Illinois woman chooses Taco Bell for 101st birthday, is 'hooked' on Nacho Fries
In May, two teenagers took their prom photos at a Pennsylvania Taco Bell. A pregnant Kentucky woman is tracking her baby's growth with Taco Bell menu items. And last year, a Florida couple took some wedding photos inside the Mexican-inspired fast-food chain.
"Whether it's as a backdrop to senior grad photos, a wedding venue or a birthday destination from 1 to 101, Taco Bell's role in our fan's biggest life-moments show the power of the brand in culture and the importance of our Team Members' role in the community," Taco Bell spokesman Matt Prince said in a statement.

Invasive plant a toxic 'horror'
Penn State Extension. “Never touch it.”
Ford was talking about giant hogweed, an invasive plant species found in Pennsylvania, including locally.
The plant, which is toxic to humans, has been the focal point of numerous news articles — like PennLive’s “Horror from the wild” — social media posts and backyard discussions over the past days and weeks.
And though the plant has been present in Pennsylvania for decades, Ford said the renewed attention to giant hogweed could be a trend with positive results.
Pretty but dangerous
Giant hogweed is “pretty,” said Shannon Powers, a spokeswoman with the state Department of Agriculture.
“They are attractive plants,” she said, but they are equally harmful.
Stretching up to 10 feet or taller, giant hogweed can be identified by its clusters of small white flowers, its hollow stalks covered by coarse hairs and purplish spots and its green, jagged leaves.
“It’s a huge plant. It’s kind of unmistakable,” Powers said.
Giant hogweed looks like a larger version of Queen-Anne’s Lace — or the equally toxic poison hemlock, she said.
It is an invasive species, meaning the plant has an origin outside of the United States — likely in Asia.
Powers speculated that the plant probably was transported into the country intentionally by Eastern settlers, who know how to carefully handle the weed.
However, she stressed that only experts should handle or removed growths of giant hogweed.
The plant contains an oil that can result in serious injuries if it comes in contact with skin, Powers said.

Burn-causing invasive plant spotted in the Lehigh Valley
It's been spotted along the bank of the Little Lehigh Creek near Allentown's Cedar Beach Park and several other places in the region.
Pennsylvania residents, however, need not worry about brushing against the plant. Simply touching the giant hogweed's leaves or flowers won't cause blisters, scars or blindness, Niesenbaum said. It's the sap, he said, that people need to be vigilant of.
The sap contains furanocoumarins, chemical compounds that when exposed to ultraviolet radiation cause crosslinking within human DNA. This phenomenon, he said, is what kills your cells and results in "what is essentially" a severe burn. Whereas plants like poison can cause dermatitis or a rash, giant hogweed can cause an actual burn, making it deadlier than other plants in its family.
The plant's toxic sap, Niesenbaum said, is what makes removal so difficult. Whereas pesky weeds in patio cracks can be removed by hand or with a garden tool, people need to be more careful when dealing with giant hogweed.
"If I'm in there really grabbing at that giant hogweed and ripping at it, I want to make sure I have gloves and long sleeves and long pants and maybe even a cover on my face," Niesenbaum said. "Once you start tearing a plant open, that's where problems arise."
An invasive force
Niesenbaum said he considers giant hogweed one of the most "troubling" invasive plants in the area. Its behavior mirrors that of most other invasive species, he said.
Pennsylvania, for example, was once largely covered by an intact forest. Logging and land development, he said, altered not only the physical appearance of the state, but also its ecological makeup.
"There was no way these invasive plants could get a foothold because they don't thrive in the shade and they'd be outcompeted by the native plants," Niesenbaum said. "But we essentially fragmented all of our forest and cut down the trees that surrounded our rivers. Under the highlighted conditions, which removed competition, [invasive species] can basically colonize and proliferate without being controlled."
In developed areas, like sites along railroad beds and canal paths along rivers and state parks, he said his team often sees ecosystems composed of 90 percent non-native species. Though the research is still being conducte... Jul 26, 2018
Floral fireworks and a sparkler for your garden
The flower looks like “the bombs bursting in air” finale of the 1812 Overture — absent the Boston Pops. An application to the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture for a pyrotechnics license seems unnecessary.
Anna Pavord, in her book “Bulbs,”— shows Hardiness Zones 4-10 for Allium schubertii Sparkler. I’m hedging my bets with Allium cristophii, Z5-8. It’s shorter and the geodesic domes shaped by the hundreds of tiny flowers are smaller. But with a little imagination they will pass as Sparklers too.
Allium bulbs are available through the internet and like many other bulbs, will be for sale at local stores and greenhouses in the fall.
Internet bulb merchants are offering incentives to pay now and wait for shipment in August or September. Fall’s planting time and I’ve reserved a spot in my garden right behind the peonies. Pavord says mass is important, so I’ve ordered the minimum twenty bulbs each. In my garden, forty of anything equates to a mass.
Here’s my strategy: Ornamental onions aren’t fussy about soil, but they do require good drainage. The spot behind the peonies is on a slope and gets full sun. Alliums put all their strength into growing spectacular seed heads, so the leaves start dying before the flower reaches its full potential.
Even as they die the leaves are gathering energy to store in the bulb. I’m not going to cut the lea...
