When I give the "quick" overview of my base portfolio I say:

The whole board here (this homepage) will go away. That is sad but true as things stand now. How any of the boards will be backed up is still unclear. Cheers!

I guess most agree that TIPs can be a good part in a well diversified portfolio.

If one decides to run it as 2 portfolios (1 TIPs/1 others) and first spending down the TIPs portfolio while letting ...

I am always polite Hocus - unlike you in the above post. I presume you are just having a bad day (so am I actually) and will just let it go.

The 4 percent number was not always safe in earlier periods, BeachBumz. It always SURVIVED in earlier periods. That's something different.
