I just wanted to know where to go for advice. I did print out the Vanguard options you posted earlier. I liked the Vanguard people. You get a free advisor when you invest over 250,000.00 with them. I feel pretty comfortable with them. I have been getting advice from everyone, and just didn't know where to start. I have read a lot over the last year about financial advisors and banks. There a good number of people that I worked with that are all getting this kind of lump sum payment, and they are all using financial advisors and banks. Kind of scary. Thank you for your advice. Actually the initial vanguard proposal for asset allocation looks pretty close to what you gave me.

If you want opinions on the advice Vanguard gives you in terms of funds and asset allocation then feel free to post the gist of that advice here. It sounds as if you might be able to build up some trust with Vanguard. If I were in your situation I would probably go the same route.

Best of luck!
