Hi Wendy,

First of all I want to say that I've always enjoyed the time, consideration and energy you put into your posts. I don't post very often so I'm just taking this opportunity to give praise where praise is due. Keep up the good work!

As to your questions. I just listened to a Citibank sponsored conference call with
George Freelander about the bond market. One piece of info that was new for me is that since 1980 inflation has been a lagging indicator...in other words inflation has tended to peak after the tightening cycle has ended. Maybe everyone else has know this but it was brand new for me........Something to consider with TIPS.

My personal style has always been individual bonds/CD's/ Treasuries rather than funds. I have recently been buying short durations...1 to 2 years but am now looking at 8-10 years out.

V.
