iCal icon not updating

For the last few days my iCal icon in the dock has not been updating automatically, so when glancing down at the date it was displaying the 1st July. 

I know it's not a major issue, but I do use that to know the date.  Once I opened iCal it would change it to the correct date, but as soon as I closed iCal it reverted back to the 1st again.

I tried to remove iCal from the dock and then re-add back to the dock, but this did not help the issue.  In the end what worked for me was to go into terminal and type the command below, ensure the dock has the capital D.

killall Dock

This temporarily made my dock disappear, but when it came back iCal was showing the correct date.
