I once had to test a man in Ireland who was rather reluctant, but after a good dinner with red wine, followed by a glass or two of port, he agreed. Those little toothbrushes I sent in were bright red. While I am sure that FTDNA's admonishments about no eating or drinking after midnight (or whatever) are wise, but in this case his DNA came through just fine.
