Oh, so now I think I understand.
As I said in a previous post, I have just been creating duplicate calendars on both Google and Lightening. So - my two tabs for Calendar (local) and Google Calendar (Google) each show just "their" calendars, which happen to be pretty much the same since I have been making dual entries.

To make my life easier and just need one entry per event, I can close the Google Calendar tab and just use the Lightening Calendar tab if I create a network calendar in the Lightening Calendar tab and give it my Google address - which should then make it a Google calendar. THAT is why the instructions for the Provider add-on described how to find the Google calendar URL !
OK, now I think I understand.
Before I can change to just the one tab though I guess I need to re-think how I organize my calendars. That should not be too difficult.
Thank you for explaining.

I have been using Lightening and Google both for a long time.
In the past, I have always just made separate entries in both
calendars - synchronized them manually so to speak.
So, I have always had a "Calendar" tab next to my email tab in
Thunderbird. Then last night, when I installed the Provider add-on, I
got a third tab that says "Google Calendar" and shows all the events
from my Google calendars.
It looks like it belongs there. Are you saying that I should just have
the one "calendar" tab?
Yes.  Installing Lightning enables the calendar tab.  After installing
the provider, I was then able to add the Google calendars to that tab.
So, when I look at Thunderbird, I see a tab for email and one for
calendar.  When I go to the calendar tab, I see the 2 Google calenars I
use listed on the left side, below the month calendar.  I can add as
many different calendars as I wan't, including a local one there.  To
create a new calendar, I just right click in the area at the left and
select new calendar and I go from there.

You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift.
You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong
You cannot help the poor man by destroying the rich.
You cannot further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred.
You cannot build character and courage by taking away man's initiative and independence.
You cannot help small men by tearing down big men.
You cannot lift the wage earner by pulling down the wage payer.
You cannot keep out of trouble by spending more than your income.
You cannot establish security on borrowed money.
You cannot help men permanently by doing for them what they will not do for themselves.
