FOR VALUE RECEIVED, the Company promises to pay to Ron Krochak located at the address listed below (the “Holder”) the principal sum of Forty Thousand Dollars (US $40,000.00), on or prior to the Maturity Date and to pay interest to the Holder on the principal sum at a flat rate of 10% of the principal amount of the Note (20% per annum).  Interest shall accrue daily commencing on the Original Issuance Date until payment in full of the principal sum, together with all accrued and unpaid interest, has been made.  If at any time after the Original Issuance Date an Event of Default has occurred, the Holder shall be entitled to remedies under Section 2 hereof. This is not a Public Offering and is being offered to accredited investors only.

This Note is subject to the following additional provisions:

Section 1.
Events of Default and Remedies.

I.           “Event of Default,” when used herein, means any one of the following events (whatever the reason and whether any such event shall be voluntary or involuntary or effected by operation of law or pursuant to any judgment, decree or order of any court, or any order, rule or regulation of any administrative or governmental body):

  (a)           any default in the payment of the principal of or interest on this Note as and when the same shall become due and payable either at the Maturity Date, by acceleration, conversion, or otherwise;


  (b)           the Company shall fail to observe or perform any other covenant, agreement or warranty contained in, or otherwise commit any breach of, this Note, and such failure or breach shall not have been remedied within fifteen (15) Business Days of its receipt of notice of such failure or breach;

  (c)           the Company shall commence a voluntary case under the United States Bankruptcy Code as now or hereafter in effect or any successor thereto (the “Bankruptcy Code”); or an involuntary case is commenced against the Company under the Bankruptcy Code and the petition is not controverted within thirty (30) days, or is not dismissed within sixty (60) days, after commencement of the case; or a “custodian” (as defined in the Bankruptcy Code) is appointed for, or takes charge of, all or any substantial part of the property of the Company or the Company commences any other proceeding under any reorganization, arrangement, adjustment of debt, relief of debtors, dissolution, insolvency or liquidation or similar law of any jurisdiction whether now or hereafter in effect relating to the Company or there is commenced against the Company any such proceeding which remains un-dismissed for a period of sixty (60) days; or the Company is adjudicated insolvent or bankrupt; or any order of relief or other order approving any such case or proceeding is entered; or the Company suffers any appointment of any custodian or the like for it or any substantial part of its property which continues un-discharged or un-stayed for a period of thirty (30) days; or the Company makes a general assignment for the benefit of creditors; or the Company shall fail to pay, or shall state that it is unable to pay, or shall be unable to pay, its debts generally as they become due; or the Company shall call a meeting of its creditors with a view to arranging a composition or adjustment of its debts; or the Company shall by any act or failure to act indicate its consent to, approval of or acquiescence in any of the foregoing; or any corporate or other action is taken by the Company for the purpose of effecting any of the foregoing;

II.          Remedies    If any Event of Default occurs and continues, then the Holder may, by notice to the Company, accelerate all of the payments due under this Note by declaring all amounts so due under this Note, whereupon the same shall become immediately due and payable without presentment, demand, protest or other notice of any kind, all of which are waived by the Company, notwithstanding anything contained herein to the contrary, and the Holder may immediately and without expiration of any grace period enforce any and all of its rights and remedies hereunder and all other remedies available to it under applicable law.  Such declaration may be rescinded and annulled by the Holder at any time prior to payment hereunder.  No such rescission or annulment shall affect any subsequent Event of Default or impair any right consequent thereon.  This shall include, but not be limited to the right to temporary, preliminary and permanent injunctive relief without the requirement of posting any bond or undertaking.

  (a)           The Holder may thereupon proceed to protect and enforce its rights either by suit in equity and/or by action at law or by other appropriate proceedings whether for the specific performance (to the extent permitted by law) of any covenant or agreement contained in this Note or in aid of the exercise of any power granted in this Note, and proceed to enforce the payment of this Note. The Company agrees to pay reasonable costs of collection incurred by Holder and its counsel upon a default and failure of the Company to pay the Note in a timely manner.

  (b)           Except as expressly provided for herein, the Company specifically (i) waives all rights it may have (A) to notice of nonpayment, notice of default, demand, presentment, protest and notice of protest with respect to any of the obligations hereunder or the shares of Common Stock and (B) notice of acceptance hereof or of any other action taken in reliance hereon, notice and opportunity to be heard before the exercise by the Holder of the remedies of self-help, set-off, or other summary procedures and all other demands and notices of any type or description except for cure periods; and (ii) releases the Holder, its officers, directors, agents, employees and attorneys from all claims for loss or damage caused by any act or failure to act on the part of the Holder, its officers, attorneys, agents, directors and employees except for gross negligence or willful misconduct.

  (c)           As a non-exclusive remedy, upon the occurrence of an Event of Default, the Holder may convert the remaining principal amount of the Notes and accrued interest thereon at the Conversion Price upon giving a Notice of Conversion to the Company.  Except as otherwise provided herein, the Company shall not have the right to object to the conversion and it shall release the shares of Common Stock so elected.

