Default [Dixonary] Round 3042 SAROS Defs

First of all, apologies again to Dan Widdis for losing his def, or rather
for allowing my spreadsheet to ignore it - he gets two dealer points.
Efrem Mallach is the winner, with 4 votes for his Greek dancing area, so
gets a double (or is it triple?) back-to-back deal. Debbie Embler, Dave
Cunningham, and Mike Shefler scored 3 points each to become the real
winners in second place. Mike Shefler and Tony Abell guessed correctly that
SAROS is the Babylonian name for the number 3600, leaving me with a D2.

Over to you Efrem - again!
