If you have only a few thousand or less to invest at this time, it probably doesn't make much sense to bother with individual bonds or a bunch of different funds, you should probably just put it in a single intermediate or short term bond fund which is in the middle of your comfort zone, then you can add to it over time. </quote>

This is my dilemma. I could probably invest about $2500 to start and then put 2% of my income into whatever vehicle I choose (I was thinking about TBM, but am now considering the DRiP angle, as some folks I am talking to think that the Bond Market has been run up and may be due for a 'correction')

All: thanks SO MUCH for the thoughts here! I have always found TMF Boards as THE place to really learn about personal finance, insurance, retirement, etc. This is great!
