a Hallmark holiday romance starring Kellie Martin
The Twelve Gifts of Christmas a holiday marathon of new Hallmark movies
The holiday movie stars Emmy nominee Kellie Martin along with Emmy nominee Cameron Mathison (“Window Wonderland,” “All My Children,” “See Jane Date”), Jewel Staite (“The Killing,” “The LA Complex”) and Brendan Meyer (“Cedar Cove,”"Mr. Young”), according to information from Hallmark Channel.
The movie opens with a woman skating solo at a skating rink and then riding her bicycle to her small bike shop, where she has one employee. The woman is newly widowed Kathy (Martin), whose grief over the death of her husband is still palatable several months later.
Christmas memories are painful for Kathy, so she plans to skip out on decking the halls and trimming the tree this Christmas, trying to avoid anything that will bring back memories of her late husband. The only Christmas tradition she will keep is baking holiday cookies, which her friends look forward to eating. Baking cookies has been a passion since childhood and the results are delicious.
When her friend Jena (Staite) tries to shake Kathy out of the doldrums by taking her to a Christmas tree lot, she meets Tim (Mathison), the handsome owner of the shop and they hit it off immediately. They run into eachother a few times and a relationship buds, but Kathy is still not ready to let go of the past. Tim gives Kathy an ornament as a gift and starts to decorate a Christmas tree and gets into the holiday spirit.
Meanwhile, Kathy struggles with the bike shop’s finances. The shop was her late husband’s dream and she wants to keep his dream alive, but begins to realize that she is following his passion but not her own. When the neighboring business offers to buy her lease so he can expand into the space, her business manager advises her to sell and start to pursue her own interests.
Kathy takes a plate of Christmas cookies to Tim’s shop and ends up passing them out to customers. Her act of kindness results in requests to order her cookies and she starts filling orders through the shop that Tim and his nephew Connor (Meyer) manage.
Tim has been making plans to expand and the sale on the land he is buying goes through. He takes Kathy to see the property and even shows her a shop where she could sell her cookies year around. Kathy starts to feel excitement at the chance to move on with her own future.
Tim tells Kathy that his heart had been broken by his previous girlfriend, Rebecca. Just as Kathy thinks that she might open her heart to Tim, Rebecca comes back into the picture and wants to reunite with Tim.
With Christmas approaching, Kathy must decide if the Christmas ornament is a sign that she can have a hopeful future with Tim.
“A Christmas Ornament stars: Kellie Martin (Kathy), Cameron Mathison (Tim), Jewel Staite (Jenna), Brendan Meyer (Connor) and Matthew Kevin Anderson (Ben).A squat is a basic exercise that can be done with your body weight or by holding dumbbells or a barbell. It works your butt, quads and hamstrings. Stand with your feet hip to shoulder width apart, toes pointed straight ahead. Bend at the hips and knees, lowering your body as if you were sitting in a chair. Keep your chest lifted and lean your torso forward slightly as you lower until your thighs are parallel to the floor. Press through your heels and squeeze your glutes as you straighten your legs back to the start position for one complete repetition.
A stepup uses a platform or bench to work your quads and glutes. Choose a platform that is high enough to make the exercise challenging, but doesn’t bend your knee or hip past 90 degrees. Hold a dumbbell in each hand or use your own body weight. Place your right foot fully on the platform and press through your right foot, squeezing your glutes and lifting your body up off the floor supported on your right leg. Slowly lower your body back to the floor. Repeat all repetitions on your right leg before repeating with your left leg.American politicians should study the success of Hyundai Motor Co. car market. Our less than productive supposed leaders could learn several important lessons:
One, Hyundai learned quickly from its mistakes, did not waste a crisis, wasted absolutely no time in finger pointing and kept its vow to do better. entry, the Excel subcompact, was cheap in every sense of the word essentially noncompetitive. The company then did what it had to do to develop and maintain quality. It took big marketing gambles by offering much more for less, with having nothing to do with a reduction in product content or quality.
Two, Hyundai never forgot the middle and working classes. politicians and corporations failed to do. While our government was handing out bank bailout money sans meaningful prosecutions for wrongdoing, and companies nationwide were delivering pink slips to their employees, Hyundai was giving middle and working class people in this country a break assuring them that if they lost income through no fault of their own after purchasing a new Hyundai, the company would allow them to return the vehicle and back out of the deal with no blemish on their credit rating.
