Take me back to October 7th, 2004!

Let's take a stroll down memory lane!

The date is October 7th, 2004, and it's a Thursday. Anyone born today will have the star sign Libra. The summer is long gone. Temperatures have started to become much cooler and the evenings are beginning to get darker.

Fallen leaves have carpeted driveways, lawns, pathways and sidewalks and there's a fresh earthy scent in the ear. In America, the song Goodies by Ciara is on top of the singles charts. Over in the UK, Call On Me by Eric Prydz is the number one hit song.

George W. Bush Jnr. is currently the President of the United States, and the movie The Forgotten is at the top of the Box Office. In the United Kingdom, Tony Blair is the current Prime Minister. 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.

A popular software program called LimeWire is currently being used by many people to share music, software and videos. It is also a haven for computer viruses. Cameras on phones are beginning to become more and more popular. Although the photographs that they take are still lacking in quality. Internet users are using MSN Messenger to chat with each other online.

It's 2004, so the music charts are being dominated by the likes of Usher, Alicia Keys, Maroon 5, OutKast, Mario Winans, the Terror Squad and Ciara. If you were to travel back to this day, notable figures such as ODB, Dimebag Darrell, Johnnie Cochran and Pope John Paul II would all be still alive. On TV, people are watching popular shows such as "Malcolm in the Middle", "Smallville", "24" and "Desperate Housewives".

Meanwhile, gamers are playing titles such as "SSX 3", "Tony Hawk's Underground", "Call of Duty" and "Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time". Kids and teenagers are watching TV shows such as "CatDog", "Malcolm in the Middle", "That's So Raven" and "My Life as a Teenage Robot". If you're a kid or a teenager, then you're probably playing with toys such as HitClips audio player, the PlayStation 2, Bratz dolls and Beyblades (spinning top toys).
