The Daily Post had a Daily Prompt today called Privacy, and this is what it said:

DAILY PROMPT

Privacy

Write a new post in response to today’s one-word prompt.

Not sure how to participate?

Here are the steps to get started.

And this is my response:

Privacy

I would like to mostly focus on computer and online privacy with today’s prompt, and I will start with some simple online/computer privacy and security tips by Microsoft called Protect Your Privacy On The Internet:

https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/safety/online-privacy/prevent.aspx

I recommend following those tips from Microsoft in the link above, keeping your software/apps updated (up-to-date), using an ad blocker/general purpose blocker browser extension like UBlock Origin (uBlock Origin), using a free version of an on-demand backup anti-malware scanner like Zemana AntiMalware Free as another layer of protection to manually scan files/drives/devices before you use or open them and scan your computer/devices at least once a week, and use skepticism and common sense to help you protect your privacy and yourself and your computer/devices et cetera.

My Former Uncle DE Trying To Get My Cousin DE To Accept Help

I went to bed too late and I had to wake up early for work so I did not get enough sleep last night, to make things worse I woke up during the night because of my stomach bothering me from something that I ate so I had to use the bathroom for a while and take some apple cider vinegar before I could go back to sleep (I felt better once I woke up again later for work), and I did not voice record the dreams before this point so now I can only barely remember part of one dream from last night.

All that I can remember of this dream now is that I was inside The E House or a house where The E House should be with my family, it was possibly night, and I remember my dad talking to my former uncle DE (who I will just call my uncle DE).

My uncle DE was talking to my dad about my male cousin DE (the son of my uncle DE) and he was desperately trying to get my dad and maybe my mom to try to help him again because my cousin DE was in a possibly life and death situation that involved some health problems and other problems but my cousin DE was refusing to accept help, and my uncle DE was trying to convince my cousin DE to let them take him to the hospital to get help before it is too late so he wanted my dad and/or mom to once again try to convince my cousin DE to get help before it is possibly too late.

The next thing that I remember is being outside during maybe the evening or late afternoon at or somehow seeing a slightly fictional version of the area that is not too far from the former first B Church building in the city of D where another church has a small building that is sometimes used for youth activities and other things, and there are a few other buildings and businesses in this area and in my dream there was a sidewalk.

I found out that the small church building and another building were going to be demolished for some unknown reason(s), maybe I heard this on the news but I can not remember, and I had heard that the actor Henry Cavill had some connection to this area (maybe he filmed some scenes for a film here and he had some good things to say about the area, and/or something like that) so I wondered if he knew about this and I wondered if he would try to stop these buildings from being demolished by buying both buildings to save them.

I assumed that Mr. Cavill probably did not know about this so I considered trying to find a way to tell him so that he could try to save these two buildings from being demolished, but that is all that I can remember of this part of the dream.

The last part of the dream took place during the next day when my brother GC and I were walking outside from the yard of The E House toward where The R Trailer (Mobile Home) used to be, but then we saw and heard our former uncle DE and maybe one or more people near one or more automobiles outside of our aunt JE’s house or where it should be.

It seemed that our male cousin DE was supposedly in that house instead of The G House oddly, and our uncle DE was trying to get him to come outside and leave with them so that they could take him to the hospital to get help before it is too late.

I did not want them to see us because I did not want to get involved so my brother GC and I tried to move to the right to walk the other way hoping that our uncle DE would not see us, but he saw us and he walked over to talk to us.

He told us that he believed that our cousin DE was barricaded inside the house, he had not seen or heard him yet, but they could not push open the front door because something heavy seemed to be behind it.

Our uncle DE was still trying to get our cousin DE to go to the hospital to get help before it is too late, our uncle DE followed us to The E House to talk to our dad again, and once inside the house he once again explained the situation and continued trying to get my family to once again try to convince my cousin DE to get some help before it is too late but I woke up.

