Blogger Confusion

It won't surprise anyone that I am perpetually confused about many a thing, and now Blogger is adding to that confusion.  First of all, when I log into Blogger I get this huge yellow square telling me something about the European Union.  What's that about?  At the bottom of the same square there is a separate section telling me that Blogger no longer accepts OpenID.  What in the world is that?  And this morning I get an email, supposedly from Blogger, saying that they want me to confirm that I still want email notifications for comments on my blog and if I do I should click the link provided.  Is this on the up-and-up?  I do know that the comments on my previous post have not been sent to my email account so I can try to answer them.  Is there something I'm supposed to do so I don't have that big yellow square assaulting me every time I log in?  Is it okay to click the link in that email?

Just A Quickie Questions Re Linen

I'm still here!  I did get a new laptop and have been trying to go through all the transferred files and photos from an old laptop and even older desktop.  I'm now at a standstill because John's mouse gave up the ghost and I had to let him use mine lest he totally fall apart without access to his own computer.  He hated my old laptop and he hates my new one.  Yes, I could use the touchpad or whatever it's called on my laptop but I hate touchpads.  John decided to take a nap so I came down to his computer to write this quick post.

I have a design I'm thinking of stitching … And They Sinned.

If I use 40 count linen I will need a cut that measures 15" wide x 47" long.  If I use 36 count linen I will need a cut that measures 16" wide x 51" long.  I seem to remember a discussion or two once upon a time where it was said that it was a bad idea to take a width of linen and turn it lengthwise to stitch on it.  I don't want to buy a full yard and a half of linen to get the length I need when I just need 15" or 16" width.  I also seem to remember that a shop (or shops) in the UK sell long cuts so this might be an option.  If so, can anyone point me in the direction of one?

Your input will be greatly appreciated.
