US date format: 7/11/2006, UK date format: 11/7/2006

It was Tuesday, under the sign of Cancer (see birth chart on July 11, 2006). The US president was George W. Bush (Republican), the UK Prime Minister was Tony Blair (Labour), Pope Benedict XVI was leading the Catholic Church. In that special week of July people in US were listening to Promiscuous by Nelly Furtado. In UK Hips Don't Lie by Shakira featuring Wyclef Jean was in the top 5 hits. Heavens Fall, directed by Terry Green, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2006 while Black Order by James Rollins was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Eureka. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Birth of America or Quickspot.
