How to Add Events to Susan's Calendar

Style manuals suggest that one never begin a letter with an apology, but I'm going to do it anyway. I'm sorry the calendar has been so frustrating for everyone.

Susan's Calendar in the links area is a READ ONLY calendar. The following is a step by step guide to creating an event on this calendar by using the Google Calendar button just below the Read Only Calendar.

1) Choose an email address to use for your google calendar account. Any and ALL addresses work: choose one.
2) Email from this address saying, "I wanna create an event--please hurry!"
3) While waiting for my reply, create a google calendar account if you don't have one. Go to the blog and click the Google Calendar button. The google login page appears. Click the "create a new account" link on that page. Create and validate the new account using your chosen email address. Return to the blog and click the Google Calendar button again. When you've receive a reply from georgethistle saying "Go Dog, Go!" login to google calendar.
5) The calendar page appears. Click the yes button.
6) Notice in the left margin your new Google Calendar in blue and Susan's Calendar in green.
7) Click in the calendar where you want to create an event. A dialog box appears. Type in the name of the event; click the edit event link. In the calendar field of this page use the little arrow to select Susan's Calendar. Save the event. Alternatively some event dialog boxes contain the calendar selection field which saves one from having to go through the event editing step. Either/Or.
8) The event will show up in green as part of Susan's Calendar and not yours. Refresh the blog to check it's there.

Please email with any questions or frustrations so that Susan doesn't have to play the go-between. Good Luck.
