2. Bertil Uggla – Athlete. Author. Pajama enthusiast?

3. Sit and Dance – An exercise designed for the elderly and other people who are chair-bound: nice. Decorating the set with beach balls, palm trees, and surf boards: cool. A Hawaiian dance that consists primarily of people marching in place: what the hula?
