Piers Morgan on Good Morning Britain, review: 'a rowdy man-child' -...
Six o’clock in the morning, and you wake up to me. ” Thus, with his internationally renowned modesty, Piers Morgan joined Good Morning Britain (ITV) as guest presenter for a week. Despite fulsome welcomes from fellow presenters Susanna Reid and Ranvir Singh, the smiles looked strained and there was a palpable unease at the desk. So it went for 50 minutes or so, with Reid and Morgan ostensibly joshing along nicely yet all the while jostling for position – Reid batting away accusations of flirting through gritted teeth. ” But it wasn’t until Morgan broke in on Reid’s soft-peddling interview with shadow chancellor Ed Balls on the new-launched Labour election manifesto that things really began to stir. “Let’s cut to the quick, Ed,” Morgan muscled in, presumably with the intention of jerking us out of bleary early-morning sofa-land and into the world of hard-ball politics. Which Balls evaded with practiced slipperiness, and even managed to turn the tables, answering Morgan’s attempts to get him on the back foot with the zinger that he’d have to “get used to presenting” this type of show - Morgan's own primetime chat...

Sean Wilkinson Dissects Might & Main's Roaring Restaurant Successes - Eater
Five year old design firm Might & Main has designed many of Portland's hottest restaurants , including two current nominees for prestigious James Beard awards .

I totally credit [co-owners] Arlin [Smith], Andrew [Taylor], and Mike [Wiley] with why we are where we are now. You don't end up where we've been by working on mediocre restaurants.

At some point in middle school I even set up my room as a bar. I turned my bureau around and filled the drawers with bottles of colored water. How'd your parents feel about it. I don't think they were particularly worried about it, since it was centered more around the act of hanging out than it was about drinking.
