(Laughing...) is it possible to send him a message?

Sorry Biri...no

comment, private message and e-mail- not enabled.

Without the possibility to leave a message it's kinda boring...isn't it?

(Help me...)

Kotooshu's official blog is not accessible this morning:

琴欧州オフィシャルブログへのアクセスありがとうございます。ただいま、このサイトへのアクセスが集中しており、表示することができません。誠に申し訳ありませんが、もう暫くお待ちいただき、再度アクセスをお願いします。

Perhaps too much traffic for the yusho winner...

They're related and I like red snapper too but we can't get sea bream here, just red snapper.

Oh and speaking of Ozeki Sake this picture made me want to buy some! So I did... and I know everyone said it was awful. Perhaps I'm just a cheap date but I like it! Just had it at room temperature so far but I will try it chilled and hot later.

I went with my father to a hot springs.

Bulgarian hot springs and Japanese hot springs are different.

In Bulgaria we go to the hot springs when we are sick.

It was fun.

Ah, toplice (spa in Croatian)! Although lately our spas have become more resorts and less recuperation places, most of the client

Hand grip power-right hand-120 kilos

.

Rather impressive grip strength there.

I think mine is 68 kg or there about!

I took my kids to the Ontario Science Centre on the weekend and they have a space/Mars exhibit going on right now. What does this have to do with sumo? Well, with pressurized gloves in space suits it is difficult to move your hands so you need a lot of gripping strength and thus they had a grip strength tester you could try and a chart of average by sex and age. I was surprised that men have maximum strength more in middle age than in youth which makes me wonder if the yotsu sumo is better later on. The average for men around my age is 50kg. My right grip was 80kg while my left was only 55kg (non-dominant hand and had it reconstructed 9 years ago and it never got back to 100%). Osh's 120kg is very impressive!

Kotooshu does nor have much to tell to the audience, but at least it's easy to read :-) and it's always nice to see a smiling Osh.

Some more pics from LA, he enjoyed the jungyo and some more pics of Sadogatake's/Osh's training with the kids.

After training Kotooshu allows himself a chestnut cake and he shows a similar pic with Shoki as Kotoshogiku in his blog.

Fay, that's a shu cream. It's not a chestnut cake.

Maybe, you got confused by the similarities of くるみ and クリム. I don't know.

Love ya,

A "shu" cream is from the French word "chou" which means cabbage.

Because the cream puff looks like a cabbage it's called a chou a la creme.

When chou becomes Japanese it's written しゅー which when changed to roman letters becomes shu.

Mind you in 20 years I've forgotten a lot about the US and some English... ;-) This is scary...

Anyway I thought I used to eat this way back in Junior High they were called Cream Puffs there!

Though I think the Chou cream here in Japan are much better!

Oh my God, Kotooshu is getting active with his blog .....

Sadogatake stable is located in Ichinomiya city during Nagoya Basho. In the moment the Tanabata festival (we already read about it on Shoki's blog) takes place and Kotooshu would like to go there ...

You're all wrong. It's Japanese for eclair, and it comes from "shoe-cream"-looks like a shoe filled with cream. The shape is a bit different, but there you have it!

No?
