Willard (Bill) Paul

Welcome to my web site. My name is Willard Paul, but my friends call me Bill. There are a number of people — I once counted nineteen — in the United States who share my name. People tell me I have two first names. I like to say I have two last names, for my first name is my paternal grandmother's last name.


I have no claim to fame nor to notoriety, but I do have a lot of friends and, of course, even more acquaintances. You may number yourself among them or you may be a complete stranger. Whatever your status, I hope you will explore my site and find something in it worthy of your returning from time to time and visiting with me.


This site is a work in progress. I have made a number of attempts in the past to get past this home page and have had, for various reasons, not made much progress. I did have a personal site a few decades ago, but the Internet advanced and I did not. In more recent years I had been the webmaster of another site but the technology behind that site seemed to change every week or so. I did not want to be bothered with having to continually spend time learning new tricks in order to maintain a personal site. I think I have found a suitable platform to make it worth my time and effort to press on and develop this site.


If you have read this far, I thank you. To get a quick idea of who I am, see the “About Me” page. Please feel free to comment. I have provided a form for that purpose on the “Contact Me” page.
