For the life of me I can't understand why you did what you did, especially if they were AAA and perhaps even some of them were "insured". For income, I've been using Reits. Bought many of them at 10% yields a few years ago. Average Reit yield is now down to about 6% because of price appreciation (>30% last year). Reits are generally overvalued presently (see excellent article in this week's Barrons), but you could consider dollar cost averaging a percentage of your muni proceeds, or wait for a long overdue selloff.
