Debate goes on
In response to the February
Debate, “Should dating co-workers
sign a ‘love contract’?”
NO. Any contract that is not upheld or
enforced is useless, and in a “politically correct” society this will never fly.

YES. Employee guidelines are necessary to
the workplace. Relationships have the potential to affect both employees’ performance.
Having clear, concise directives in writing
may avoid a difficult situation.
Odds and ends
The Connection is
While reading the latest edition of The
Connection, I realized I wasn’t flipping to the
back of the magazine to finish articles. What a
unique concept! I read a lot of magazines and
newspapers and find I’m constantly flipping
towards the back to finish an article. Once finished I have to find where I was to continue
through the issue. It is annoying and slows me
down. Thank you for the thoughtful layout
and interesting articles.

Belly up to the
(ice cream) bar
We often eat lunch at the
Food Court, and always reminisce about the wonderful nutty
bars (ice cream bars dipped in
chocolate and nuts), which are
no longer served. They were the
best, and the best buy in town!

If they weren’t profitable,
the price could have been raised
a dollar and still would be
Costco members will be glad to know that
the ice cream bars are coming back to all Costco
locations in April—and the price remains
unchanged at $1.50.

A novel approach
After reading the article and favorite book
lists by some of your book buyers [“Book
Table Fable,” November 2008], I want to thank
the young lady [book buyer Pennie Clark
Ianniciello] who recommended Wallace
Stegner’s Angle of Repose. What a great read! I
love discovering new (to me) authors and
then devouring their works. I am very grateful
that you published her ideas.

Praise for David
I enjoyed the article
on David Murdock, the
owner of Dole [“Let’s eat
right,” January 2009], and
I’m glad he is encouraging
people to eat wholesome,
low-fat foods. My daughter
doesn’t eat meat, eggs or
dairy products, and I’m trying to eat better myself, so I
always keep an eye out for
new vegan foods when I’m
Some body out there likes us
I loved the [Member Connection] article
regarding artist Tehila Eisenstat and the pictures of the swim forms that were painted [“A
body of art,” January 2009]. About five years
ago I bought a bathing suit at Costco, and
made a collage for my son with the form. I
used gold glue and lots of pictures from various magazines about things that were relevant

The “dish” on green
I purchased some of the
environmentally friendly items
featured in your article [Buying Smart:
“Soap Dish,” February 2009], and I couldn’t
be happier. Prior to discovering these products, I had bought several other so-called eco-minded products, only to find out that they
weren’t what they claimed to be. Hopefully,
your article will save others from making the
same frustrating mistakes. I am so thankful
that Kirkland Signature chooses to make
responsible products that are also affordable
