Here are a few observations from Oscar's red carpet, surely one of Earth's most fascinating (not to mention fashionable) places. The award for for first celebrity to arrive goes to Kristen Chenoweth, one of the hosts of the Oscar pre-show (it was fun to watch her be so flabbergasted that Anne Hathaway actually guessed that the mystery object she was so zealously guarding was Dorothy's ruby slippers from 'The Wizard of Oz")

We like to think of our home as a safe haven where we can rest, unwind and enjoy times with friends and family. But there's danger lurking where you least expect it. More than half a million Marylanders suffered injuries that required hospital treatment in 2010, the most recent year statistics are available. Although health officials don't keep count of where those people were hurt, doctors and rescue workers say many injuries happen at home. However, the good news is many home dangers can be avoided.

YOU WALK ON IT; you sleep on it; your kids play on it; almost everyone has some. It has a limited life span, so you have most likely bought some, but did you know what you were buying? And when you look at different ones, they all look alike -- so how can you tell what you are getting? What we're talking about is carpet. There are hundreds of names and grades to choose from, and a myriad of colors and patterns. A big complaint Ron gets from clients who are trying to choose carpet is that they can't get enough information from suppliers to make an informed decision.

Dan Gauger bends over a piece of white carpet on his workbench like a sculptor studying a block of virgin white marble before the first mallet blow.An electric clipper whirs in his hand. He cuts his first groove through the thick pile. The clipped nap disappears up a vacuum hose.Another stroke and another, trimming here, smoothing there. Soon a flower takes shape as the 43-year-old Hereford resident carefully sculpts a three-dimensional bas relief into the pile.Although fancy carpeting is his bread and butter, Mr. Gauger's personal favorites are decorative pieces for wall hangings, such as a full-length picture of Confucius and an intricate design copied from a door panel at the Vatican.

One of the home improvement industry's hottest growth markets these days is right underfoot. Flooring products have exploded into a dizzying array of textures, colors, sizes and price ranges, encompassing everything from do-it-yourself laminates to high-end Travertine tiles.

"Flooring products have taken a quantum leap forward," said Al Stewart, editor of National Floor Trends magazine, which tracks the industry.

On Monday night, Baltimore did the traditional red carpet one better, with a purple carpet laid out at the Modell Performing Arts Center at the Lyric for the VIP premiere screening of the official NFL "Super Bowl XLVII Champions: 2012 Baltimore Ravens" DVD. The scene beforehand had some of its own highlights. Joe Flacco, accompanied by wife Dana, was the first to arrive on the purple carpet, although not much of the carpet itself was visible thanks to the many media types who immediately swamped the Super Bowl MVP. Ray Ricebrought along 1-year-old daughter Rayven, who posed for the paparazzi like a pro, modeling a cute purple floral frock.

Hardwood -- Earth's oldest flooring material next to dirt -- has resurfaced as the trendiest thing to tread on in American homes. Although carpet continues to dominate flooring, hardwood has seen a surge of interest during the past decade. From the pages of consumer home magazines to the aisles of home improvement centers, hardwood is being promoted as the material of the moment. "From all of our anecdotal evidence, we know that [the popularity of] hardwood flooring is growing," said Gopal Ahluwalia, vice president for research with the National Association of Home Builders in Washington.

Jessica Long will tell you: After capturing even more Paralympic gold in London, she couldn't wait to get back to Baltimore for a table heavy with steamed crabs and a pint of Ben & Jerry's. But these days, Long's reality is a touch more glamorous. You can still find the swimmer at the movies in White Marsh, shopping at the Towson Town Center, getting wet at the Merritt Athletic Club. But Long's just as likely to be walking a red carpet somewhere in couture threads, juggling interview requests and considering lucrative opportunities.
