MARY TODD LINCOLN: With a shabby White House, Mary Todd Lincoln took to decorating -- When Abraham and Mary Lincoln moved into the White House in March of 1861, there wasn’t enough matching china to have a dinner for even a dozen guests. Kathryn Rem/ The State Journal-Register (Ill.)

INTERIORS: Spring clean as part of Thanksgiving prep -- It is certainly a nice holiday to look forward to, but if you are the host or hostess of the big Thanksgiving dinner, you might want to start getting the house clean and in good order for the guests. Let's explore some ideas on how to "spring clean" in the fall. Rosemary Sadez Friedmann/ Scripps Howard News Service

YARDSMART: Top four cool-season annuals -- For many lucky Americans in the South and West, fall doesn't signal the end of gardening. Instead, it ushers in a whole new season for cool-season annuals. Maureen Gilmer/Scripps Howard News Service

AGED TO PERFECTION: Techniques for antiquing wood -- "Aged," "antiqued," "distressed" - these are some of the adjectives that people use to describe how they envision the finish on their cabinets or furniture. From an artist's perspective, these are very vague terms. They cover a full spectrum of different techniques that all fall under the generalized category of "antiquing." There is a big difference between a little bit of color in the corners and truly "aged." By Kass Wilson, Hometalk.com

DONATING CLOTHES: Michael Kryzanek: Donating clothes is not always charity -- I guess the best answer to this international charity conundrum is to continue to give clothing to the world’s poor but also to do some due diligence and find a charity that desperately needs U.S. dollars to further their good works. Patriot Ledger (Mass.)

FLEXIBLE FITNESS: Female athletes at higher risk for ACL injury -- Research has shown that athletic women’s muscle recruitment patterns differ from men’s and that they have different muscle imbalances than men. Both of these factors can lead to an increased risk of injury, especially to the knee, and specifically to the anterior cruciate ligament, or ACL. Nicole Tomasino/ MetroWest Daily News (Mass.)

REV. ED SCHNEIDER: The fallacy of ‘modern’ Christianity -- You know what I love about “modern” Christianity? It’s so easy to be a part of it. There are almost no rules to follow, no guilt to experience and certainly no process of personal discovery regarding the fundamental flaws within the human condition. Oak Ridger (Tenn.)

GARY BROWN: Thankful to eat turkey by the ton -- When you sit down to the table, the doctor suggests we try to think about whether we’re hungry enough to start eating at the time the Thanksgiving dinner starts, rather than waiting, I’m guessing, until some later time of leftovers. Personally, I’d start eating at the time your hostess says you’d better be ready to start eating.

LOST IN SUBURBIA: For whom the flu bell tolls -- Whenever I get sick, it always seems to happen one of two ways. Either, a) I feel it coming on for a couple of days and believe I might actually be able to fight it off before it finally rears up and knocks me off my feet or, b) I wake up feeling completely fine and by the end of the day I am sick as a dog. By Tracy Beckerman, GHNS

MICHELLE TEHEUX: What’s important? What’s newsworthy? -- “I don’t believe that,” another mom said. “It would be in the news if it were true.” I couldn’t convince her that neither the front page of her local paper nor the nightly news keeps an ongoing tally of all the things that are wrong in the world. It’s not our job to tell you what’s important. It’s our job to bring you what is new. Pekin Daily Times (Ill.)

GREG ALLEN: That lost thought of 'Thanks!' -- I'm convinced you can never say "thanks" enough, because people wanna know they're appreciated -- it's in our DNA. Yet it seems that with the busyness of life the thought’s lost its polish, slipping our minds into the abyss. By Greg Allen, GHNS
