Good question! With bonds you at least know you will get the interest along the way plus FULL principal back when you hold them to maturity. Problem with bonds is no inflation protection. NOTHING beats a balanaced portfolio. Have you read the book "Buckets of Money," by Ray Lucia? He has another book just out entitled "Ready, Set, Retire." Great radio show and/or on the internet at www.raylucia.com Excellent advice!
