WNL,

Thanks for the thoughts and the kind words. I have "unretired" to a degree, putting in some time in an occupation I am familiar with for just the reason you suggested...to buy while the prices are down. (Haven't been doing it long enough to really take advantage of anything yet. But will eventually be able to just nickel my portfolio instead of dimeing it too)
I just can't pull the trigger on taking 5 years of needed cash our now when the market is down. I actually would probably have to pay some capital gains taxes on some of what i sold.
I KNOW when the market comes back to some degree I will take money out as many of the Fools have suggested. that is a given. I really feel if I do it now I'll be throwing bad money after good.
I am NOT getting out of the market, which was a thought that entered my mind, I must admit. I'm holding, buying when I can and not going to worry about it.
thanks again to all for solid advice.
Mr. Flash
