Moving the time of day display on the Mac desktop

I'd like to put the time of day on the lower right of my Mac desktop because after 20+ years on Windows, I can't get used to looking for it on top.  And I still use Windows at work.

Is there an app that can put the time on the bottom or a setting?

I don't think there's a way within OS X to do that, but here's an app that should work; A little cartoonish, but it should work.

I use GeekTool for FREE which allows you to put all sorts of information anywhere on the OSX desktop

There are loads of geeklets (scripts) which  can display calendars, date, time, weather and loads more.

Good little app, does the job though I wish I could make the text bigger. (You don't have to use the silly cartoon skin thank goodness.)

The other geektool solution took more research that I had time for.
