Figure A: Toaster had a spare TSAII/5%SB plate. This is 48h normal atmosphere growth of a sterile swab of Toaster's right nostril on 5.4.09. There are just 2 different colony morphologies, which seems too few. Maybe next time sneezing on the plate will be more efficacious.

Our family cultured our fingers before and after washing, to show our kids why we wash. It was amazing how many bacteria were still left under our fingernails, and in a minor cut. Nobody forgot this visual lesson easily.
