    Lets say I want to create a reminder, everyday at 09:00h, feed the dog, how do I do that, once and it shows for the rest of my life?

    Right-click on the event and select "Get Info".

    Actually iCal doesn't support repeating reminders.

    But it does support repeated appointments, so just create an appointment at 9am with an alarm and the set the repeating options to repeat every day indefinitely.

    Well, no not really. It's an event.

    That's an appointment, not a reminder. Reminder's are the to-do's in the right panel, these are not-repeatable.

    As I don't use iCal, I don't know the right terminology for all these items.
    But one can use an Event/Appointment then to remind oneself of feeding the dog(?)?

    He could, it just means clogging up the calender with daily events.

    This will all be fixed in Mountain Lion though :D

    Heck, I use Events as reminders for everything. In fact, I only use them as reminders. What the heck would an Event be that isn't intended to remind me of it? The reason I use them is precisely because they repeat themselves. I have no use whatsoever for To-Dos in iCal. If I need a list of things I have to do that get crossed off once they are done, I use paper.

    Ah, but the paper I use has already been used once, and would otherwise be thrown away, or in fact has already been thrown away by someone else, and I've "rescued" it.
