: : Re TV graphics "...to help all you homeys and honeys add a new flava to your tickers and dekkos"
: : Would appreciate some input here. By "homeys and honeys," is more meant than "guys and gals"?
: : "flava" obviously means "flavor," but is a ticker the same as a crawler? As far as I can tell, "dekko" is a quick look. Could that mean a brief excposure in a commerical slot?
: : Thanks for your itnerest -- DH
: 'Dekko'/'Decko' is indeed a look. It comes from the Hindi 'dekho' meaning 'look!'. Late 19thC and clearly brought back from India by British troops.
Your heart is sometimes called your 'ticker', but whether that has anything to do with what you're talking about i'm not sure....
