"Because in Cyberspace, no one can hear you scream."

[Media Source*] After a long delay (via life and all) Blogger Delights has returned! Today's featured nation (which ironically was yesterday's but will be posted today in order to "catch up") is China, the land of a billion plus people! Unless you have several years (and some cash to spend) a visitor will not be able to learn all there is about this great nation as it's landscape varies just as much (if not more) than the United States. Perhaps some bloggers can inform us about this expansive "sub continent."
Garvin is posting about a Gregorian Calendar hack (is this for blogger?) while Blue Sky (via the Universal Translator) seems to blog about how Microsoft dominates all (although he mentions nothing about Google and friends striking back). We will wait until he updates his blog to understand his reasoning behind that.
Our Chinese bloggers seem silent, as many of them (like Ice Butterfly) have stopped blogging last year. Fortunately Whistle has kept the momentum and
Rachel from Singapore turns 16 today and blogs about everything from her friends bringing her presents to her love of Star Wars and the Jedi. Although the Sith's are pretty cool, and if she doesn't agree then she hasn't read Darth Vader's blog about life and chasing down Luke Skywalker (Warning: Blog is totally hilarious).
Aline from Austalia turns 19 today and it seems her friends wish her a happy birthday as well. Although she seems pretty upset about the comment spam appearing on her blog site. Perhaps she needs to install Type Key on her blog.
Mr. Cavalier turns another "big one" today, and seems to have passed his exams and is now preparing for some "Law Review" competition (good luck Mr. Cavalier and drink lots of Water Joe if coffee is not available).
Jason from America turns 28 today and has a beautiful pictures of his daughter and cousin on his blog site. Jason is a youth minister and also blogs at the Youth Ministry Forum as well at Brian's site "This Road We Travel." Unfortunately only the latter is listed on Blogs 4 God and it would helpful to see the former two listed as well. (note: if you need a "button" on the side of your blog, feel free to use this one and upload it onto a photo hosting server of your choice)
Kornflake from Canada turns 25 today and her blog journal seems to be "too true and too rude," although it reflects how she feels about life. This blogger recommends she try Audio Blogger and see if it helps express her thoughts more clearly. (note: it's free courtesy of Blogger)
Joydeep from India turns 24 and seems to have several blogs out there ranging from an Alumni blog to a more personal journal (note: noticed some "displaying errors" on the post template pages). He does have an interesting post about how 32 million people walked miles in order to take a dip into a river, and he has the picture to prove it!
Elvera from Indonesia is a year older and has an interesting post about a street seller claiming that cobra blood can make men stronger. Although she would rather starve than drink that stuff, (as any reasonable blogger would) this blogger (who happens to hate coffee) would rather drink Water Joe than cobra blood (regardless of the benefits). Selah?
Blogger Delights brings highlights from various nations as well as celebrating birthdays throughout the blogosphere. If one is interested in visiting some of these blogs, simply click here.
Update: Made a correction above with the IBM post (perhaps I should have used an eraser instead...*smiles*)
