    Balancing Portfolios

      I am 2 to 3 years from retirement and need to balance my portfolio which is currently about 72% equities and 28% fixed income.  I would like to go to 60/40 in the next year or so.  I do not believe in annuities and wish to move funds from equities to bonds.  However, I am worried about the bond prices falling because as the economy turns for the better (in the next couple of years) the feds will have to start tightening the prime lending rate.  What should I do?
