I am 49, retired almost a year. I keep close to a 100% equity allocation
in top quality, dividend paying stocks. I see no reason to keep any $$ in
bonds when the 3+% dividends from my stocks (GGP, KIM, PLD, VNO, WRE,
C, GE, JNJ, PG, etc) easily cover my expenses and generally go up
substantially faster than inflation. Large price fluctuations in either
direction are irrelevant except for getting opportunities to trade
temporarily higher valued securities for lower valued ones.

I think you need to look at your individual situation rather than following general rules from others that might not apply to you.
