Had to mention "Costco" again, this is every single week, get over it, it's not the end of the world.

It's sad when many people are having trouble paying for gas and heat but there are enough people here who can utterly waste a couple hundred bucks to open TWO overpriced sunglass stores.

Whole Foods is a great store and it would be great to have one in the Lehigh Valley. But there is a store in Montgomeryville, right on 309, and that really isn't that far to drive for quality food.

The intersection is too dangerous where the ice cream stand is. It's nice that someone bought it, but it's too dangerous to pull in and out of.

And I agree with Bossy Gillis about Costco. It's getting old seeing the referral to Costco each week. They need to get over it.

Grrrrrrrrrrrrrr. Mariella, I really think you are doing this to get under our skin. I had to comment on this on Sunday, and now I am telling you again...Knock it off with the Costco references!

As Dangerous intersection and Bossy Gillis already mentioned, we got over it, now you need to do the same.

Kurt, we miss you more and more with each column.

Here is a word I know all these whiny people want to here... COSTCO. It's something people want. Personally I have never been to one so I do not miss it. COSTCO COSTCO COSTCO I hope they mention it every week for each of you above.

ICE Cream World Products are the best around ? I hope this CHIRO knows more about CHIRO work than ice cream -- What a joke - It is for sure the cheapest ice cream around and one taste of it will confirm why !

We have been to the whole foods down 309, after we visited the costco, I would definately go to costco more than whole foods, that store down 309 is way too tiny, it's so hard to get around when the store is packed full, I would take a Trader Joes over whole foods any day, but would prefer a costco over all of them. I do see a pattern though, I think the more we mention costco ( with a t), the more likely we will get one.
