sunrise Time to lighten up! Guilt got you down? Then come over here and chuckle for a while at the good-natured stories, photos and videos that the Villagers have contributed. The goal? Purely to learn to take ourselves and our world a little less seriously... Our great Friend is wearing his best smile today, and wishes only that we look in his direction to see that whatever is bothering us is not the real problem. We look past the effects in our lives (our little dramas and upsets) and straight to cause (those ever so silly thoughts of guilt - snicker), and let the importance of the whole kit 'n kaboodle disappear in a 'poof' of laughter and smiles. Enjoy!

P.S. A teeny guide for contributing to this page: the fun and humour we are looking for is never disparaging, not even suggestively judgmental. On the other hand, a comedian who is poking fun at himself is definitely okay, as long as it's in good taste. Thanks.

Jennifer and Jim kept getting huge water bills. They knew beyond a doubt that the bills weren't representative of their actual usage, and no matter how they tried to conserve, the high bills continued.
Although they could see nothing wrong, they had everything checked for leaks or problems: first the water meter, then outdoor pipes, indoor pipes, underground pipes, faucets, toilets, washer, ice maker, etc. -- all to no avail.
One day Jim was sick and stayed home in bed, but kept hearing water running downstairs. He finally tore himself from his sick bed to investigate, and stumbled onto the cause of such high water bills.
Apparently this was happening all day long when they were not at home. Knowing that few would believe him, he taped a segment of the 'problem' for posterity -- see attached video.
