Subject:  Allocation advice needed... Date:  6/24/2001  1:58 PM

I need some advice from all the "Fools" out there.
Here is the situation: My father (age 62) recently sold a portion of the family business (a ranch). The sale is structured with Dad as the mortgage holder (7 year term). The mortgage will generate a monthly payment. He retains ownership (under an S-Corp) of the remaining portion of the ranch, which will be leased out, generating yearly payments.
Dad currently has no outstanding debt, no retirement plan (aside from a small IRA), and no interests in any other businesses.

My questions are:
How would you invest the monthly and yearly payments (asset allocation)?
Should he be converting the remaining land holdings out of an S-Corp into a trust or some other financial vehicle?
