I was trying to past an entry and the iCal program froze with an error message that can't be deleted, the program stuck indicating updating and totally non-reponsive.  i can only exit by force quit.  It is stuck on yesterday which is the day I was trying to paste an entry.  I think the entry was too large.  How can I get out of this.  i've restarted the program and the ocmputer but it doesn't change.  I wonder if I could use time machine to go back to a previous cal version?  Any ideas?  I have my cal also on iphone and at icloud so I am not at a total loss.  Except that i cal is now totally non functional. 

iMac, Mac OS X (10.7.3)
