  1. I love getting the letters, but please don’t go telling folks they are heading to get about one particular a week. We have been lucky to obtain a single a month. You need to do a little better than that….or halt the pinocchio stories at the quite least. If just one a month is what it is, then that’s what it is.

(Apple support does not, so far…) I think b/c of iCloud calendar sharing involving my husband and that i, I am getting two alerts for every event on the iMac and on the iPhone. everything is up to date and i have a very new MacBook Pro and the new iPhone 4s.
