Well, it's kinda hard to merge to seperate calendars.  The trick is,
they have to be named the same thing.  However, if you do that.  All
hell will break loose.

I suggest you guys sit down at one computer, put all the of the
calendar's stuff on one calendar, then go to .mac preferences in your
system preferences, go to advanced, then click on "Replace" or
"Rewrite" (or something, the button is on the bottom)..

Then tell your computer (watch the arrows!!) to overwrite .mac..  then
on the other computer, in the same window, tell .mac to overwrite your
computer.  viola.  Same calendar.
