You know, it would ahve been so much easier in 1997 or 1998.
Anyhow, yesterday I got a big healthy check, containing my down payment and equity on the old house in Florida.
I plan on buying a house here in the KC area in October or November. In the meantime, I have to put that check someplace safe. (Granted, a few thou will probably be going to Jennifer Covertibles for some new living room furniture, but the rest will be banked.)
I'm not content to let a healthy pile of dough earn 1% interest in some money market account. I was thinking about 75% bank/25% blue chip old school stocks (Ford, GE, etc), but I'd like to know what you think. So ... any advice that doesn't involve tech stocks, Indian gaming, Powerball or personal loans to dear, dear friends?
