I stumbled across this interesting book called “The Tramp’s Handbook”, that was written in England in 1903 by Harry Roberts. Full of fascinating folklore for living the tramp’s life from back in the day, that’s still very applicable today.

wicked thanks ! I really enjoy reading stuff from the history of tramps in UK because that's like my history and I usually have to just adapt Americanized texts for my own use.

I'm a graff artist so of course i was interested in their scrawl's and they even had their own hobo sign's like our American cousin's.
Read up and you'll see shit hasnt really changed re persecution of vagabond's/homeless/the poor....and i'm betting the workshouse's arent too far away from making a come back..they'll be big business i'm sure.

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $20.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $20.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $20.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $20.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
