    Howdy All,
    Who knew? Western Somoa and Tuvalu (.ws and .tv). I had wondered but hadn’t found the time to find out what they meant. Thanks for answering that question.

    Another benefit of reviewing archived shows: finding nuggets of hidden knowledge and getting the breaking headlines on what is now taken for granted, e.g., the microbiome (Dr. Schaechter said it would no doubt be important.).

    Wonderful to hear the back stories of what is now considered common knowledge and ancient history in microbiology.

    My appreciation and best to all.
