Get rid of the emacs menubar!

At least on older ubuntu the menubar of emacs is kind of biggish. I looked around to see if I could make it smaller when I realized that I could just as well get rid of it all together with:
menu-bar-mode -1
in .emacs (C-u -1 M-x menu-bar-mode) to get a real clean look of emacs

While writing of .emacs these are a must of configuration for me:

;; Tab Expand, search in buffers for possible completions of word
;;(global-set-key (kbd “C-M-<tab>”) ‘dabbrev-expand)
;;(define-key minibuffer-local-map (kbd “C-M-<tab>”) ‘dabbrev-expand)

(global-set-key (kbd “C-<tab>”) ‘dabbrev-expand)
(define-key minibuffer-local-map (kbd “C-<tab>”) ‘dabbrev-expand)

;; Show which parenthesis belongs together upon placing the cursor on one of
;; them

(show-paren-mode t)
