Thank you for the responses. Looks like the easiest way is to make an 
automator workflow you can make that drag and drop. Alfred looks like it 
may be a powerful solution but I need to learn how to use it. I added a 
workflow but I was not able to figure out how to use it exactly as it is 
not intuitive. I will have to sit down when I have more time to figure 
Alfred out.
