Thank you to all who replied - you have answered two questions that I've been thinking about for quite a while 1. How to treat DH's pension when calculating percent of fixed assets vs equities in our retirement portfolio (I'm planning to look into the Buckets of Money approach)2. I shouldn't confuse owning real estate with an allocation to REITs - they are liquid and income producing while our real estate is not liquid and is not a reliable source of income. I should at least consider REITs as part of our portfolio because of low correlation with other asset classes.I have made good estimates of our spending patterns over the last 10 years or so, so I'm pretty sure I know how much I'll need to withdraw from our portfolio each year. I appreciate being reminded by BruceM that there is no need to take more risk than is needed to produce the required return. This was my first post to a Fool discussion board, and I am very impressed with the result. It definitely will not be my last. Again, thanks to all!rBg
