Deborah and Gary Aufdenspring
This school year, we're living in Napa, California
with our four cats. The cats were not enchanted with moving again. We came
to Napa last July from Angels Camp, California so that Deborah could teach
U. S. History at Napa's New Technology High School, which opened in September.
Our site has expanded a bit. Descriptions of each section of the site are
given below. You might read the desriptions, or you can skip to a site

Deborah once again has a full slate of web pages about her classes, aimed
at her students, their parents, and other teachers. The 20 pages include:
course description and outline; homework help; student work, including some
interesting haiku about historical events and some analysis of music videos;
lesson plans to share with other teachers; a catch-all page about a Congressional
committee that held hearings at New Tech High; and some fun stuff. There's
also a bit about Deborah this time. If you've arrived at this page expecting
the Bret Harte High School pages from last year, "Ms A's Class"
is still where you want to go.
A couple of years back, we did a Macintosh program about the history
of attempts to split California into two or more states. We are going to
attempt to port the entire program over to the web, including the hundreds
of maps, animations, and video and audio clips from the state legislature.
This effort may take quite awhile as we will do it in our spare time (ha!).
The porting of the program is being done for free for the benefit of California
students. If you know someone who would like to sponsor the effort, it would
speed up the process.
Want to buy the house we lived in in Angels Camp, CA? Find out a little
about the house, the goldrush town of Angels Camp, and ways to reach our
Realtor© by going to this page. It's a modest page. Don't expect the
publicity-garnering presentation that Gary did for the telecommuting home
in Nevada City (see below).
Our brother-in-law, Tom Follett of Tucson, has a piece of commercial
property for sale. This 27,500 square foot lot fronts on Scottsdale Road
in Tempe, just down from the Scottsdale City Limit. This property is for
sale by owner, broker co-op encouraged.
In 1994, we put together a real estate program about a house in Nevada
City, California and its' telecommuting potential. The program and its'
telecommuting aspect attracted some public notice and reviews. Requests
for it have continued. The program is no longer available, but we can point
you towards a couple of places where it might be available for download.
Gary has no connection anymore with the Poison Oak Show that he started.

Before his death, Gary's father wrote a memoir, with pictures, about
California's Borrego Valley (Anza-Borrego) in 1929. Here's a bit of local
history for folks in San Diego County.
