This posting is for Terence Devlin because his email address is not available. I really
appreciated your postings on how to create a Services option to send iPhotos to
Apple Mail and this got me started on using the Automator.

I have a very simple AppleScript that I need to use all the time to clear the clipboard
and I would like to have it show up under the Services menu using Automator.

The simple AppleScript is

tell application "System Events" to set the clipboard to ""

For reasons I don't understand my OS X sometimes fails to clear the clipboard after
a paste action. You cannot add a new item until the old item is cleared

Apple used to have a Finder Clear Clipboard command but is became history.

Can this easy AppleScrip be converted to Automator format?
