Looking for "Peggy Janes," a type of clothing

Hello--I was reading a book published in 1922. The young heroine found a trunk full of clothes, including three pairs of Peggy Janes (which would have made her Aunt Edie shriek with laughter). I cannot find any references to an article of clothing called a Peggy Jane. Can anyone help? Thank you very much.

Pest problem

Hello, can someone please help identify what the hell this bug is. They are throughout the apartment, literally showed up out of nowhere. I’m on my 33rd kill for the evening.

Eagleton Holly in shade

I would like to plant some hollies along a fence that is under larger trees so they will have filtered afternoon sun. Will they grow well?

Yellowing Small Oak Tree

I have a small Oak Tree with half yellow and half brown leaves. The brown leaves are dropping from the tree. There are also new buds all over the tree. I don't know what kind of oak it is but have included a picture of the leaves, acorn, and scaley looking amoebe from the trunk. An oak tree on one side of my house is turning yellow too but the ones across the street and on the other side of me are not. Do you know what might be wrong? It's March in Houston (Katy). Thanks.

Pecan tree has fungus growth & ants

This tree belongs to my neighbor but is near our property line. This tree has caused us to be on unfriendly terms due to damage to our vehicles and they refuse to remove it. Recently I noticed this fungal growth and a split in the trunk of the tree with ants crawling all over it. If you remove some of the bark, it looks like sawdust which is the third image. Do you think the tree is dying or just needs treatment? It hasn’t produced pecans in the last 2 years. It is within 10-12 feet from both homes and I’m really afraid it will fall. I don’t want to pay an arborist for an official report if this doesn’t mean anything and I can’t talk to the owners. Thanks in advance.

What are the white dots on Del Monte canned Asparagus?.

I called their 800 #. David told me the spots were rutin and that rutin was good for me. I looked up rutin and found out that rutin would be very good for me. However, I don't know that the white spots are rutin. They look like pin head size dots of white mold to me. Would the bioflavenoid rutin survive the canning process? I need someone with experience to tell me their opinion. We are told not to eat canned food in question but Del Monte only gave me the alternative "the white spots being good for me." In 72 years I have never had anything like that in a can.
