Headphone Review: Pioneer SE- CH3T vs Sony MDREX650

For a few years I used the Sony MDREX 650 Brass headphones. They had a clear sound, were comfortable and practical for everyday use. The main issue I had was that they tended to break every 6-12 months, by the jack port part of the wire.

The sound is open and detailed, but its not that warm or fun.  So I would say the sound is quite cold. As I have mentioned, it is wiser to use headphones generally on a specific separate mp3/music player rather than using your mobile phone. This avoids the situation of the radio frequency of the phone going into your ears/head.

Rating: 4/5

The Pioneer SE - CH3T comes in around the same price as the Sony model if you are purchasing from Amazon. I think these Pioneer headphones are great because the sound is warm, exciting and clear. Sure, there are downsides to these headphones. The fit could be better, as they don't fit that well in the ear. The solution to this is to put the back part of the earphone back against the ear, and they then stay in well.

Also with the 3 buds which come with the earphones, the sizing could be improved. I have gone with the medium buds, as I imagine most people will. It is hard to tell if the fact that they can fall out is to do with just the shape of the earphone or the bud. But large is too big and uncomfortable. But the sound, especially indoors, is neat and brings clarity to the music you may not have picked up on before. The sound isolation is not anything great, while outside, but overall these are excellent for the price and the sound.

Vivani Black Cherry Chocolate Review

Vivani Black Cherry Chocolate (35g)

The good news is that it is organic, vegan and it tastes great. It is up to you to research and decide how good/bad chocolate like this is for you overall.  Raw chocolate would be healthier. But this is a one sitting type portion, I think it has an air of sophisticaion and it is well designed.

Asics Gel Kayano Trainer Evo Review

Image rights belong to Asics Tiger. All opinions are my own.


I am a fan of the general Asics Gel Kayano trainer, as it combines great general shoe support with overal comfort. The difference here with the Trainer Evo is the upper part of the shoe. Instead of the durable and reasonabley weather proof exterior, with the Evo we get a very thin material and light upper part of the shoe.

This means, if for example, it is cold and windy, or wet, you get no protection from the elements with this shoe. This could apply to going for walk or going for a run. If you are going for a run in good weather, then these are fine. If you are just doing minimal walking outside in different weather, then they are fine also. The shoe's lower support system is still the same as the regular Gel Kayano trainer, so it works well in that respect for running or walking.

But for me, they fall short as being not ideal for running or walking. I will use them for running. But it would be better to either go for the more durable full Asics Gel Kayano trainer, or the Gel Lyte models for everyday walking. The Gel Kayano trainer, which you can get on amazon, by searching Gel Kayano trainer, or from Asics directly with variables such as the X Mita or Naked X. The Gel Lyte shoe is fine for everyday walking, but I wouldn't use it for running.

Favourite Albums of the 2010s - updated

If there are lyrics with music, I believe it is important to read the lyrics. This way, you will know if you truly resonate with the music.

In this most recent decade, I have been a fan of Crystal Magic Orchestra, their music and meditation work.  This is meditation type music, without lyrics. You can find out more about their music at http://crystalmagicorchestra.com/

I have included a couple of albums of theirs which I haven't heard in full, including Cosmic Jazz and Cosmic Trinity. But, I like what I have heard from them and that is enough for me to rate them here. These albums are not ranked in order, I have generally listed them in order of release. Thanks to the universe for these musical works.

Fungal/Colon Cleanse Review

Yeast, candida and fungal imbalance are common in many people. It is a different matter to realising that this is the case for you. There are a few reasons why it is so common, but that is less important than addressing the issue.

One reason it is common actually comes down to diet, as too much yeast through food; bread, mushrooms, beer etc can overwhelm the body. A sign to look out for is anything like athletes foot, or any irregularity with nail patterns, especially on the feet. The same way the nails on the hands can indicate a vitamin deficiency, the nails on the feet are more likely to suggest an issue with yeast/fungus.

Thyme Formula

This formula contains Thyme, Licorice, Rosemary and some other ingredients. I found it works very well. Personally, in addition to taking this, I also took Oxy-Powder from Global Healing Center. So, following the instructions, you would take the Thyme twice a day, then I'd take Oxy-Powder, a couple of capsules in the evening. You could also take a probiotic supplement, such as Latero Flora. The instructions from Finchley Clinic recommend taking for 3 months at least.

This formula contains ingredients wildcrafted Jatoba, wildcrafted Pau D'Arco, Licorice and others. It is interesting to note that the ingredient set is somewhat different from the Thyme formula, but both work to the same effect. Pretty cool, I think. This product is larger, with 120 capsules, but with a higher price. Although it is not mentioned in the literature I have read, for both products in my experience they are also anti parasitic as a side effect, which is always good. This formula works well, and I would follow the process taking with Oxy Powder. The guide recommends taking Latero Flora or other probiotic with it.

Vegan UK Restaurant Reviews


Locations: Across the UK. I have visited a few, including Manchester and Leeds.

I went with the vegan pie called Kevin...so good, with chips, it is a filling and satisfying meal. They have added another vegan pie, which I haven't tried. A relaxed vibe with well designed restaurants.

Rating: 5/5

Eighth Day Cafe

Location: Manchester

As well as being a vegan friendly store, they have a cafe downstairs. There is a changing menu, which normally always offers something interesting, always with a few vegan options. It's quite an open space and good for casual daytime food.

Rating: 5/5

The Stable

Location: Cardiff

A well decorated and interesting interior design. The food is equally excellent. The vegan pizza there is recommended.

Vegan Breakfast Ideas

Years ago I used to eat granola often. But it contains quite alot of sugar. Now I tend to eat muesli. I try and go for one with no added sugar. Usually it includes oats, nuts and raisins and is a great start to the day. I would usually have some cinammon on top, or nutmeg is good also.

I would normaly go with either oat, coconut or almond milk, all of which are vegan. Rice milk is fine too, but I prefer the others.

Also I would have either a sandwich or toast after this. You could have toast with hummus, or mashed avocado, and some olive oil, or make a vegan sandwich.

Nutritional status matters

Research is indicating that people require a high level of nutrition to increase benefits with vision and hair growth.

In recent years, there has been a large increase in the number of people with visual acuity, namely short sight. This leads to a focus of a high nutrient diet, especially if vegan or vegeterian. It also brings forth a theory of the importance of nutritional/ antioxidant stores within the body. (references and links below)
