This week on "Glee" it's all about makeovers. At the beginning of the episode, Blaine professes this is his year and I couldn't be happier. It's about time we get more Blaine. So he signs up for every school club imaginable while singing "Everybody Wants to Rule the World" and even signs up to run against Brittany for school president. Seriously, more guys should wear bow ties. I'm going to start a petition. Across the country, Kurt has an internship interview at Vogue.com. Senior editor Isabelle Wright aka " Vogue's rogue," played by Sarah Jessica Parker, interviews Kurt.

For some thoroughbreds at Pimlico Race Course on Saturday, it had been mere months since their last race. Now, as the ex-racehorses trotted onto the track, they were asked by riders not to run like the wind, but do something entirely different - circle barrels, leap hurdles or prance precisely in dressage, an Olympic equestrian sport. The horses at the second annual Thoroughbred Makeover: A Marketplace & National Symposium resisted the urge to take off when they heard the boom of an announcer's voice.

Well, it's not exactly Pottery Barn or Ethan Allen, but I guess aircraft interior design is a whole different ball of Minwax. Southwest Airlines today announced it is redesigning the interior of its fleet to "enhance customer comfort, improve fleet efficiency, and give back to the environment. " The whole comfort part is difficult to fathom since the new interior will actually allow for additional seats - capacity on the airline's 737-700s will increase from 137 seats to 143 seats.

When Spencer and Katie Perry moved into their four-bedroom Colonial home in Ellicott City this year, they finally had the space they wanted for a home office. But there was one problem: the only furniture they had for the room was a folding plastic table Spencer had bought in college, a television and TV stand, and a large leather office chair. They had no art for the walls, no cabinets for their papers and no way to control the tangle of computer cords that were playthings for their kitten, Gadget.

Can someone remind the bubble teams that this is the time to start impressing the NCAA tournament selection committee? So many on-the-fence teams are wasting opportunities that talk of a tournament expansion makes me cringe. These wart-filled teams need to learn how to apply a little cover-up and blush at the end of the season. This means you, Rhode Island and Charlotte. Each lost three in a row recently. Connecticut, meanwhile, looks like it's in the makeover chair with victories at Villanova and Monday against West Virginia.

Baltimore County has given its North Point Library a $300,000 makeover, refurbishing the one-story building's entrance with a paved walkway, landscaping, benches and bicycle racks as well as canopies and additional lighting. Contractors gave exterior walls fresh coats of paint and added more handicapped parking. "The improvements are grand," said Steven Hargrove, assistant manager of the library on Merritt Boulevard in Dundalk. "There is a lot more green now and a lot less concrete. We have trees, gardens and grass surrounding us."

STATE SCHOOLS superintendent Nancy Grasmick is still picking the managers who will perform the much-anticipated makeover of Baltimore's special education program. But city school officials have gone back to federal court, asking that the state spell out some details of its own plan -- specifically, how will city and state managers work together, what is the exit strategy and who is going to pay for the makeover? Crucial to the state's makeover plan, including the placement of super-managers in eight separate departments that deal with special ed, is more focused oversight, more technical assistance, helping the city's special ed managers identify what's working and what's not and then implementing needed reforms.

DURBAN, South Africa — The World Cup semifinal Wednesday between Spain and Germany is a rematch of the last European Championship title game. But that's where the similarities end — at least on the German side. "Two years later for us there are many changes while the Spaniards are similar," German coach Joachim Loew said Tuesday. Loew took over the German team after the last World Cup, where Germany finished third. "We have made progress in the style of football we play and the results we get," he said.

Conceding that the Village of Cross Keys is in need of "investment," the owner of the residential, retail and office complex is planning a mostly cosmetic makeover that would revamp the gatehouse, freshen the courtyard of the shopping center, and turn a so-called "tennis barn" on the grounds into a fitness center. "We buy properties that we want to improve," Joe Press, a senior vice president for Ashkenazy Acquisition Corp., told the Roland Park Civic League on Thursday.

