Tuesday February 24, 2015

US date format: 2/24/2015, UK date format: 24/2/2015

It was Tuesday, under the sign of Pisces (see birth chart on February 24, 2015). The US president was Barack Obama (Democrat), the UK Prime Minister was David Cameron (Conservative). In that special week of February people in US were listening to Uptown Funk! by Mark Ronson Featuring Bruno Mars. The Invitation, directed by Karyn Kusama, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2015 while A Spool of Blue Thread by Anne Tyler was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching The Returned. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Dr. Mario: Miracle Cure or Hard West.
But much more happened that day: find out below..
