    Love your work but your comments section would seem to need a review. A comment that I made last year is still at the top of the section.

    Keep up the great work.

        Doug, You need a new tagline. There’s nothing good to get into in the sample closet anymore. 🙂
        A lot of offices don’t even keep a sample closet because of the paperwork and red tape.

        In the “olden” days it was different. benzos, narcs and alike. When I noticed the narcs were disappearing I ditched some in an unlocked hiding place. Disappeared there too. Found out years later that a physician’s
        husband was swiping drugs during off hours.

        Nowadays, it’s not worth keeping ’em around anymore and the “really” controlled stuff is not available
        anyways. I don’t miss it and the red tape.
