RULE 12b-25 (b) and (c)
If the subject report could not be filed without unreasonable effort or expense and the registrant seeks relief pursuant to Rule 12b-25(b), the following should be completed. (Check box if appropriate.)
The reasons described in reasonable detail in Part III of this form could not be eliminated without unreasonable effort or expense;
The subject annual report, semi-annual report, transition report on Form 10-K, 10-KSB, 20-F, 11-K or Form N-SAR, or portion thereof will be filed on or before the 15th calendar day following the prescribed due date; or the subject quarterly report or transition report on Form 10-Q, 10-QSB or portion thereof will be filed on or before the fifth calendar day following the prescribed due date; and

State below in reasonable detail the reasons why Form 10-K, 10-KSB, 11-K, 20-F, 10-Q, 10-QSB, N-SAR or the transition report portion thereof could not be filed within the prescribed time period:
The Registrant was unable to complete the preparation of its financial statements by March 31, 2005 and requires additional time to prepare and file its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the period ended December 31, 2004. The Registrant expects to file its Annual Report on Form 10-K no later than April 15, 2005, the 15th calendar day following the prescribed due date.
(1) Name and telephone number of person to contact in regard to this notification
James L. Smith, III
|(Name)||(Area code)||(Telephone Number)|
(2) Have all other periodic reports required under Section 13 or 15(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 or Section 30 of the Investment Company Act of 1940 during the preceding 12 months or for such shorter period that the registrant was required to file such report(s) been filed? If the answer is no, identify report(s).
x Yes o No
(3) Is it anticipated that any significant change in results of operations from the corresponding period for the last fiscal year will be reflected by the earnings statements to be included in the subject report or portion thereof?
x Yes o No
If so, attach an explanation of the anticipated change, both narratively and quantitatively, and, if appropriate, state the reasons why a reasonable estimate of the results cannot be made.
The Company previously reported a significantly greater net loss for the nine-month period ended September 30, 2004 than the net loss reported for the full fiscal year 2003. The Company anticipates a significantly greater loss in the twelve-month period ended December 31, 2004 compared to the twelve-month period ended December 31, 2003 and the increase in net loss for the twelve-month period may be proportionately greater than the increase in net loss reported for the first nine months of 2004. However, a reasonable estimate of the net loss for the twelve-month period ended December 31, 2004 cannot be made until the Company completes preparation of its financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2004.
