The piece gave more additional information than I received in the hospital. Most bathrooms have a toothbrush holder on one side of the sink and a glass holder on the other side. Make sure your tooth brush holder is on the far side from the toilet bowl. You should also keep paper cups in a dispenser type holder. And instead of just stepping back quickly, train your family to close the cover before flushing.
We always put the toilet lid down when we flush the toilet for that very reason

The gutter cleaning guy is here and he is doing such a thorough job, I am very pleased, and he is such a nice person too, well worth the $150.00

I don't know if it's true, but I was told that if you put the lid down, you just get the aerosol of water and microbes when you lift the lid later.

We have an enthusiastic toilet at one of my schools. You flush with your foot and have to immediately step back 10 ft. It shoots up like a geyser and sprays all over the seat. Thankfully it's in the basement and not often used.

If everything they say is bad really WAS that bad we'd all be dead already, right? Or at least all chronically ill. A few germs help the immune system.

I am about to either bang my head on the desk or pour myself a pint glass of red wine. I have been listening to my baseball game since 7:05 PM. Since then I have washed a couple windows, fixed and cleaned up from dinner, played on the computer, done some mending...and the game has been rain delayed twice. Almost 2 hours of wait time. We were losing big, then coming back slowly but getting close until the second rain delay. When they came back in the top of the 8th the Indians (home team) were down by only two. Ack! Our sure-handed center fielder just tipped a caught ball over the fence to give the opponent a 2-run home run! Down by four with 1 inning to go. Can they come back? Hope I'm still sober by then. *

*FWIW, all references to heavy drinking are just in jest. Yes I like a glass of wine but I do exercise caution and certainly don't drink and drive.
