I love James Taylor and have all his stuff. Some great lyrics in his songs. We saw him in concert once at Jones Beach when we lived on Long Island.

...and I might add for viewing McLeod's Daughter.
I have been wanting to thank you profusely for recommending this series.
I LOVE IT! In fact I like is sooo much I am starting to view the entire series for the second time. My only problem is everything else I rent now pales by comparison.

Billie...you ROCK!

Arlene, James Taylor is a favorite of mine too - I had never seen these particular videos of him singing some of my favorite songs at such a young age.

How wonderful that you saw him at Jones Beach, in concert!!

Maddy, this is so funny - I am watching West Wing for the second time on Netflix, but when the DVDs are in the mail, I too am watching McLeod's Daughters for the second time - on the Netflix watch instantly feature!

You're right that there is something special about the show. So good to hear from you - hope all is well!

James Taylor is a favorite of mine, too :) I've tried to live my life by his song "Shower the People You Love with Love" - one of my all time favorite songs - great message !! Thanks for sharing these, Billie, I hadn't seen them before. And never heard of McLeod's Daughters; guess I don't watch enuf TV...or maybe it was on pay TV :)

Any of you remember Les Crane's musical version of "The Desiderata"? Another favorite of mine.

We haven't had TV or cable for many years, but we use Netflix to watch some TV series and now can that TV is available online I usually have a show or two a year I follow. I don't remember how I found out about McLeod's Daughters - probably it was recommended to my on my Netflix page - it's got lots of riding and horses and farm life in it, and strong women. :)
