I am curious. I am somewhat older than you and still have plenty invested in equities that produce dividends and some old bonds. Where would you put your money after selling off your stocks? Would you use it all to pay for a retirement community?

As to your other question, the end of TV. Not in my house. Some folks may want to watch all their programs on their computers or iPads....I kind of enjoy my bigger HD flatscreen. If you think Verizon and Comcast are going to have bad earnings, or may drop their dividends, by all means, you might want to sell. Hopefully you have some idea where you will put the money. In a Vanguard mutual? Do you believe that move would be safer? Does the mutual fund you are looking at own any Verizon, Comcast, TW?

Like I said, just curious. BTW, the retirement community in my area is full of 80+ yr olds. I am only 77, much to young for them.
