making a Module or Column that will print lines interspersed with plots

I run Mathematica 7. I have some legacy notebooks, from Mathematica 5, in which there were Modules such as macro :=Module[{j}, Print["something"]; plota; Print["something else"]; plotb ]; where plota and plotb were plots. Now with Mathematica 7 the semicolons prevent the plots from showing up. Show[plota]; has the same problem. The semicolons, which are needed in a Module, prevent the plotting. I have tried using a Column or a Graphics column, macro:=Column[{ Print["something"], plota, Print["something else"], plotb }] and this does the printing and the plotting, but all the printing comes at the beginning and all the plots come after that. I really want the printing to come in between the plots, in the order that I show them. How can I do this? --------------------------- Bruce Shore bwshore at me.com (925) 455 0627 --------------------------
