For the cash/liguid part, I would consider putting about 70% in short and intermediate Vanguard investment grade bond funds, possibly as high as 75%. The other 25% to 30%, I would put in the Total Market Index with Vanguard. I would reinvest the interest and distrubtuions, then withdraw no more than 4 or 5% per year for your additional spending. This is just some rough ideas. Looks like you're doing fairly well all by yourself, so I wouldn't pay anyone for help. Good luck. Even at your age, you still could use some growth in case one of you lives a very long time.
