How to Take Screenshots in Mac OS X

I have been a Windows user ever since Windows 95 came out, and it wasn’t up until this past May (2010) that I decided to make the switch to Macs; it wasn’t really hard to adapt from one OS to the other.

Juts took pictures at the entrance, but enough of the “talking” and now, with the photos….a picture is worth a thousand words…

Prairie Creek Park, Beaver Lake

Me and some friends visited Prairie Creek Park/Beaver Lake in NW Arkansas, the place is really nice and the lake is huge.

There is a part of the lake designated to go swim, but we didn’t get a change to get into the water this time, next time we’ll make sure to take the appropriate clothing :).
