First, thanks too all of you for your hints and suggestions.  I still don't know what I will do withe these dates, although eating them out of hand is sounding better and better.  The gentleman who gave them to me mentioned that dates are very good for you immune system.  Since I have been fighting bronchitis for over 10 days.....

The only thing on the box they came in was the word Bateel.  When I Googled this, I found that Bateel was the company in Dubai where the dates came from.  On their website, they had some pretty good pictures of the dates they sell.  Compairing my dates to the pictures, I believe that these particular dates are their Dekkini variety.   I did a search for Dekkini dates, and came up with only 2 pages of links!  Most of the links were for sites that were in languages I could not read.  Although, from what I could tell, most of them had nothing to do with dates that are the eating kind.  Things like "Magic the Gathering",  "Pokemon", and "My Space" were a few of the readable words!

I've been rambling, sorry for that. 

Thanks again,

Try defining the type of date you're looking for.  Adding "medjool" to the 
search further limits the search.

As for storing dates, try http://www.medjooldates.com/nutrition.html
