In between T-storms, I kicked-on the Xiegu G90 to check if the local HAM dared to venture out on the local 10M chit-chat FREQ of 28.415MHz USB. No, but to my surprise, Sporadic 'E' was very much hopping from TX, OK, AR, and KS, states. So, I broke-in and worked several stations on 10W. I even said "HI" again to a dude that I worked 10M from KS last year. Then, T-storms came back through, and I had to get off-air, but that was a pleasant surprise, at least. I did peak on to the CB FREQ's to see them hopping as well, especially, CH 6, CH 15, CH 28, and the higher LSB CH's 36 - 40. 
I was asked if I liked the 80's pop band The Go-Go's, and I answered that I listened to them, like many other Top 40 pop bands of the time, so Eh. However, I did mention that I did kind of feel sorry for them, since I thought that the band members couldn't have sex. I was then asked, "What do you mean?" My reply was, "Duh... They sing about it themselves, their lips are sealed!".
