If the fed keeps raising interest rates a money market fund might be the place to be. You might consider puting 20% into a euro (or other currency) cd from www.everbank.com just incase the US$ takes a fall.

Simple mutual fund possibilities
1) 100% pimco total return

2) 50% vanguard lehman Index, 50% vanguard total market index

3) 100% vanguard star asset allocation fund

FWIW I own the following etfs GIM TEI CMK FAX FCO LDF BZF ISL CEE

Both bobbrinker.com and fundx.com give mutual fund advice which have been good in the past.
