Folks thank you ALL for all your advise and opinions offered. My situation is actually quite simple. I have NO debt, aside from my mortgage. And I have about 11 1/2 years till I'm eligible to retire, and guess what, I plan to take it just as soon as I can (I wanna go play for a change). So, I figure if I continue to DRIP into some good stocks (INTC, PAYX, MDT, GE) for instance. Then, I can just skim off the top of one of those annually to pay down the mortgage of 8.25% that I have. I've always believed in being debt free-it's synonymous to BEING free! OR, as an alternative, once the house is paid off, I may rent it out and that'll pay for most of the monthly note on a better second house (and keep the first one as a paid off rental property). Any more opinions, anyone?
Regards,
Eddie
