St. Louis Bash
June 18-20, 1999

With the bash only 2 months away, here's a must-see spot you might like to add to your sightseeing agenda.

The Saint Louis Art Museum is a world-class museum . Their collection spans the centuries from ancient Egypt to the present.

Among the 30,000 works in their collection are paintings, sculpture, prints, photographs, glassware, silver, furniture, ceramics, textiles, ritual arts, and drawings. Popular favorites include the 3,000-year-old Egyptian mummy complete with an x-ray that lets you peek inside the mummy case, several recreated Period Rooms, Pre-Columbian figures, suits of armor, Renaissance masterpieces, and Impressionist paintings. They have works by Beckmann, CÚzanne, Degas, van Gogh, Homer, Matisse, Monet, O'Keeffe, Picasso, Rembrandt von Rijn, Warhol, and Frank Lloyd Wright.

The Museum was founded in downtown St. Louis in 1879. Then famed architect Cass Gilbert designed The Palace of Fine Arts for the 1904 World's Fair, a magnificent Beaux Arts-style building. One of only two permanent structures remaining from the Fair, The Saint Louis Art Museum is in a spectacular setting atop Art Hill in Forest Park, one of the largest urban parks in the United States.

Waking up to the realities of retirement planning can make you feel like a student who's overslept on the morning of his finals: sweat-drenched with anxiety at the prospect of arriving late to the most important test of your life. Pick up almost any financial magazine, or pop any planning software into your computer, and you will be told you're heading for a poverty-stricken senescence. It's no wonder that a recent MONEY/ABC Consumer Comfort Index poll found fully half of Americans aren't sure they will retire with enough income and assets to last for the rest of their lives. This Money Online calculator can help you estimate how well your current savings program will prepare you for retirement -- and even show you a graph of how your savings and income will grow over time.

Natalie Imbruglia
Fiona and Alanis notwithstanding, few women in music
can claim as swift a rise to pop stardom as Natalie
Imbruglia. Seemingly out of nowhere, she burst on the
scene in the early weeks of 1998 with a smash hit single,
an ubiquitous video, and a hotly anticipated appearance on
Saturday Night Live —all without benefit of an album in
record stores. To no one's surprise, when Imbruglia's
full-length debut,
Left of the Middle, was released later
that spring, it charted instantly at Number 10. Suddenly
the image of Imbruglia, who just months earlier had been
on the verge of chucking her career in entertainment,
was plastered on magazine covers across the land.
