help with funds

I am currently 37 years old. I work in civil service and am eligable for retirement in 7 years but do have the option to stay if I so choose. I receive a pension which is equivelent to half of my pay now. I also save in a 457 account which I split 50% small caps and 50% international. I also receive a variable supplement upon completion of 20 years and if I stay longer than 20 bank each year of the supplement until retirement. I currently own Vanguard Weslley and am happy with it. I am not looking to go crazy with investments and consider myself a moderate risk taker. What else should I be doing and is Wessley a good choice for me?

I would highly recommend posting this question over here: Bogleheads :: View Forum - Investing - Help with Personal Investments. The recommended format is here: Bogleheads :: View topic - Asking Portfolio Questions. But first I would spend some time reading the WIKI here: Bogleheads as well as reading from the list of books posted here: Books: Recommendations and Reviews - Bogleheads

You have plenty of time before having to make any decisions.
