    As someone who has suffered from A.S. for over 50 years I am always happy to see anything about it on the net or anywhere. Mind you be being rather lazy by nature I find the site just too long to read through it all. Keep up the good work.

      Thank you Fred. I appreciate your feedback. I have had AS for over 30 years and it is always good to hear from a fellow ASer. Are you familiar with my other site, http://www.Spondyville.com? The Haikulodeon site and the nature of haikus in general, lets you read as much as you want and then come back later and read some more.
