Thanks for the recommendations guys... keep em' coming. I would like to diversify them a bit.

My IRA is a single Vanguard index fund. DH chose a single managed international fund.

Your choice of the word "safe" concerns me. No matter what stocks, stock fund, or combination you choose, some of the time it will go down. Some of the time people will say that it is a lousy choice. A good chance of significant positive returns comes from your entire portfolio being diversified, using dollar cost averaging, and have a very long time horizon until you start to spend the money. But it is still a chance.
