Lauren Davenport is working as a conservation intern at the Franklin Conservation Department. She was assigned to write a piece on invasive species for the Franklin newsletter, but was kind enough to share some thoughts with Buntology readers first.

“I’m not trying to bore you guys here, but I thought a little environmental science info might spice up the site, and maybe I can share some of my knowledge. I think it’s interesting, I hope you do too!”

Invasive species are rapidly spreading across the world. Invasive species are plants, animals and insects that aren’t native to the area and have a negative effect on the habitat. They invade the area economically, environmentally and ecologically.

These days, more than ever before, I’m hearing people say they want to get tattoos. That’s cool I guess. I’m about as accepting as the next acceptor, but I often wonder how so many people can spontaneously give up a plot of their body they probably can’t get back.

Farrah Fawcett dies at the young age of 62


Farrah Fawcett, most famous for her role as one of Charlie’s Angels, died earlier this morning after a long battle with cancer.

She recently filmed a diary on her fight against anal cancer, which I watched only last month.

I never knew too much about her, only that her feathered blonde hair was all the rage in the 1970s, and that famous poster of her was on everyone’s wall. To read more about Farrah’s life you can click here.
