Did you know Melbourne, Florida, was actually named after Melbourne, Victoria?

However they make a bigger thing out of it than we do, and quite rightly so.

A quick check shows that Melbourne itself gets mentioned a lot in this blog. 70 posts in fact.

Can't get better than this.

But this is one of my faves. (pics)

It is mobius you cannot cross the road to chicken out, or for any other foul reason, when cooped up on the only side.
Sorry, I clicked on to the wrong link for florida.
