Are you trying to figure out how to cook pumpkin seeds? Well, you are in luck because in this post I have given you some simple pumpkin seed recipes so you can learn how to make pumpkin seeds for a great snack!

Before you cook the pumpkin seeds you want to prepare them. Here are some pumpkin seed preparation tips:

* Clean the pumpkin seeds by running them under water for about 10-15 seconds.

* If you want your pumpkin seeds to have a stronger and saltier flavor it’s best to boil them in salted water and let them simmer for 10 minutes or so.

* If you want to eat the pumpkin seeds whole (shell and all), it’s recommended that you use sugar pumpkins instead of the larger carving pumpkins that most of us are familiar with.

Now here are some pumpkin seed recipes and cooking methods…

Oven Roasted Pumpkin Seeds:

1) Pre-heat your oven to 300 degrees.
2) Drop the pumpkin seeds in a bowl with olive oil, butter, or margin. For a lower-fat version, skip the oil and butter, and just use cooking spray on the baking pan.
3) Place the pumpkin seeds in a single layer on an oven safe dish or baking pan.
4) Lightly sprinkle salt over the pumpkin seeds.
5) Bake pumpkin seeds for about 35 minutes, or until they begin to turn brown. Stir every 10 minutes or so.

Skillet Roasted Pumpkin Seeds:

1) Heat 1-2 tablespoons of butter, or cooking oil, in a skillet, or frying pan on medium heat.
2) As oil becomes hot, stir in pumpkin seeds.
3) Stir and flip as the pumpkin seeds cook. Don’t cook the pumpkin seeds longer than 5 minutes.
4) When the seeds are nicely roasted and browned, remove them from the skillet. Place them on a paper towel to drain the oil.
5) Season or flavor your pumpkin seeds as desired.
6) Let cool for 5-10 minutes.

Microwave Pumpkin Seeds:

1) Melt two tablespoons of butter in a microwave safe bowl.
2) Place a cup and a half of pumpkin seeds into the bowl; make sure they’re in a single layer.
3) Sprinkle pumpkin seeds with seasoning or flavoring as desired.
4) Microwave for approximately 8 minutes. Check pumpkin seeds and stir every 2 minutes.
5) When they are a golden brown remove them from the microwave, lay them out on a paper towel, or some wax paper.
6) Let cool for 5 minutes, and enjoy your delicious pumpkin seed snack.

And that, my friends, is how to cook pumpkin seeds. Also, remember that pumpkin seeds will typically keep for around a week. So you can snack on them for about a week or so.

Are you asking yourself, how do I talk dirty to my boyfriend? If so, you are definitely not alone! There are thousands of girls wondering how to talk to dirty to their boyfriends right now. So, in this post I am going to give you some tips that will get you well on your way to talking dirty to your boyfriend.

Has this happened to you…

You and your boyfriend are in messing around in bed and he says, “Talk dirty to me!”

Wow! Now what do you do? You could get up and run out of the room but that’s not gonna help your relationship at all. You could quickly change the subject but that will probably ruin the mood and annoy him. Or you could say something dirty back to him that will get him super excited and ready to go!

Knowing what to say is the key to talking dirty. It comes from being comfortable with yourself, knowing what your partner wants and being well informed on the subject of dirty talk.

The first thing you want to remember is that talking dirty to your boyfriend isn’t something you just do at any time. You want it to be at the right moment when your boyfriend is in the mood or when you want to get him in the mood. Don’t talk dirty just because you thought it sounded fun to do. If dirty talk isn’t done right then it could kill the mood and maybe even cause problems in your sex life.

Many women want to know what the best way to talk dirty to my boyfriend or husband is. They want to know what to say and when to say it. Well, the truth is that there are a lot of great ways to talk dirty to your boyfriend. The best place is obviously in bed when things are starting to heat up or when you are already going hot and heavy. A couple other good places are in the shower or in a public place where he really might not be expecting it.

Next you want to remember that whether you’re saying something sensual and sexy, making a dirty comment, or sharing a fantasy or fetish, you don’t want your dirty talk to sound forced. Just share the sexual thoughts that pop into your head rather than trying to think of something good to say. And you don’t need to talk dirty to your boyfriend the entire session or every time you’re having sex or messing around.

If you’re nervous about talking dirty you can always start by saying something simple a few times to get the feel for it and calm your nerves. Tell your boyfriend that you like the way he’s touching you or tell him something you like that he does. Compliment something he does sexually or tell him what you want him to do to you. You will probably find that telling him your desires and what you like will end up making the sex much more enjoyable and intense for you and your boyfriend.

If you really just can’t think of anything to say you can always let him take the lead by asking what he wants to do to you or what you should do to him. Guys are usually more than willing to give some direction and talk dirty. Then all you have to do is follow his lead and respond with some dirty talk of your own. After a few sessions like this you will have mastered how to talk dirty to your boyfriend.

