<<Ann's recent article on investing in bonds brought to mind an article I read recently (in the WSJ, I think) concerning retirement investing strategy. (I thought at the time that is sounded positively Foolish) The article suggested putting in Bonds only enough funds to meet your current spending budget plus 3 to 5 years and leaving the rest in Stocks.

When the stocks have a good year replenish your bonds by selling stocks. If stocks aren't doing that well, draw down the bonds. The contention was that 3 to 5 years spending in bonds should be enough to weather significant market turmoil.>>

Yes, it is a frequently espoused investing philosophy on this and other Foolish boards.
