Every year, my husband and I make the trek from L.A. to Phoenix. It's a long trip, and we're always on the lookout for something to break up the trip. This year we found an absolute gem of a restaurant: Dish Creative Cuisine, in a nondescript strip mall in Cathedral City. Nevertheless, the service is fine dining, with white linen tablecloths and an attentive staff. Amuse-bouche is the star of the show. Throughout our dinner, including appetizers, entrees and desserts, our waiters continually brought these little masterpieces to our table.

It's understandable that car insurance rates can change when you move. One neighborhood might have more accidents or burglaries than another. But health insurance? Joan Swope, 62, moved recently from Cathedral City, just down the road from Palm Springs, to nearby Palm Desert. She informed her insurer, Anthem Blue Cross, of the change of address. A few weeks later, Anthem responded with a notice stating that, because of the move, Swope's monthly premium on her individual policy will increase to $524 from $418.

I discovered La Bella Roma, a family-operated restaurant tucked in a corner of a strip mall off Ramon Road in Cathedral City (near Palm Springs). The correct use of herbs makes it a pleasure to try the spaghetti, mostaccioli, rigatoni or linguine. La Bella Roma, 68-100 Ramon Road, Suite C-2, Cathedral City; (760) 202-8181; entrees from about $10. Sheppa Vanderkleij Indio

A sour note Re "Dudamel's great, but he's not the whole show," Opinion, Oct. 12 Thank you Gregory Rodriguez. Before your article, I was a naive, middle-aged white guy who thought Gustavo Dudamel was hired because he is talented, energetic, charismatic and would be great for Los Angeles. In other words, he was hired on his merits. I thought that other cities were trying to hire him -- you know, like I saw on "60 Minutes" and several recent TV specials.

I travel vicariously every Sunday in your section, and July 5's was a pageant of color. The cover and inside images of the Faroe Islands, Lake Casitas and the buffalo roundup in Utah were delightfully bright. It looks as if the latest in color printing technique has reached the Travel section, which is the proper place for top-notch scenics. Thanks. Lou Jacobs Jr. Cathedral City
