Yes, he hurt me several times, but that was before I started reading the fool. Now I know that when
I cash in my 403(b) and my TSA I will be doing the investing myself. What I am interested in is,
generally speaking, where? I have an IRA with the Wiseman which is fairly heavy in bonds. I will
have Soc Sec and another retirement also. Should I be in growth? Should I be heavier in bonds?
Should I do the Foolish Four (I believe that is my choice at this time). How far should I go in any of
these? I will have about $125K to invest and need some comments from others. Any comments from
anyone would be appreciated.

Probably lighten up on the bonds.
