yeah, add the current value of the pension (and SS) on the bond side and we're all more diversified than we might have realized.

I was targeting 1/3 (rental property), 1/3 (equities), 1/3 (bonds, SS, pension). The real estate tanked before I could get there (can't sell now) ... but - as I've said - it now looks like the more stable peice of the pie.
