I only found one company out of a few in Australia that does online free samples that are suitable.<br><br><img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_tongue.png" alt="tongue" longdesc="24"> I pestered all my friends into letting me get samples sent to their house from that one company as I wanted more <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_razz.gif" alt="Razz" longdesc="9"><br><br>It seems now the "free samples" avenue for me is now exhausted <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_silent.png" alt="silent" longdesc="25">
