Bio

I believe that World History is a reflection of the thoughts, actions and words, of Human Beings. Therefore, I have chosen to be a positive addition to History. And, I strive to live a non- violent (ahimsa) and empowering way of life. [However, I'm not a saint/far from perfect].

An idea worth spreading

15 times, I have cycled 7 days, 575 miles, from San Francisco to Los Angeles in a cycling charity event called AIDSLifecycle. In route to Los Angeles, I (and 2,000 of my best friends) cycle thru Montecito, CA. ( Montecito is the home to Oprah Winfrey).

Each Year, the locals of Montecito – Santa Barbara gather and create their own “Paradise Pit Stop” for the approx. 2,000 AIDSLifecycle Cyclist & 400 Volunteer Crew members. There you can find: chocolate bars, organic strawberries, vegan ice cream, corn dogs, Twinkies, coco cola, massages, and then some.. … ALL YOU CAN EAT …GRATIS!

Years ago (as I ate my strawberries and homemade ice cream), I asked several Montecito residents: “Where is Oprah?” - http://ynottony.com/ynot/oprah-winfrey/

I'm passionate about

15 times, I have cycled 575 miles (from S.F to L.A.) in an AIDS Fundraiser bike event titled AIDS/Lifecycle . And 15 times, I have done the right thing - http://www.tofighthiv.org/goto/ynottony

Josette Sheeran: Ending hunger now
Right on Josette Sheeran! "Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired, signifies in the final sense a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed." - Dwight D. Eisenhower - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bj73XhIBkL0

Dan Pallotta: The way we think about charity is dead wrong
Mr. Dan Pallotta, First & Foremost, from the deepest part of my heart- I THANK YOU! Your vision of California AIDS Ride saved my life. You see, in 1994, I was a cocaine addict. Upon realizing my addiction, I decided I need to create a new life - I needed something "to tell the grandchildren. And then, I read a flyer for California AIDS Ride #2. And I said to myself, "I can do this - "I'M Possible." Since that time, I have used exercise to move me into a better & healthier lifestyle. And since 1994, I have now completed 15 California AIDS Ride / AIDS/Lifecycle Events. I have become an Iyengar Yoga Teacher. And last year, I ran the San Francisco Marathon. And it all started with the seeds "YOU" planted. From the bottom of my heart - I THANK YOU! You are a GREAT MAN! - Keep doing what you do BEST! - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ej7A7jgoX_4
