Street Names

It is not unusual in the UK to name streets after people. The are plenty of Roads named after monarchs. Staying here in Palm Desert, a close neighbour of the more famous Palm Springs, the street signs look odd, because they bear names of people far more recent than English street names.

I am staying in a house just off a road that runs parallel to Bob Hope. To get here from the freeway we crossed Gerald Ford Drive and Dinah Shore Drive. Our plans for tomorrow will take us across Frank Sinatra Drive.
