Congratulations on your new found fortune! Now let's try to make it grow... breaking it down into 4 investment areas:Take 25% and purchase stocks in the Rule Maker Portfolio. (despite the Fool's repeated warnings NOT to simply buy what they do, I prefer to let them do the analysis. Admittedly, to date it's not a sterling performance... but their logic and parameters make sense for long-haul investing.)Allocate another 25% to buy two index stocks - NOT funds - and dollar cost average monthly purchases of each. The two stock indexes (indicies?) I'd pick would break down as follows: 20% SPY and 5% QQQ representing the S&P 500 and Nasdaq markets repsectively. 25% in bonds with staggered maturity dates about a year apart. Rolling them over each time one matures or is paid off.25% in tax free money market. That way you have a nice reserve for -gulp- rainy days, or some flexibility when that dream investment comes along that you are convinced is right for you.A toast to your wealth,bhincc
