Welcome to the
Crohn's Disease
Ulcerative Colitis
Inflammatory Bowel Disease

Yet one more place on the WWW for those of us living with these diseases, and our families and friends, to find information, solace, and encouragement.

Our goal is to provide a convenient, one-stop shopping site for FAQs, links to other sources, and anything else we can find (or that you suggest.) No particular axes to grind, beyond the idea that suffering shared is suffering lessened.

In case it's not obvious, these pages are not actively maintained anymore. So there are lots of orphaned links, and the information on many of the working links is outdated. Still, if you're curious about what the web looked like 20+ years ago, this is a pretty good snapshot.

woohoo!We're 21 YEARS OLD! (We're legal!) That's positively archaic by WWW standards.

BILLIONS and BILLIONS (probably trillions by now) of bytes served to the IBD Community on the WWW since October, 1994.

And now, for something completely different...

Exclusive (hah!) photos of Major League Baseball's 1999 AllStar Game at Boston's Fenway Park.

Take a look at some photographs of mine. They have nothing to do with diseases of any kind. They are, however, pleasant to look at, which is reason enough in my mind to include them here.
Star One of them even won the Grand Prize in a photo contest sponsored by businesses of Estes Park, CO.

Here are 1995's pictures. We took another trip to Estes Park and Rocky Mountain National Park. I didn't take quite so many pictures this time (17 rolls instead of 25) because the Aspen hadn't turned yet, and it rained a lot of the time we were there, when it wasn't snowing. So I didn't get to do many of the trails I'd planned on. Eventually I figured out that the challenge was to see the picture that was there, and get it, rather than crab about the picture I wanted to take that wasn't there.

And there are more photos from 1996, 1997, 1998, 1999, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005, and 2006. New

These pages are (very occasionally) maintained by Bill Robertson, and brought to you and the rest of the WWW on an Apple 1.42 GHz Mac Mini PowerPC G4 running Mac OS Classic in OS X 10.4.10. Yes, I know, it's all horribly outdated--antique, even--but it's all paid for and runs just fine (most of the time), thank you very much.
