Been touch 'n go for a while, there - for my account, that is. My ISP's been

Just as the word "ain't" can be found in the dictionary nowadays, and
"flammable" has slowly replaced "inflammable" because most people associate
the prefix "in-" with opposition, "infusoria" is the more widely used. I

Not to worry - although "all infusoria live in infusions", not "all
infusions harbor infusoria". You'd have a difficult time finding live ones
in your freshly-brewed tea, for instance, but I wouldn't want to bet on the
same after it's sat at room temperature for a few days (*hours* if you're
searching for bacteria). More than you ever wanted to know, probably  ;-)

that such cultures need be neither difficult nor "septic". It's also listed
on my old Live Food page. But as Jerry pointed out when he first contacted
me, Carolina has restructured their site and he wasn't able to locate the
new URL. I at least knew what I was looking for, so I tracked it down for

For those still interested, the new location is
