Take me back to July 10, 2000

Let's take a stroll down memory lane.

It is Monday, July 10, 2000. Anyone born today will have the star sign Cancer. The weekend has just passed, so some people are feeling a bit down. Others are tired after partying too much.

The 4th of July celebrations in America have come and passed. The summer of 2000 is in full swing. The weather is warm, and the evenings are brighter than usual. Most schools and colleges are now finished until August or September. In America, the song "Be With You" by Enrique Iglesias is at the top of the singles charts, while "The Real Slim Shady" by Eminem is the number-one song in the UK.

Bill Clinton is the President of the United States, and the movie Scary Movie is at the top of the box office. Tony Blair is the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom. A relatively new form of communication called "text messaging" is becoming more widespread. Although the technology has been around since the mid-1990s, it was only recently that cell providers allowed users to send SMS messages to people on different networks.

The Nokia 3210 is currently one of the most popular cellphones on the market. In technology news, more and more music companies are beginning to release MP3 players. The new MP3 format means that music listeners are able to listen to multiple albums on the go. It's the year 2000, so the music charts are being dominated by the likes of Christina Aguilera, Faith Hill, Savage Garden, Destiny's Child, Santana, Sisqó, Creed, Aaliyah and Enrique Iglesias.

If you were to travel back to this day, notable figures such as Yokozuna, Kirsty MacColl, Dale Earnhardt, and Jennifer Syme would all still be alive. On TV, people are watching popular shows such as "JAG", "7th Heaven", "Oz", and "Angel". Meanwhile, gamers are playing titles such as "Pokémon Red and Blue", "Rayman 2: The Great Escape", "Unreal Tournament", and "Crazy Taxi".

Kids and teenagers are watching TV shows such as "Postman Pat", "Blue's Clues", "Pokemon", and "City Guys". Popular toys at the moment include Star Wars Phantom Menace figures, Amazing Ally, Rocket the Wonder Dog, and Poo-Chi (robot dog).
