It was Saturday, under the sign of Cancer. The US president was George W. Bush (Republican). In that special week of July people in US were listening to Do I Make You Proud by Taylor Hicks. In UK I Wish I Was A Punk Rocker (With Flowers In My Hair) by Sandi Thom was in the top 5 hits. Oborona Sevastopolya, directed by Vasili Goncharov, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2006 while Marley & Me by John Grogan was one of the best selling books.
