Thank you very much with your reply, that did get me started very well! I now have it grabbing the un-expired items-- published within the last number of days and now-- from any of the thre content providers concerned. (what a mouthful!)
However, that only appears to provide me with the Content items and Comments for each Blog Posting, News Item, or Event. I need the titles of these things as well. I do see that if you use the EventsManager class in addition to the code you provided me, you can get an Event by its Content ID... I fail to see how I might obtain the container objects (if that makes any sense??) the News and Blog posting items...
Secondly, I'm wondering, would there be a way to grab these items in batches? I don't want to make too may calls to the SQL database, although given the small timeframe concerned, the small number of actual blog postings, news items, or events we may actually want to display on the page, and page caching, it may not matter that much.
