on silent. I'd like to disable the phone from sending calls to the car, while still retaining the music/podcasting. Can I do that?
