           IRREVOCABLE CREDIT SHELTER TRUST AGREEMENT
                         OF JOE GOODGUY

     Trust agreement and declaration made on April 12, 1999, by
Mr. Joe Goodguy, of 22 High Falls Avenue, Naples, Collier County,
Florida, referred to as the trustor, and Ms. Sally Jones, an
accountant and the sister-in-law of the trustor, referred to as
the trustee.

     This trust agreement and declaration is governed by Florida
law and made on the following conditions:

                           SECTION ONE

                      PROPERTY TRANSFERRED

     Trustor is about to convey, or cause to be conveyed, to
trustee,   the   following-described  property:   the   trustor’s
residence at 22 High Falls Avenue, the furnishings within that
residence, the trustor’s late wife’s jewelry, the trustor’s car,
the trustor’s bank accounts, the trustor’s mutual funds, the
trustor’s pension plan, and the trustor’s life insurance.

     It is the intention of trustor to convey to the trust estate
all   of   the   real   property  and   the    personal  property
above-described, to hold all of the same property (all of which
property is sometimes referred to in this instrument as the trust
estate) in trust, however, for the use and purposes and on the
terms as set forth in this trust agreement. Trustor intends to
pass all of the same property to this trust free from federal
estate and gift taxes and Florida inheritance tax by reason of
his unified credit, or any other credit existing at the time of
this transfer.   Trustor intends and agrees to pay any transfer
taxes due that are in excess of these credits.

                           SECTION TWO

                      INVESTMENT OF INCOME

     When the trustee has taken title to the property, she shall
take possession of all of the trust estate and shall invest and
reinvest the income from the trust estate in the name of trustee
in her complete discretion, with power to vary the investment or
investments of the trust estate from time to time.

that she must pay all real estate taxes due and other expenses of
the residence if she remains after both children marry or after
both otherwise leave home permanently, and the residence shall
not be sold during her residence.     If Ms. Fairfellow dies or

trustee, and the successor trustee shall act as the sole trustee
