Listbox type progress display?

I sometimes use a workbook as a program that should process start to finish.  CTRL-A, Shift-Enter.  What I would like to have is a single place to monitor for status.  In Windows I would use a ListBox().  This is a small, multi-line text window with scroll capability you can add text to at any time.  I.e.

ListBox.Add[myBox, "Starting Execution "]
ListBox.Add[myBox, "Main task finished "]
ListBox.Add[myBox, "All Tasks finished. "]

Anyone know how to accomplish the same functionality with a Notebook interface?  It can write anywhere.  It doesn't have to be a pop-up.
