Parrot Sense: by John Doole (Author)
Parrot Sense: by John Doole (Author) (9781895270143)

How to protect your bird from aviculturists, nutritionists, and the merely expert! Filled with practical advice on birdkeeping. Refreshingly original and funny. 

"These days we see the publications of more and more specialist parrot titles, ie, those covering one group, such as cockatoos, or one aspect, such as hand-rearing. The more specialized a title, the less space it usually devotes to the basics of parrot keeping. Many of these basics had to be learned the hard way - and the birds were the losers. But this wonderful book from the often - amusing pen of John Doole concentrates almost totally on the basics with a text which is liberally sprinkled with delightful an witty sketches. Not only is it fun to read - it sis completely filled with practical l advice with coverage of each subject (from which kind o water to give your birds to ringing chicks) which is perhaps more thorough than than contained in any other parrot book I have read. Neither does it suffer from hackneyed repetition; it is refreshingly original.

Many parrots are destined to benefit from this book at a time when it is increasingly important than high standards of care should become universal for captive parrots, many of which are threatened with extinction in the wild." -- Foreword by Rosemary Low , Gran Canaria 1992.

    The Robber Church Paperback: by Patrick Henry Omlor (Author)
    The Robber Church Paperback: by Patrick Henry Omlor (Author) (9781895270204)
    Patrick Omlor questioned the validity of the form of consecration in the Mass of Paul VI. His argument centered on the replacement of the Latin "Pro multis" ("for many") with the English "for all" in the rite of consecration, arguing that a deviation from the earlier wording resulted in the new Mass not constituting a proper sacrifice.

    About the Author


     

    Patrick Henry Omlor (June 13, 1931 – May 2, 2013) was born of Catholic parents, Joseph Peter Omlor and Helen Anastasia Omlor (née Kochan), on June 13, 1931, in Amarillo, Texas. After finishing primary school at St. Mary's Academy, Amarillo, he entered Price Memorial College, a high school in Amarillo conducted by the Brothers of the Christian Schools (F.S.C.).  At the age of thirteen, in the middle of his freshman year, he was accepted at the F.S.C. Preparatory Novitiate in Glencoe, Missouri.  Five years later he commenced his studies in the F.S.C. Scholasticate at St. Mary's College in Winona, Minnesota, where he received a Bachelor of Science degree in mathematics, graduating summa cum laude.  While at St. Mary's he was introduced to the Summa Theologica of St. Thomas Aquinas and learned how to study it and appreciate its incomparable importance and value.

    For more than eight years Omlor benefited from the sound spiritual direction and the excellent religious and secular education provided by the Christian Brothers, blessings for which he will always be grateful.  But he came to realize that the religious state was not his true vocation and he left the F.S.C. Congregation in 1953.  Over the next eleven years, he taught mathematics at several Catholic institutions in Louisiana and California and at the Franciscan Sisters' College of St. Joseph on the Rio Grande in Albuquerque, New Mexico, (which unfortunately was later renamed the University of Albuquerque).  In 1956, while at the College of St. Joseph, he married Mary Victoria Adelo.

    Following upon his career as a teacher, Mr. Omlor next became a staff mathematician at Stanford Research Institute in Menlo Park, California, where he remained until late 1972. In early 1973 he arrived in Perth, Western Australia, accompanied by his wife and their three sons and seven daughters.  Until his retirement in 1993, he held the position of Operations Research Practitioner at the Western Australian Division of the Pittsburgh-based Aluminium Company of America.


    From the very beginning, Omlor understood that the English vernacular version of the Canon of the Mass (introduced in the USA on Oct 22, 1967) rendered the sacrament invalid, & he was the first to compose a competent study on the issue, thankfully, all 21 of Omlor’s writings are available in this 392-page volume covering the his Writings (1968-1997).
