You do want the Sacc yeast in both of the blends to ferment the bulk of the sugars, mostly to drive up the alcohol and kill off more of the bad tasting bacteria that could have made it into your beer. More than likely you are fine, but if you didn't see any activity for that high of a starting gravity you might want to add more Sacc yeast. Anything will work, I prefer a fruitier Belgian strain, but if you have some on hand I'd pitch that.
You are right, everything was ok. I finally got some dry yeast and was ready to pitch it, but there was no need. I moved it to a glass carboy and there was good yeast growth, with a cake at the bottom. Just one of those cases where no activity in the air lock, must have been a small leak somewhere in the seal. Thanks!
