This is what I had in my file originally, but when I opened the file, there 
would be a lengthy delay before it actually opened. When I removed the code 
from the file, it opened immediately. I don't know what is going on.

Thanks, this works well. And I learned how to take your code and turn it into a 
function which is something I should have learned a long time ago. One of these 
days, I'll get around to really learning elisp instead of borrowing code others 
wrote and playing around with it like an amateur. Again, thank you very much.
