All of these assumptions seem to assume you will not (or cannot) reduce your standard of living for a period of time. Also I think most of us on this board should have at least 1/3 to 1/2 of your retirement coming from fixed incolme sources anyway - Social Security and pensions for prior employers. It seems to me that this cushion should be sufficient to allow me to not worry about establishing bond ladders or buying CD's. I may be wrong and my wife may make me do it, but I expect to retire in two to three years and retain 100% of my "available" funds in stocks.

Fool on.

Jim
