Vanguard account opened!

After much contemplation, I finally opened up a Vanguard account today for investing purposes.

Other than this, I'm going to keep a reasonable amount in my EmigrantDirect account for easy access and put the rest in that 7 month CD at Lockheed.

We'll see how things progress!
