I just bought a large 5% CD today. I'm feeling very good.

Where and for how long?
I was just looking at ING Direct's 2-yr/4.5% yield CD.

edit:
I realize WAMU has been bought out but that does not concern me. I just went to their site and they're offering 5% yields on on-line 12 month CD's. I might buy this.

That's where I got it. I've been with them for years and now they're Chase Bank. .

If it's good enough for a gambler like you, it's good enough for me. I'm buying tomorrow morning.

So are cds airtight as opposed to other acounts like money market? We have a few CDs. Are they part of the FDIC insurance?

We lost a little bit...but there are still another 20 or 30 years to go before I retire. So, I guess we are OK, provided the world is still here then. We are definitely in it for the loooooong haul.

good luck!
