In the investing world, you're told to invest in stocks and bonds. My question is that bonds today are not paying much. Why would we put money there? Is there a better place in this low interest world that is safe?

Also I have received money from our work employee owned stock fund when it was bought out. With stocks being so high right now and the prospect for the stock market to drop, where should I put this money?

Thanks,
