My niece getting up from sleep
I have been dabbling with audio recordings since quite sometime now. Recently acquired Zoom H1 and just yesterday recorded these two audio files and now putting this here to test how exactly the embedding options work on Blogger blogs.

I learnt very late that I better not interact with friends & family on social media sites. In fact, I have blocked few of my best friends on Facebook and don't follow any of my relatives, except one, on Twitter. I don't know or have forgotten the reason why I blocked them many years ago. But now it just doesn't matter, neither to them, nor to me. I believe, social media can or should never replace our personal interaction with friends and family. That is why I dislike large family and friends WhatsApp groups. It, eventually, kind of becomes a substitute for the actual interaction.

Yesterday, I went to a shop near my uncle's house to buy groceries for my aunt. The shop which was reasonably a big one, was surprisingly manned by a very young and talkative kid.
He started conversing with me as if he had known me for ages. He was continuously talking about cricket and asked if I was following the t20 world cup. When I said I only watched test cricket and stopped watching that too, of late, he had a look of someone talking to an alien. Said he liked Dhoni and I was also surprised when he started rattling about the spot fixing controversy. Going by his size, I thought he was wasn't aged beyond 9 years. But then, when I asked if he was going to school, he said he was now in sixth standard. Only then I realised it was the summer holidays for him.
I was done with the purchasing at the stores and enquired if there was any shop, nearby, which sold milk. He immediately said, "We sell milk too" (with an expression of how could I not know). I confessed, I was from a different locality and had come to my uncle's place and didn't know much about the area.
Gave him the money, he ran home and got me the change. I chatted with him for a couple of minutes about his schooling and cricket and said bye to him and was about to start the bike, when he innocently asked, "You are not going to come here next time, no?"
I knew, perhaps, I wouldn't visit that shop again. But I didn't want to disappoint him. He perhaps asked that question very casually, or not. But to me, who had come to the shop only minutes after saying goodbye to my uncle's dead body, it sounded very differently. Lied to him and said, "No, I might come again."

One of the good features of this app is the in-built browser for viewing the links inside the blog posts. That is really a relief, since I do not want the app to open the default Belle browser just for checking the links (for that matter I do not want to open the default Belle browser for anything. Opera Mini and Mobile both do better job than Belle browser).
Update: Ovi Store link of free version of Blob
Update 2: The limitation is actually with regard to creating of blog posts. One can only view and delete blog posts in the free version. But with free version you can have a first hand experience of the text editor of Blob.
