What happens when an unlikely threesome is thrown together by circumstance? Fate intervenes and three lives are changed forever. Danny Simon, a 13 year old Jewish refugee, lost his entire family in Poland to the Holocaust. Now he must adapt to a new life in America -- with an aunt and uncle he never met. It is not easy for him. Images of his horrifying ordeal often come to visit him at night. And he must contend with neighborhood bullies. But his life takes a turn in a different direction when he tries to rescue a wounded pigeon. That’s when he meets Mike Delaney; a man whose past is filled with secrets. And so, a Jewish refugee, a battle weary war veteran, and a wounded pigeon form an unlikely bond. Together they will learn valuable lessons from one another. And together they must find a way to heal old wounds. Only then can they begin life anew.

Marius Kociejowski follows up his now classic The Street Philosopher and the Holy Fool with The Pigeon Wars of Damascus. A metaphysical journalist in search of echoes rather than analogies, hints as opposed to verities, Kociejowski discovers once again at the periphery of Damascene society—for the outcast is often made of the very thing that rejects him—a way to understand the challenges and changes refashioning post-9/11 Syria and the Middle East, reminding us once again of the deeper purpose of travel: to absorb and understand the spirit of a place, and to return changed.

It Comes Down To Wanting Something was written when my husband and I lived in Manlius, New York. Lindsay went to work for Philips Electronics as a senior RF engineer. The company had two major problems, which Lindsay found very difficult to accept: Ponderous executive meetings at the drop of a hat and computer mania. Everything had to be entered into the computer and hand calculations were not acceptable. Each morning, when he left for work, I went pounding into the computer room, pulled up a blank “Word” page and started writing at a rapid fire pace. I never stopped! It took me a year to write this book and it was something “treasured” I had always wanted! A journey I had always planned to take. At the end of the year my husband was a computer savvy engineer and I had a copyright, on this book in 1994. I hope you enjoy my heart; I’ve left it on every page for you! Each and every one of you! Reclaim your spirit! Pick up your unfinished dreams and never quit!

Jim Emerton bred and raced birds for 40 years and had birds return to the loft from as far as 879 miles away. Now in retirement from active racing, he devotes his time and energies to sharing his experiences, his observations and his expertise with the rest of the fancy. Here in one volume is a comprehensive collection of his thoughts about pigeons and pigeon racing, ranging from short pieces originally written for the leading fanciers? magazines to full-length articles and interviews. What unites us in principle is the common good of the sport, and with this in mind I do what I can for others ? it all oils the cogs of the sport. Some will see me as a know-all, yet I am a quiet little man making my mark, that's all. What is true is that I have made a life study of pigeons, and as a teacher I like to impart knowledge and experience? My aim is purely to tell it as it is to me, and if this is illuminating to others, then so be it.?

- Over 16,000 pigeons were dropped into occupied Europe during the Second World War. Some were used by secret agents to send messages back to headquarters. Others were dropped by parachute into France, Belgium, Holland and Denmark in the hope that people would complete the attached questionnaire and provided military, political, economic or other intelligence of value for the Allies. There were also requests for information on the reception and content of the BBC Overseas Service news. Many messages sent back requests that the BBC acknowledge receipt of the message. This book investigates the work of MI14, known as the Colomba Service, and for the first time sheds light on conditions in Occupied Europe described by extremely brave men and women who risked execution if found in possession of a pigeon. MI14 staff, decoded or translated messages and forwarded copies to SOE, SIS, MI19, War Office, RAF, Royal Navy, Ministry of Economic Warfare, Churchill, de Gaulle and the BBC,
