Hi Dan,

Thanks for asking. Unfortunately, what follows is probably not going to be much help to you.

No doubt you're familiar with Champ's four-legged stool? He borrowed that idea from me. How else
to explain the coincidence that we both have four legs? Although my legs are more shapely.

1. Money market

2. Short-term treasuries and short-term CDs

3. A fund that guarantees principal and a base rate of interest and pays additional interest above
the base rate based on inflation. This fund is NOT available to the public. It was part of an early
retirement package.

4. Real estate.

Yeah, not much help...sorry!
