I had no idea where to start the search for my question:

Is there an app or program that can/will show me what I have on my calendar for the day docked on the desktop?

There is a widget for that. It's the stock calendar widget. You can double click the date (large #) on the left to get your iCal events for that day to show up as a slide out window. Technically, it's not your desktop, but it's just a 3-finger swipe to the left to see your widgets.

Geektool might allow for what you want too, but I've never played with it so I don't know for sure.

Reminder: Please include your Mac's specs. This will make it much easier for the other members to assist you.

Thanks! Now I got the calendar thing set up.. how can I allow this "3-finger swipe to the left" business? I tried 3-finger swipe to all over the place and nothing happens. Just 2 fingers to scroll.. I got Lion by the way.

Put the widget iCal Events with the regular iCal widged and you can see the days events without clicking on the widget.

Download iCal Events for Mac - Widget to view iCal events. MacUpdate.com

Never ask a man what computer he uses. If it's a Mac, he'll tell you.
If it's not, why embarrass him?'"

You may have your trackpad gestures set up slightly different than I do. Just look in System Preferences under Trackpad and see what gesture to use to slide over to widgets and to switch between desktops.

There is none.. think it's because I have the early model of MacBook (White).. but found out F12 does the trick!
