block ,  I was checking more from the programming perspective  and if
I need to avoid it and if its recommended

 I was using it with create_data function in the below code .  If
create_dataset failed the exception would be caught  , I think you are
right I need not worry about returning False

    functions = [create_logdir, create_dataset]
    for func in functions:
        except Exception as e:
            return False
