Leeuwenhoek had stolen and peeped into the fantastic sub-visible world of little things, creatures that had lived, had bred, had battled, had died, completely hidden from and unknown to all men from the beginning of time. Beasts these were of a kind that ravaged and annihilated whole races of men ten million times larger than they were themselves. Beings these were, more terrible than fire-spitting dragons or hydra-headed monsters. They were silent assassins that murdered babies in warm cradles and kings in sheltered places. It was this invisible, insignificant, but implacable-and sometimes friendly- world Leeuwenhoek had looked into for the first time of all men of all countries. ~Microbe Hunters

Yellow Staphloccocus aureus on Blood agar

For Krysta and Nicole's micro presentation today, they decided to made some enticements for the class and Health Science faculty members. Our cookies don't look as good as some of the cookies you can find on the internet, but we are neither bakers, nor cake decorators. The agar plates are the Pillsbury per-cut, just-add-to-baking-sheet, ready-in-8-minutes cookies from walmart, and the icing is made from icing sugar, water and food colouring. 

We did a pretty swell job, if I do say so myself!

Darn good and sure of it,
