"Resurrection of Christ" — Paolo Uccello

V

Aldous Huxley called Uccello's great window of the Resurrection — a 13-foot-diameter stained glass creation in the dome of Florence Cathedral created between 1443 and 1445 — "the most extraordinary single work of vision-inducing art ever produced."

Sled Legs: Wear your sled — ride hills like a boss

As a rule I'm totally not a Kickstarter backer anymore after paying for vaporware a couple times.

But this is the exception that proves the rule: I ponied up $65 for a pair. 

Can't wait to confound and amaze all the little kids in neighboring houses when they get out their sleds to ride down the fantastic slope under the power line right-of-way just 100 feet from my back door.

"This isn't your grandfather's sled"  — wait a sec, I'm a grandfather!

Never mind.

Allez!

$65.
