Default [Dixonary] Rnd 2979 TURBA Results

This was a round with unfortunate timing for which I apologize. I did
not notice when I announced the word that my non-digital watch had
somehow gained 24 hours so...Anyway:

I also played a word which was very close to TURB which Dave C played
quite recently and it was only afterwards that I checked out alternative
meanings for my word which alternative meanings were those of the simple
word TURB - a crowd or a collection of loose stones such as are found at
the bottom of a slope - so #3, #7 and #8 were possible correct answers.
However, the real answer (with the A on the end) the musical religious
term #1 which garnered me a D2

Judy Madnick and Nancy Shepherdson each scored┬* 4 points and as Judy is
ahead on the rolling scores she is our next dealer The real winner is
therefore Nancy on 4 with Dave Cunningham, Shani Naylor and Chris Carson
with 3 points each

Over to you Judy
