<<<I'm a relative novice investor-about 1 1/2 years - and thanks to the Motley Fools have done quite well with my 25K portfolio. This amount of money however scares the hell out of me. >>>You say you've done quite well with your 25k portfolio so I'd assume you're comfortable with the screens you've chosen for that money. Don't let the number of zeroes you're handling scare you, within reason, if you managed small amounts easily, you'll manage larger ones just as well if you understand and are comfortable with the screens you've chosen. Like yourself, I started small and now invest a sizable sum, it took a little getting used to typing in those "extra" numbers on the trade, but now I like it!Most people here advise 3-5 years worth of living expenses in cash, CDs, or money market funds. The rest in stocks, preferably "Foolishly" chosen screens. One important thing to remember, at your age, another 30 years of life is not impossible. Need to invest in stocks to outpace inflation.JLC
