Good to know that the only difference is the "s."
Subject: http
What  is the difference between http  and https ?  Don't  know how many of you are aware of this difference, but it is worth sending to any that do not.....

**The  main difference between http:// and https:// is it's all about keeping you secure.**  HTTP stands for Hyper Text Transfer Protocol.
    
The
S (big surprise) stands for "Secure."  If you visit a website or web page, and look at the address in the web browser, it will likely begin with the following:  http://.     
This means that the website is talking to your browser using the regular unsecured language.  In other words, it is possible for someone to eavesdrop on your computer's conversation with the website.  If you fill out a form on the website, someone might see the information you send to that site.
     
This is why you
never ever enter your credit card number in an http website! But if the web address begins with https://, that basically  means your computer is talking to the website in a secure code that no one can eavesdrop on. 

You understand why this is so important, right? 
 

If a website ever asks you to enter your credit card information, you should automatically look to see if the web address begins with https://. 
     
If it doesn't,
you should NEVER enter sensitive information...such as a credit card number, SS # etc.
    
PASS IT ON (You may save someone a lot of grief).

Microwaving Water........

A 26-year old man decided to have a cup of coffee. He took a cup of water and put it in the microwave to heat it up (something that he had done numerous times before). I am not sure how long he set the timer for, but he wanted to bring the water to a boil.. When the timer shut the oven off, he removed the cup from the oven. As he looked into the cup, he noted that the! Water was not boiling, but suddenly the water in the cup 'blew up' into his face. The cup remained intact until he threw it out of his hand, but all the water had flown out into his face due to the buildup of energy. His whole face is blistered and he has 1st and 2nd degree burns to his face which may leave scarring.

He also may have lost partial sight in his left eye. While at the hospital, the doctor who was attending to him stated that this is a fairly common occurrence and water (alone) should never be heated in a microwave oven. If water is heated in this manner, something should be placed in the cup to diffuse the energy such as a wooden stir stick, tea bag, etc..., (nothing metal).


General Electric's Response:

Thanks for contacting us, I will be happy to assist you. The e-mail that you received is correct. Microwaved water and other liquids do not always bubble when they reach the boiling point. They can actually get superheated and not bubble at all. The superheated liquid will bubble up out of the cup when it is moved or when something like a spoon or tea bag is put into it.

To prevent this from happening and causing injury, do not heat any liquid for more than two minutes per cup. After heating, let the cup stand in the microwave for thirty seconds! Before moving it or adding anything into it.

Here is what our local science teacher had to say on the matter: 'Thanks for the microwave warning. I have seen this happen before. It is caused by a phenomenon known as super heating It can occur anytime water is heated and will particularly occur if the vessel that the water is heated in is new, or when heating a small amount of water (less than half a cup).

What happens is that the water heats faster than the vapor bubbles can form. If the cup is very new then it is unlikely to have small surface scratches inside it that provide a place for the bubbles to form. As the bubbles cannot form and release some of the heat has built up, the liquid does not boil, and the liquid continues to heat up well past its boiling point.

What then usually happens is that the liquid is bumped or jarred, which is just enough of a shock to cause the bubbles to rapidly form and expel the hot liquid. The rapid formation of bubbles is also why a carbonated beverage spews when opened after having been shaken.'


If you pass this on you could very well save someone from a lot of pain and suffering.

 DID YOU KNOW?
 

(Note the bit on clothes dryer filters at the end!!!)

Take your bananas apart when you get home from the store.   
If you leave them connected at the stem, they ripen faster.    


Store your opened chunks of cheese in aluminum foil.   
It will stay fresh much longer and not mold!  
   
Peppers with 3 bumps on the bottom are sweeter and better for eating.   
Peppers with 4 bumps on the bottom are firmer and better for cooking.


Add a teaspoon of water when frying ground beef.   
It will help pull the grease away from the meat while cooking.
 
To really make scrambled eggs or omelets rich add a couple of   
Spoonfuls of sour cream, cream cheese, or heavy cream; then beat them.   

Add garlic immediately to a recipe if you want a light taste   
Of garlic and at the end of the recipe if your want a stronger taste of garlic.   



Reheat Pizza   
Heat leftover pizza in a nonstick skillet on top of the stove; set heat to med-low  
And heat till warm. This keeps the crust crispy. No soggy micro pizza. I saw this on   the food channel and it really works. 




