    Cool Google Calendar Questions

    I am making a site for a symposium coming up at my school and rather than a big *** ugly calendar or straight up text on the site I was hoping to have something a little nicer-looking. So I created a new calendar on google calendar and entered in 3 days of events that will make up the symposium. I then displayed it in the agenda format and entered details and it all looks great. I embedded it in the page and it is working well except for one thing: the symposium does not begin until May 22nd. Is there any way to get the calendar to automatically begin displaying from that point or to always display only those three days? Otherwise it has a little window with text that says "search for events after x/x/x on this calendar" and once you click that it finds the agenda but otherwise it just loads an empty page since there are no events in April. Is there any way around this or perhaps another simple calendar program I can achieve the same results with?
    Once I thought I was wrong but I was mistaken.

    Not sure if you can or not, it may be something that needs to be edited when making the map. Not sure though. I guess it would be like finding a location on google maps and embedding that location on your page.

    Well yes and no. It is quite easy to embed a location from google maps because google maps remains static whereas the calendar changes in relation to whatever the current date is. But since there is only one 3 day block with anything marked on the calendar you'd think I could get it to display the only events that exist.

    Can anyone tell me whether there is some way I am not seeing or not. And potentially recommend a similar service that might achieve what I am looking for.
