In the 1950's the US Weather Bureau came up with a numbering system to classify clouds. At first there were only nine types of clouds, nine being the biggest, fluffiest cloud, the cumulonimbus. Hence the phrase "sitting on cloud nine". However they then discovered another type of cloud, moving the cumulonimbus cloud to number ten. Don't fret kids, it just means bliss is sitting on ten.

"Ain't nothing like the real thing baby, ain't nothing like the real thing", "So glad we got the real thing baby, so glad we got the real thing"
Life just isn't the same without my favourite easy-listening radio station. I've searched and searched for a station so good now that I've moved, but Marvin Gaye had it right, there ain't nothing like the real thing. Today I managed to find a stream from America which is pretty damn fine but its pretty crackly, but I'll listen anyway just to feel that calming sooth that easy-listening gives. So in short, appreciate the sounds you find because you never know how rare they are.
