    I really like your blog, and wanted to ask for advice/question. I plan to get about $1000 to put into a quality stock that can be held through my life and down to the kids- and add to it. I have studied until my eyes are bleeding, looking at KO, CB, PG, MMM, MCD, and a ton more. What are your thoughts on ONE stock or ETF that can grow, pay better than 2.0% (over3% better) dividends if possible, and is safe?

    Thanks,
