select A1
go to format
conditional formating (pop up window will be displayed)
by default'cell value is' is displayed. if not select from the drop down list
From next drop down list, select 'greater than or equal to'
On the text box beside it, enter '=today()'
Underneath, click on the 'format'button and select the color of your choice.
when ever the condition on the column A1 is equal to or grater than today, it will be displayed as the color of your choice.

Hope this helps.

Good Luck
