How to get linux mint to show what day it is

So my issue is I work at odds times due to remote programming teams being overseas. I rarely know what day it is here.

I like my computer to remind me the date and day of week

Here is a very helpful site that shows you the code to enter in the calendar widget

https://www.foragoodstrftime.com/

I learned I can not paste a url into the paragraph block, as it try’s to embed it. I have to type text then highlight it and then hit the Link button and add the address.  which drops the link in the middle of the highlighted text. Then delete the text not in the link.

Very annoying interface. I will post a link to this bad user experience in the forums, better yet I will email Matt.
