I'm just getting started with this ER stuff so I expect things will change as I learn more ~ especially about indexing, etc.

I currently use two brokerage accounts - Ameriprise and Wachovia.....but as I am listening to those here that "follow a different path ".....I DID just open a MM account with Vanguard with the expectation that (as I learn) I will move other funds there as well..... you see....I AM listening

Just one for convenience, if you are under the $500K limit or whatever for insurance. The odds of anything bad happening are very small, but having a 2nd account at a different brokerage would diversify you from embezzlement or brokerage bankruptcy or similar risks. Most investors are quite competent to wipe themselves out, no help needed from the broker...similar to a gambler in the casino! Good luck.
I've got nothing against an honest day's work, provided that someone else does it.
