I have owned parakeets (also called budgies or keets) since I was a tiny toddler. I have photos of my pregnant-with-me-mom's parakeet (named Gandalf), so she owned parakeets even before I was born. Sometimes I've had four parakeets, sometimes just one, but in one way or another parakeets manage to wiggle their fluffy ways into my heart. This book is a compilation of my years of experience, not only with my own parakeets, but also with helping the tens of thousands of parakeet-loving visitors who come to my parakeet forum. Between the group of us we've probably experienced everything there is that could happen to a keet, good or bad. There is information on choosing a parakeet, feeding a parakeet, and full step by step instructions on hand training your parakeet. You can learn about parakeet activities, parakeet toys, and parakeet socialization. While the web is of course an awesome resource, often there are times that it's simply easier to read an organized, sequential set of instructions on an e-reader. Also, it seems that web access goes down during emergency situations! Having an ebook version of those "what to do" instructions available on your e-reader has saved many a keet owner. Think of it as part of your emergency care kit for your beloved pet. If you have any questions, always feel free to email me! I'm happy to lend a hand with keets. Enjoy!

A darkly comic novel of disintegration, betrayal and revenge. 'Great flocks of emerald budgies are flying through my brain . . .' Ruth is in a state. The kind of state where you might put a hedgehog under the wheel before reversing, or pull on rubber underwear before running drugs to a colleague. Things aren't going to get any better till the memory she's been avoiding floods back into her mind - and after that, they'll get a lot worse.
This book is sectioned into four categories that form themes for the poems. Love, Inspiration, Humour, and Reflection are all elements of human existence that the writer believes to be crucial; hence the decision to write poems based on these themes and to section the book accordingly. The book has a very personal appeal. The tone that is carried throughout is one that addresses the reader in an intimate manner. The writer speaks directly to his audience in the hope of tapping into their emotions. He also seeks to offer an inspiring message to the ailing soul, encourage persons to look back when they are forgetting what really matters in life, and bring laughter to those who might need a break from an all too serious existence. There is something special for everyone in this wonderful collectable item. The poems take each person into consideration and the themes that are addressed will undoubtedly be significant to them. The beautiful verses are accompanied by a collection of stunning pictures that were also taken by the writer. These visually tantalizing photos of interesting images taken all over Jamaica and other parts of the world bear relevance to each poem. The book therefore makes an ideal gift item for the lover of impressive words or amazing pictures. Readers will return to those poems which were most touching; each time finding new meaning.
