Hi nmckay,I've enjoyed a lot of your posts around the Fool, thanks for sharing your thoughts and wisdom.I'm curious why you are choosing bonds over laddered CDs ? I'm thinking I like the safety that CDs offer over bonds. Plus, five years is a fair amount of time to outlast a bear market, yet is a pretty small percentage of our portfolio.I also am looking at having as simple a portfolio as possible. Therefore I'm pretty much looking at the following asset allocation:- small cap index- international index- total US stock mkt. index- 5 years living expenses in laddered CDsI wish I could have only one account, but that isn't possible. Here are our accounts:1 401k1 403b2 Roths1 taxable accountI think this is as simplified as I can get.-helen
