No. of Recommendations: 1
You should consider:
1) putting 20% or so of your money in foreign bonds as you do not want to bet on the value of the dollar. You can do this either with no load mutual funds or closed end funds like TGG and GIM.

2) putting 20% or so of your money in inflation protected treasuries (TIPS).

3) I would suggest putting the remainder in a GNMA (Ginnie Mae) fund.

Do not rule out stocks and real estate altogether.
