In basic terms, It will translate all your source addresses matched by the criteria in access-list 111 to the address of the dialer interface

Does that mean
access-list 111 deny   ip any
will not get translated and thus its source address in the packet will remain as it was when originally sent from the device?

And the overload command, any particular meaning?

yes that's right condition matching "access-list 111 deny   ip any" will not get translated and will be routed

The overload statement enables the router to use the ONE IP address on the dialer interface for MANY inside addresses

No longer do I have to sit and stare thinking 'What' but can move on to other lines of code to think 'What' about.
Thank you
