This might be silly, but you did try to go through "Format Cell", then "Wrap" in the Alignment tab?

Was it grayed out or something?

ps:  If I double click in the cell, all of the paragraph shows up but once I move to another cell, this is what I see.

It's on the Date format. Change "Date" to "Text".
