Take me back to July 10, 2003

Let's take a stroll down memory lane.

It is Thursday, July 10, 2003. Anyone born today will have the star sign Cancer. The 4th of July celebrations in America have come and passed.

The summer of 2003 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. The song "Crazy In Love" by Beyonce is at the top of the music charts in the United States and the United Kingdom. George W. Bush Jnr. is the President of the United States, and the movie Terminator 3 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.

If you were to travel back to this day, notable figures such as Bob Hope, Charles Bronson, John Ritter, and Johnny Cash would all still be alive. On TV, people are watching popular shows such as "That '70s Show", "Charmed", "Gilmore Girls", and "CSI: Miami". Meanwhile, gamers are playing titles such as "Kingdom Hearts", "Grand Theft Auto: Vice City", "Ratchet & Clank", and "Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell".

Kids and teenagers are watching TV shows such as "Caillou", "Static Shock", "The Cramp Twins", and "All Grown Up! (Rugrats)". Popular toys at the moment include What's Her Face (doll), Chicken Dance Elmo, KG Racer automites, and Cranium Cadoo.
