moment I will give it a whirl.

All of the links from the calendar (lower right corner) which are not events
have this issue, take the calendar back to January, there are several posts
listed on the calendar.  For example,

http://www.fortbendbuyersagent.com/2009/01/02/  << this works

or ...

http://www.fortbendbuyersagent.com/2009/01/09/  << this works

Thanks for looking Alex.
