Take me back to March 10th, 2003!

Let's take a stroll down memory lane!

The date is March 10th, 2003, and it's a Monday. Anyone born today will have the star sign Pisces. The weekend has just passed, so some people are feeling a bit down. Others are tired after partying too much.

Spring has started to creep in, and the days are beginning to get longer. In America, the song In Da Club by 50 Cent is at the top of the singles charts. Over in the UK, Beautiful by Christina Aguilera is the number-one hit song.

George W. Bush Jnr. is the President of the United States, and the movie Cradle 2 the Grave is at the top of the box office. Tony Blair is the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom. In technology news, more and more people are beginning to gain access to the Internet. Internet speeds are increasing and MP3 sharing is beginning to threaten the existence of music stores.

People are using a software program called LimeWire to share music, software, and videos. Unfortunately, it is also a haven for computer viruses. Smartphones don't exist yet. There are no Androids or iPhones. Cameras on phones are quickly becoming the norm. However, the photographs that they take are still lacking in quality.

It's 2003, so the music charts are being dominated by the likes of 50 Cent, R. Kelly, Sean Paul, 3 Doors Down, Nelly, Evanescence, Chingy and Beyonce. An American restaurant owner has recently attracted media attention by renaming "French Fries" as "Freedom Fries". This was in response to France's opposition to the invasion of Iraq. If you were to travel back to this day, notable figures such as Barry White, Bob Hope, Charles Bronson, and John Ritter would all still be alive.

On TV, people are watching popular shows such as "Everybody Loves Raymond", "The Royle Family", "Angel", and "Home Movies". Meanwhile, gamers are playing titles such as "Battlefield 1942", "Unreal Tournament 2003", "Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit 2", and "Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell". Children and teenagers are watching television shows such as "Bear in the Big Blue House", "Dawson's Creek", "Ed, Edd n Eddy", and "Grounded for Life".

Popular toys at the moment include Betty Spaghetty (doll), the PlayStation 2, the Game Boy Advance, and Yu-Gi-Oh! Trading Card Game.
