There definitely was a hack in 5 that let you add a persistent link or 
pointer to a "notes" file  into the "Open Recent" menu, so that this 
link dropped to the bottom of the menu but never aged out -- because I 
asked how to do this on this newsgroup several years ago, and some 
someone supplied it. 

My saved file was called "MMA Notes" and I just discovered that the link 
is still there in the "Open Recent" menu in my copy of 6, though it 
doesn't link to the actual notes file any more.

How to find where this link is located or reactivate it on my Mac is 
beyond my pay grade.
