Yes, Camsue, I've been through Nice. Not real nice, as in, a city with a nice Kmart and Kentucky Fried Chicken place in the mall; just sorta nice, as in you can look out at Clear Lake and listen to the nice frogs at night.

Melvin is in Fresno County, at the corner of Shaw and Clovis Avenues; today just a part of Clovis. When driving past, make sure you yell, "Hi, Melvin!"

Quail Valley, Riverside County, was a former city. Together with Sun City and Menifee, it incorproated as . . . Menifee. Sorry, women, they didn't name it Womenifee.

Trevarno, appears to be a railroad siding just east of Livermore, Alameda County. I've been by it (E. First Street) but it is unrecognizable now as a separate entity in the Livermore sprawl.
