Thanks. I agree this is prolly a better approach.

I did get things to work (see code in post-script) a bit using your suggestion 

But maybe I wasn't clear enough in describing what I 'm trying to do. 

I 'd like to parse the weekly Agenda (C-c a a) to show only those items that 
meet the specified criteria (eg, certain tags, todo-tags, or properties). The 
advantage is that that shows the relevant items, will complete details of 
dates, etc. Its sort of running a grep on the weekly Agenda output.

Any ideas are appreciated.


PS: The two custom searches that I coded up are:

(setq org-agenda-custom-commands
     '(("h" "Agenda for context Home"
         ((agenda "")
          (tags "HOME")))))

(setq org-agenda-custom-commands
     '(("h" "Agenda for context Home" agenda (tags "HOME"))))

FWIW, I use tags to  mark contexts and filtering on tags is really
really fast and flexible.
