Or, the night the lights went out in El Lago. We had just started dinner I was gonna get some fries to cook with my chicken nuggets. As I reached into my freezer Wham!!! A big Clapping noise and the lights of the cabin went dark. Seems a lightning Bolt from the storm brewing outside my cabin had struck a tree barely, then erupted on the ground. Myself I was twenty feet away as this Thunderous Lightning Bolt struck. Throughout my 59 years on this Earth I’ve had many life threatening things occur, the only thing I can say there is a God. One who loves his children, all the countless prayers and conversations with my Jesus. I can honestly say “I believe.”
To have such a relationship I still forget sometimes to just Praise him accepting the blessings he gives freely. As life dictates my soul and my eternal flame with Jesus. If you can’t see your God, know he is here, We are to be a loving, peaceful trusting as a Christian! Even in these darkened days we must hold each other up in prayers and even a helping hand when you see another down.
I had a heart procedure back on Labor Day weekend 2009. The surgeons put a stint to open my clogged artery. I just turned 50 years old when the Veteran’s Hospital held my life in this team of Doctors. Trust was duly noted as I hardly knew these Angels of mercy giving a second chance on my life. I love this life. We must be an example for the younger generations of what a Christian has to do.
I’ve seen the pay it forward thing Where someone a head of me or behind me paid my grocery bill when my food Card wouldn’t work. I had over 70.00 dollars worth of life sustaining food. God was in thew midst on that day as well. Just try and get closer to our Savior! He will astound and amaze you. “For God so loved the world he gave his only begotten Son that whosoever believes in him shall not perish but have everlasting life.” John 3:16
In his Holy Word,

Tryin to get to the bottom of things like the last sip milk I member that sip good. A homemade apple
is the sunsettin or risin. All u science scholars orta know it ain’t a doin a thang we earthrock are guilty of turnin the world upside right by our revolutions of rocks not people.haha
can you change anything by dreamin n writing stuff n sleepin till noon most days. Well,yeah I did finish the chicken coop pictures no doubt comin to Better Coops n Gardens fall issue. Can’t get no eggs out of Dem chickens yet. I spoke to them accordingly to avert a trip to the drive thru at Kentucky fried chicken.
Food for summer. Wow. Of all my cookins n bbqs n stuff I did invent in my kitchen pizza from the upper crust. The one at top is a Sicilian Italian Sausage w jalepeno n scallions n mozzarrella melted on top. Mmm. Wish u coulda been here. No I ate the whole thing. Hahaha…
built a smoker for smokin meats n chicken n sorts like a stray deer loin. Secret…Oak with green watersoaked branches n logs. Roast n smokes meat slower better mm mm Good pork Sammy w homemade BBQ sauce. Corn on cob French fries n pie. Any kind goes good after my BBQ. As Julia would say bon apetite.
One last thought. How many Cubs do it take to win this day.? Nine n one more run than the other team.

I need to get down there and see this B.s.
Heath Harris 7y
For real. This guy is new in town and has some great ideas. He told me to send people his way.
RØB Severson 7y
Is this intended to be a permanent setup? I am more intrigued than you might imagine! What else can you tell me about it?
Heath Harris 7y
Pancake, yes, it is this guy’s vision to establish a school in this building. He says he is talking with the owner.
Keep in mind this is my interpretation of the project. The best idea is to take up The Amish Hobo on his invitation to interested parties to pay him a visit – just north of 1st and O’fallon streets.
From what I gathered in our exchange, Jeremiah wants to bring together the skills and knowledge of country folk, the Amish for example, with the resources of the city. He talked about living simply for the earth, that the hobo lifestyle has much to teach our society about how to utilize increasingly limited resources.
He wants to give a voice to homeless (but he does not like that word – he prefers Hobo, which apparently comes from the term “homeward bound”. Bikes and bike trailers are an important piece of the university, as they will empower folks without the resources to own a car to be mobile and acquire the recyclable castoff stuff needed to build the university, while reaching out to a wider geographical area.
The plan also includes urban farming, and reintroducing basic human knowledge to a generation that may be the first in history to not know how to feed themselves without supermarkets and microwaves.
All of this is wrapped up in a rather lighthearted approach, with humor and art as the platform for spreading the word. When I spoke with him, Jeremiah seemed to be all there. He has chosen to come to Saint Louis (fairly recently) to establish this operation. I think he knows what he is doing, and I just want to lend what help I can by introducing Hobo University to those who might be curious via Flickr, etc. I have always found Saint Louisans to be a welcoming people, so if you are interested enough to still be reading this, go say Hi!
RØB Severson 7y
Yeah I love the idea. A friend and I have been planning a technology-free “hobo trip” for awhile now, this feller could almost certainly offer a wealth of useful information. Is he really Amish?
Heath Harris 7y
Half-Amish, Full-blooded Hobo. He is living just behind the stage area in the photo above. If you see his bike with trailer, he should be around. Just ask for Jeremiah.

i’m enrolling for spring semester! i came by here with some friends to talk to him this past summer since it looked welcoming — he’s definitely a very interesting guy, and, i’d agree, he seemed ‘all there’. just fed up with the BS like a lot of us. he didn’t mention HBU, but with these pictures, i can see the vision. thanks for posting this!
Heath Harris 6y
My pleasure, Mr. Alaska. Spread the word – Homeward Bound!

