"It looks like now is not the right point in the interest rate cycle to be buying bond funds"

I doubt anyone can predict intrest rates.

"Bonds certainly aren't going to rally anytime soon, right?" No but they pay intest.

"I don't have time to do alot of research; I'm expecting to pay someone else up to 50 basis points annually to pick good bonds. "

Why not stick to vanguard. try the inflation protected and GNMA funds. International bonds funds if you worry about the dollar.
