There was an article in Barron's - a weekly investing newspaperon November, 29, 1020 covering "How to Keep the Income Flowing"which has a good discussion on alternate bond investments alongwith some other approaches.Basically, it talks about non-US government bonds, corporate bonds, Build America bonds, Senior bank loans, master limited partnerships,dividend-paying stocks, variable annuities (not particularly apopular option but may have a place - look out for costs), and municipal bonds.TMF and other sites have had articles about Muni-bonds - and whatstates might be most likely to declare bankruptcy - if they are allowed in the near future. There are something like 10 where risks are high - as I recall anything below AAA rating is suspectand although some are rated "A" - that ain't good.Good luck - I am not sure eitherHowie52