Easy Deviled Eggs   
Put cooked egg yolks in a zip lock bag. Seal; mash till they are all broken up Add remainder of ingredients, reseal, keep mashing it up mixing thoroughly, cut the tip of the baggy; squeeze mixture into egg. Just throw bag away when done - easy clean up.    

Reheating refrigerated bread   
To warm biscuits, pancakes, or muffins that were refrigerated, place them in   
A microwave next to a cup of water. The increased moisture will keep the food  
Moist and help it reheat faster.   


Newspaper weeds away   
Start putting torn newspaper in your plants, work the nutrients in your soil. Wet newspapers,   
Put layers around the plants, overlapping as you go; cover with mulch and forget about weeds. Weeds will get through some gardening plastic; they will not   get through wet newspapers.   
?  


Broken Glass   
Use a wet cotton ball or Q-tip to pick up the small shards of glass you can't see easily.   



Flexible vacuum   
To get something out of a heat register or under the fridge add an empty paper towel   roll or empty gift wrap roll to your vacuum. It can be bent or flattened to get in narrow openings.   



Reducing Static Cling   
Pin a small safety pin to the seam of your slip and you will not have a clingy skirt or dress. Same thing works with slacks that cling when wearing panty hose. Place pin in seam of slacks and ... Ta DA! ... Static is gone.  



Measuring Cups   
Before you pour sticky substances into a measuring cup, fill with hot water.  
Dump out the hot water, but don't dry cup. Next, add your ingredient (peanut butter, honey, etc.) and watch how easily it comes right out.   


Foggy Windshield? 
Hate foggy windshields? Buy a chalkboard eraser and keep it in the glove box of your car When the windows fog, rub with the eraser!
 
Works better than a cloth!   

Reopening envelope   
If you seal an envelope and then realize you forgot to include something inside 
Just place your sealed envelope in the freezer for an hour or two. Viola! It unseals easily.  
  


Conditioner   
Use your hair conditioner to shave your legs. It's cheaper than shaving cream and leaves your legs really smooth. It's also a great way to use up the conditioner you bought but didn't like when you tried it in your hair.  
  


Goodbye Fruit Flies   
To get rid of pesky fruit flies, take a small glass, fill it 1/2 with Apple Cider Vinegar  
And 2 drops of dish washing liquid; mix well. You will find those flies drawn to the cup and gone forever!  




Get Rid of Ants   
Put small piles of cornmeal where you see ants. They eat it, take it 'home,' can't digest it so it kills them. It may take a week or so, especially if it rains, but it works and you don't have the worry about pets or small children being harmed!  



INFO ABOUT CLOTHES DRYERS 
The heating unit went out on my dryer! The gentleman that fixes things around the house for us told us that he wanted to show us something and he went over to the dryer and pulled out the lint filter. It was clean. (I always clean the lint from the filter after every load of clothes.) He took the filter over to the sink and ran hot water over it. The lint filter is made of a mesh material . I'm sure you know what your dryer's lint filter looks like. Well .... the hot water just sat on top of the mesh! It didn't go through it at all! He told us  
that dryer sheets cause a film over that mesh - that's what burns out the heating unit.  
You can't  
SEE the film, but it's there. It's what is in the dryer sheets to make your  
clothes soft and static free. You know how they can feel waxy when you take them out of the box ... well this stuff builds up on your clothes and on your lint screen. This is also what causes dryer units to potentially burn your  
house down with it! He said the best way to keep your dryer working for a very long time (and to keep your electric bill lower) is to take that filter out and wash it with hot soapy water and an old toothbrush at least every six months.  
He said that increases the life of the dryer at least twice as long! How about that!?!  
Learn something new everyday! I certainly didn't know dryer sheets would do that. So, I thought I'd share!  

Note: I went to my dryer and tested my screen by running water on it. The water ran through a little bit but mostly collected all the water in the mesh screen. I washed it with warm soapy water and a nylon brush and I had it done in 30 seconds. Then when  
I rinsed it ... the water ran right thru the screen! There wasn't any puddling at all! That repairman knew what he was talking about!
 
 
Now that you're back from checking the lint screen,  PLEASE PASS THIS ON TO OTHERS!
