            formal dining room was not furnished.  The kitchen had a dinette                           
            set and matching bar stools of white rattan with pale blue                                 
            cushions; the table top was glass.  The refrigerator was a large                           
            side-by-side model with ice and water dispenser in the door.  The                          
            kitchen was wallpapered, as were at least two of the bathrooms.                            
            Some of the rooms had fabric window treatments that matched the                            
            decor of the room.  There was a kidney-shaped swimming pool in                             
            the backyard.5

            Connecticut National Bank in the amount of $45,921.30.  The                                
            proceeds were used to pay off the loan on the Burlington house                             
            borrowed from Hartford National Bank & Trust Co. on April 23,

            1989.  United Bank & Trust Co. released its attachment of the                              
            Burlington house on March 27, 1989.

            property to Deborah by quitclaim deed.  Petitioners sold the                               
            Mandarin house in late 1992.
