I think if I could have another choice of a profession, it would have been a farmer. I know that sounds silly, because really I don't know a lot about this very hard work and at times frustrating profession. I do, however find farm life fascinating and I truly respect the dedication of the farmer and his/her family.

What little exposure I have had to this field (sorry, no pun intended) was through my grandfather and my father. My grandfather owned a farm...

Oooooohhh I just have to tell you, "THE BIG BOY IS BACK," and I'm not talking about my little Tubby Hubby, Wayne; although we have been doing something together that we haven't been doing in a while because of the colds, and having the gilly whumps, and the headaches, and I don't know what all else I've had this past winter.

I've often daydreamed about what I'd do if I had all the power in the world. Would I solve world hunger or create a new species of flower? Would I end war or engineer a pink cow that actually did produce strawberry milk? Hmmm...decisions, decisions.

Bruce Nolan (Jim Carrey, The Majestic) is given the opportunity to make these tough decisions in the new comedy Bruce Almighty. Bruce is a reporter for the local Buffalo five o'clock news show who is competing for the anchor position. As more and...
