My wife recently retired and received a lump sum along with her 401k. We want to protect 40% to 50% of the IRA money by investing in Bonds. I am a novice and recently realized that you can loose principal when investing in bond mutual funds. What are all my choices in investing in different levels of safty in interest bearing investment vehicles. My wife is not going to need this money for a least 2 years. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I'm planning to retire next year and have had the same question. A good start is to look at the "Bonds & Fixed Income Investments" board at http://boards.fool.com/Messages.asp?id=1030062000132000
