100th Anniversary of End of World War I


I visited the Zachary Taylor National Cemetery to pay respect to soldiers who served in World War I. The cemetery is located at 4701 Brownsboro Road in Louisville, Kentucky. A number of World War I veterans are buried at the cemetery including Ethel E. Ochsner (nurse), Dee Royalty (bugler), Lovell Marion Humphrey (1st Lt), and Felix H. Carrico (field artillery).

White Alligator at Louisville Zoo 2018


Here is a picture of an albino American alligator (Alligator mississippiensis). This alligator is named King Louie and resides in the Louisville Zoo. It was hatched and raised in Louisiana and then transferred to St. Augustine Alligator Farm in Florida. It was then acquired by the Louisville Zoo and the animal was named after the French King Louis XVI whom the city is named after.

Last time I visited this alligator was in April 2010. He is definitely a lot bigger. See this post http://poppular.blogspot.com/2010/04/white-alligator-at-louisville-zoo.html
