I don't think you mentioned your investing style

We're very aggressive, mainly index mutual funds in our 401k's with a little variety of funds thrown in if they seem to beat the market. I use municipal bond funds for emergency funds, but otherwise stay away from bonds. I plan on sticking with stock funds since that's what has worked the best in the past.

I stayed the course during the 2000-2002 meltdown which, as you can see in my previous post, has paid off in the following years.

I buy individual stocks here and there with some ups and downs. I've also done quite well with stock screens (Keystone100 & PEG26), though this is a fairly small portion of our portfolio.
