This year, I decided to take my pumpkin carving to the next level by making use of the pumpkin seeds. It was easier than I thought. All I had to do was separate the seeds from the pulp after emptying out the pumpkin. Here is the rest of it…

Add some butter and salt to the seeds and stir. Bake the seeds for another 20 minutes or until they look golden and crispy. Be careful, they are addictive!

I recently attended UX Week 2011, a user experience design conference. Design professionals from all over the world gathered for four days of community, inspiration and skills building.

We like to keep these things close to our heart no matter what happens or where we might be. These special items make us feel at home, that’s why we decorate our homes and offices with pictures and other small reminders of who we are and what we love.

This year’s fireworks show was quite spectacular. My family and I decided to go to the Germantown 4th of July celebration. Since this yearly event is so popular, we decided not to go all the way into the main park but settle down on the grassy area nearby.
