I'm eighty and the Mrs. is 76, both in good health. We have $85000in Wellesly Income (Vanguard) earning about 7%. We have another $80000 in CD's earning 2.5% now but soon to roll over. Suggestions for putting the CD money, please. We do not need current income from investments.

Who also needs to know what realistically your investment timeframe is...
