Just saw that I last blogged in mid June. Whoa. Summer sure has a way of getting away from me (which is probably the opposite of how our guests feel, i.e., getting away for the summer). But here's a taste of what the summe...

Clearing Rejections
This week I met a delightful woman who is a fellow writer of
the same vintage as I am – i.e., we both worked when writing still paid (for example: HuffPost expects writers to contribute for free ) and midlist authors weren’t being dropped  by the
Big Five p...

So the other day Chris answered the phone to someone from FiOS1 News Long Island, who are planning a segment called "East End Bed & Bites" for their show "Restaurant Hunter". And they want to feature A Butler's Manor's breakf...

It's about that time of the year where I remind people that a lot continues to happen in the Hamptons post-Labor Day. Crowds on the beach are gone! This year, we have some intriguing new options. First, tonight begins the...

Many unhappy returns
Print-on-demand (POD) technology and, especially Amazon.com, has changed book royalty reporting and payment dramatically. A Butler's Life was first published by Frederic C. Beil Publisher , and as in most traditional publishing practices, I received a royal...

We had a pretty crazy week here at A Butler's Manor, and thus it slipped my mind that this was the week when the segment "East End Bed & Bites" on the Fios1 show Restaurant Hunters: Long Island would go live. Then this aftern...

I've written before about how cool it is to have guests who come back often, whom you get to know year after year while sharing a tiny part of their lives, watching them grow and go on to new opportunities. It's sort of like ...

Ah, the dog days of summer. Someone asked me the other day how many recipes I had. Huh. I know I have over 50 featured in A Butler's Manor: The Cookbook (available here at A Butler's Manor, or I'll happily sign and mail yo...

You know how you see the commercials where 50 people are crawling over a car showroom, everyone is happy and everyone is buying a car? When have you EVER seen an actual dealership that looks like that? Guess what: Bill Kolb Subaru DOES look like that. There are what seems like hundreds of cars, new and used, on the lot, lots of very friendly, knowledgable, and NO PRESSURE salespeople on the floor--all dressed in matching golf shirts with their names on it, which is just another indication that this is a TEAM effort here. No wonder that this dealership has consistently won customer service and sales awards and is a leader on the whle East Coast. This is a no-haggle dealership, so you don't feel intimidated or ripped off. This is the second Outback we've bought from this dealership even though they are 125 miles from our home (and there are closer Subaru dealerships) because the price, the selection, and the customer service is that good. Special shout outs to Sam, who sheparded us through a purchase mostly handled by telephone and email...Paul, who provided solid advice and assistance in arranging financing...and Larry, who helped close the deal and provided a "welcome" to my new car. One hundred twenty-five miles, one way...in the rain...returning during rush hour...and I'd still go back. I recommend this dealership and all of its employees highly.
