Underwear as outerwearMadonna may have started it all several years ago when she began performing in bra tops and bustiers, but the idea of lingerie worn as outerwear has now taken on a life of its own. Bare little dresses cut like slips have become standard fare at the trendiest clubs and cocktail parties. Come spring, expect to XTC see even more lingerie-inspired party clothes -- dresses featuring built-in bras and delicate nylon lingerie lace edging necklines and shoulder straps.One of the most popular new fabric combinations also happens to be black lace layered over nude or blush-colored satin, a look hitherto more common in the boudoir than the ballroom.

A BALTIMORE college student who was heading off for a month's study in Cuba was mystified when a brochure arrived telling her to bring, among other necessities, some carbon paper. She might just as well have been told to sharpen her nibs. After her parents explained to her what carbon paper is, they set out to find some, heavy of heart at the prospect of what surely would be a frustrating and fruitless mission. But no! It was easy. You may not have given carbon paper much thought since the early years of the first Reagan administration, but that doesn't mean it's not still out there.

Here are safety tips for preserving from the Alltrista Corp., marketers of Ball brand home canning products:Jams, jellies, conserves, preserves, fruit butters and marmalades should be sealed with two-piece vacuum lids and then processed by water-bath canning. Do not seal with paraffin. Paraffin seals are not recommended by the USDA because they do not maintain a proper seal and are not heat processed, a necessary step that kills the microorganisms that could cause spoilage.Old-fashioned jars and commercial jars, such as those from commercially canned mayonnaise and jellies, should not be used for home canning.

Barbara S. Schubert of Ellicott City is seeking a recipe called Need'ems. She says: "I bought some at a craft and baked goods fair in Boothbay Harbor, Maine, and knew immediately it was the appropriate title for this scrumptiously delicious sweet treat. It was a square of semisweet chocolate with a creamy filling. Please help me locate this recipe as I now know my taste buds Need'em." Goldie Brody of Baltimore responded with a recipe "from a cookbook titled Damariscotta Kitchens -- Favorite Recipes From Historic Lincoln County, Maine."

At first glance, Osami Tanaka's wood, steel and paraffin sculptures, at Grimaldis, look very much like one another. But take a longer look. Actually, that's part of what they're about: taking a longer look.They are, superficially, rectangles of wood and paraffin joined by bands of steel. Some are horizontal, some vertical; some sit on steel pedestals, which constitute part of the work. So what else is there to see?Take two that look virtually identical (all are untitled) and spend a little time with them.

Give Dad an ignitable corn cob for Father's Day.Why, you ask, would Dad want one? Because it would make him feel like a '90s kind of guy. A guy who is concerned about the environment. A guy who wants to build a good fire for the barbecue.I know. I'm a dad and I worry about these things.I read about coated cobs and wanted some, so I quickly called the outfit that makes, or at least repackages, the corn cobs, Griffo Grill in Quincy, Ill. These cobs of Illinois -- feed corn dipped in food-grade paraffin -- are called Cob Lites and are being sold in food stores as fire starters for charcoal briquettes.
