First problem with mail blogs

I was parsing the Cafe Con Leche rss feed. No explicit date - that becomes ususal. Only the day can be extracted from the link reference. The real problem - only "description" is available for items,

with a short exceprt - and the link points to the day view, not the individual item.

Initially I was thinking to use a workaround for "description only" or "incomplete content" - i.e. grab the linked item. Unfortunately the link is not to the article, but to the page containing a list of articles and a lot of other markup and stuff.
