Hello,

I am new to investing been at it about 3 weeks now with real money. I have been a Fool for two of them. This is my portfolio. I would like to get your ideas on it. In addition, where I should go from here to help diversify it. There are a few laggards in there but I figured I would give them some time to see what happens. Any thoughts or comments would be greatly appreciated. I am signed up for the Fool Stock advisor, Rule Breakers, and Hidden Gems as far as news letters go. 

I have read up on bonds and havn't/probably won't buy them myself as I get a headache just trying to make sence of them all. When it comes time to move to bonds I will probably use bond funds. I have 20 years till retirement, own 2 homes free and clear, and have enough cash that I could survive a year with out working if I had to. I also just quit smoking and plan to put the 150.00 saved each month into the market.

Have a great holiday and thanks for any suggestions you may have.
Jim
