Wordsmith.org Forums General Topics Q&A about words The windmills of my mind
Anyone who has had any connection with the US Navy would immediately think of Rota, Spain, which at one time was a major port of call for US warships doing Med cruises. To tell you the truth I don't know if Rota is the full name of a city or some other geographical landmark. But my dictionary shows it as an island of the west Pacific in the Southern Marianas Islands, north of Guam.
Interestingly enough, we seem to have a lot of immigrants from Rota here in the US. Almost every small town I visit has a sign at the outskirts proclaiming the date and time of the meetings of the Rotarians. Don't know whether that's Rota, Spain or the one in the Pacific.
