Cursing is invoking the assistance of a spirit to help you inflict suffering. Swearing on the other hand, is invoking, only the witness of a spirit to an statement you wish to make.

Madge:  Meet Madge.  Madge likes food and companionship.  Madge likes grain, apples, carrots, grass, hay, or anything else a mule would like to eat. Madge likes lazy, cool days with lots to eat.  Madge mainly likes FOOD.

Mack. Meet Mack.  Mack has anger issues.  He is angry because Madge never pulls her weight.  He is angry because she always steals his food.  He is angry because he is old.  Mack is angry.

Farm News:  OK – back to the quote: cursing.  As most of you know, I’ve committed to horse power this year.  Well – one thing to remember – you can’t be in a rush with horses (or mules).  We had a rough week cultivating  – or actually hilling potatoes.  I did a lot of cursing, (oops I mean swearing) – loud swearing- and I am hoping the neighbors did not hear me!!  In my defense, a LOT of potatoes lost their lives!

French Breakfast Radish Sandwich

Kara Newman for NPR

Makes 4 sandwiches

1/2 cup unsalted butter

1/2 tablespoon chopped marjoram or rosemary

2 bunches French breakfast radishes, sliced into thin rounds (about 1/8-inch think)

1 1/2 cups lettuce torn into pieces

8 slices brown bread , such as pumpernickel or rye

Allow butter to soften, and stir in herbs. Spread a layer of herb butter on one side of each piece of bread. Lay out four pieces of bread, butter side up, and arrange a layer of radish rounds on top of the butter, followed by a layer of torn lettuce on top of that. Top with a second piece of bread, butter side down. Slice diagonally into two triangles and serve.
