July 6, 2017 – Jan Hus, Marked for Life and July Reads
My Morning Workout
Ok so this morning was kinda cool so I thought that I would run. Therefore, rather than do a full 60 minute workout I decided to only do a modified version of that workout.The workout only lasted 23 minutes and burned 181 calories. After I finished I checked the weather and saw that light rain was to start in a few minutes. I checked the radar and saw that there was indeed rain on the way. So I said maybe I’ll run later. That when on most of the day so I in fact never ran today. Bad Me! S
o hopefully, I can make myself run after we drop Oliver off at his Dad’s work tomorrow. Yes tomorrow we will be babysitting Oliver most of the day! Of course Oliver may keep me moving after work tomorrow that I won’t have to run!
On This Day – July 6th
Today is Jan Hus Day in the Czech Republic
Today is Jan Hus Day in the Czech Republic The day commemorates the day in 1415 when Jan Hus was burned at the stake for heresy.
Jan Hus c. (1369 – 6 July 1415), sometimes Anglicized as John Hus or John Huss, was a Czech priest, philosopher, Master, dean and rector at Charles University in Prague, church reformer, founder of Hussitism, a seminal figure in the Bohemian Reformation and a key predecessor to Protestantism.
After John Wycliffe, the theorist of ecclesiastical Reformation, Hus is considered the first Church reformer, as he lived before Luther, Calvin, and Zwingli. His teachings had a strong influence on the states of Western Europe, most immediately in the approval of a reformist Bohemian religious denomination, and, more than a century later, on Martin Luther himself.

This Man Reads – July Reads
Over the last few days , I have started reading two books. One is A Puzzle to Be Named Later by Parnell Hall. It’s a Puzzle Lady mystery featured the always amusing Cora Felton. I think RT Reviews says it right it’s “Jessica Fletcher Meets Groucho Marx!” I chose this book because it is an easy and fun read. That is the kind of book I need after the very intense I Am Death and The Girl Who Was Taken.
In the follow-up to The Second Life of Nick Mason, the remarkable hero fights to take back control from the crime lord who owns his life, as he races to complete a daring and dangerous new mission. . . .
Nick Mason has been given a true mission impossible: Infiltrate WITSEC, the top-secret federal witness-protection program that has never been compromised, locate the three men who put his boss Darius Cole behind bars for life, and kill them.
But first he has to find them—they’re ghost prisoners locked down around the clock in classified “deep black” locations by an battalion of heavily armed U.S. marshals charged with protecting them—and the clock is ticking. Read More
