Carol Channing, the raspy-voiced, saucer-eyed, wide-smiling actress who played lead roles in the original Broadway musical productions of "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes" and "Hello, Dolly!" and delivered an Oscar-nominated performance in the 1967 movie musical "Thoroughly Modern Millie," died Jan. 15 at her home in Rancho Mirage, California. She was 97. Her publicist, B. Harlan Boll, announced the death and said the cause was two strokes in the last year.

When I was a kid, my grandmother kept a clean metal spoon in the refrigerator. If her allergies would act up - or whenever she felt like her under-eyes were puffy - she would pull the cold spoon out and roll the rounded back beneath her eyes, for 30 seconds each.

One tunnel is about 50 feet long, unfinished, and stretches across two countries. It starts along the drainage channels that a U.S. border town shares with Mexico, and abruptly ends underneath a parking lot in Arizona. Another one runs about 80 feet, also unfinished.
