Question Is there a way to add a item (directory location) to the Send To... option?

Hi all!

This is my first post here I just started to play around with Ubuntu 12.04 for a week now to see what it is all about & for experience!

I'm used to Win XP3; but I like the challenge & after reinstalling Ubuntu 12.04 ... 5 times making a mess of it in different ways I'm getting somewhere now.

Even got my text to speech function with festival (tts) working within Opera 12.00 & reads-out selected text from anywhere ..... I will explain this in another post later how I did this in a very simple way!! Could be useful for someone!
They explained this in many ways on the net how to do this; but I found a relatively easy why how to do this with my limited knowledge about Linux... with this simple command script placed in a text file called Speak which I linked to a shortcut-key >>>

xsel | festival --tts
Just did not find a way yet how to make the speak action stop half way though!?

Anyway here comes my first question.....

Is there a way to add a item (directory locations) to the Send To... menu option?

What I need this for is this; sometimes I have a file I make notes in or I like to remember the file so I like to just send it to one central location to a different partition drive into a specific backup directory by just using the right mouse button menu option Send To.... >>> but the options at present only gives me only the option of all the media Drives entriesonly.

They have the same feature in windows but its very simple to add a new shortcut location to the list by adding a shortcut to the Send To directory!

Can not figure out how to do this in Ubuntu .....

This file /usr/bin/nautilus-sendto appears to have something to do with this Send-To function but can not be added being a Hex file type.

What a pity that I can not enter any snapshot images to this forum directly would make it so much easier to understand??

Here is the menu item I'm talking about where I would like to add some specific addresses location to:

Sorry for my bad English!

Thanks for any help up front!
