Our situations are very similar in terms of age and portfolio size, although I've been "retired" since 1987 (went back to school for my Ph.D and now teach and manage non-profits). I have most of my portfolio in stocks and little in bonds (although I cheat with investments in REITs for income). Simply, stocks have, over the long term, greatly outperfomed bonds. This has been especially true in the 90's. Instead of receiving interest payments from the bonds, "take some $$ off the table" when you periodically rebalance/sell some of your stocks.Check into REIT's -- great value and good income, IMO.Bill
