At Heartwood Cohousing, we have about $225K of cash and investment holdings 
allocated as follows:
25% cash (in local bank and Vanguard MMF)
50% bonds (Vanguard tax-exempt bond fund: VTEAX)
25% stocks & REIT (Vanguard: VGSLX, VTIAX, VTSAX)

Our overriding strategy is to maintain relatively safe investments while 
earning a decent return. Our average return for the past 8 years has been 3.7%.
