E is for Easter.

I know it all seems a bit early to be thinking about Easter, but if we look at the time frame to get things to our Diggers, then now's a good time.

So is there anything particular we can send?

I know that chocolate is frowned upon due to it's inability to withstand high temperatures, but I did once send a small chunk of gianduja chocolate to a mate in Iraq. I put it in the freezer for a while, then wrapped it in a layer of newspaper for insulation before posting it.

It did survive the trip, and was greatly appreciated.

One thing about that, though, is that this wasn't a thin piece of chocolate a la most easter eggs, so I'm thinking that bags of small solid choc eggs would be the way to go on that front.

Also, there are things other than chocolate out there that could be considered.

I'm getting up a collection of these eggs. They're only around $2.50 ea, so adding one to the shopping bag each week isn't breaking my bank.

If you have any other suggestions of things to add that would be specific to Easter, please feel free to tell us.
