  1. Susan and my dog Lexie says

    Safe seas to you, Roz, and may the weather hold up for you, as well!

  2. Rox & Roz. Twin inspirational spirits separated by a consonant.
    Reminds me of the “chicken pimples” I got when Daredevil appeared in a Spiderman comic book and vice versa many years ago. And when my Raiders played my Buccaneers in Super Bowl XXXVII. Similarly, I’ve been a fan of Rox & Roz separately, so seeing their interaction doubles the jolt of “I gotta get productive today, now!” Big Positive Vibes to you both.

  3. AWE-some. It’s so great to see both of you talking and sharing ideas. A destined interview, and excellent interview, to be sure.

    So inspiring to hear Roz tell her story.
    I am so thankful for this.

  4. Just for those who may not have had the chance to follow Roz on her second leg of rowing the Pacific — from Honolulu, Hawaii to Tarawa in the South Pacific — she is about 10 miles away from landing! She is due to arrive Tarawa Sunday morning, 7:30 a.m. local time, should the winds and currents continue in her favor. See up-to-the-minute coverage at her website:
