It was tough to see it go, but in time I saw this as a reaffirmation of what he taught me about farming: People may come and go, but if the land is preserved and managed properly, it will remain productive for generations to come. Each decision, each action, must be carefully considered to understand the impact it will have, both now and in the future.
Maybe they have children who take delight in running through the fields, as I once did. Protecting Our Environment. The near-tropical conditions created a stunning playground that brings back fond memories of running through his cacao plantation, liberating the seeds from their pods and savoring that intense chocolatey flavor.
Other days found me chewing on a stalk of sugarcane or chasing cattle across his pasture. Looking back, my time there was a near-idyllic experience. My grandfather showed me the value of hard work and what it took to manage a highly diversified farming operation. Sort: Latest Oldest. Season 1, Episode 1. Season 1, Episode 2.

Channel Ten's new series Playing For Keeps gets mixed reviews | Daily Mail Online
Season 1, Episode 5. Friday 8 Feb ML Rusty's brave decision to come out sparks an identity crisis for Paige, while Travis wrestles with a guilty conscience. Season 1, Episode 6. Derek Malcolm. Everyone involved deserves a script with more wit, originality and sense of purpose. Anna Smith. Dennis Quaid hammers away at a nothing role as Thurman's husband, an adulterous alpha dog; it's nearly identical to the one he played earlier this year in What to Expect When You're Expecting, but who's counting?
These are actors due a break.
Unfortunately, this comedy-drama about a kids' soccer coach boinking a bunch of desperate housewives doesn't appear to be it. Bilge Ebiri. Richard Roeper. I'll long be haunted by Dennis Quaid's manic performance as a palm-greasing dad who seems to be under the influence of bath salts Melissa Anderson.

There is not one moment that you can't see coming well in advance. Micheal Compton. Quite simply, what we have here is a romantic comedy that is neither. Debbie Baldwin. Most of the film is predictable, from the reaction of the women to George's relationship with his son to the heartwarming conclusion. Still, it's a relatively entertaining piece of fluff, but equally forgettable after leaving the theatre. Sarah Gopaul. Sadly, a smattering of heart-warming moments fails to redeem what is ultimately a disastrous offside shot at a rom-com.
