If you've never made a pillow before, The Pillow Book (Chronicle Books, $24.95), by Shannon Okey with photos by Gemma Comas, is a good place to start. For one thing, it contains basic advice about fabrics and pillow accents: nothing too precious if you have kids; nothing dry-clean-only if you anticipate stains; nothing too tempting to cats (tassels, fringe and the like); no mixing materials with different washing requirements. Plus, the book offers a solid foundation in those core steps of sewing prep: pre-wash, pre-shrink and pre-press.

After her kidney transplant almost four year ago, Sue Lackovic, a learning support teacher at Downingtown Junior High School, said one thing that eased the pain after the surgery was a pillow. "They are called lap pillows, and by pressing one across my stomach, it really helped to reduce the pain," Lackovic said. The experience gave Lackovic an idea that caught the attention of the National Kidney Foundation of the Delaware Valley in Philadelphia. "Three years ago, I started asking ninth-grade students in our school's Family and Consumer Science class to help make lap pillows for transplant patients in Philadelphia hospitals," she said.

Mary Jane McCarty has seen her designs in print, but never on the big screen. So, when she was tipped off that they might be glimpsed in the recent documentary The September Issue, she had to see for herself. In a scene in Anna Wintour's Long Island home, an array of her vintage-fabric pillows are on the Vogue editor's sofa getting their close-up. Wintour buys McCarty's wares at New York's Treillage for her home and for friends. She refers to McCarty, whom she has never met, as "the pillow lady.

Shopping for pillows is not as simple as it used to be. Time was, there were flat pillows and fat pillows. Feather-filled or foam. You'd pay $10 to $20 and go home. Today you're dreaming if you want to get out of the store that fast (or that cheaply). You can get a headache just weighing the options. "Healthier sleep" is the buzz phrase. Do you want a pillow that "responds to body pressure"? That "relates to your temperature"? That offers "continuous air circulation"? (Can you even figure out what that means?

SUMMER IS on the way and that's a reason to celebrate. Here are some "Good Things" to help you do it. Custom cushions Summertime calls for a playful approach to decorating. So mix - don't match - fabrics to create reversible pillows that you won't find on anyone else's sofa. A quick flip is all it takes to change your look, and you can do it as often as you change your mind. Just a yard each of three fabrics can make three 16-inch and three 18-inch pillows. Use fabrics in similar weights; pair them in different combinations.

"Do you have to lug that thing along?" my husband will ask in tones-not-dulcet. He already knows the answer, of course, but I still provide it as we begin the argument that precedes every trip we take. Yes, I do have to lug along "that thing" - the 20-inch box fan that goes whither I go. It even has its own "suitcase," a weathered carton that fits its contours to perfection . . . but still provokes dismay and dire warnings about breakage and nonliability from every airline clerk we encounter.

Q: I've been seeing this nice girl but here's my problem. She told me she wants me to choke and hit her during sex. I don't even know how to respond to something like that. Mia: Sicko alert. Just because she wants to be abused, it doesn't mean you have to oblige. Breath play is dangerous. You really need to be trained in CPR before even thinking about indulging in that l kind of kink. My advice is to find a woman who wants to be touched gently rather than strangled half to death.

ATLANTIC CITY - Inside the Trump Taj Mahal last week, "Ivana's" china was selling at half off. The gold-rimmed plates at the Trump Exchange at the top of the escalator were marked down from $25 apiece to $12.50. A Donald Trump quote - "I like thinking big. You have to think anyway so why not think big?" - still hung on a wall, above an oversize black-and-white portrait of Trump from back in the day. Those remnants of a time in the late 1980s and early 1990s when Atlantic City was "Trump City" could disappear from the public eye if the Taj's new owner, billionaire investor Carl Icahn, closes the four-times-bankrupt casino after Labor Day, as announced last week.

Q: I love how throw pillows make a house look lived in and comfortable, and how they mix in colors. My husband, on the other hand, hates them and always throws them on the floor before he sits down. Am I using too many? What is the rule? Can you give me some other tips, please? - B.B. A: As your husband is demonstrating, the beauty of throw pillows is that you can throw them around any way you want. Beyond just adding color and texture to your room, you can prop yourself up, support your back, or hold your head up. I've seen them used as armrests, or for napping.

STUART SCOTT, the talented and entertaining anchor on ESPN's "SportsCenter," had a way with words. His famous catchphrases included: "Boo-Yah!" "As cool as the other side of the pillow. " "Just call him butter cuz he's on a roll. " Yesterday, Scott died at 49 after a lengthy battle with cancer. And fittingly, there were words. Words of love. Words of consolation. President Obama, actor Samuel L. Jackson, and former NBA star Michael Jordan were among those sharing their thoughts.

FIRST, THERE was the 1 percent, the evil elite who would just as soon release the hounds as release their tax returns. Then there was the 99 percent, rabble-rousers who occupied the streets even as Newt Gingrich said they should occupy tubs. Next came the 47 percent, slackers who had the gall to need help from time to time. Well, there's a new group that's worse than all of them. It hasn't been written about in the papers or on the Internet. It doesn't even have its own reality show, but it poses a greater threat than all the other groups combined.
