It was Sunday, under the sign of Virgo (see birth chart on August 31, 1997). The US president was Bill Clinton (Democrat). In that special week of August people in US were listening to Mo Money, Mo Problems by The Notorious B.I.G.. In UK I'll Be Missing You by Puff Daddy & Faith Evans was in the top 5 hits. Boogie Nights, directed by Paul Thomas Anderson, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1997 while Chasing Cezanne by Peter Mayle was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Noah's Ark. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Carmen Sandiego's Great Chase Through Time or Ark of Time.
