Great job as usual Geoff.

SORTIED
BEERS
x- (9-6)*75-10=215 1 away (went over time)
POTTIES
CHASED
8 away- won't even bother posting - grrr...
MANNA
(9-2)*100-75/25=697
x - jumped in with wrong and too short AMMONIA. Hadn't heard of word.

Oooh, I like SORTIED. I'll generally find STEROID instead from that mix, but wish I'd seen SORTIED.

Apologies a bit for the conundrum -- I realise it was a bit iffy.
