IS THIS YOUR EAR? If you are related to either Ben or myself, please go have a look in the mirror and see if, in fact, your ear looks like the ear above. This ear does not look like the other WigEars, see?
Ben'sand mineSo, please, blood relatives only. Have a look. Let us know. Thanks.

German Dinner Bread
This is called German Dinner Bread because my German friend, Alexa, gave it to me and because in Germany they tend to eat a larger, hot lunch and something simple for dinner, like bread. For several days now we've been trying this method and I love not having to pull together a big meal at the end of the day when I'm tired AND I am starting to agree with Alexa, I eat fewer daytime snacks when I have a hot meal for lunch. Ben comes home for lunch most days, so we're able to make this lifestyle change. For several evenings now we have enjoyed this UBER-healthy and yummy bread. I only have a bread machine recipe, but I'm sure you could make it without one. Thank you, Alexa!

1 1/4 cup warm water
2 Tbsp Oil
1/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1.5 tsp Salt
1 3/4 c. white flour
1 c. ground flax meal
1 c. graham flour
1 package yeast or 1T. bulk yeast
1 c. raisins
1 c. nuts (I used walnuts)

I set it for the 1.5 lb loaf, for whole wheat bread, light setting. Takes about 3.5 hours in my machine.

If you notice a funny purple box at the bottom of WigLife, it might be the new PlayList player that I added so I can share my favorite tunes with you. Out of respect for my mother and grandparents I set it so it does not automatically start when you visit this website. So, you'll have to scroll down and push play if you want to hear. I plan to add songs when I'm inspired. So, far, I'm only inspired with one. It's by Enter The Worship Circle. If you haven't visited their site or bought their music, you really should. You can buy most albums for $8 on mp3. For you LeTourneau alums out there, these are the guys who used to be 100 Portraits! We're still in love with their music.

I am so laughing about the ears. My "thing" is to notice teeth... my husband's is to notice ears. He has told me for almost 16 years that my ears are "perfect" and that it's a good thing, because he couldn't be with a woman that has weird ears. Crazy-goofy, right?

You'll have to post what you find out about the family ears. :)

I don't mind if you play music when your site comes up. I would like it. You are probably thinking of when a song of yours came up everytime I used the computer. Love you,Mom

That would be what I was thinking of. Thanks for your comment, Mom. Did you look at your ear?
