The rich and famous islanders of Martha's Vineyard should lower their voices the next time they stop by Sunporch Books in Oak Bluffs. Little do they know that proprietor Holly Nadler has been collecting every dollop of gossip she has overheard. Among the tales Nadler shares in her new book, Vineyard Confidential: Bruce Willis reputedly hit on 137 waitresses during his Vineyard visits over the years. According to Nadler, he scored with precisely zero. Woody Allen once faxed a list of requirements to a real estate agent who was supposed to show him properties.

For 20 years after his military service in Vietnam ended in 1968, Morgan Monceaux roamed the country working odd jobs -- short-order cook, gas-station attendant, janitor. When he got bored, he'd pick up and move to the next place. He wandered from Washing-ton state to Florida and to points in between. He hitched rides and slept wherever he could lay his head. He dug meals out of dumpsters; for a while he was homeless. Then in 1990, when he was 43, he began to paint. He was living in an abandoned building in the South Bronx in New York City.

HIGH POINT, N.C. -- The folks at Martha Stewart Living say it happens all the time. Someone will write, call or e-mail saying she just must have the sofa or the table or the mirror pictured in the magazine. Many of those pieces are part of Stewart's own collection, filling her stone house on the Maine coast or her 19th-century home on the eastern shore of Long Island. They often are antiques or one-of-a-kind items, not available in typical furniture stores. Until now. Stewart's first venture into furniture was unveiled recently at the International Home Furnishings Market in High Point with the 175-piece Martha Stewart Signature collection by Bernhardt.

Robert Borkenstein, 89, inventor of the Breathalyzer, died Saturday in Bloomington, Ind. A former Indiana University professor and state police captain, Mr. Borkenstein invented the portable device while working at the state police crime laboratory in 1954. The Breathalyzer measures alcohol content in a person's breath. He also was principal investigator in a 1962 study of the role of alcohol in traffic accidents that influenced the development of drunken driving laws. "If we can make life better simply by controlling alcohol, that's a very small price to pay," Mr. Borkenstein said in 1995.

SOUTHAMPTON, N.Y. - To take the temperature of excess in the Hamptons this summer, join Jay Lieberman in the shower of the new 12,000-square-foot house that he hopes to sell for $8 million, preferably to someone who will pay cash. Lieberman, a builder, has taken a seat in the glassed-in shower stall of the "his" bathroom in the master bedroom. He proudly points to a shower head that is 10 inches in diameter and is capable of caressing the human body with 22 gallons of water per minute (about nine times the maximum flow allowed in New York state, but unlikely to result in any legal woes)
