I would like to have two monitors running two different application. One would have google calender on it all the time and the other would be using web and office applications. I would go back to the calender and make changes and refresh. Can this be done?

It's difficult to tell what is being asked here. This question is ambiguous, vague, incomplete, overly broad, or rhetorical and cannot be reasonably answered in its current form.

I'm not sure I understand: what do you mean with "a monitor running an application"? –  Terry Mar 12 '12 at 16:43
This is pretty normal behavior if you just open a Google Calendar browser window and push it to one monitor, and do the rest on the other monitor. All you need is a computer, two monitors and an operating system – am I missing something? What exactly is your problem? –  slhck Mar 12 '12 at 16:43
Why close this question? Maybe the answer to his question is simply what slhck said. Most people wouldn't know about that since most people don't use two monitors. I think what @slhck said is worth him posting as an answer. Since it directly answers his question, and it's not obvious either(except to those that have already done it and know)! –  barlop Mar 12 '12 at 16:54
@barlop - If OP clarifies the question, I'm glad to vote to reopen. I agree that maybe he's just asking if it's possible (in which case what slhck posted is the answer) but as worded it doesn't actually ask that. The question needs clarification to be a real question. –  Shinrai Mar 12 '12 at 17:04
@barlop - IMO, it's unclear if he just wants to know about the possibility or if he's actually trying and running into some software related problem. We shouldn't be in the business of guessing what people are trying to ask - confusing people doesn't help anybody. –  Shinrai Mar 12 '12 at 22:28
