<Mr. Fungi, you could now write a book "Everything You Always Wanted to Know About $950K, Aren't You Sorry You Asked?">

Not at all! I have learned tons in the past week. Plus, I have finally gotten off my duff and opened the line of communication to the TIAA-CREF folks.

I am researching the various TIAA-CREF and Vanguard funds into which I can direct future contributions. I am discovering that many of these funds are simply mixes of other funds -- e.g., 50% bond index fund, 30% equity index fund, 10% TIPs, 7% international index fund, 3% emerging markets index fund. Not exactly rocket surgery.

Next up: a talk with my Schwab guy.

<Don't forget to budget for martinis.>

Guinness for me. Margarita for DW.