The Savage branch of the Howard County Public Library is once again set to become an open book after an extensive renovation designed to modernize the aging facility and highlight a science and technology theme.

" After a year-and-a-half closure, the branch will celebrate a grand opening July 22. Patrons have used a nearby temporary location during the $6.1 million county-funded revamp.

This week another piece of the redevelopment of downtown Towson falls into place as a 90,000-square-foot, 15-screen Cinemark theater ushers in its first moviegoers Thursday. Baltimore County Executive Kevin Kamenetz said Towson Square and the theater are part of an estimated $800 million in private investment that is revitalizing Towson, including the new 52,000-square-foot LA Fitness facility that replaced the old eight-screen AMC theater in Towson Commons. The $20 million theater - the anchor of the 150,00-square-foot Towson Square development - is less than a quarter-mile from one of the region's largest malls, Towson Town Center.

The Downtown Partnership of Baltimore is looking for money to fund the replacement of the deteriorating McKeldin Plaza fountain with trees and a grassy park by 2016. Downtown Partnership President Kirby Fowler said there is consensus among the city and other downtown stakeholders on designs, which show a trapezoid of green where the 1981 multi-level fountain currently stands.  The estimated cost of demolition and creation of the park, which would include trees and a “basic water feature” is about $3.5 million, he said.

The Ravens' top decision makers will meet later this week at owner Steve Bisciotti's Florida home and the team's struggling offense will surely dominate the conversation. But the focus, according to Bisciotti and general manager Ozzie Newsome, will be on adding to an offense that ranked 29th in the NFL this year, not overhauling it. "When you have a short window of failure that comes out of the blue, the key is not to make wholesale changes," Bisciotti said Wednesday at the annual State of the Ravens address at the Under Armour Performance Center.

I used Russell Street to get to BWI this fall for a vacation. I made a mental note of the progress of the new Horseshoe Casino when I left. About 14 days later, the construction seemed to have doubled. Certainly the construction of this casino ranks as one of the highlights of change in Baltimore this past year. Some well-established neighborhoods saw substantial, but subtle advances in 2013. Not as obvious as the casino, an aged commercial core of Fells Point at Broadway, between Aliceanna and Fleet streets, emerged this year.

Ryan Donaldson, an ardent football fan, spent most Sundays in the basement of his Eldersburg home. There, in an unfinished, dimly lit space used for storage, he would watch NFL games on seven mismatched older-model televisions, all tuned to different channels. "I'd invite friends over, and we'd sit on an old couch," says Donaldson, 34, a Redskins fan whose wife, Jessica, favors the Ravens. "I wanted to see as many games as possible. " Donaldson still tunes in to a variety of games, but now he watches them on flat-screen TVs. Five of them.

Governor Jack, a former racehorse, cantered smoothly and landed multiple jumps in front of the crowd at Pimlico Race Course , as if he had been an event horse his entire life. Elissa Ogburn, his 14-year-old trainer and rider, knew how far he had come. "He was still a little pushy, bobbing his head around," said Ogburn, a freshman at Old Mill High School. "He's kind of gotten more comfortable with me. I know how to calm him down. " Ogburn was one of 26 trainers who showed off racehorses prepared for second careers in the Thoroughbred Makeover & National Symposium Saturday and Sunday.

With each cute baby Crystal Neilson delivered, she found her body more unattractive. Her breasts sagged a little more. The skin on her stomach stretched out like a deflated balloon. “There was stuff falling out all over the place,” said the 34-year-old real estate broker. After four kids, Neilson had enough of camouflaging her flab and flaws with circulation-binding Spanx. In March, Neilson decided to say goodbye to her post-baby body. She had her breasts lifted and increased two cup sizes, her stomach smoothed and flattened with a tummy tuck and her love handles shaped and slimmed with liposuction.
