  Click any red text below for an information drop-down. (Very cool!) Well, not so cool! This site crashed and in the re-construction of the page Afshin and I (Michael) were unable to get the lessons grid to function. It's a Google thing which allows Afshin to maintain the grid remotely. We are stumped here and could use your help, if anyone would know how to do this. Afshin thought that the following code should have done the trick, but alas, it didn't:

iframe src="https://www.google.com/calendar/embed?showTitle=0&mode=AGENDA&height=400&wkst=1&bgcolor=%23ffffff&ctz=America%2FNew_York" style=" border:solid 1px #777 " width="800" height="400" frameborder="0" scrolling="no"

I've taken off the brackets ("<>") so the code sample would display on the page. Anyway, thanks for reading.
