Now that we have been retired since January 2010, seldom do we set an alarm clock to which sound (buzzer) we arise in the morning.  In fact, like clockwork, I can be certain that the internal body clock will awaken us between 5:30 and 6:00 am daily without fail.

Still, when you think about the "ringing reminders" that are well-known in this world, none is perhaps more famous than the London Big Ben Tower. The clock tower at Westminster, which contains the bell known as Big Ben, is an iconic landmark in London, England. It is traditionally thought that the melody of the tower chimes was taken from the tune of I Know That My Redeemer Liveth from Handel’s Messiah. Words were eventually added and put on display in the clock room:

Lord, through this hour be Thou our guide;
So by Thy power no foot shall slide.
