DFMini Blockly Code

@Bill SCHONFELDER , @Oscar Ferruz and I had a series of discussions about implementing the DFMini with the Otto Blockly code. There is a simple solution to the problem of disconnecting the RX/TX pins which are coded to pins 0/1 if the Blockly code is changed in a minimal way.

Would it be possible to modify things so that the following two lines are be added in a setup block:

#include <SoftwareSerial.h>
SoftwareSerial DFMiniserial(10,11);

and where you see Serial.begin() and Serial.write() these simply become DFMiniserial.begin() and DFMiniserial.write().

Good buddy Bill SCHONFELDER here are another series of new blocks that i suggest you to try, since you are big fan of mp3, i recommend you to buy a "open smart mp3 player" cost around 10 bucks https://acoptex.com/project/250/basics-project-051b-serial-mp3-player-module-with-1w-speaker-by-open-smart-at-acoptexcom/

In this way you can program the mp3 audio actions together with your Arduino nano instead of separate devices like you did before.
