Meet Person at 7:30

A pattern in my usage of calendaring programs: I will often create meetings, events, appointments of the form "Pick up D at 7:30 after Music class"

I.e. I will put the actual target time in the title.

Reason: I will set the actual start time earlier, e.g. at 7pm, to give me time to drive to the music class to pick her up.

And I will have alarms, notifications, set at the usual countdown - 10 minutes, 5 minutes - before.

Q: Why not just set the event for the pickup time, and set an alarm?

A: I need the time to be blocked out, so that no meetings will be set up conflicting.
