TRRR: Don't get advice from a bulletin board. Retirement planning involves much more than just picking investments. There are special tax rules just for people about to retire and you're not going to learn about them from some small time stock picker that thinks they know more about financial matters than Alan Greenspan. Find a reputable financial advisor that specializes in retirement planning. Don't give total control to them but use them for their expertise.

As far as joining an investment club, go ahead but keep in mind that most are mostly social clubs and not gonna teach you much about financial planning.

If you're not gonna learn any more than the basics of investing hire a pro.

Just as you might have some basic knowledge about building a house. Would you try it alone? Even tho you could save a TON of money doing it yourself, the house might fall down someday. I wonder if LEE3 will take resposibility for trying to steer you away from a financial advisor after if you happen to make a mistake?
