Country legend Dolly Parton is selling up in California – she currently has three state properties on the market.

The “Jolene” hitmaker recently placed her West Hollywood bungalow up for sale with an asking price of almost $1.4 million, and now her former homes in Solvang and rustic Idyllwild are also on the market.

Sources tell property news website RealEstalker.com that Parton’s compound in the faux-Danish village of Solvang has been listed for $950,000, while her mountain retreat in Idyllwild is up for grabs at just under $600,000.

Records show Dolly bought the Solvang property in 2007 for just over $1 million. She purchased the Idyllwild cottage in 2000 for $235,000.

The singer’s headquarters remain in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, while she and her husband Carl Dean also own a mansion and cottage retreat in Nashville, Tennessee.

Rice replaces ice in India bucket challenge

An Indian school boy eats a midday meal provided free at a government school in Hyderabad, India, Thursday, Sept. 5, 2013. India has offered free midday school meals since the 1960s in an effort to persuade poor parents to send their children to school, a program that reaches some 120 million children. The country now plans to subsidize wheat, rice and cereals for some 800 million people under a $20 billion scheme to cut malnutrition and ease poverty.

The famous "ice bucket" challenge is inspiring thousands of Indians to follow suit, but with a twist - they are replacing ice with rice to help the country's hungry people.
