1. Moving money to muni bonds. They are taxed less, increasing the net to me, and still have some nice yields.
2. I needed some extra life insurance coverage. I got a policy from LifeAnt that will net me about 4-5% over time in tax deferred dividends. Not bad for something that protects my family too (you need life insurance if you don't have it, and you may as well profit from it ;) ).
3. I started a small business that did not take a lot of startup capital. It does not make a ton of money yet but it should grow over time, and we are already capital positive.
4. I am putting some money back into my house because we need to move to a bigger one within a couple years, but this is also tax deferred growth and can give a nice return when done correctly.
5. I bought some limited partnerships in real estate deals. I don't think real estate is quite as inflated as equity markets, but at the very least it is more diversity.
Anything I can do to keep it this time around.

It's like playing russian roulette with 5 bullets in the gun....
Horrible advice. Stocks losing money and stocks at 52-week highs losing money. No thanks.
