    It is yet another dillution of standards, tradition, etc - its the association I suppose with the slang , casualness of the word - but then I am of that age I suppose (50+)

    I thought DCSF stood for Department of Cushions and Soft Furnishings, so I'm not sure how that works...?

    You sound like my missus Anorak.

    To quote Chris on SupportNet (Christmas lights thread):
    According to the DCSF (Dept of Christmas, Sleighs and Fairies), claus S, there must be 2 orange lights for Elf and Safety reasons.

    Undertaking a quick bit of research, Kid is not a new phenomenon. Think about Billy the Kid, Charlie Chaplin's film The Kid.

    It seem that it may have originated in the late 1500s and may be a derivative of the Germanic 'Kind'.

    Possibly the word Kid was used for a young goat after the name for a human child.

    So I will feel no shame for calling my site (which needs a complete revamp over the holiday with updates during my trip in February) www.KidsAfrica.co.uk .

    By the way I'm 53, Anorak (not that I look it ;-) )
