Ever since Alli Warren drove from Los Angeles to Oakland, in a flash, picking up Kasey Mohammed in Santa Cruz on the way, and arriving at Stephanie Young's reading/party before me (I was 15 minutes away in the Berkeley hills), looking as relaxed as if she had arrived from next door, I have been inordinately fond of her blog title Five Fingers Strong because, among other things, she must have some strong hands to drive like that, and secondly, she's very nice and I think of "five fingers strong" also as a "high five."

So, Alli, if you like "The Ingredient", fine, a blog by you by any name would smell as sweet (enjoy your photos too!), but , I vote for keeping it as Five Fingers Strong.
