  4. Accounting and legal decreased during fiscal 2011 to $43,969 from$79,846 in fiscal 2010.  Legal fees were high in 2010 because of the litigation related to the Simon Property, and the legal fees incurred on investigation of new properties during the fiscal year; and,

  1.  Accounting and legal fees decreased by $35,877 to $43,969 as compared to $79,846 during fiscal 2010. The higher legal fees in 2010 resulted from litigation on the Simon Property and legal fees incurred on investigation on new properties;

  5. Promotional materials and trade show expenses increased by $29,466 due to attendance at additional trade shows during fiscal 2011;
  6. Insurance expense increased, during fiscal 2011, to $20,436 as compared to $10,901 in fiscal 2010, because of a new general liability policy acquired to insure the Company’s work on the Nivloc, Nevada property; and,
