Magicbox Ultra-Portable Bluetooth Speaker


Magicbox Ultra-Portable wireless bluetooth speaker.This is a wonderful little speaker from DKnight. It puts out a big sound, which is amazing coming from such a little box.

My husband was surprised that the sound was so loud, and the volume wasn’t even turned all the way up.

We connected it to his phone so he can use it to listen to his music.

The Magicbox Ultra-Portable Bluetooth Speaker is small enough to fit in a jacket pocket so he can carry it with him when he is out doing chores, or horseback riding, or wherever.

I’m not absolutely sure it will work everywhere he goes, because some areas don’t get good cell reception, but even if it only works in some places it will be nice.

It has a microphone and you can use it to answer calls.  It also has a 3.5mm Aux in jack, which means it can play all audio devices.

It didn’t take it very long to get completely charged up either. I just plugged in the usb port and left it for a while.  The battery when fully charged provides up to 10 hours of play time.

The one I got is black but it also comes in a pretty blue or red.

Party Hearty With Xoundstar Portable Bluetooth Speakers


Xoundstar Portable Speaker.I wish we had these Xoundstar® Portable Speakers back when I was in high school, and college.

We used to go out to the river and party on the weekends and these speakers would have been great to use out there.

I’m pretty sure kids (and even grown ups) still do that, and they could use these speakers out there.

Of course you can use them for pool parties, or take on camping trips, or anywhere you might need (want) speakers.

They pair with Bluetooth and NFC equipped devices.

I have used them wired to my computer, and paired with my phone through Bluetooth.

They produce a wonderful, clear, sound, that goes plenty loud enough even for a hearing impaired person (with hearing aids anyway).

I have the speaker on my computer desk, the sound comes through loud and clear. The desk vibrates nicely too. I like that.

Xoundstar Speakers wired to my computer.

I did have a problem getting it to pair with the computer at first. I think that was my fault because I had not ever used the Bluetooth with anything.  I got it right the second time I tried.

Then I decided to try it wired to the computer. I liked it so much I decided to keep it on there, except when we want to use it with the phones somewhere.

It would be great to take on fishing trips, or out to the farm to listen to while working with the horses, or out in the yard while doing yard work.

And of course for parties, if we ever have one again.

These speakers can play for up to 10 hours when fully charged.  That means they should last for a whole weekend out in the boonies if you don’t leave them on constantly.

24th Annual Loose Caboose Festival In Paragould, Arkansas

This years Loose Caboose Festival is coming up soon! This year will be the 24th annual festival and in my opinion they just keep getting better every year.

This year the festival is going to be at the Green County Fairgrounds. I’m not sure why but they couldn’t do it out by the old Caboose this year.

Red Caboose in downtown Paragould, Arkansas.Some things will still be happening downtown like the 5k  Run & Walk and the Iron Caboose Bike Ride but most of the other things will be happening at the Fair Grounds.

There will of course be the Carnival on all three days with Thursday night being armband night. If you want to get the lowest possible price you will have to pick up armband tickets at the Main Street Paragould office (the caboose) between 3 and 5pm that day. After that you can get them for two dollars more at the gate of the fairgrounds. Sounds like a pretty good deal to me….especially if you have to be downtown anyway…just stop by and pick up your tickets while you are there.

Saturday will have free entertainment all day starting with a Youth Music Talent Contest at 10am and continuing through the evening. For information on the rest of the entertainment check the free entertainment schedule here.

The main event on Friday night is a concert by Restless Heart. I don’t know all their songs but I do know they have some good ones including Dancy’s Dream, which is one of my favorites.  Admission is $5 that night and you might want to take some chairs with you because they are only guaranteeing seats to the folks who buy the first 1000  tickets. I suppose it is possible that not that many will show up…but I expect there will be quite a few more than that.

There will also be Arts & Crafts exhibits (and sales), commercial exhibits, and of course food vendors.

If you are the adventurous sort you can take a plane ride on Saturday and get a a really good view of the festival…and the rest of the town too! Just go to the Paragould airport and make a $20 donation to Arkansas Pilots for Christ.  For more information check out this Facebook page. I would like to do this if I can talk myself into it. I’m afraid of heights and not at all sure how I would do in an airplane.

So if you didn’t already have plans for that weekend…you now have several fun things to do!

Feel The Need For Live Music?

If you like live music you might want to check out Bluegrass Monday.

Of course that is only if you like Bluegrass!

This is a live concert held once a month…usually on the 4th Monday of each month at the old Collins Theatre at 120 West Emerson, in Paragould, Arkansas.

The concert is sponsored by KASU 91.9 FM and features bluegrass musicians from all over the United States.

This coming Monday the scheduled performers are David Davis and the Warrior River Boys.

The concert is free but they do pass the hat and they hope that all attendees would donate at least 5 bucks which ALL goes to the musicians according to their MySpace page.

For more info you can also check out  Bluegrass Monday on Facebook.

I first heard about this last week. Why did no one tell me before??? I could have been going to free concerts once a month.

Yes I am deaf but I can still feel the music even if I can’t hear it and if you take into account that lots of live concerts are WAY TOO LOUD then even deaf people can enjoy them.

Besides at least half the fun of a live concert is people watching. Both the people performing and the people listening…or doing whatever they are doing. You never know with southerners.  Some of them might just come to sit and take a nap(if the music isn’t TOO LOUD).

Yes I have a bee in my bonnet about loud music…you listen to too much of it and you will ruin your hearing and I can tell you for a fact that not being able to hear AIN’T NO FUN!! So there.

Anyway this sure seems like a fun way to get out of the house once a month that won’t cost an arm and a leg. I’m all for that.

What do you think? Sound fun?
