I am 49, retired almost a year. I keep close to a 100% equity allocationin top quality, dividend paying stocks. I see no reason to keep any $$ inbonds when the 3+% dividends from my stocks (GGP, KIM, PLD, VNO, WRE,C, GE, JNJ, PG, etc) easily cover my expenses and generally go upsubstantially faster than inflation. Large price fluctuations in eitherdirection are irrelevant except for getting opportunities to tradetemporarily higher valued securities for lower valued ones.I think you need to look at your individual situation rather than following general rules from others that might not apply to you.
