Induction Cooktops

Induction cooking is probably the most practical and economical way of cooking now a days. Why? It is because it has been proven that it cooks faster and more efficient when it comes to energy saving compare to gas. Induction cooking has been around for several years now, and has been used in some restaurants and homes worldwide. It has a good reputation when it comes to environment and energy saving, however some still have doubts about this product since it is using electricity as a source of energy, not knowing that there are many good benefits we can get from induction cooking such as; it is cheaper compare to gas and ordinary electric cooker. It is easy to clean, cooks faster and keeps the cooks cool as this cooker does not generate heat around the kitchen which also shows that this unit is energy efficient.

Now the best thing I like about this product is that it is the safest cooker I have ever seen! Because there is no open flame and the surface is smooth there is a very slim chance of injury. I think, this induction cooktops are faster and better, and it is just what every cook needs!

Heartwarming song Christmas song

These are my all times favorite Christmas songs, I think they are emotionally rewarding as the lyrics are brilliant and the melody is also relaxing. I could not post the music, but I have here the lyrics of the songs which you might like to read. Merry Christmas!

Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas

Have yourself a merry little Christmas,
Let your heart be light
From now on,
our troubles will be out of sight

Have yourself a merry little Christmas,
Make the Yule-tide gay,
From now on,
our troubles will be miles away.

Here we are as in olden days,
Happy golden days of yore.
Faithful friends who are dear to us
Gather near to us once more.

Through the years
We all will be together,
If the Fates allow
Hang a shining star upon the highest bough.
And have yourself A merry little Christmas now.

Chestnuts roasting on an open fire

Chestnuts roasting on an open fire,
Jack Frost nipping on your nose,
Yuletide carols being sung by a choir,
And folks dressed up like Eskimos.

Everybody knows a turkey and some mistletoe,
Help to make the season bright.
Tiny tots with their eyes all aglow,
Will find it hard to sleep tonight.

They know that Santa's on his way;
He's loaded lots of toys and goodies on his sleigh.
And every mother's child is going to spy,
To see if reindeer really know how to fly.

And so I'm offering this simple phrase,
To kids from one to ninety-two,
Although its been said many times, many ways,
A very Merry Christmas to you .

Top Tips to avoid falling for a phishing scam

I got this tip's on an email from a well known supermarket here in the United Kingdom. Since it is almost Christmas and the busiest time of the year to shop online, I just thought I would share this on my blog to help you as well as other people to be safe against 'phishing' attacks.

A phishing attempt often arrives as an email, pop-up screen or text message created by criminals to gain personal security information by pretending to be from seemingly authentic companies. They can look very convincing at first glance as they copy branding, styles and logos.

Phishing emails - so named because fraudsters use them to "fish" for information - attempt to entice people to provide sensitive information or take actions that a fraudster can exploit for financial gain or other malicious purposes. Within the message they then urge you to click on a link from an apparently real business that you may have used. From that site they trick you into giving away your personal security information. Some phishing emails even threaten dire consequences if you don't respond.

Tip 1
Think before you act - if it sounds suspicious, or too good to be true, it probably is.

Tip 2
Never respond directly to an email request from a company for personal or financial information.
Instead verify the authenticity of the request by using an email or telephone contact that you know is legitimate.

Tip 3
Never go to a web site from a link in an email you suspect to be fraudulent.
Instead enter URLs that you know are legitimate directly into your browser or by using bookmarks you created.

Tip 4
If you unwittingly supply personal or financial information, inform the appropriate institutions immediately.
Banks and credit card companies will work with you to prevent your information from being used against you.

Tip 5
If an apparently legitimate Web site that you have visited before prompts you for a password, enter an incorrect one first. A fraudulent Web site will accept an incorrect password while a legitimate one will not.

Fantail rotten tail cure

A fish tail rot could kill a fish, in fact, 4 of my lovely fantail fish died of it. It all happen so quickly, first I notice that my 2 of my fantail fish were not so happy, they don’t swim much and one of them got a white spot on the tail and the next day, it looks like it has been nip by other fishes in the aquarium. On the 3rd day, it started to get so thin, and on the 4th day one died. The next day the 2nd fish died with same problem, white spots and rotten tail problem. The 2 remaining fish also died a couple of days later, so my husband got another gold fish and put it in the same aquarium without changing the water. He thought it would be allright because he just replaced the filter, but the day after he puts the gold fish in the aquarium, I noticed white spots all over the body and more on the tail. Anyway, we took out the gold fish and placed it in our old small aquarium; we also went to a pet shop and got this medicine for fish called disease clear. Basically it is a cure for all types of disease including tail rot and white or red spots. Anyway, it did work well! Took about 8 days to cure totally the disease and got plenty of it left. The gold fish is now healthy and has not got any problem after it has been cured. So if you got the same problem, don’t take long to get a medicine for it, clean and change the aquarium water and clean all the ornaments in it. If possible while your fish is sick, you can put it in a small container and put the medicine on it for a couple of days, while cleaning your aquarium thoroughly.
