It's so weird to hear "rodola" pronounced like this ("rodòla" instead of "rodolà" - with an accent on the last "a"). The funny story behind all this, I think, is because the Italian alphabet has 5 accented vowels (àèìòù) but the english/american alphabet doesn't, so I like to picture in my head our first ancestor who came to US as a poor guy disembarking from a big ship after a 2-months travel, with few clothes, no money, hungry as hell, giving his details to some kind of officer who said "mr. rodolà? no way buddy! from now on you'll be known as "mr. rodola" and if you don't like it feel free to get back to Italy!". :D
BTW, I'm an Italian relative, glad to see you healthy and smiling Joe!
