I have been getting letters from the dealer saying that when a light comes on its time for maintenance 1 or 2. I have been keeping the oil changed but recently a light came on the dash "An oil cup w/ a wrench" My question is what all does maintenance 1 or/and 2 entail?

The light comes on at fairly short intervals ... even to let you know that you need an oil change. The mileage at which it comes on will depend on when it was reset last time. Here's a link to Yahoo Answers to turn the light off yourself. http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20080305080020AA1XbGo
There are two maintenance programs the manufacturer recommends. Maintenance 1 is for if you drive the he.l out of the thing and go off roading with a bunch of doughnuts thrown in for good measure or if your in stop and go traffic all the time. Maintenance 2 is for regular driving habits that you do from day to day like grocery getting and hauling in the 9 point buck you just shot.
Maintenance Required is a light that comes on after a predetermined number of miles. For example, if the maintenance schedule Honda set for the car calls for an oil change at 3000 miles, a new fan belt at 6000 miles, and another oil change at 9000 miles, then the maintenance required light will come on every 3000 miles and stay on until it is reset by the dealer. Some people, especially those that do their own regular maintenance but don't have a way to reset the light themselves, find this an annoyance. But others find it useful and take their cars in to the dealer every time the light comes on, and they rest assured that all of the regular maintenance is always done on time.
What this light does NOT do however is signal that there is anything immanently wrong with your car. It is not a "Check Engine" light (that's the one you should worry about if it ever comes on), but merely a reminder for you to do preventative maintenance. That doesn't mean you should *ignore* it, per se, as you want to make sure you have your car on some kind of maintenance schedule, even if yours is not as strict as Honda's. But there is no need to panic.
Maintenance required indicator reminds you that it is time to take your vehicle in for scheduled maintenance.It is tell you that you need to get an oil change and all of you fluids to be checked and serviced. After the recommended time or mileage period the light will come on telling you it is time for your car to be serviced for whatever problems there might be. The dealer will reset the indicator after completeing the scheduled maintenance. You can reset the indicator yourself by Turning off the engine. press and hold the select/reset button in the instrument panell, then turn the ignition swithch ON(II). Hold the button for about ten seconds, until the indicator resets. If this doesn't stop the maintenance light from coming on then you need to take it to a honda dealer.
oil and air filter every 3 mo or 3000 miles which ever comes first the timing belt needs to be checked really soon and you might consider taking it to the dealer for a transmission flush filter and fill. the dealer can set you up with the best intervals to do the major maintenance.
if you went to a dealer then that sounds about right. they tend to be expensive. you got to remember though that most the time 90k mile maintenence includes radiator flush, oil change, tranny oil change, emissions checks, possibly water pump check. cooling system pressure check. abs checks, brake checks, steering and suspension checks. there is alot of maintenance that can be done. you need a list of the stuff they are trying to charge you. honestly if they do all the work required then 3300 my not be to bad