Section 2.

(a)           Upon Maturity, the unpaid principal amount of this Note plus all accrued interest thereon shall be convertible into shares of Common Stock at $0.004 per share (the “Conversion Price”), at the option of the Holder, in whole or in part. Shares issued upon conversion shall become free trading stock as promulgated by the rules and regulations of the U. S. Securities and Exchange Commission. The date on which such conversion is to be effected (the “Conversion Date”). The Holder shall effect conversions by surrendering the Note to be converted to the Company, together with the form of notice attached hereto as Exhibit A (“Notice of Conversion”).  The Notice of Conversion shall specify the amount of principal and accrued interest to be converted. The Notice of Conversion, once given, shall be irrevocable.  If, at Maturity, the Holder is converting less than all of the principal and interest amounts represented by this Note, the Company shall deliver to the Holder a cash payment equal to the amount of principal and interest, which is not converted at Maturity.  Upon conversion in full of the Note or upon payment in full on or before the Maturity Date, the Purchaser shall return the Note to the Company for cancellation.  Upon maturity of this Note, the debt owed by the Company is considered to comply with the Securities Act of 1933 and Holder, upon conversion, can seek and render a legal opinion from qualified legal counsel to have the restrictions lifted from the security.

(b)           The Company shall use reasonable efforts to deliver to the Holder not later than ten (10) Business Days after the Conversion Date, (i) a certificate or certificates representing the number of shares of Common Stock being acquired upon the conversion of this Note, and once this Note so converted in part shall have been surrendered to the Company, the Company shall deliver to the Holder a Note in the principal amount, if any, of this Note not then converted; provided, however, that the Company shall not be obligated to issue certificates evidencing the shares of Common Stock issuable upon conversion of this Note until this Note is either delivered for conversion to the Company or the Holder notifies the Company that this Note has been lost, stolen or destroyed and provides an affidavit of loss and an agreement reasonably acceptable to the Company indemnifying the Company from any loss incurred by it in connection with such loss, theft or destruction.

(c)            No fractional shares of Common Stock shall be issuable upon a conversion hereunder and the number of shares to be issued shall be rounded up or down to the nearest whole share.

(d)           The issuance of a certificate or certificates for shares of Common Stock upon conversion of this Note shall be made without charge to the Holder for any documentary stamp or similar taxes that may be payable in respect of the issuance or delivery of such certificate, provided that the Company shall not be required to pay any tax that may be payable in respect of any transfer involved in the issuance and delivery of any such certificate upon conversion in a name other than that of the Holder and the Company shall not be required to issue or deliver such certificates unless or until the person or persons requesting the issuance thereof shall have paid to the Company the amount of such tax or shall have established to the satisfaction of the Company that such tax has been paid.

(e)           The portion of the principal amount and accrued but unpaid interest on the Note, if any, which is converted into Common Stock shall be canceled upon conversion.

(f)            The Notice of Conversion (Exhibit A) shall be given to the Company ten (10) days prior to Maturity and shall be effected on the Maturity Date no later than 5:00 p.m. Nevada time on such Day.  In the event that the Notice of Conversion is deemed given to the Company after 5:00 p.m. Nevada time on any Business Day or at any time on a day that is not a Business Day, Notice of Conversion will be deemed given on the following Business Day.

Section 3.                 Absolute Payment Obligation;   Except as expressly provided herein, no provision of this Note shall alter or impair the obligation of the Company, which is absolute and unconditional, to pay the principal of, and interest on, this Note at the time, place, and rate, and in the coin or currency, herein prescribed.  This Note is a direct obligation of the Company.  This Note ranks pari passu with all other Notes now or hereafter issued under the terms set forth herein.  The Company represents that it shall not issue more than $250,000 of Convertible Notes inclusive of this Note during the period from the Issuance Date to the Maturity Date and that if any subsequent Note under this provision is issued with more favorable terms, then this Note shall be imbued with such more favorable terms retroactive to the issuance Date. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Company reserves the right to enter into a variety of funding agreements at any time during the period of this Note with terms and conditions dictated by market conditions and the capital needs of the Company.

Section 4.           Loss, Theft, Mutilation or Destruction.  If this Note shall be mutilated, lost, stolen or destroyed, the Company shall execute and deliver, in exchange and substitution for and upon cancellation of a mutilated Note, or in lieu of or in substitution for a lost, stolen or destroyed Note, a new Note for the principal amount of this Note so mutilated, lost, stolen or destroyed but only upon receipt of an affidavit of such loss, theft or destruction of such Note, and, if requested by the Company, an agreement to indemnify the Company in form reasonably acceptable to the Company.

Section 5.          Payment Dates.  Whenever any payment or other obligation hereunder shall be due on a day other than a Business Day, such payment shall be made on the next following Business Day.

Section 6.          Notices.  All notices, requests and other communications hereunder must be in writing and will be deemed to have been duly given only if delivered personally against written receipt, by facsimile transmission against facsimile confirmation, or mailed by recognized overnight courier prepaid, to the parties at the following addresses:
