As the introduction states "Green: A Field guide To Marijuana ($30) is a for a new generation of sophisticated pot smoker as well as the curious." But it is also for those who love hyper detailed photography of plant life. The photos are so beautiful, you'll actually think you can smell the flowers. Green starts with a 'Primer' section that explores the complex culture around marijuana and the botany that makes it such a unique flower. In the 'Buds' section you get descriptions of lineage, flavor, and mental or physical high for 170 strains. This will most likely be the go to reference manual for marijuana in the future for recreational and medicinal users alike.
If you're looking for an adult Lego set then look no further than the LEGO 'The Dark Knight' Tumbler ($199). The iconic Batman vehicle includes awesome features like a detailed interior, adjustable top wings, huge rubber-treaded racing tires, and of course, exclusive mini-figures: Batman and The Joker. The completed model measures over 5" high, 15" long, and 9" wide. But let me make it very clear that the Tumbler is not for the faint of heart. The set includes almost 1900 pieces and will take a lot of patience. Expected availability is September 1 2014.
This vehicle is definitely going on my wish list. The Watercar ($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.

The Hesketh 24 gets its name from the extremely limited run of this bike. Only 24 will be made with an expected delivery date of February 2014.
The River House by Suyama Peterson Deguchi ($NFS) embraces the natural beauty of the mountain area that surrounds it. Built for a retired couple the home features a guest wing and extended outdoor living areas. It also features spectacular views of the river it sits above. The primary focal point on the exterior is an elongated concrete wall on the north side of the home that provides a structural backbone and base for the remaining wood, glass, metal, and plaster finishes. The shed roof that extends from the front offers a synergy between the indoors and the outside. The beautifully execute finishing touches including art and furnishings contribute to the serenity of the home.