More than that, Hyundai promised to welcome back those once financially troubled buyers with excellent products and new vehicle financing once they were restored to solvency. That combination of compassion, innovation and now world competitive product quality has helped Hyundai which began producing cars in 1967, decades after its major rivals become the fourth largest automaker in the world in terms of sales. That fourth based on 2010 sales numbers, after Toyota, General Motors and Volkswagen.
For the past two years, Hyundai, formerly the laughingstock of the global automotive industry, has been the world fastest growing car company in terms of sales. A concrete example of how Hyundai achieved that success is the vehicle of today conversation, the completely redesigned 2012 Hyundai Azera luxury sedan.
I use the term luxury to codify Hyundai theory that those willing to spend $32,000 for a large family sedan should get a heck of a lot more than prestige for the money. They should get world class safety, fit and finish, world competitive exterior and interior design, and world class performance (ride, acceleration, braking and handling).
The 2012 Azera offers all those things at a base price of $32,000, easily price and content competitive with models such as the 2012 Acura ILX (with technology package), BMW 328i, Buick Regal and Lucerne, and Lexus ES350.
I suspect, based on conversations with Hyundai officials and others in the auto industry, that labor costs have much to do with Hyundai pricing advantage. Hyundai has some of the lowest employee compensation packages in the car industry. Hyundai plant in Montgomery, Ala., are upset over their pay, their discontent so far isn showing up in Hyundai product quality.
The Azera, built in Ulsan, South Korea, is a case in point. With its patented sculpture, in which lines and curves move into and out of one another in the manner of water blown by a gentle wind, the car visually stands out from everything in its class. It quite literally is mobile sculpture, in this case done for the masses. Interior design is tight and ergonomically comfortable, augmented at night by cabin mood lighting. The seats have been specially designed to reduce back injuries and whiplash neck damage in rear end collisions. There is, unfortunately, an abundance of hard plastic on the dashboard, one place where Hyundai apparently cut costs.
But there is compensation for that error in materials quality, in the form of the new Azera generous allocation of space. Tall, short, wide and narrow people can feel comfortable behind the wheel of this one. The driver seat is power adjustable to keep long legged types from feeling as if they sitting on the edge of a high bed. Back seat room can comfortably accommodate three normal size adult bodies on a long trip.
The Azera comes loaded with electronic infotainment amenities and aids, including a high resolution backup camera and Bluetooth phone and USB connections and, again, at a price many buyers can afford.
The 2012 Azera, so wonderfully improved over earlier models, including its XG350 predecessor, comes with a gasoline direct injection 3.3 liter V 6 engine (293 horsepower, 255 foot pounds of torque). That plenty of power.
You won feel cheated in an Azera, slotted between the mid size Sonata and the super upscale Genesis in Hyundai lineup. offerings, it seems to me that Hyundai respects its buyers too much to cheat or them.
Bottom line: The Azera belongs high on the list of anyone shopping for a full size family sedan in the $30,000 to $50,000 price range.
Ride, acceleration and handling: It gets very good marks in all three. good means that it will please law abiding drivers in all three categories but will probably do nothing to please habitual pedal to the metal enthusiasts. quotient: The Azera is one of the most attractive cars I driven in the past five years. It snapped necks and turned heads everywhere I drove and parked it. I look for more vehicle manufacturers to start imitating Hyundai sculpture concepts.
Body style/layout: The 2012 Hyundai Azera is a fully equipped front engine, front wheel drive luxury sedan slotted between the mid size Hyundai Sonata sedan and the super luxury Hyundai Genesis. luxury means that the Azera offers nearly everything sold on a much more expensive car as standard equipment and at a lower price.
Engine/transmission: It comes standard with a 3.3 liter, gasoline direct injection, 24 valve, V 6 engine with electronically controlled variable valve lift and timing (293 horsepower, 255 foot pounds of torque). The engine is linked to a six speed automatic transmission that also can be operated manually.
Capacities: There are seats for five people. Cargo capacity with rear seats up is 16.3 cubic feet. The fuel tank holds 18.5 gallons. This one runs fine on regular gasoline. There is no need for or grades for better performance.
Mileage: I averaged 17 miles per gallon in the city and 26 on the highway. The Environmental Protection Agency rating for this car is 20 mpg city and 29 highway. Dealer invoice price on that model is $29,864. Price as tested is $32,900, including $25 for an on board first aid kit and an $875 destination charge. Dealer price as tested is $30,759.
