To all the Moms in San Carlos, and the entire world, let us take time to thank you for life, love, laughter, and guidance in our paths of life. We dedicate this one day to you, only as a reminder for what we forget to say everyday; for to often do we get caught up in lifes routines to take the time to pay our gratitude towards our loving mothers. Weather your sons/daughters are present in life today, your no less a mother than anyone else. To the mothers that abuse their children, and do not know how to raise children, it is never too late to turn life around. Our children are the future, and our mothers are the creators of the future, make the future loving and brighter.

Happy mothers day, today, and 364 more days, every year.

Regarding crime in the area (or any area in a specified perimeter), I recommend signing up for email alerts at crimemapping.com. You can see what crimes happen within a mile of your residence. Useful website for those that want to keep a better neighborhood watch :)

It's too bad San Carlos seems to be having an increase in crime. We have to keep our eyes open and let the low lifes know this is our home and we will take care of San Carlos. If you can't respect others then go back to the gutter where you came from.

50 years of good neighbors.

Western end of Jackie Dr at Coleshill Dr just celebrated 50 years of joy.

Attached is a picture of the original homeowners who still live in the cul de sac.

There was food, drink, games and even a little bit of illegal fireworks thrown in.

Mayor? We don need no stinkin' mayor! In bucolic San Carlos, our little corner of the world, we are fortunate to have two long-standing mayors-in-residence. Barbara Cleves Anderson keeps us apprised of All Things Lake Murray and is a tireless advocate for both people and wildlife who seek solace in the peace and comfort that our lake brings. And John Pilch is the glue that continues to hold this community together -- silently (and humbly) volunteering endless hours "behind the scenes" to try and provide a yearly fireworks show, keep crime down, and set the standard we can all follow to be good neighbors and citizens. Come on over, folks, and enjoy our very own version of Mayberry...climb Cowles Mountain, watch the plant and wildlife at the lake grow and blossom, and get to know some of the natives.
