First, have you perused the Fool School, ( There, the recommended investment is the s&p500 index fund if you want the 'Lazy Investors Way to Riches'. If 10.5% per year, long-term, is enough for you, great. If you want something better, then look into the Dow Dividend Approaches (Beat The Dow, Unemotional Value, & Foolish Four). From there, only your comfort is your limit. Do what makes you comfortable, allows you to sleep at night, and will keep you from cashing in at the first sign of a bear.

You never indicated what you time horizon is? 5, 10, 20 years? Why do you want 'bonds thrown in for
income'? With 10 or more years, you should stay fully vested in stocks.