The ‘Amish Hobo’ Jeremiah and I put the cornerstone on the Hobo university in October 2009. by December I was deported to an apartment on the south side of the university. but… before leaving I raised the flagship on the tent City(an actual tent city in Downtown St Louis right below the parking lots for the foortball stadium, fact I herd they wanna tear down the original university and put a 200 million dollar football stadium for a losing football team and occasional joyce Meyers convention, just jokin ms joyce. instead of givin me that monies and fixin the building for the rightful owners the homeless of the central states of America!! go figure) . As the head chef and bottle washer and coffee conussuer I helped the owne,r Mr Green, & two off duty st louis finests design and almost implemented it a ‘Whispering Winds Retreat’ (details laid out in web site hobounivercity.com)
Now I am a disabled veteran service connected disbilitys drawing a slim to none pension the army gives us but…
the rest of the story is unfolding before your eyes as I am resurrecting the plans and either a double vision on Lake of the ozrks area and st. Louis Missouri kinda a town n country retreats. for the homeless veterans and other homeless folks and right now I need your funds and dollars and pennies and gold to build this ship with wheels and legs to stand on. we can bring Mr Greens dream to life. over the past 7 years I have built this computer center hub I call it the International Headqurters of the Hobo Univercity. we are located on the shores of the Lake here in Climax Springs, Missouri have signed many soldiers into God’s Army since I left St louis so please call 5736470599 and we can chat a bit. as mr Bojanges can dance .

who holds the key?
slowly the beast rises in the land
heaven can’t stop him
until god’s command
that smile on his face unfolds

do you know, do you care?
do you stop the madness in our streets
it begins right where your at
the time to make our stand is now!
the children understand where we lead
they do follow the plan.
undermine the devil!
not in his master design
one fine person can filter thru
the end game is here
and he’s out to get you
it will be unveiled soon
he holds the key
be prepared for the best
but, be prepared to leave
holy war revival. no its been around sinced eve
sands of his castle they are breaking
and mankind soon will be rearranged
open your hearts to Jesus
the beast will head on out

⊕THIS IS HOW ROCK N ROLL STARTED…
IN THE BEGINNING GOD CREATED
THE HEAVENS N THE EARTH.
AND THE EARTH WAS WITHOUT FORM, AND VOID.
DARKNESS WAS UPON THE FACE OF THE DEEP
THE SPIRIT OF GOD MOVED
UPON THE FACE
OF THE WATERS
GOD SAID LET THERE BE LIGHT
AND THERE WAS LIGHT
DAY N NIGHT NOW FORMED IN GOD’S UNIVERSE
THAT WAS THEN
AND NOW WE ARE 6+BILLION OF US STRONG
CAN YOU STOP THE RAIN
CAN YOU STOP
LOOK N LISTEN PEOPLE
QUIT THE JABBERIN
JUST LISTEN TO THE SOUND
SOUNDS LIKE THE OCEAN
OR A TRAIN
THE PEACE GOD HAS SENT IN THE DOVE
HAS BEEN RELEASED THIS DAY
WITH ALL HIS LOVE
DO SOMETHING GOOD
MAY ANGELS LEAD YOU IN
Just close your eyes
realize, the Lord is Mighty
can you not understand
thousands have died to be right
where you stand…
all around us
the angels are there.
once to give us love
now to defend off despair…
To become the Sons of God
we must become Peacemakers
thruout God’s Universe
and in his Holy Land
Remember we are in
the Arms of His Angels
Faith and Love is all we need
to proclaim his Heavens
Come down to our knees
hold up our hands to praise
and worship the King
For his Eternity will stand!!!

Of course I must not spill the where abouts or the treasure will be yours. Could be it is in my heart that lay the gold for the passage to it would surely make a grown man quiver. Lest he die in the search. Oh and many have in their quest to this heart o gold. But I will soon be off again, to the battle of the snake and the its charmer. As the tale continues on Erin go brach and he will void all the wrongdoers and naysayers entry into the golden castle I have stored.
Yes believers It so be as from the streets of heaven is no fairy tale or old folklore but a true and grand find indeed. To get the key from this old, old, wizard of sorts one must only believe….
TIS THE LUCK OF THE IRISH don’t they see….
MAY JOY AND PEACE COME TO THIS WORLD OF MINE TODAY
Happy St. Patrick’s day to one and all,
In Jesus name,
General n Ma Hope
of the Hobo Univercity
Jesus will have his throne and all the riches and gold will be
used in the streets of his Palace. Faith yet . It starts in the heart
take a long deep breathe. exhale.
We are part of this erasing the demon in this world, and it is not by the way you think. the holy Spirit has your back. He said before he left us Many will try to enter but only a few will enter in to the door of eternal life. The light is soon coming on. And to never be turned off again. the darkness this world has been in and the wrongful unheard of crimes and habits are just not Holy u know when your sinning. If you want to go to heaven DO THE RIGHT THING. Don’t wait any longer than now. Salvation is only a prayer away. Quit trying to fix the whole universe’ troubles. take your life and clean it up. Is your bed made. Have you swept the demons out of your house. Look around you . Love somebody. Show your kindness and gratitudes for all the blessings God gives you.
As we continue on our Peace march and to give Love a chance, we must continue looking to the Heart and soul. the trumpets will sound and the angelic escort of our King will be the most majestic and glorious day of mankind.
Our defense against Satan and all his cronies is remember, take our two hands together and close our eyes while we are kneeling and Pray, Pray nPray some more. Don’t lose faith as God IS watching you.
