Dynamically resize Iframe Height of External Blog

Programming Languages Question

I have a website that I want to nest an external Google Blogger Blog in an Iframe on a .cfm container page. Have tried many solutions--no cross domain security warning but iframe just does not resize.

Please: EZ to follow instructions, I am 80% designer, 20% coder....

I do have access to website and html blogger code.

Many, many thanks!

CFM CONTAINER PAGE CODE:
 
<body>
<div id="maincontainer">
 
<div id="topsection">
<cfinclude template="header3_alt.cfm">
</div>
 
<div id="fullwidthcontentwrapper">
<div id="blogcontentcolumn">
		<img src="images/blog-title.jpg" width="1002" height="78" />
<!--<div class="aboutMainText"> -->				
        		 <div class="center"><!-- BLOG -->
        		   <iframe id="idTopFrame" src="http://www.alexchingas.blogspot.com" height="1000" width="1000" scrolling="auto" frameborder="0"></iframe>
        		   <p></p>
		</div>
      <!--</div> -->
</div>
</div>
</div>
 
<div id="footer">
	<cfinclude template="footer.cfm">
</div>
</body>
</html>