Words Of My Father

Years ago my dad was lecturing my brothers and I maybe after some of my brothers and/or I had been arguing or fighting or something like that but I can not remember, and he made a statement that my brothers and I thought was funny and that did not make sense to us (unless you try to think deeply about it, and find or make some sense in/of it; which I can):

If you can’t get along with others, how are you going to get along with yourself? -JC

Our dad often says things that do not make sense, accidentally says the wrong thing when he means to say something else, sometimes he uses words that do not exist, sometimes he pronounces words incorrectly and in strange ways, sometimes he uses words incorrectly, and so I might start blogging some of the memorable quotes/sayings/words/et cetera sometimes before I forget them.

An American Tail-Like Film?

I went to bed too late so I did not get enough sleep but I slept good, but I did not voice record my dreams until the end so I barely remember part of several dreams from last night.

Dream 1

All that I can remember of this dream is that it took place in maybe my parent’s yard, and it involved one of the black and white kittens.

But that is all that I can remember of this dream.

Dream 2

This dream possibly involved my male cousin DE and/or someone else, but that is all that I can remember of this dream.

Dream 3

All that I can remember of this dream is that my parent’s or just my mom and I were watching an animated film that someone made that reminded me of the animated film An American Tail:

The film was about animated mice who could walk and talk, and some of them probably looked and dressed and sounded and acted like members of the Mousekewitzes family from the animated film An American Tail like the main character Fievel Mousekewitz and Papa Mousekewitz.

I think that I remember Papa Mousekewitz warning Fievel about something, and later I remember that there was fighting going on because a battle was taking place and one of the mice threw a knife at another mouse.

The camera did not show what happened but you heard the knife hit something, the way that it was filmed made it seem like maybe the other mouse got hit by the knife and died, but this was never revealed/shown to the audience.

The way that this was filmed made it seem a bit too graphic for kids in my opinion, even though nothing was shown, which I surprised me and I thought that it was interesting that it made me feel that way even without showing anything because that moment was filmed so seriously that it seemed and sounded too realistic.

My mom agreed with me about that scene seeming too graphic for kids, but that is all that I can remember of this dream.

Golf World And/Or East World And A Wedding Or Wedding Rehearsal?

Dream 1

My voice recording of this dream mentioned something about my mom being in a parking lot (probably in her automobile), and then something about a place called Golf World and/or East World that was near or where the shopping center is near W Park in the city of D near where Save-A-Lot should be and/or it was in the second dream out in the countryside.

Golf World and East World were possibly two different places that were next to each other but I can not remember, they both possibly had grass and/or parking lots and one or more buildings, but I can not remember.

All that I can remember is that it was day and I was following a group of kids and young adults who were following an overweight woman with medium-dark brownish-color skin with black hair, we were possibly walking through and/or from Golf World and/or East World but I am not sure.

I was younger again, maybe high school age, and I think that my former female classmate AW was with us.

The woman led us to a church and we went inside the church, a young man and young woman with medium-dark brownish-color skin with black hair were here to get married and/or this was their wedding rehearsal, and they were family members of maybe my former classmate AW.

I can not remember what happened other than the woman’s sister (who was already inside the church waiting on us) getting angry with her because she got someone else to do something that I can not remember (it possibly had something to do with the wedding), and I remember that the young man and the young woman either got married or they rehearsed their wedding.

I know that more happened and that more was said, but I can not remember the details.

After this I went to leave the church, my mom drove up in the parking lot to pick up a kid or adult with special needs who was with our group, but that is all that I can remember of this dream.

Dream 2

All that I can remember of this dream is that it took place in the countryside, my family and I seemed to be living in a very small community in the countryside, and there was lots of grass and fields and farm land with homemade barbed wire fences separating each yard.

We only had a few neighbors in this small community, but we all seemed pretty close even though we were not related to any of our neighbors.

Golf World and/or East World were possibly in this dream, but I can not remember.

This dream possibly took place over time, maybe days or weeks or longer, and it involved community stuff between my family and the neighbors.

There was possibly a threat in the yard of the neighbor living on the right side of our yard, we possibly had to worry about and deal with that threat, but I can not remember and that is all that I can remember of this dream.
