Aaron, what is the home page you have this working with? Can you send a 
link?

Diane, the link I provided is a non-functioning example of our feed. 
What you're referencing to sounds like the embeddable option which we 
actually are currently using but trying to find a more organic looking 
approach to including events on our branded page.

Dave, not really clear on your answer, but I'm wondering if there's a 
way to create a parent-like calendar and only include the other 
calendars we want to display so we only need to use one parser.
