    Nice work Bill!!!

    Your a lot heavier in international then me (I am about 20% intl and 80% US). Your also heavy in Latin America. Looks like a lot of risk in emerging economies, but as long as you and your wife are comfortable, that's all that matters.

    Instead of an EF, ST, LT funds, you might want to lump all tha into EF for now. You may alos want to stop your IRA contributions to pay down the CC before they readjust. But it looks like your on the right path. 2,000 pay down in march, not too shabby.

    See, the way things are going, the US looks very unstable with all these interest rate crisis. Right now i'm looking into another 2000-3000 paydown this month on the cc. I been following the economy in brazil/argentina and they are the next world powers. they just discovered another oil field in the coast and that is going to bring in alot of new jobs. I'll adjust the brackets as things move forward to get 35% intl, 30% large cap, and 30% midcap/small caps and 5% in cash.

    EF funds is my next goal is to combine into one as will probably cut the funding to $35 a week to pay down some more cc.

    i hope to be under 25k by december.

    Er, yeah, I was just going to say something about the internationals.... Ordinarily, I would say there is something seriously wrong with this picture....

    But then again, it is true that Latin America is an emerging power.... So, I'll take a look into that.
