I used to use the link section of my blog quite a bit. Honestly I don’t often anymore and some of my favorites are no longer active. I wanted to shorten my super long left hand column, but not lose the links although, so here are what I previously had linked.

In 2015 they combined the two blogs, but left the old Flynn Mansion blog up.
