Just an update on this in case it is useful to others.
Following Jerry's suggestion, I wrote a script (stored on USB) that
installs a new version of the file:
containing the set of activites that we want, and also removes (renames)
On rebooting, the favorite_activities file is recreated from the new
and we get just the list of favorites in the Ring that we want. No other
user interaction is required.
