thank you both --
and drmike -- normally I always check search first, but this past week i'd had so many occasions on various help forums where the item I was looking for wasn't addressed, that I short-circuited it this time and just posted. wouldn't you know this time there's be multiple direct hits.
sorry bout that.
I did read about someone who seemed to get RSS feed version to work, but that one seemed to be the anamoly, and others could not get it to display properly.
TANGENTIAL NOTE: How hard IS it to run the "host your own blog" wordpress software? I do have a hosting account with plenty of bandwidth, and the blog i'm using is really mostly for a CMS, and not for blog entries every, and the audience is small: it's more of a neighborhood resource mini-site.
Perhaps you could point me to an FAQ or topic on costs/benefits of hosting one's own. Seems to me it's not worth the hassle of admin responsibilities to get Google Calendar integrated, but upon reading further I see that even YouTube videos can't be posted. ... That's quite restrictive... @?!@
