I use my calendar the same as I would one hanging on my kitchen wall. I simply write (post) future events on it. I want to 'use different colour pens' to write on my calendar, in order to link certain types of events to the eye. For example, I want to make all hospital visits have the same colour background, I want to have all dance nights have a different colour background (but because they're dance related they would be the same colour), visits by grandchildren would be a different colour, holidays different again, and so it goes on. The actual wording used would need to be different, such as 'Richard to cardiac dept' and 'Ann to gyne'. Basically, I would like to see an entry on the creation page that asks 'backgound colour'. A highlighter pen is what I'm looking for!! Am I reaching for the stars?
