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. 1996.

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 index.

Ms A's Class

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.

E Unum Pluribus - Historical Attempts to Divide California

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.

House for Sale in Angels Camp

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).

Commercial Lot on Scottsdale Road, Tempe, Arizona

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.

The Telecommuting House

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.

Poison Oak Show

Gary has no connection anymore with the Poison Oak Show that he started.

Roadside Memorials

A Memoir of Borrego Valley in 1929 by Frank L. Aufdenspring

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.
