I appreciate your comments but looking at the example of the Bond Ladder you provided I get a little confused. You are showing a Cash Flow of over $50K but $30K of that is earmarked for another 5 year bond that is paying the same or better rate.

So in reality the $50K Cash flow is really only $21K of income. Unless I am missing something I don't see how one can live high on the hog with only 20 grand before taxes. Also I don't have a Million as yet but I am still buying Lottery Tickets, so maybe before I retire I'll have it.

In the interim I will continue seeking investments that will pay a little more than savings bank rates. I don't mind a little extra risk as I hope to minimize that by diversifying over a wide range of instruments.
