In 250 Mrak Hall, at the University of California, in Davis, they keep a small bell, set aside on a little platform, for a particular type of occasion.  They rang it once on Wednesday, at around 2:20pm, as I was leaving.  People clapped, and Shelly Archer used the word “Doctor” to describe me.  She was the first person to have done so who was not technically incorrect. 

So there it is.
Thank you Davis.

    Well earned, Dr. Waring. We are happy for you and your Fine Family Four.

    We envisioned, and would have preferred, a large bell tower serenade.
