Savvy North Wales – Static Saturday

Jay Cool’s Hubby shares his impressions of Wales, in a series of daily letters to his work colleagues (now, with permission granted, shared with the world)! Saturday in Rhyl? Yo Dudes! We’ve managed to rig up some sort of rudimentary generator, powered by the car, and now, at last, we once again have contact with…
