<<<...to discuss how they invest their post-retirement moneys, in that pre-retirement investing is somewhat different from post-retirement investing. >>>

With retirement coming at earlier and earlier ages, or lifespans increasing, I think pre and post retirement investing is a moot question. Considering inflation over long periods of time, the only way to keep or increase your buying power is to invest in stocks. Outside of withholding a living expenses stash, there should be little difference in styles. What ever you were tolerant of before risk wise, you should still be the same after retirement. Otherwise, you'd be changing horses in mid-stream, not dancing with the one that brought you, (insert other appropriate cliches here). All of course IMHO.