Here are some more things to keep in mind if you are timid or shy about talking dirty to your boyfriend:

* Don’t be nervous about it because only you and your boyfriend can hear you and he will love it.

* The more comfortable you get, the better you will be. Just let go of your shyness. Your sex life with your boyfriend should be hot and spicy.

* If you think you are a “good girl” and shouldn’t do things like talk dirty then remember that it has nothing to do with you being good or bad. It’s simply making your sex life more fulfilling for both you and your boyfriend.

* Talking dirty to your boyfriend will make him hornier and want you even more. This is especially true if he asked for it. And it will probably make you feel sexier and hornier because you are seeing your boyfriend enjoy himself more from your dirty talk.

* Making love is best when you totally let go and give yourself to the other person. Learning how to talk dirty and doing it for your boyfriend is part of making sex a more joyful experience for both of you.

Now you know how to talk dirty to your boyfriend. It’s time to try it out! The next time he asks you to talk dirty you will be ready and willing. Or you could just surprise him the next time you two are having a little adult play time. He will love you for it and you will find your sex life getting even better.

The Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms (ATF) agency stopped an Obama assassination attempt. They disrupted a skinhead plot to assassinate Barack Obama.

An assassination attempt on Barack Obama was stopped by the federal Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF) agency. The plot was to on kill Barack Obama and 102 other black people… 14 by decapitation and shoot 88 more. Apparently the numbers 88 and 14 are symbolic in the white supremacist community.

Authorities said the two white supremacists allegedly plotted to go on a killing spree, shooting and decapitating black people and ending it by killing Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama.

The spree, which initially targeted an unidentified predominantly African-American school, was to end with the two men driving toward Obama and “shooting at him from the windows,” the court documents show.

Two suspects arrested were Daniel Cowart, 20, of Bells, Tennessee and Paul Schlesselman 18, of Helena-West Helena, Arkansas.

They were charged by federal authorities Monday with possessing an unregistered firearm, conspiring to steal firearms from a federally licensed gun dealer, and threatening a presidential candidate.

Cowart and Schlesselman are being held without bond. Agents seized a rifle, a sawed-off shotgun and three pistols from the men when they were arrested. Authorities alleged the two men were preparing to break into a gun shop to steal more.

Luckily they were unable to carry out this Obama assassination attempt and the rest of their plot!

Have you ever wondered what’s packed underneath the PlayStation 3 (PS3) console’s sleek jet black design? Now’s your chance to take a peek for yourself!

The PlayStation 3 Console’s Cell Microprocessor, with its streamlined design, is perhaps the hardware’s most important artificial brain, the strength in floating point kernels, as of today, is still unrivaled. The brainchild of STI (Sony, Toshiba and IBM), it is the newest microprocessor technology and it allows data flow on several instances. For example; when one core is exclusively guiding the main sprite, the other core for the environmental special effects and another core could work to deliver the most realistic ballistics on projectiles. The PlayStation 3 console’s cell microprocessor engine is clocked at 3.2GHz having 1PPE and 7SPEs

The Blu-ray Media Format – the technology Blu-ray has already been licensed by Sony, meaning their games will be running on optical drives that support this cutting edge format as well as DVD and VCD formats. This is needed for a system so intricate in detail that it has been rumored that Metal Gear Solid 4 not only takes visuals as experience but also the other senses. Sonic booms from nearby explosions are among the added factor. And for that a Blu-ray technology with its storage capacity of 50GB is needed.

The RSX GPU (Reality Synthesizer, Graphics Processing Unit) definitely plays a more critical role in the Sony PlayStation 3 game experience. This RSX GPU is co-developed by NVIDIA for Sony, and NVIDIA, whose familiarity in making graphics chips is well established and deserves an acclaim for bringing realistic cutting edge graphics of PlayStation 3 console titles such as Fight Night: Round 3.

The Online Experience with the PlayStation 3 console has also been equipped to deliver the ever increasing demands of online gaming, with its PlayStation Network. It is a free service where every PlayStation 3 console gets to connect automatically. And whether it is for online gaming using the Xfire Client or just downloading media and demos from the community site, all is there for just the reason of a functionality that allows users to choose a game of their preference as well as a preview of the next big game. Another perk of the site is the availability of past PlayStation titles (1 & 2) for download prices around $10 – $15 each.

All these new technologies made the Sony PlayStation 3 console well ahead of the competition. Perhaps another line will be written next time but at this moment, the Xbox 360 just really can’t compete, much less the Wii, with the PlayStation 3 (PS3) console. It’s fairly expensive compared to the other two but that’s expected, and the price will surely come down. And a great part of having a PlayStation 3 console is the already present crop of good games available.
