Counting down to Christmas and tax savings
Tax overhaul over and out … for now

Musical break

Fellow journalist Holden Lewis, who tracks the intricacies of mortgages in his Mortgage Matters blog, pulled a blast out of my musical past: Joe King Carrasco and the Crowns. Yes, Holden, I remember King Carrasco very well (see, I am reading your blog!). He was among the wildest groupsKing_carrasco_2 around and he still bills himself as the number one party act in music. That explains why Carrasco was so popular among the college crowd (not that I didn't study, but there's a time for everything). Of course my husband, who covered entertainment events for our college newspaper, got better seats thanks to his press credentials. Too bad I didn't know my hubby back then, although the club venues that Joe (and his fans) favored were pretty accessible for everyone. Joe's still a working musician and finally mi esposo and I will have a chance to see a Carrasco performance together later this month when he rolls into Austin's Evangeline Cafe. Glad to see he's still out there, and hope that if the tax break for musicians makes it into law, the King of Tex-Mex rock-n-roll (my husband says a more accurate description is Tex-Mex garage band sound) can benefit from it.
