My income varies ...I'm self employed, hubby is salaried. He saves in a 401k (the max) and I in a Keogh (the max).

I'm also self employed with a varying income and a Keogh Plan. For some years I thought "the max" was the nominal 15% (real 13+%) that you can contribute to a Keogh Profit Sharing Plan. Eventually I learned that you can add a Keogh Money Purchase Plan for an additional 10%, bringing the total contribution to a nominal 25% (real 20%). I mention this in case you or some other reader hasn't yet discovered this. The new Keogh needs to be established before the end of the year.

Where can I go, to whom might I speak, to get an opinion about whether I have a good retirement plan with this array of resources?

As Fools, we do a lot of this for ourselves. You need some idea of retirement income you will want and a plan for generating that income from your investments. Back posts here and on The Retire Early Home Page board are good places to start.
