    Carsten> Pete, what exactly do you meam by "custom agenda" here.  

I mean it's one of my org-agenda-custom-commands. This is my (probably
overly) complex setup to list any of the things I do at home, which have
a TODO="NEXT" action associated with them. 

  ("h" "Home Stuff (Next)"
   ((tags-todo "Home//NEXT" nil)
    (tags-todo "DIY//NEXT" nil)
    (tags-todo "Karen//NEXT" nil)
    (tags-todo "PhoneH//NEXT" nil)
    (tags-todo "LaptopH//NEXT" nil)
    (tags-todo "WaitingH//NEXT" nil)
    (tags-todo "SometimeH//NEXT" nil))

Some of these actions will have SCHEDULED or DEADLINE dates associated
with them and I only want to see those actions 30 days (or perhaps 60
days) before the date. Anything without a DEADLine or SCHEDULED date I
want to see in the list.

OK - promising - this looks like it may do what I want:

 ("h" "Home Stuff (Next)"
  (tags-todo "TODO=\"NEXT\"+Home+DEADLINE<\"<+1m>\"" nil)
  (tags-todo "TODO=\"NEXT\"+Home+DEADLINE=\"\"" nil)
  (tags-todo "TODO=\"NEXT\"+Home+SCHEDULED<\"<+1m>\"" nil)
  (tags-todo "TODO=\"NEXT\"+Home+SCHEDULED=\"\"" nil)


I.e., find me NEXT items with the tag of Home, with a deadline within
the next month, AND find me NEXT items with the Home tag, where there is

But that does seem very complex. (it also feels slow).

It does. At least i know there is a way to do it.  The question now is -
is there an easier way ?

I haven't stopped using org-mode - it is the lubricant which oils the
wheels of my life.  I have just reduced the time I can spend reading and
responding to mailing list emails. :-( Still grazing on the list though.
