Context, Critical Thinking, Continuous Learning: Project Do Better

     A newer post mentions my all time favorite show, El Ministerio del Tiempo (sorry Babylon 5!!), and how an old friend told me, after watching an episode together, that one of her relatives had  gone to Spain, and fought in the Spanish Civil War as part of the Lincoln Brigade which turned out to have been known officially as the Lincoln Batallion.
