Adding date to gnome-shell panel (Ubuntu 17.10)

The default gnome panel is Ubuntu 17.10 does not include the date.  It only shows the day of the week.  Strange default if you ask me.  See the image below.

I mush prefer it have the date on it.  Like you see below.

To do that, use command below in any terminal window of your choice.

gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface clock-show-date true

If you regret your decision, you can set the clock-show-date boolean variable to false and ti will remove the date.
