Hands bloodied and soaked from the waist down, Rudyard Kipling was happy. Not just happy, “utterly, supremely, and consummately happy,” the famed author wrote, lying on the bank of the Clackamas River next to the first salmon he’d ever caught.

UPDATE: had to go hunt down a valid URL again for WXRT’s HD “New Music” stream to load into another Internet radio player.

Blue “Chagall” Glass Wall Fountain
with scripted sounds on/off and volume controls.
You can reduce the sounds to 1/4, 1/2, and 3/4 volume as well as mute by touching the glass. Turn on projector lighting by touching gold lamp (one side only, other side is normally lit). Turn it into a nice window by hollowing a wall to the right size and stretching the fountain to fit.
