    Insanely frugal?!? Really I’m insane? (Perhaps I could be if I watched the markets all day long. First down 20% from the peak and then shooting up 5% in a day!)

    Thanks for the link,

    I am cash poor house reach. I do not have any cash flow. Nor the banks are willing to lend me money. To stand on my feet I need $20,000 to pay off my loan and restart everything. Any ideas How I can do this.

    @mark: have you talked about doing a refinance on the mortgage to consolidate all the debt? Any bank or mortgage broker should be able to help you out.

    This assumes you have enough equity in your house to do this.
