4% of a $1,000,000 portfolio is $40,000 a year. Not a magnificient income but easily possible to live on.

intercst says he withdraws only 1.5% for all annual expenses. That requires a tremendous amount of money in a portfolio - unless he is living on peanuts (which I doubt). :)

I will take to heart what you all have said about bonds. I will take a look at my portfolio and see what's what. And I really do appreciate the time you took in replying to my post. Thanks so much.
