[IP] Using Advanced Diabetes Supply

I too use ADS, and they are totally awesome.  Recently, when I ordered 
my strips, Tim offered to send me the Autolet Impression lancet device.  
Several months ago, I had tried to get this from a local pharmacy and, 
after weeks of trying, they realized they couldn't get it.  I couldn't 
believe that just like that, he said he would send me one.  Also, the 
other day I called because I needed some alcohol prep pads.  Not a huge 
emergency or need, but the next day they were here!  Tim, and the rest 
of the crew at ADS are outstanding!
