I have about $60K in an IRA ... I'd appreciate suggestions on how to allocate the money. Foolish four?...... I am 44.

My advice is $20-$30K in Foolish Four, the rest in SPY (See Harry Jones Portfolio to learn more about SPY). Then spend the next year exploring the Motley Fool web site. There are lots of strategies here to fit lots of investment styles, and great information about them. After a while you'll know if you are most comfortable with Rule Makers or Rule Breakers or Mechanical Investing or something else. When you know what you like, you'll be ready to act.
