The Vizu Jaus By Alric Galindez ($NFS) is a glorious open plan home that shines as the summer sun bounces off its black metal skin and streams through its large panoramic windows. The surrounding views further elevate this plot which is partially set into a sacred Patagonian site. Moving inside rich dark wood clads some of the walls and contrasting brilliant white furniture helps to add another dimension. Beautiful gardens surround the decking and feature a seating area for looking out over the spectacular views.
Practically every kid wishes that their favorite toy would come to life and John Bennett is the lucky one. Written and directed by Seth McFarlane and starring Mark Wahlberg, Mila Kunis and McFarlane himself, we see John as an adult still accompanied by Ted ($12), the bear who came to life, and witness the bond that exists between the two. There is trouble, however, in the shape of John's girlfriend Lori who is unhappy to have Ted in the equation. This results in a dilemma many men will empathize with; will he choose Lori or his lifelong friend? A hysterically funny movie that also tugs at the heartstrings, Ted is a sure fire winner.

This vehicle is definitely going on my wish list. The Watercar ($TBA) brags that it is the fastest amphibious vehicle available. It's based on a Jeep CJ8, with a Honda 3.7-liter v6 under the hood. For getting around in the water, it uses a Panther Jet propulsion system. On land you can reach speeds of 80 mph and 40+ mph in the water. There's a lot of customization that goes into creating one of these, so get in contact with Watercar for additional details.
